Kate Beaton and Kraven…

…are just two great things that go wonderfully together.

These panels and more from your favorite indie comic/webcomic creators can be found in Marvel’s Strange Tales II, available at your nearest fine comic book retailer or where comic books are sold.


About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.

  1. These books are the best things Marvel has put out in years.

  2. I was going to trade wait this second volume but now I am not. All because of Kate Beaton. So Marvel should send her a thank you card for my four bucks. Or five. Or whatever it is this issue will cost…

  3. I Agree. Miss Beaton is worth the whole enchilada!

  4. Not a bad spiderman spoof I dear say. When was this sold? I had lost my whole collection last year and feel hard pressed to even try to rebuild. I had over 700 comics, man!

  5. Wow, this is a really trippy experience for me. I’ve been doing a webcomic called THAT’S SO KRAVEN! for a few months now, and between this and SHATTERED DIMENSIONS I’m feeling a little, well, scooped.

    • There’s an article over at Comics Alliance that Kate Beaton didn’t even know anything about Kraven. The character was actually suggested by fellow Canadian webcomic creator Ryan North (of Dinosaur Comics).

      CA: Kraven is not an inherently ridiculous character, but I find his costume to be totally hilarious.

      KB: I drew him, and then I forgot to draw the spots on his pants [laughs] I think I was delirious by the time I was done, and I handed it in, and then he said ‘”You can draw the spots on his pants if you want to.” But I was out of town, so he’s going to show up and there’s no spots on his pants. But the rest of it is great, big lion’s head. I didn’t know anything about him, but I was asking some friends who grew up reading comics, and Ryan North [of Dinosaur Comics] suggested Kraven the Hunter.

      So, if you really want to feel bad, not only did she scoop Kraven out from under your nose, she did it cuz a friend told her to.

  6. Wait, this is actually Marvel? (I was admiring the authentic printed-comic look of the colors, lawl…)
