    Anyhow, regardless of how you feel about the chunk of this issue, the cliffhanger is sure to leave you quite anxious to pick up the next chapter. If Kraven's going to die (again), hopefully he goes out in one helluva fight! Read Full Review

    Scarlet Spider doesn't get a lot of attention " the current massive Otto Octavius stunt draws the focus, and it's well-deserved " but it's a cool little book, separate from everything else and making a go of doing its own thing, much like Flash Thompson was doing as Venom in Philadelphia. Sadly, it's all coming to an end for Kaine with issue #25, canceled right alongside Venom. We'll miss both of these books. Read Full Review

    With the comic coming to an end with issue #25, and Marvel showing no real interest in using Kaine elsewhere, Yost is presented with a unique opportunity to end the comic on his terms. For at least a single issue Kaine is able to fight off what Kraven and his daughter demand of him, but given next issue's one-on-one battle with Kraven to the death we'll soon see whether the Scarlet Spider truly is a hero or a killer. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    This issue was a good, mostly on the strength of the story. The art was all over the place, though at least it remained somewhat coherent and together. I could follow the story easily enough. But it's a bad sign that the end is near when the art just falls apart. Nobody cares anymore. I hope Chris Yost has some good plans to say goodbye. Scarlet Spider deserves a strong ending. I'd even be willing to accept a dark ending. Read Full Review

    Yost proves to us that he really knows Kraven and Kaine's character, and this issue uses great looking flashbacks and perspective oriented re-caps to lay the ground for the story. Unfortunately, the plot at hand isn't exactly as juicy as what we've seen before. No real surprises are in this issue, but I'd definitely recommend it, if you're looking to follow Kaine, until the end, and definitely if you're a Sergei Kravinoff fan. Read Full Review
