  • 10 - Adam Barnhardt May 29, 2019

    All in all, "Hunted" left a bit more to be desired but issue-by-issue, #22 is by and large the best"and most important"comic of the event. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Alec Thorn Jun 3, 2019

    A fantastic climax to the ongoing Hunted storyline that gives great resolutions to the hero and villain, while everything else looks to be fully resolved next issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence May 31, 2019

    Humberto Ramos continues the theme of murder by just killing this art. This book's theme-appropriate darkness accentuates the villains' menace and also Spider-Man's in his black suit when he starts to beat Kraven's ass. There's a small panel that spoke to me for some reason that was solid white with Kraven punching Spidey in the face with "KRAK". I can't wait for the (presumably) last issue of this arc. I'm either going to be devastated or relieved but there will probably be tears. Read Full Review

    While "Hunted" as been pretty hit-or-miss, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #22 delivers the ending this arc needed. This is Kraven the Hunter at his finest. Spencer breaks the character down and gives meaning to his madness, while Ramos, Delgado, and Arciniega capture all the action with mixed results. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin May 29, 2019

    "HUNTED" is a must-read for any Spider-Man fan. Nick Spencer is exactly who needs to be writing Spidey right now. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 29, 2019

    Humberto Ramos delivers some impressively detailed art with an emphasis on great action. There are some great panels in this issue that seem full of movement and intensity. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - olddeserthymnal May 30, 2019

    Yes this book is a little meandering, but I find it enjoyable. A couple of the subplot aspects could probably have been dispensed with, and conversely some of the plot points of this issue might have done better with a little bit more time to breathe. The situation with Mary Jane seems to be handled too briefly and I think the plotline probably didn't need to have the Vulture angle which seems to have overly complicated the story arc. That said, there is enjoyment to be had from this and Spencer, to my eyes has maintained a good standard since taking over this title. This issue does nothing to damage that position.

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester May 29, 2019

    I wouldn’t call Hunted a straight dud, but it could have been so much more. The pacing has been its most obvious flaw, and the logical gymnastics that the resolution had to give readers will probably leave many scratching their heads. It didn’t help that the spin-off issues had much better artwork than the main story did. I… liked Hunted overall, but I find myself thinking about its potential more than its reality. I’m ready to move on. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux May 31, 2019

    I didn't dislike reading this issue at all. It's still a strong character piece for Kraven and Spider-Man with great art, it just lacks much more beyond that. As an issue, it's good. As a culmination of 11 issues, it's somewhat lackluster. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 2, 2019

    Amazing Spider-Man #22 was a frustrating end to what should have been a storyline with as much potential "Hunted" had to be memorable. This issue, like the majority of "Hunted," shined when the focus was on Spider-Man and Kraven. Unfortunately every other character involved from Black Cat to Kraven's Son suffered from poor development and roles in the story. All those problems dragged down what should've been an emotional ending to Nick Spencer's biggest Amazing Spider-Man story to date. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon May 30, 2019

    Love him or hate him, you can't deny that Humberto Ramos' linework is some of the most energetic in comics, but it feels like he's really laboring here. He doesn't get as much consistency from his renderings of Spider-Man as we're used to. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer May 31, 2019

    In the end, what did "Hunted" accomplish? It spun its wheels for three months and then rushed to a conclusion that ultimately sputtered out and died. The highlights were the .HU issues, which highlighted what Spencer does best: small-focus character-based stories. Ultimately, though, those one-offs weren't enough to save "Hunted" from being a completely forgettable missed opportunity of a story. Read Full Review
