    My personal feelings about the upcoming elements aside, SCARLET SPIDER continues to consistently be one of Marvel's most entertaining books. Always packed with exciting action, an interesting supporting cast and a firm focus on Kaine's development, it's truly a surprise this book is only $2.99 in a world of $3.99 titles. The only thing really holding this issue down was some seemingly hurried artwork. Aside from that, it's yet another must read for any Kaine fan. Read Full Review

    There's several different artists this issues and it shows in a lot of panels. But the fight scene is incredibly well done and the container of people baking in the desert was just ridiculously haunting. Read Full Review

    Like I said, it's a solid issue. The fight scene is cool, and Kaine is pretty awesome as the man-spider-monster. Though personally, I'm not interested in Kaine insisting he's some kind of monster. I want him to embrace his heroism. It's a minor gripe, though. I'm sure Yost is going to give us some great stories going forward. He definitely has a lot in mind, and I like his exploration of Mexican mythology"at least I think that's what he's doing. He could just be making up Mexican-sounding names for all I know. At the very least, he's creating some Mexican-themed super-villains, and that's a win in my book. They don't necessarily have anything to do with Kaine, but he's going to fight them nonetheless. I'm looking forward to it. Read Full Review

    I just hope the decision to cut this arc short just as the drama began to really flow will turn out for the best. I was hoping for a bigger bang to finish out this story. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Kassim Mirza Apr 1, 2013

    Scarlet Spider #15 ends by showing us the forces that Kaine has stirred and previewing how they'll affect him. It's safe to say that our favorite neighborhood spider-monster has a lot coming his way in the upcoming months. Is all of it exciting? Honestly, no. But that doesn't mean there aren't great things in the works for Kaine. However, the most important thing to take away from Scarlet Spider #15's ending is that Kaine seems more in-touch with his inner monster. In fact, he acknowledges that he IS a monster. This diverges from the clichd, happy-go-lucky ending one would expect. And honestly, it's this self-defeating aspect of Kaine that keeps me coming back to Scarlet Spider. It's an interesting character trait that keeps things fresh and unique. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 3, 2013

    Other than adding new enemies for Scarlet Spider, this short arc merely restated the comic's main theme (hero or killer) that's so ingraned in the series it really didn't need to be reintroduced so forcefully. I'm glad human Kaine is back, but far less sure of the Vertigo-esque path the comic appears to be going down (which, from comic's last few pages, looks sure to continue in the coming months). Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review

    Being such a big Spidey fan, I keep buying this book. Every month, I'm disappointed. I don't like Khoi Pham's art: that's probably the biggest problem. It's just sloppy as hell. Ironically, the last few pages of this book were penciled by someone else (Edwards I think?) and those pages were great. Also, I'm not a big fan of Kaine dying and coming back. It's been done before with Spider-Man in "The Other," not to mention that this story stole several facets of the reborn Spider's appearance, including wrist-spikes. I strongly dislike the villains present in the last few arcs... or maybe Pham just doesn't draw them well....idk. Yost is capable of better, as illustrated by his fantastic Avenging work coming out.
