This is the first appearance of Kraven the Hunter. While it’s not essential reading it’s worth reading as a curiosity.

Kraven’s Last Hunt

Kraven was a character that wasn’t taken all that seriously until this dark storyline from 1987. When Hunted was announced it was said that it would act as a bookend to this story.

This is the Kraven’s Last Hunt reading order for anyone reading it in single issues or on Marvel Unlimited.

While it’s not essential reading, there have been teases throughout this series leading up to Hunted.

What Are The .HU Issues?

While the main story for Hunted runs in Amazing Spider-Man, there are some additional issues that tie into the story. These are optional issues that expand if you wish to read more. You can tell these apart by the odd numbering, which has ‘.HU’ at the end of the number eg. #18.HU.

In terms of numbering, you can treat these a bit like 0.5 issues (eg. #18.5) which tell stories in between the main one.
