• They say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, and in BEN REILLY's case, that may be literal!
•  For months, Ben's attempts to cure a young girl's rare illness have proved fruitless - that is, until a mysterious benefactor from the DIOGENES INITIATIVE reaches out to him with the promise of salvation...for a price.
•  Ben's made his fair share of bad choices in the past, but will it matter if he makes this one for the right reasons? And more importantly, will that be enough to save his soul?

    A great examination of an age-old time travel dilemma, but light on the actual Spider-ness, this comic was ultimately setting up what could be the finale of Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider. It's worth reading, just to see where the future books are going. Read Full Review

Will he intervene to help Reilly survive? Or, now that the girl is dead, will he make good on his threat to kill the other Scarlet Spider? For fans. Read Full Review
