3-Minute Expert: Kraven The Hunter
And again, let's all give JoeyF a round of applause for all his awesome editing.
There were some dramatic pauses to capture the mood. We take a little liberty with the time to ensure you get an awesome video.
The funny thing is, I gave Joey more time to edit since I wanted this to go up today instead of last week (for The Grim Hunt starting in Amazing Spider-Man #634). Instead of finishing early, he makes things more complicated by trying and adding new effects. I am curious what he's going to do with the next one.
Kraven's last hunt is my all time favorite storyline. I can read that over and over and never get bored with it. That's how good it was written and drawn. The video was awesome and you really captured the true essence of the his story especially when he met his final demise. Great Job, guys.
I am amongs those that actually wouldn`t like to see Kraven revived.
I did like the issues with her daughter, in my opinion, Spidey should be darker, specially when the Karvinoff family is involved.
The impact Kraven`s Last Hunt had makes, IMO, almost impossible to resurect him.
I absolutely love Kraven. I love everything about him. I thought he was such a cool character before the storyline Kraven's Last Hunt, but that just cemented his place in my top 5 Spidey villians. I hope they don't bring him back though, because his end was so powerful that it should mean something. But, I thought the same about Captain America.... Anywho, I hope the reboots allow Kraven to come to the big screen sometime soon. I think he could work very nicely.
That was fun. I knew Kravens history but I always hated him for some reason. Just didn't have much interest til now, and I knew everything about him already. Im glad he's still dead tho. I like when they keep characters dead, but it's obvious, if he took potions then he somewhere down the line it leaves a story open to bring back Kraven and he'll have some sort of healing factor. That sucks too, it'll just water down the Kravens last hunt storyline. They always come back.
I agree. I'm both excited and scared for The Grim Hunt.
I've always found Kraven to be the most diverse Spider-Man villain, as he's not a bad guy who impersonates animals e.g. Chameleon, Vulture, Scorpion or a mad super-genius who makes mechanical suits to kill Spidey e.g. Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Mysterio.
I wonder if he'll ppear in the Spider-Man reboot.
P.S G-Man, please please please...could you do a 3-Minute Expert on Bizarro, Loki or Scarecrow. Thanks.
The graphics on these things are getting awesome!! I loved how the Kraven storyline ended, so dramatic, so perfect! I really hope Marvel don't ruin his death by just bringing him back in an 'un-holy resurrection'
Hey G-Man....Psylocke would be awesome next.... XD
Great 3 minute expert. Because of the Grim Hunt storyline Marvel released this comic that ran down a history, and Kraven lost a lot. Going up against people like Kazar and others and always loosing. For a while they were sort of loosing the coolness of the character that Lee and Ditko created. So his finally beating Spider-Man fixed that.
Glad you covered that Final Hunt too, so now I don't have to read it. Or at least now I know the details so I don't have to read it so soon.
If you're really digging these videos, feel free to pass them along to your friends. Let's get the word out to inform the world how cool these characters are. Post the video on Twitter and Facebook. Get your grandma to watch and tell her friends.
Nice editing job on this one! All the previous ones were great, but I really dug this one a lot! Love all the panels and your floating head! Well, can't say I "love" your floating head--it was a bit scary.
'Kraven's Last Hunt" stands out as one of my all time favorite storylines, by showing how much of a nutjob Kraven was, amping him up from being a bit of a lame villain. Also the artwork by Mike Zeck STILL stands out to me all these many years later. *sigh*
Keep these going, please!
Great edit work in this as always.
I never realized Kraven offed himself. That is MESSED UP.
You know what I want to see? I want to see someone from PETA to run up and throw paint on his jacket screaming "Fur is Murder". Only because of the hilarity that would follow. When Kraven ran after the little jerk. Don't ask when he got the new coat from a day later. I'll give you one hint. Soylent Green is also made from it.
It is Canon I think. the Marvel free issue that recapped all of Kraven's exploits (advertising the Grim Hunt story) mentioned that comic. So I think Marvel sees it as Canon.
" @mighty dude: From the first issue of the X-Men/Spider-Man mini-series. Is it canon? I say it is now. It was surprisingly a fun mini. "
