This event actually ended very well for me, yet I would find comic fans disagreeing with me. Kraven is one character that I fully understand and just about everything in this issue served its purpose and the characters were actually perfect, even Kraven. Yes I have read all Kraven books and history and analyzed the man with outside resources for the fun of it, so if something in the Grim Hunt issue has you confused, then by all means ask me and i'll give the best and most understandable answer that I can give.
This event was probably one of the most unique build up's that would challenge Spiderman in a whole new way and prepare him for his real challenge. With a returning cast of original villians and events that would change Spidermans life, the Gauntlet is probably one of my most unique collections that I currently own.
THE GRIM HUNT
The final challenge for Spiderman, has one thing that convinces me for a high rating. Knowing what that challenge is as an audience. Everything that has some people possible confused is in this event is explained but overlooked or possibly misunderstood. You seriously would have to literally read Kravens Last Hunt, alot of the original Spiderman titles, and do some research to understand why Kraven is one unique character within the Marvel Universe.
Im just praying that he doesn't fall into the hands of lazy or no-talent writers, that would really be shameful.
