  • Scarlet Spider #19 review

    Today saw the release of the super-hyped Superior Spider-Man #14, the super-hyped Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #1, and the not-at-all hyped Scarlet Spider #19. I’m happy to say I actually enjoyed both of the hyped issues, which is not always the case with those series. In fact, I think this…

  • Scarlet Spider #13 review

    Welcome back to the book that was doing a darker, edgier, more vicious Spider-Man when Doc Ock was still in diapers (adult diapers, but you see the point). Remember that time Kaine killed Otto? Yeah, good times. “In the Midst of Wolves Part 1” Writer: Chris Yost Pencils: Khoi…
