But his job as a one-hour-photo developer proves to be his most challenging yet, when Daily Bugle shutterbug Peter Parker "swings" by for help with a tricky roll of film! Petey's no slouch with a negative, but Logan's the Best At What He Does --- something's gotta give! The most overprinted miniseries of the year rolls along!

Ah, yes. Read the post, Jason. Read the post.

Stumble on the blog, first time here, looks like another 'ole "Marvel soliciting post" so I mindlessly scroll down and the "Aunt May" cover catches my eye (obviously).

And I fell for it.

For like four seconds - but I totally fell for it.

Funny stuff.

Dang but that's some funny stuff. Aunt May ravishing her way across Europe is frightening.

Stacy X appearence? I must have that X-Men book right now! Make it happen chris!

Or else.

But "Aunt May"? Dear God man, what is wrong with you?

May Parker is a fiend at canasta, not baccarrat.
