'Hunted' starts here. This will be a major Spidey story, with a few tie ins that are oddly numbered, written by Nick Spencer who writes the regular book and drawn by Chris Bachalo who draws the regular book occasionally. You'll want those issues, so make sure you let us know now that you want those issues.
Most of THIS issue is great. Most of THIS issue features the return of Ryan Ottley, drawing Kraven, and a host of other animal based villains in a story line that is already surprising in a few big ways.
Let's focus on that material first. This is a whole new take by Kraven (yes that's 'by', not 'on'), a new Kravinoff family because of Kraven, a surprising take on the super-rich and trophy hunting, and a bag of skulls. It's neat. It's different. You'll like it. If it ended right there, this issue would have gotten 9 NINE whole Grahams.
Then, there's a super ugly back up by Alberto Alburquerque that wouldn't have passed the initial submission requirements for the Marvel Try-Out book. That's the part with Spider-Man. You've been warned.
I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
