Monday Minute: Spider-Men II

This Monday Minute comes from issue 1 of the Spider-Men II mini-series by Brian Michael Bendis, Sara Pichelli, and Mark Bagley. This was a decently fun series (the art was excellent), but I wouldn't say it was a particularly memorable mini. However, there was one particular moment that I found especially awesome. Of course, I am slightly biased, as it involves one of favorite characters (who is also severely underrated)...


This story finds two Spider-Men, Peter and Miles, working together to solve a mystery that involves another Miles. I'm not going to get into the details of it. If you are interested, just go read it. It's only five issues and you can buy it in trade. All you need to know is that Peter and Miles are working on a problem, then an unexpected guest shows up (queue me, chuckling with giddiness).

That's right, Taskmaster drops in. That by itself is awesome. He is always a welcomed cameo. The part that makes this moment memorable is the way he drops in. Peter dialogues a little about him, almost as if he were introducing him at a sporting event. Then Taskmaster, like a boss, simply says, "Damn right."

Have a look...

Can I also add that the art here is super dope? Cuz it's super dope. This moment is actually what got me to add the book to my pull list at the time (2017). I was kind of on the fence about it, but with an appearance like this, I had to keep reading. Hope you enjoyed.

Happy Monday, nerds!
