The Scarlet Spider teams up with police officer Wally Layton to find a nuclear device that has been planted somewhere in the city of Hoston. A nice self contained story that shows how well Yost is building Kaine's world; thus far, his supporting characters have been fun, compelling, and most important, helpful in the Scarlet Spider's self-dicovery journey. Kaine, in the meantime, is proving to have the complex type of personality that makes him adorable -is it okay to use that word in this setting?

One thing that mortified me was the art. Don't get me wrong, Neil Edwards did an amazing job, and every one of his pages was vibrant and dynamic, so were Karl Kesel's inks, and Edgar Delgado's colors; but Ryan Stegman's absence is a slap in fans' faces and a disservice to the character. Why can't Marvel reward readers' loyalty to a title with a little consistency? Mr. Stegman's popularity rose to the sky with this series, and now he's been pulled just after a few issues to help with a struggling title? Not fair and very upsetting.
