•  For years, MEPHISTO has had a fascination with the Parker clan...
•  In this issue, does the King of Hell claim the ultimate prize? The soul of a certain wall-crawling, web-slinging friendly neighborhood Spider-Clone?!

    This still isn't a very good superhero comic, but I enjoyed Will Sliney's artwork, especially in the first couple of pages as Reilly contemplates the consequences of his (many) poor decisions. Read Full Review

    Once again I will have to defend peter david. And he make things way easer with this very good issue.
    A issue about hero ... What is the good move for a hero ? Betray the Midnight son & save Abigail & is soul or Betray Mephisto and let a little girl really sick ? It's a fair question. And at one Point I wonder if Ben like Strange didn't have a false look of what happen he that was him & not Kaine who was Damned. I like the use of the Holy water use. And I find it nice how Peter david live Ben join once more the midnight son for the end of Damnation.

    Cover - 2/2 related to my reading & very nice.
    Writing - Peter david give another kind of doubt to ben. I regret he wasn't the hero I know (For that I would never forgive Sl more

    A tricky issue to asses. The back half features another excellent Ben-Kaine fight, but the first half is unbelievably indulgent. It's Ben belatedly doing the soul-searching he should have done BEFORE shaking Mephisto's hand. But then, that's Ben Reilly all over, isn't it? Making ridiculously wrong decisions and then second-guessing himself a little too late? The art sticks to its high standard of character rendering, but this issue's layouts look perfunctory. There's a memorable (bad memorable) splash page of the Midnight Sons fighting the Ghost Avengers that features a heap of great character drawings - a literal heap, without rhyme or reason.
