    You find yourself torn between which Scarlet Spider you agree with and root for, all while all of Kaine's friends are being kidnapped one by one. Also the twist ending has you begging for more! Read Full Review

    If you've ever considered giving SCARLET SPIDER a chance, now is most definitely the time to do so (I couldn't bear to see this canceled after we've lost VENOM, dammit!). There's a more than adequate intro page which will bring you up to speed on what Kaine has been through and who the people in his life are. Once you're done with that, it's time for an action heavy issue which also lays the groundwork for some very troubling times ahead for Kaine. Seeing as Yost and Burnham have 3 issues to flesh this tale out, I have more than enough reason to believe this has the potential to be seriously grim and compelling stuff. Can we please have the next issue right now? Read Full Review

    Even if it wasn't everything I wanted, Scarlet Spider #21 was more than I ever expected so I can't really complain too much, can I? (Yes I can, I still want that awesome costume back in the Marvel Universe! C'mon, Marvel prove you really are the House of Ideas and find a way to give us two Scarlet Spiders every month!) Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Scarlet Spider is a fun, fine comic. I don't think it's anything special or spectacular, but it's got a fun cast, a cool main character and enough fanboy glee to keep me happy. The art by Carlo Barberi and David Baldeon is to my liking. They draw a pretty great fight scene. The issue does a great job of delving into the character's history and using it to set up the next, big issue. I can't wait. Read Full Review
