Kraven's Family Targets Spider-Man

Spider-Man is no stranger to having a bullseye firmly planted on his webbed head, and more than once, the name Kraven featured prominently. Now, it's a family affair.

Spider-Man’s been put through some of the worst moments of his life and it’s all been leading to this—The Grim Hunt! Beginning in Amazing Spider-Man #634, acclaimed creators Joe Kelly and Michael Lark present the final endgame of the Gauntlet as two women claiming to be the wife and daughter of Kraven target Spider-Man for extermination. Everyone close to the wall-crawler is in danger and by issue’s end one of his closest allies will be sacrificed to prepare to attempt an unholy resurrection. After facing the savagery of the Lizard, the heartbreak of the Rhino’s return to crime, and over a dozen of his rogues both old and new, Spider-Man is at the mercy of the Kravinoff family as their carefully plotted revenge is finally at hand.

Plus, Amazing Spider-Man #634 marks the beginning of two exciting new features! The legendary Stan Lee teams with Marcos Martin for a 2-page “Spidey Sunday Feature,” bringing the real world into Spider-Man’s world. And .M. DeMatteis, author of the classic “Kraven’s Last Hunt” returns to the Amazing Spider-Man with Max Fiumara to explore an unknown confrontation between Kraven and Spidey's violent doppelganger Kaine…a battle which promises ramifications on the Grim Hunt itself.

Written by JOE KELLY, STAN LEE & J.M. DEMATTEIS, Penciled by MICHAEL LARK, MARCOS MARTIN & MAX FIUMARA, 50/50 Covers by LEINIL FRANCIS YU & MIKE FYLES, Villain Variant by JOE QUINONES - Rated A …$3.99 On-Sale—6/16/10

So...how far through the entire Marvel Universe are we with creating female versions of everyone?? Hmmm? This could be a great series and I do love the art, but the female version gimmick is getting a little old.
