Unfortunately, despite appearing on the cover, Kaine does not appear in this issue.
Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider #16 storytime
Nice Mephisto, looking kinda Nick Cave there
Is this worth reading? I started for Kaine but gave up around issue 3 or 4 while Ben was still just starting to work for that Casino lady.
I came close to dropping it, but stuck with it after reading issue seven and have been enjoying it since. Unfortunately, The art got worse since Bagley was replaced by Sliney.
Story is great, art sadly isnt
Would you like to storytime the Ghost Rider one shot?
Sorry, but that's it for me tonight.
Is this the same house from a couple of issues ago? I was wondering if the girl was actually the Other looking for Kaine after this scene: and since Kaine was on the cover but i don't think that one is the house of the vet lady
What is with spiders and devils?
Really hoping Ben has a plan to turn the tables on Mephisto and isn’t really this gullible when dealing with a literal devil
It is a Damnation tie-in, nothing big is going to happen
I wonder if the girl isn't Mephista again
PAD did something similar back during his X-Factor, he introduced character named Jezebel who turned out to be Mephista under a different name
webshooters dissapear in third panel
This nigga doesn’t have an editor or what?
Sebela is shit at writing, Noto is great at drawing, Johnny Blaze is a king of Hell. Consider yourself brought up to speed.
While that might normally work for other books that are tie-ins, Damnation is both tying in thematically with what goes on innBen’s plot and is giving a connection to both the Slingers arc and the one that’s coming after
what's up with PAD and creepy little girls?
what the fuck is up with her legs in the second panel?
I've been assuming the girl is Death.
After all that's going on I think what's on his mind is literally using Mephisto to save Cassandra's daughter and then dealing with whatever happens to his soul however he can, but definitely knowing he's gonna be screwed over and trying to get something out of the deal.
Peter was and ben is basically a shittiet dumber peter
Ben-27, you mean. Original Ben was a better Peter in every way.
PAD, YOU HACK! Venom sets off Ben's alarms just fine, he never bonded with him! It's Carnage who can give Ben this kind of trouble, because Ben was a host to it once!
Except this is Mephisto. Knowing him, he'd save her daughter only for her to die of something else because that's how he rolls. Just ask Johnny Blaze
