HUNTER/HUNTED Part 1 The reintroduction of a classic, brutal, and bloodthirsty Kraven the Hunter. A bank robbery goes violently wrong, leaving the Rhino on the lam, running from the long arm of the law and, of course, the Punisher. As Frank Castle looks to settle the score with an old foe, the Hunter stalks the same prey, building himself the ultimate menagerie- a living, breathing super-human zoo! Add Spider-Man into this mix as the lone voice of sanity and super-special guest artist Cory Walker, and you've got chocolate and peanut butter with bullets dipped in it. Delicious! Violent! Explodey!

    Overall, this issue yet another hit for Fraction. Everything comes together so well and he really sets up a great story dynamic for the coming issues. And I cant forget, Jigsaw will also be on the hunt for the Punisher. Now that I think about it, this series is insanely fantastic. Read Full Review

    Finally, this book is making a claim for its existence. If, like me, you weren't sure what the point of the entire exercise was, give this one a try. Read Full Review

    I guess having SpiderMan does increase sales for books. It made me stop and flip through this and I'm glad I did. Do yourself a favour and pick this gem up. One of the best books I've read in a long time. Read Full Review

    This was ok...it felt more like your average comic book. What a drastic change in art style and not including any of Frank's gang made it feel like a different writer too. Not the strongest issue.
