I think there's a complete boxset now. It's so much better than any TV show you have ever seen.

Nemesis 3 Review
I'm not liking this series nearly as much as I normally enjoy Millar's work. It started out decently enough with issue one, was followed by an ok issue two, and then a lame ass issue three. This is just generic by the numbers super hero shock stuff. None of the three secrets were that big of a deal imo and they lessened the impact of the brother impregnating his sister by just having her be inseminated. I don't like rape in my comics but this was just kind of lame. I don't really care about the cop and this series didn't have enough time to build up Nemesis either. With just one issue left I am glad this series is ending so that Millar can focus on Kick Ass and hopefully Superior will be much better.
I just hope the success of Kick Ass didn't go to his head but i'm afraid it might have since he did this obviously for a movie and superior will probably follow suit.
Mcniven also is not putting up his best stuff here either. He's great at the big splash pages but I just don't think he's all that great when people are just standing around talking. He shows emotion well enough but he's certainly not blowing me away here.
Very disappointed with this showing by Millar and Mcniven, hopefully Millar can turn his next series around.

I don't get the hate for this. I thought it was fun and completely over the top. Yes the incest thing is gross, and this isn't really a smart comic, but the violence was cool and I think McNiven stepped up his art here from the first two issues
Some of the revealations aren't very big. Ooh he has a gay son. Big deal. His wife suddenly hating him felt out of place too. Still this comic didn't commit the ultimate sin: It wasn't boring.
