Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #9

Following the events of last month's issue, the Scarlet Spider makes a pair of new friends (well... if you are grading on a curve) and works with Ricochet to track down the other hero's former (and now resurrected) partner Hornet. Knowing there's far more to the story that Ricochet is willing to divulge, and the fact that it's been some time since he's played well with others, Scarlet Spider's team-up doesn't last that long (although the consequences do involve our hero getting in over his head and Richochet racing through a casino without any pants).

There's plenty of action in Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #9 featuring Reilly take on Hornet. As to just what the former hero's story is, or what that mystical totem is, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Subplots in this issue lay the groundwork for future trouble for our hero involving Cassandra making some deductions about Reilly and the arrival of a new player in town capable of creeping the fuck out of cab drivers (and possibly others). Worth a look.
