Scarlet Spider #17 - Wrath Part 1

Chris Yost, Kaine and the Scarlet Spider family welcome superstar artist CARLO BARBERI to the book -- and it's just in time for SCARLET SPIDER vs. WOLVERINE!

Kaine owes a favor to the Assassins Guild... one murder. And guess who they want dead? Hint: SNIKT!

Guest starring the faculty and students of the Jean Grey School, aka the X-MEN.


Yost is the SUPERIOR Writer!

I've Been uninterested in anything relating to spider-man lately, I hate superior, but this is a must read, seriously, this was amazing. Yost yet again delivers and awesome plot that makes for another great action sequence, but some seriously awesome moments.

The change of art was a good idea, because it is damn gorgeous, I honestly love it. Kaine looks tough, beastly actually, and seeing him fighting is amazing. Also the changes are awesome too, Kaine looks buffer than the usual Peter Parker completion which is cool, and Wolverine looks like a slice-dice killing machine.

The Plot is very interesting, it's clear that there is more to is than just Kaine fighting wolverine, which yet again gives us hope for a team up too. But enough about that, lets talk about The Kaine VS Wolverine. The fight was awesome, Kaine is definitely stronger, but wolverine just won't give up, he keeps coming back, again and again and again, and it's an amazing sight.

Venom #35 - Night of the Symbiote Slayers!


It's Eddie Brock and Flash Thompson fighting side by side for the city of Philadelphia!

Lives are at stake, a conspiracy revealed - and two lunatics with Alien parasites to the rescue!


Venom Smash!

Cullen Buun has seriously been kicking arse on this series, we've come so far and Bunn managed to execute a Toxin Vs Venom and Toxin and Venom Team up...in ONE arc...and in case you didn't know that is frigging awesome.

The art is amazing, seriously, this is what an all out symbiote battle should be about. it's gory, brutal, and fast-paced. Flash taking charge as Venom while Brock is following in the background is also amazing. Though despite the fact that everything was cool, I was slightly disappointing on how toxin was taken down, he is clearly stronger than Venom, yet the slayers seriously cut him down. however, this was probably to give Flash an excuse to finely go full-out-Venom. and that happens, as the title of this review would imply. Also, Eddie seemed a bit out of character to me, considering what he has been through, I would doubt he'd risk the lives of children for his revenge, but then again, Eddie is smart, and there is a HUGE possibility that he was just urging Flash to come out and pick a fight.

One of the highlights of the comics is the simple fact that Flash and Eddie stand at different positions, and there is a distinct parallel Drawn between them. Eddie never had anything to fight for, while flash want to build a life, even with the symbiote. this was an interesting concept, one which i hope will get explored more.
