    This is my favorite issue of this series in a long time. The story is always most interesting when we see how Cindy's time in isolation affects the way she deals with situations now. Read Full Review

    It's still baffling that they would start this relaunch with Stacey Lee on art for Silk #1 and then immediately transition to a new artist, but Tana Ford is an able replacement, if not quite the same caliber of cartoonist as Lee. Overall, Silk seems to be heading in a good direction Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Tony Goodwyn Jan 16, 2016

    With a repetitious series of actions and little real plot development, Silk #3 has strayed from its initially promising premise. Hopefully it can recover quickly and get back to Cindy's undercover exploration. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Kelly Richards Jan 18, 2016

    Silk has been one of my favorite Marvel titles for a while there was something about issue #3 that failed to hit the mark. Neither the story nor the artwork succeeded in gripping me and getting through the issue felt like something of a slog. I truly hope that this is not indicative of what is still to come because up until this point, Silk really has been amongst the best. Read Full Review

    The story's good but it definitely needs Stacey Lee's art

    I had really liked the creation of Silk (aka Cindy Moon) in the Spider-Verse event, I like seeing Peter have a super-powered counterpart who isn’t always just time traveling Miguel O’Hara or dimensionally displaced Miles Morales (which I think it is official we are getting another Pete & Miles team-up book) plus seeing how a young woman who has been trapped in a bunker for a decade deals with life in New York relatively unsupervised is an interesting and (almost) unique premise- see Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. But beyond that, I think that this book is really a decent outing, and could be a solid vehicle for driving new, younger, and possibly even dare I say it… FEMALE readers into comic book shops to pick up Spider-Man family books! Because if books like Spider-Gwen and this can run for a long time (this book may need a bit of a boost for that to happen) it could mean big things for the future of comics, especially in the eyes of the younger readers who are probably already on the fence about comic book shops in general. I liked this issue, because I thought it had quite a few interesting and unique visuals for the story- the two page spread with the panoramic view of the sewers that Silk and Shrike are traveling in, where Shrike is just plodding through sewer water, but Silk is doing her spider-y duties and climbing on the walls and hanging off things, and sitting on top of the giant concrete slab that Shrike lifts up… it was just a really good, funny moment that I thoroughly enjoyed. Early on in the issue, seeing Silk and Spider-Man staging a fight to build up Silk’s “bad girl cred” was a fun moment, and the flash back/flash forward that illustrated Cindy’s lack of communication skills and her ability to frustrate two separate men in two different decades in EXACTLY the same way (i.e.- the panels were basically identical) was laid out on front street. I like that we see more of her inner monologue in this book, and that we are seeing that she o
