(Apologies in advance, I'm a little too lazy to do it quite as fancy as 600 does)

Reading Club for September 9 - September 23

Story Arc: Kraven's Last Hunt
Creators: J.M. DeMatteis on story, Mike Zeck on pencils, Bob McLeod on inks
Published: October - November 1987

I decided to go a little more old school for our second week in the reading club. I am constantly surprised at how few people have read this story arc; I consider it one of the all time best Spider-Man stories, and indeed it's one of my favorite stories ever written. In my opinion, this is right up there with the all time greats.

If you haven't read this (and I hope most of you haven't, or this was a poor selection) I honestly can't think of any way to fairly summarize it that wouldn't give away the big twist, so I'm not even going to try.

As was the norm in the 80s/90s for a big character like this, Kraven's Last Hunt consists of six issues spread across the books that were running at the time:
* Web of Spider-Man #31
* The Amazing Spider-Man #293
* Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #131
* Web of Spider-Man #32
* The Amazing Spider-Man #294
* Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #132

I hope everybody enjoys this as much as I always have.

Regarding who's going to go next, I figure I'll open it to the group; anybody who thinks they have a good idea, PM me, and I'll choose a winner.

Good choice, I always enjoy a good ol' Spidey story arc.
I notice the shared library doesn't allow Exporting books any longer, is that on purpose?
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

Here you'll find the reading list for Kraven's Last Hunt.


Mos def an excellent choice! I have to say that I'm a major old school Mike Zeck fan, plus this was a big time classic storyline. I don't know about today, but even 5 to 10 years ago these books were kind of hard to find in excellent condition. I'm looking forward to this 2nd batch of books for the club.

Oops, not sure how I did that, I was half-asleep when I posted this though. You're right! (Actually, guess I typo'd 293 as 239 and then added one...)

The mods requested that I disable this functionality for liability concerns, I'm afraid. I know this is very inconvenient if you want to read in CRA. :(

I had a feeling it was just a matter of time before this got TKO'd. Oh well, it was awesome the short time that we had the function. Thanks a bunch Shinrai!

Man, I've been so busy with building a new PC, that I am not getting time for anything! :silly: Am really glad that we have a fortnightly club!

Now, great choice for this week. I've never had an opportunity to read Kraven's Last Hunt, though I had heard a lot of praise for it. This had a sort-of-a-sequel, if I am correct, titled 'Grim Hunt' in ASM #634-637. That was the best Spidey story arc I had read in years. But, now it is time to read the original.

Thanks Shinrai.:-)

p.s. I'm very miserly while giving ratings, so be afraid.....:evil:

/shakes fist at mods ;)

Yeah, that makes sense, come to think about it. Last thing we want is to get in any sort of trouble. Still, it's great to have access to your library. As far as reading on CRA goes, where there's a will, there's a way.
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

Doh! Think I'm going to have to pull out of the reading club for the time being then. I'll catch up somewhere down the track. Thanks for the library while it lasted Shinrai.
