    So far BenReilly: Scarlet Spider by Peter David has been a slow, intriguing burn, that I'llsee through to the end of the first arc to make my ultimate judgement to keepreading or let go.  The art by Bagley hasbeen awesome so far and is worth checking out. However if Ben/Kane arecharacters you're new to there might be some issues for you with this title. Read Full Review
