After reading from the ancient Darkhold, Spider-Man was meant to gain the power to enter the dread Chthon's dimension and stop him from spreading his mythic darkness across the globe. Instead the book drove him insane - but what does that mean for the stalwart Peter Parker? Dive into a warped world of Spider-Man's broken mind!

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Dec 20, 2021

    Darkhold: Spider-Man #1 brings a story that doesn't succeed at what it's trying to accomplish. While the art delivers, the narrative fails to use its time properly to both establish the story's setting and produce a well-formed tale. Read Full Review
