    it was good at first, but this current arc with carnage and the microverse and whatever has been kind of weird and I don't really like it.

    I'd say it's pretty solid. It had a crossover with Venom recently which was really boring (Venom being written by Cullen Bunn now is a part of it) just know that Kaine fought Carnage in it and you should be ready to read the next issue. The first year has been mostly set-ups so hopefully this year of Scarlet will be better worth the money.

    I dropped Venom after the whole hell plotline. It got a bit crazy after a while. That has made it difficult to follow the current Scarlet Spider storyline.

    The book hasn't been as strong the last two arcs I'd say. The story arc right before Minimum Carnage was forgettable at best. I'm really hoping it picks back up after Minimum Carnage.

    You should bring this back up in a few months and we can let you know if it regained its momentum.

    Yes it is worth reading. Still the best comic currently being published as far as I'm concerned.

    Minimum Carnage seems, to me, like it was an idea that Bunn and Yost had to do and they did okay with it, but I couldn't be happier that it's over and am looking forward to the next 'season' of SS. I think the set-up was masterful and that soon we shall be seeing some pay off.

    Everything Peter is, Kaine is not. Except now he has a conscience but he still struggles with it. For instance he uses his pincers to do something Peter would never do.
    Cyclops was right.

    It's currently my favorite Marvel book so I would definitely have to recommend it.

    It could always use more readers.
    I'm beginning to think that Hell is a comic book forum.

    Best Spider book on the shelves as far as I'm concerned As others have said the Minnimum Carnage stuff kind of dragged the book down but with stuff like, mutant werewolves, Kraven & probably a Jackal appearance coming at some point I'd reccomend coming back onboard.
