It’s time to get back into some Spider-Man and I bring back Paul Scavitto for the ride. This time we tackle something a little different with this prestige format graphic novel that serves as a follow up to the legendary Kraven’s Last Hunt. Does it live up to that legacy or sully it? Well, since neither of us have read Kraven’s Last Hunt we can’t really say, but we’re going to judge this thing anyways.
Listen to Episode 14: Spider-Man – Soul of the Hunter.
I can’t help but ask… was Spidey willingly laying down on this grave before Kraven decided to try and top the end of “Carrie?”

Has Peter Parker ever looked less like himself than he does in these panels?
I think many a young reader learned something about themselves when they saw this image.
Sure, lure me in with the glowing golden image that was clearly taken years ago and photoshopped only to let the reality disappoint in the EXTREME. This is why I hate on-line dating.
Please check out Paul’s work on Armadillo Justice.
