    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #17 proves that "Hunted" is a story no Spider-Man fan should miss. The build up was perfect, and now the arc itself looks to make good on all that hype. Nick Spencer delivers his most gripping Spidey tale yet, while Ramos, Delgado, and Olazaba pull you in with their pitch-perfect pages. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 13, 2019

    Humberto Ramos does some truly magnificent art in this issue with some dramatic camera angles in the panels as well as beautiful details. A great looking issue with an engaging story. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Mar 17, 2019

    brilliantly colored and created a painfully intense fight scene. I wasn't, and I'm still not blown away by the Hunted plot but in this issue, I was blown away by the structure of the opening three scenes. It began with Kraven, then Spider-Man, and finally Blackcat. They all had their respective introspections tied into the situation at hand. That artistic choice really impressed me and alongside Ramos' art made this a comic to remember. Read Full Review

    "Hunted" is a crucial Spider-Man story you can't afford to miss. Nick Spencer's ASM run keeps getting better and better. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Mar 14, 2019

    Amazing Spider-Man #17 was a great start to this "The Hunted" storyline and really just a fantastic read. Spencer does a superb job with not only the story and plot, but all the characters involved. The art team does a fantastic job as well, delivering some stand out pages. There are a lot of issues coming out for this storyline (it has a checklist) coming out bi-weekly so the artist will change, but if we keep switching between Ramos and Ottley then we are in for a heck of a ride!

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 14, 2019

    Amazing Spider-Man #17 was a strong start to the "Hunted" story arc. Nick Spencer properly built up the hunt that Kraven the Hunter has set up for Spider-Man, Black Cat and others to be extremely dangerous. Having Humberto Ramos on board helped add to how big this story felt. Hopefully every chapter that follows can continue the momentum created by Amazing Spider-Man #17. If they can "Hunted" could very well go down as one of the best modern Spider-Man stories. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Mar 15, 2019

    "Hunted" gets off to a high-stakes, slam-bang start that manages to keep itself rooted in the characterization of its protagonist, Kraven. And despite his inherent limitations as a normal (i.e. non-superpowered) man going up against a superhero, Kraven proves why he has endured as a first-class Spider-Man villain for over 50 years.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Branden Mar 16, 2019

    Overall I find the Hunted to be on the brink of being very interesting, but the book is struggling to find a true focus in my eyes, to make the story feel as epic as the creative team wants us to believe. Sure Kraven has his reasons but, its odd they continue to be different every single issue, moving everything we setup previously behind shifting to something new we then haven't. It's good but not something I'm rushing to recommend it to anyone just yet. Read Full Review

    Effectively sets up the event while laying the groundwork for a different kind of Kraven. Read Full Review
