In 1990 French comic book artist extraordinaire Moebius painted seven images featuring some of Marvel Comics most iconic characters: Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Punisher, Daredevil, Elektra, Wolverine and The Thing. The paintings were released as posters in 1990 and quickly went out of print.

I simply love these paintings and how can you not love Moebius excellent illustration style. Just fantastic. He is one of the greats.

“Nemesis” is a creator-owned comic book limited series written by Mark Millar, drawn by Steve McNiven and was published by the Icon Comics imprint of Marvel Comics in 2010.

The plot… The supervillain Nemesis destroys a building in Tokyo, killing a SWAT team and a police inspector. In Washington, D.C., the FBI informs metro police Chief Inspector Blake Morrow that Nemesis is targeting him next. He is given a card reading “Blake Morrow, March 12th at midnight, Flatline still counts”. Morrow has his family put in protective custody. Nemesis hijacks Air Force One over the District of Columbia, taking the United States president hostage and crashing the plane into Washington D.C., killing hundreds. Nemesis makes an international broadcast, revealing the President hostage in front of him, and finishing it by saying: “It’s time you hail your new fucking Chief”…

This is one of those one of a kind comic books you sometimes just happens to pick up and buy. “Nemesis” has a great twisted story by Mark Millar and drawn fantastically by Steve McNiven. Read it.
