Which book does it take place in exactly?

Omaha's KETV7 reports that a mother is offended by a Spider-Man book being offered at the city's library because of unsuitable sexual content:
MILLARD, Neb. -- A Millard mother said she's upset by a comic book that she considers sexually explicit that is in her son's elementary school library.

The comic is part of a popular new series about Spider-Man and the head librarian of the Millard School District said it's been in high demand.

"My son looked at this and goes, 'Ohhhh!'" said Physha Svendsen.

She said the book that her 6-year-old son brought home is not age-appropriate for Norris Elementary School students and wants it removed from the library.

"It has a lot of sexual undertones in here, as far as sexuality goes," she said. "They can learn this through any other place, but it's not something I allow them to learn, in my house at least."
I can probably understand the concern here, but is this in the post-Brand New Day material in ASM that they're talking about? Main problem with this article is that it doesn't make clear where this is taking place.

And in all due honesty, I think it's a shame if this is what makes headlines instead of excessive, tasteless violence that's also been finding its way into comics like these in the past several years.

Update: here's another report on this from 10News that's got a video.

Update 2: Spider-Man Crawl Space reports that it's from the Revelations trade published 7 years ago.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
