Quick Reviews: Marvel's Scarlet Spider, Secret Avengers, Ultimates & Venom

I'm still trying to catch up on reading as you can tell I'm about 5 months behind, and it has become clear that writing full reviews while I do that is a little tough. I did the math and I would have to read and review 10 comics a day and that would allow me to catch up in about 3 months. So to speed things up I will be posting a few "Quick Reviews". What that means is instead of a my normal review where I rate each area and give my opinion, I will pretty much just be ranking the comic. If you have any questions about my rating or want to discuss anything just leave me a comment.
