• With enemies bearing down on him from every side, Ben Reilly's running out of options and running out of time!

    There's plenty of questions left up for grabs. Also, Ben likely has to deal with the retaliation of his client whose child doesn't survive his experimental procedure. And as for Kaine, based on Marlo's effect on him, what's next for this Scarlet Spider? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Issue six takes some time to introduce some new story elements while recapping what's gone on in the series so far for newer readers.  While David does a nice job of weaving an effective narrative this month Sliney taking over art duties is a bummer especially transitioning from Bagley to kick this series off.

    This issue plays addition and subtraction with the supporting cast, hopefully changing it for the better. While Sliney is a competent replacement for Bagley, it isn't enough to elevate the issue. Read Full Review

    Kaine instantly regrets showing mercy to Ben, but Ben's been distracted by new business with the mysterious Marlo Chandler-Jones. Except if that's really Marlo, I'll eat a hoodie. Didn't Peter David recently repurpose Atropos as a reality-warper villain in Spider-Man 2099?

    (Pre-Hindsight: My guess is mistaken, but I like it so much I'm preserving it anyway. Turns out, we're *supposed* to pull out our Peter David Character Concordance and look at Marlo's shenanigans in Captain Marvel and Chaos War to figure out what this "Marlo's" arrival might portend.)

    Will Sliney's art is … man, I hated his art on 2099. Yet this issue's visuals work for me. Mr. Sliney is still Marvel's biggest SketchUp fan when it comes to backgrou more
