    Having read "Kraven's Last Hunt" back in the day, I can say that this storyline's proven to be a worthy successor to DeMatteis/Zeck classic. In fact, it actually surpasses it in many ways. This is one of those rare "house-cleaing" stories that's manages to make the task of getting a bunch of characters in line genuinely engaging and even quite thrilling. I recommned this arc.

    Ultimately, "Grim Hunt" wasn't quite the epic finish to "The Gauntlet" I might have expected given the creators involved. When it comes to Peter's struggle, the emotional core rings a bit hollow. But there are still plenty of admirable qualities to be found in this last issue, and I doubt many readers will feel their $3.99 was wasted. Read Full Review

    Kraven the Hunter is back and wants to end it all with Spider-man. It turns out that it was Kaine that was sacrificed last issue and now the web is turning against Kraven and his family. Can Spider-man restore cosmic order? First, the explanation for how Kaine replaced Peter Parker was totally wrong. It didnt make sense. Why Spider-man was dressed in his black costume also didnt make any sense. His sudden anger also didnt make sense. How easy it was for him to defeat all of Kravens family after a year of failing to do so didnt make sense. I guess not much made sense this issue. Marvel Comics wanted Kraven back after his suicide years ago and thats all this story was about. It certainly didnt feel like a Spider-man story. Where was Peter Parkers plight? Where was his dumb bad luck? This issue was disappointing and Spider-man as a series is starting to lose the freshness that the reboot over a year a year ago with his marriage to Mary Jane Watson being erased was supposed to accomplish.

    A bit hasty and rushed, but otherwise, I enjoyed this issue. While I think there's some wasted potential with the various killings and resurrections, the story was good when it needed to be and delivered the action in spades. Not the best arc, but still recommended reading if you enjoy SpiderMan. Read Full Review
