    Major Spoilers - Rob Rasmussen Mar 19, 2012

    Yost has been doing a great job with this title. The story is entertaining, the people are interesting and believable, and I can't wait to see more. Heck, he even set up the doctor/officer relationship two issues ago without me noticing. Great artwork and a fun, enjoyable story earn this title 4.5 out of 5 stars. The only point that makes me wonder is how easily Kaine is willing to take off his mask in front of people, though that might be another great piece to the character in the future. Read Full Review

    Given my low opinion of the Spider-Man franchise at the moment, I realize that declaring Scarlet Spider as my favorite spider book isn't saying a whole lot. I do truly enjoy this series, though. It could stand some more appropriate art and to not play it quite so safe with Kaine's darkness, but it does a lot right. I never imagined I would find Houston such an interesting setting for a book, and I am really becoming sold on the idea of Kaine as the new Scarlet Spider. Read Full Review

    Ryan Stegman's artwork continues to improve as well. This issue packs in some fluidly dynamic action scenes and some great character interaction and facial work. If Stegman has already improved this much, it should be a treat to see what level he's at a few stories down the road. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Geoff Arbuckle Mar 15, 2012

    Ryan Stegman is still doing a great job with the art. The visuals almost match the story and script from Yost perfectly. There's a lighthearted quality that is fun to look at, but each page still features a striking panel or two that can be put up next to some of the cooler Spider-Man visuals. There's just a good feel to this book that is fun to read and I'm ready for the next issue already! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Adam J. Langton Mar 15, 2012

    Kaine's life is swiftly becoming something entirely different than it ever was before and Yost & Stegman's work ideally captures the dizzying effects on the character and the breakneck speed of events on the page. "Scarlet Spider" #3 is a superhero comic about a man who isn't yet certain if he fits the superhero mold -- or if he ever cares to. As we make up our own minds about the character and direction, the comic ensures we'll be thoroughly entertained along the way. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 19, 2012

    Although I'm a little concerned that Kaine doesn't understand the basic concept of a secret identity (a doctor, cop, bartender, assassin, and a smuggled illegal immigrant all know he's the Scarlet Spider) things look pretty good for this title with plenty of action and some really good Spidey narration – Kaine-style. Best of the week. Read Full Review

    It's taken me three issues to figure it out, but here goes " Scarlet Spider is a '90s comic that has been printed years after its time. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Mar 16, 2012

    Supporting characters are starting to appear like Dr. Meland, Aracely & Annabelle the red-headed bartender & possible love interest for Kaine. Some intense moments like when Kaine threatens a mugger in ways that Spider-Man never would & his fisticuffs with the sniper. Ouch! Some tough looking baddies are introduced that will eventually spell trouble for our web-spinning protagonist. Im just loving this series. Written by Chris Yost (Amazing Spider-Man) & illustrated by Ryan Stegman (Spider-Man : The Return Of Anti-Venom) whos artwork Im really digging. From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review
