    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Dec 12, 2012

    This is the perfect jumping on point after the events of 'Minimum Carnage' and pretty much feels like Kaine 101. We get a detailed look at the anti-hero's supporting cast, a strong emphasis on who Kaine truly is, and of course, a funtastic action sequence. Who doesn't want to see Kaine take on robbers dressed as Santa? Come on! Read Full Review

    Yost continues to impress me with his writing abilities. To be brutally honest when they first announced Scarlet Spider as a series I all but dismissed it. I thought it wouldnt make 6 issues let alone 12. Now I cant stop reading it and with the upcoming Marvel Now! Launch of Superior Spider-Man this may just be the only Spider book I read for a while.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 15, 2012

    This issue was a definite palette cleanser after Minimum Carnage, possibly for writer Christopher Yost as well. I definitely got the sense that he used this issue to re-establish his character and his cast and put all that Microverse nonsense behind him. And I am definitely glad for that. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Dec 13, 2012

    In the end, his issue is a great jumping on point for new readers too. All you need to know about Kaine Parker in one issue, plusa cliffhanger that will most likely tie in to the end of Amazing Spider-Man somehow. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Dec 13, 2012

    Scarlet Spider #12 has got to be one of the most entertaining comics I've reviewed for this site so far. On almost every possible level the creative team knocked this story out of the proverbial park. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    This issue is such a great holiday gift from Marvel to us.It's a little like Kaine-101, and for someone like me who is not following Scarlet Spider properly, it is a good read. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 17, 2012

    The comic continues to tease the abilities of Aracely, play on the guilt of our main character, and provide plenty of opportunities to prove to everyone (including himself) that he is indeed a hero. (And the cover's pretty cool, too.) Merry Christmas. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    X-Man's Comic Blog - Jason Todd Dec 17, 2012

    But I enjoyed this issue, Kaine finally feeling like he has a home and having friends is a great step in the right direction for him, and Christ Yost, a man who's writing I didn't care for a year ago, has made me a fan thanks to his great job on this series. This is probably my favorite Spider title besides the main book, and that's saying something considering how many there are! Read Full Review
