Ein Gelegenheitskauf, den ich nach den ersten 20 Seiten beiseite gelegt habe. Was ist in den letzten 40 Jahren nur aus Spider-Man geworden?
Die Dialoge geschwätzig-dumm, die Artwork auch nicht mein Ding.
In diesem Peter Parker kann ich nicht den jungen Mann wieder erkennen, der für Jahre mein Lieblingsheld war.
Ob ich das Buch für das eigentliche Kraven-Abenteuer noch einmal in die Hand nehme, ich weiß es nicht. Wenn ich auf etlichen Panels Daredevil mit weit aufgerissenen Augen sehe...

With a title like Kraven's First Hunt - hearkening back to the very memorable Kraven's First Hunt - you'd expect a great story. Unfortunately, what you get is a pretty simple main plot with a villain kidnapping the wrong guy thinking that he's Spider-man. The side plots are very slightly more interesting, though, detailing Peter Parker's relationship with his new room mate. It is unfortunate that this relationship treads the familiar ground of the room mate hating Spider-Man. We've seen that one...more
This trade collects Amazing Spider-Man issues # 564-567 and material from Spider-Man: Brand New Day - Extra!!!.

The first issue is a quick stand alone story told three times - by Spider-Man, Peter Parker's cop roommate Vin, and the villain Overdrive. Each has his own take on the day's events. Decent enough.

The next three form the titular "Kraven's First Hunt." A young woman has taken the name of one of Spider-Man's most deadly foes, and is as determined to make the wall crawler a personal trophy...more
There's a new Kraven related to the old (dead) Kraven, but you barely learn anything about her. This story's more about Peter Parker (and Spider-Man)'s strained relationship with his roommate Vic. Kraven captures Vic, which only makes matters worse. Except for a few missteps (like bringing in Vermin to add onto the Kraven's Last Hunt homage), this is a good continuation of the Brand New Day saga. There are nice variation on the old tropes of a mistaken secret identity, Peter losing his costume,...more

This was a good salvo from the Spider-team and Spider-office at Marvel, circa 2009. I really like Phil Jimenez' art, and the scripting is above-average here, too. Like a lot of stories, this vamps on a new generation of an old villain, in this case a daughter of the late Kraven the Hunter.
Ok. Recommended.

I was very disappointed in this one. Having been a fan of Kraven the Hunter I figured they would have done a better story for the introduction of his daughter. Instead I get a case of mistaken identity and Vermin...
Maybe the villain introduced in this story will be better in later volumes. She didn't really hold up to her promise here.
I'm a bit lukewarm on this one. It was a good but not great Spiderman story, I'm just not sure that it was a good successor to Kraven's Last Hunt. There were a lot of unanswered questions in the end and while having the plot with Officer Gonzales being mistaken for Spiderman and their subsequent confrontation in the hospital were great, that all could have been done just as well without the Kraven connection. The parts with Vermin felt tacked on and while I'm left wanting to know more about what...more
The super hero with human problems. Some beautiful images in the art work.
Trademark Spidey wit? Check. Getting his life stuffed up something fierce - and that of those around him too? Check. Crossover with another superhero? Check. Weird, strong, fast-fighting villain? Double check.

Yes, this was a fun ride, and perhaps will build to something more in the future. For now it was a popcorn session, not entirely forgettable - it's a well-written and well-drawn tale - but it's just another good Spidey tale in a long history of them.
Not that great. I was excited to read this since it was the first Spider-Man volume after Brand New Day, but it doesn't really do it. I know they're trying to make new villains, but Kraven wasn't cool because of his concept, but because he was a fun and crazy character. A hunter chasing Spider-Man isn't fun unless the hunter has some semblance of a personality, which the one does not. It was interesting, but a miss fire.
Sorry but if you're going to title a trade "Kraven's First Hunt" it better be as damn near spectacular as its predecessor, "Kraven's Last Hunt". This fell far short but does tease for future stories. One issue is that the main story is only three chapters and seems like more would have suited it better. Also, the cover isn't based on the main sequence but a somewhat throw away issue. Somewhat disappointing.
This was actually a very enjoyable read. This was no so much a story about (the new) Kraven but a story featuring the issue of identity and how this plays out in Spider-Man’s life. Unexpectedly, this leads to fight scenes but here I got a sense of regret amongst it. With good art and a solid story, this volume was a surprisingly enjoyable read from an increasingly jaded reader.
Great art, storyline lacking. The plot was dull and nothing much happened. There was a good twist at the end, but it was rather obvious from the beginning of the volume. Definitely not one of the best Spider-stories written, but it was okay. In the aftermath of the One More Day story, Spider-Man seems to be lacking something it needs to keep it's main audience hooked.

Picked this up used at my LCS. A pretty fun read setting up Spidey's new baddie. I'm still catching up but I get the feeling that this volume ties in with The Gauntlet/Grim Hunt. I don't like the art style on Daredevil. No sir.

This storyline just couldn't balance being kind of dark itch how ridiculously lighthearted Brand New Day is. Seriously, the previous I involved a villain who uses nanites to trick out cars for goodness sake.
Matt Chic
Story's ok guess, but I really don't like any of the art in this one. Even Bachalo's cover art is only ok. Could skip this one, and not really be missing out. Kraven's daughter and wife are alive. There you go.
Cristian Marrero
I wish I could of like this more. The fact is that I don't like this spin on spider man being a comedian and a one-liner. Creative to involve different characters and the set the future stage for Kraven.

Poorish spider man

Tricksy and repetetive and stealing a page and it was just a page of Millers daredevil run where kingpin strips him of everything.

Art is fresh and well its average spiderman
Shannon Appelcline
Guggenheim's writing is top-rate in this volume, with great new characters, great characterization, and a good plot. The last issue punch 'em up weakens it slightly, but it's still a strong offering.
Jay Bullman
I liked this but didn't love it. The art was great but I wasn't digging the story as much as some of the others from this run that I have read. It is still well worth the time.
Pretty damn decent way to update an old (dead) enemy and not to bring the old one back. Nice one.
Also, a very nice twist in the story, Spider going strong.
A nice story, interesting villain and set up and nice to see Vermin used well. Still liking where they're going with this.
Excellent art and some nice tiwsts in the plot keep this from slipping into a mediocre comic.
Dwayne Keller
A fun read, especially with Peter borrowing Daredevil's outfit.
Story was pretty good, and I liked the return of Vermin.
I like Guggenheim's Spider-Man, it's pretty fun!
