One of the quintessential stories in Spider-Man's history is getting the Premiere HC treatment as Spider-Man: Kraven's Last Hunt Premiere HC brings to readers the final grasp at revenge for Kraven the Hunter along with 20 extra pages of new material.
Kraven the Hunter has hunted and killed every dangerous game known to man. But the one quarry that has eluded him at every turn is Spider-Man. Now this time, Kraven is finally going to eliminate the wall-crawler ... or die trying.
With his sanity pushed to its breaking point, Kraven actually achieves victory over the wall-crawler by shooting him and burying him alive. But it is Kraven's next actions that will shock you in this definitive Kraven tale and arguably the most popular Spider-Man story in his fan-favorite black costume by J.M. DeMatteis and Mike Zeck.
