Customer Review

on 13 August 2013
The stories from issues #564-567 of Amazing Spider-Man are collected as Spider-Man: Kraven's First Hunt TPB (Graphic Novel Pb). They are a mixed bag of entertaining stories, with Officer Vin Gonzales being the focus of each story - and his dislike of Spider-Man just keeps growing as a result of each story. They are also a fairly self-contained story with no major dangly bits left hanging (apart from Kraven Jr knowing where Spider-man lives). The stories are well-scripted and the artwork is of the usual excellence, though there are no major plot-developments or unexpected revelations, so it is a four-star collection - good but not great (which for this series of Spider-Man means very good indeed).

Issue #564 is a `one-off' story, as we see the events of a run-in between Spidey and Overdrive from three differing viewpoints - Spidey, Vin Gonzales and Overdrive; though Dexter Bennett gets the last word.

Issues #565-567 is "Kraven's First Hunt", in which a young lady who has been tracking Spider-Man and his close associates for some time, zeroes-in on the Parker/Gonzales residence, finds a Spider-Man costume, and kidnaps the wrong person for a hunt through the sewers to prove something or other about her heritage - and the title of the collection has sort of given the spoiler away somewhat. Anyway, the hunt gets more interesting when Vermin objects to Ms Kraven trespassing, and Spider-Man, in a borrowed Daredevil costume (just read the story- it makes sense) gatecrashes the party to try to rescue Vin. Anyway, it all gets sorted out in the end, though not everyone gets what they want out of it - except the readers.

There is also a short story from Spider-Man: Brand New Day Extra #1 - as Pete is late (as usual) for Harry's birthday party, and then doesn't get on with Harry's unpleasant posh friends.
