This has always been my favourite Spidey story of all time, so I figured what better time to post it than during this week.

Beneath the cut are 28 pages from the 146 page Marvel Premiere Classic hardcover or specifically, seven pages from Web of Spider-Man #31, four pages from Amazing Spider-Man #293, four and a third pages from Spectacular Spider-Man #131, six pages from Web of Spider-Man #32, and six pages from Amazing Spider-Man #294.

still a fucking classic
esp when spidey crawls out of his own grave with the power of only three words: "I love you."

Mary Jane and Peter loving each other and begin supportive, with Mary Jane's memory being what drives Peter to live. A villain with an arc, a plot and a memorable personality, and a powerful end that doesn't feature gratuitous violence and/or rape?

Oh bullshit, who'd want to read that.

(On a more serious note, I do love this story so much.)

Loved, loved this story.

They take Kraven from crazy-tits Tarzan wannabe to a character with real depths and goals.

True story-telling.

By a funny coincidence, just yesterday I was listening to a podcast that discussed this story. They said the only real flaw was Vermin, a character DeMatteis had created himself in either CAPTAIN AMERICA or MARVEL TEAM-UP, as the villain Spider-Man couldn't defeat on his own. They said using Vermin was a little self-serving.

After this story, DeMatteis seemed to run himself ragged with stories that said "Suicide is bad, Mkay?" KRAVEN'S LAST HUNT might be the comic book equivalent of "Seven Pounds" or "'Night, Mother." Don't read it if you're depressed.

I should hate this story out of principle, as Spider-Man is the last character who should be getting the grim 'n gritty treatment. Nope, still a masterpiece. Or at least, up there with the very best that DeMatteis has written.

Now, McFarlane's TORMENT, that's a shitty grim 'n gritty Spider-Man story...

I've always had fond memories of this story, because I read it during a near-month long series of snow days in middle school.
While it's a lot darker than I prefer my Spider-Man stories, I think it's good enough to justify its existence.

It's one of the most read of my completely uncoordinated and unorganized comic pile. Heck, I just read it about a week ago from this post! Bloody intense, from start to finish!
