    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Mar 24, 2017

    I enjoyed this series as it was a side mission to Spider-Man's major arc. My only complaint is I wish there was more time to flesh Hobie out but there's something romantic in not getting that definitive ending as well. Overall, Sean Ryan and Jamal Campbell made for a really stand out mini-series about a hero that wouldn't be on most folks' radar. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 27, 2017

    While I'd prefer more Prowler stories to come, I'm actually sort of fine with having his fate up in the air. After all, Hobie Brown's career has been one of the more tentative of Marvel's street-level heroes, starting and stopping and never quite hitting the big time, so having it end like this is thematically appropriate, even if I'd prefer something better. Prowler #6 wraps up Hobie's story for now, and does so with some interesting moments and even where the storytelling and art are inconsistent, it doesn't alienate me as a reader. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Russ McDonald Mar 29, 2017

    The Prowler #6 captures the uncertainty of the Prowler's future but ultimately feels as if nothing happened. If this series has had one saving grace, it is the introduction of Jamal Campbell to comic book interiors. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 25, 2017

    The Prowler comic comes to an end with a final issue that serves more to showcase the solid artwork than to really do anything worthwhile with the character. So the finale is pretty much like the series itself. Read Full Review

    great art as always... starts with Hobie talking to Peter about what to do next...

    Peter just wants to know what Hobie wants.. but Hobie doesn't know.. seems like he's having flashbacks to times he's been in danger...

    and... seemingly he quits.. or considers it.. and this series is over.

    I hate Marvel.

    Hobie imagines potential futures instead of going out and forging one. What a depressing way to finish. This title had stylish art, but it really needed more imaginative plotting. I know this title had a big handicap in its tight connection to Clone Conspiracy. Writer Sean Ryan could have exercised a *lot* more creativity and bravery in facing that handicap. This finale is an admission that Mr. Ryan is stumped with the idea of what else to do with Hobie. The potential futures illustrated here are dull; they feel like the first four ideas spun from a "where to next?" brainstorming session.
