    Comicsverse - Chris Galvin Apr 6, 2016

    This is my favorite Spider book at the moment and if Bendis and crew can create a stellar issue without one moment of Spidey action, their storytelling power guarantees I'll come back again and again. It's the most entertaining comic I've read this month. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans May 15, 2016

    The action is all but non-existent, but we got a great moment with Miles and Kamala, the introduction of our villain for this book and the a surprise new mutant joining Miles' class. All in all, pretty hard to go wrong in this one. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Apr 12, 2016

    It's a quiet issue, setting the foundation for future stories - but the focus on character and real-world problems makes it true to the original concept of the character. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 7, 2016

    This issue offers an entertaining glimpse at life in the Morales household as both Miles and his father struggle to adjust to this abuelita's tyrannical rule. The interaction between Miles and fellow Avenger Ms. marvel is also entertaining, if a bit more limited in scope than what the cover suggests. Read Full Review

    The development of Miles Morales as a relatable lead character continues with a fun story focused on his civilian life. A skillful balance of charm and tension, strengthened by a growing cast of interesting characters. Read Full Review

    CourtOfNerds - Benjamin Raven Apr 7, 2016

    This is a fun book that looks to be setting up into some interesting storylines with Black Cat on the prowl and a mutant signing up for classes at Miles' school! Read Full Review

    PopOptiq - Terrence Sage Apr 14, 2016

    Only three chapters in and Spider-Man is balancing the life of Miles and his Alter-Ego greatly. Bendis is breaking new ground with adding to his family and throws in a fan favorite from his Uncanny X-Men run to make things even more interesting than they already are! Spider-Man #3 lightens up on the action but keeps us reading for the interactions between the various characters and the new sandbox Miles is traversing. Read Full Review

    Wednesday Comics - Marvin Salguero Apr 12, 2016

    Bendis is having an issue finding something interesting for Miles Morales to do. The first three issues has proven him and Pichelli know this character well, but so far he hasn't done much. The Avengers showing up in issues one and two slow down this story's progress and we are finally getting to the story. The enemies coming for Miles will hopefully bring some much needed excitement to what has been, so far, just okay title. Read Full Review

    There is literally no action here. But the story is just superb. Miles finds himself in a jam with his family and it's pretty funny and serious at the same time. It's lighthearted and full of gusto. The art of Pichelli is on point and fits well with this story. Can't wait for the next issue.

    The Villain Oct 4, 2016

    There is no Spider-Man in costume at all but this issue just works. Throwing Ms Marvel in there is a reall treat because she and Miles are about the same age and Bendis writes her very well. The appearance of Miles' crazy grandmother really takes me back to my young days. It even shows some character from Miles' dad which doesn't always come from characters like him. It didn't need all the punching and kicking it was so well written.

    There is no action here and the promise of an interaction between Spider-man and Mrs. Marvel is not played out like you would think. I think this, like her inclusion in the Nova series, was to help build on their friendship. Even without what I was expecting this was a solid issue. If you have been reading Mrs. Marvel then you see that the two share a common bond with trying to shuffle their families, school, and life as an Avenger. This conflict is what sits at the center of this story. Pichelli's art is great, and Bendis has always been a writer that really draws you in. I think unlike some other titles the tone the two are going for are the same. This works as a great companion piece to the All New All Different Avengers. If you are having trouble getting into that series then reading this and Mrs. Marvel will help.

    This great issue is bogged down by my utter dislike for Miles' jerkass Grandma.
