    Superior Spider-Talk - Tony Goodwyn Jan 22, 2015

    With exhilarating action, dynamic art, and a plot that both ends one story satisfactorily while feeding uncertainly into another, Scarlet Spiders #3 is a study in how to effectively tell a side story that supports a larger narrative. Definitely one of the bright spots in the "Spider-Verse" saga. Read Full Review

    Mike Costa wraps up this Spider-Verse tie-in with an epic showdown between the Scarlet Spiders and Jennix the immortal clone-master. The stakes are high throughout, which only makes the conclusion all the more powerful. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 24, 2015

    The final chapter of Scarlet Spiders is full of action, but it mostly comes through as a whimper. The Spider-Verse tie-in accomplishes everything it needs to accomplish and sets the stage for the rest of Spider-Verse, but as a stand alone adventure, it's pretty light. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jan 23, 2015

    "Scarlet Spiders" #3 suffers from being a sidebar tale that has expanded to fill the space available. Costa gives Ben Reilly some humorous lines, but those few lines aren't enough to string out the inevitable in anything resembling a successful manner, and the comic just limps along, like its stars, to the end.

    This issue was 95% action and a fitting end to the miniseries. The first half wasn't great at was sitting at a 6/10 for me, but a great ending helped redeem this issue. One issue I had was with Diaz's rendering of Black Widow/Jessica Drew. However, the series succeeded in making me interested in three characters I had never been interested in before. if you've followed this series make sure to read this before Amazing #13 too!
