I have one last post to make before the new year and decided that it had to be this one. This was without a doubt the best single issue I have read this year. 5 stars doesn't even do it justice. If you can only buy one comic this year this is the one!
Everything. There is nothing in this issue I had a gripe with. Everything tied up and the execution was perfect. This is what a comic should be. It took away the general trend of a consequence being ignored 1 issue after it occured. This issue had the consequences, the ramifications and the ending this series deserved, even if Kaine himself didn't deserve it. There isn't really happy ending but nor is it sad one. It was emotional. That is the only way I can truly discribe it. Baldeon and Yost ended this series in an amazingly, spectacular (NOT SUPERIOR) faishon and i'm very sad to see this series gone but on the upside they pulled out all the stops for this issue and let Scarlet Spider go out with a bang.
The main bad thing is that I will not see this series again unless they decide to relaunch again in the furture and that is gonna put a sour taste on my christmas.....once all the food, presents and fun has worn off of course!
The only other thing I would have liked is a little explanation of Shathra's change of character in SS 24 and then her sudden shift back to character in this issue but that is my only complaint.
With that I bid a fond farewell to a series that has given me immense amounts of entertainment and pleasure to read over the past two years. Marvel if you're seeing this, This is the quality of series you should be trying to achieve. It was one hell of a run but all good things must come to an end. Good-Bye Scarlet Spider, on to New Warriors!
