Scarlet Spider #1

No, we are not back in the 90's, but admit it, you are glad it looks like it.  Spinning off from "Spider Island" comes the new Scarlet Spider series written by Christopher Yost.  I had very little knowledge of Kaine, having only read one of the old "Maximum Clonage" comics; but this is by no means an obstacle to enjoy the book, as it has a short and sweet explanation of who he is and how he ended up where he is now.  I was not familiar with Ryan Stegman either, but his pencils are fantastic; his style is so neat and refreshing that it fits perfectly with the story being told here.  Using as premise a man's new beginning and his search for atonement, "Life After Death" is an extremely fun read.  As long as the book keeps it simple and maintains a consistent creative team, it can easily become a hit.  For now, what a great start.
