    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Nov 27, 2013

    Yost and Burnham juggle a lot of material here yet still successfully provide a character-driven chapter and understandably so given what went down in "Into the Grave." We've seen Kaine walk the "I suck at being a hero" road plenty of times before, but given the sheer weight of everything surrounding him, it's a completely justified and well-executed path. The only thing really bringing this chapter down is a sometimes sketchier style which doesn't really fit all that well with the bold coloring -- it unfortunately comes off as rushed. It's too bad there's only one issue left in the series but here's hoping they'll make the best of it. Read Full Review

    The issue pretty much deals directly with the outcome of Kraven on Kains friends, as we saw at the end of last issue, not everyone is to happy with him. So much so that they found out just who exactly Kain used to be. That's not all that this is about though, plenty of other very strange things start happening, it's nice to know Chris didn't just sit back and let the last couple issue go by, he's looking to take Scarlet Spider out with a bang and as sad as it's going to be, I can't wait to see how it all ends in Scarlet Spider #25.

    The penultimate chapter in Christopher Yost's Scarlet Spider really exhibits what fans might miss most from the series: its comedy. Yost, Burnham, and Baldeon really outdid themselves by totally going in the opposite direction of what one might expect, after a bloody last issue. This "webtastic" issue was the result.

    I'm going to miss this book, and although news has it that Scarlet Spider will be continuing to enjoy life with a new version of the New Warriors (hopefully with Aracely along for the ride and a Guardians of the Galaxy costume for Vance Astrovik) it won't be the same. Worth a look. Read Full Review
