    Even after reviewing Amazing Spider-Man this week, I can safely say this is the best Spidey book on the stands today. The art is top notch and the characters are all so good, gosh darnit, I want to be right there in the comic so I can hang with the bunch of them! Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Zack Myers Aug 14, 2014

    Miguel is a great Spider-Man in this series, his costume looks cool, he can fight, and he's hilarious just like the Spidey we know and love. The comic itself is also great to read " it had action, the plot is interesting, and it contains quite a bit of humor too. I am a fan of the art style by Sliney, he did a great job illustrating the comic which makes it more enjoyable to read. As of right now, this series is one of the few I am excited to keep up with and can't wait to read the next issue for. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Spencer Maxwell Aug 14, 2014

    Sliney does accomplish giving a strong sense of fluidity to Spider-Man's movements. Generally action scenes in comics feel stiff, but you get a real sense of motion to the fights. It's clear that Sliney was brought on because he was able to portray the protagonist's gymnastic nature. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 3, 2014

    Spider-Man 2099 hits a solid second issue where it serves up some good action that doesn't have anything to do with the full story of the series but provides a look at how Miguel is handling living in the present. Read Full Review

    SPIDER-MAN 2099 #2 is a solid read. I'm not incredibly sure where the story is going, but David is still setting things up for a character that really hasn't appeared in 20 years. It hasn't completely won me over, but there's a lot of potential for this series as a whole. The dialogue heavy issue was an easy read and flowed incredibly well. Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Aug 17, 2014

    Spider-Man 2099 is starting off strong and only two issues in, Peter David and Will Sliney are making this book an underrated gem. It's combining strong writing with exciting art on a character that hasn't been in the spotlight for over twenty years. It's exciting to see how the two timelines are intersecting with one another, and you get the sense that this will only get stronger with subsequent issues. Although it helps to have read the previous 2099 series, it's not necessary as David is filling the supporting cast with fresh characters that allow you to get to know Michael O'Mara along with them. If Spider-Man 2099 continues to be as strong as these first couple of issues, it has a chance to be the best Spider-Man book on the racks. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Matt Deery Aug 17, 2014

    Spider-Man 2099 is a great read, I have loved the character for a long time so I am a little biased but, this is a different kind of superhero book. It is heavily character driven and focus's less on fists flying and web-slinging and more on character interaction and a man out of time trying to find his way in a world he knows nothing about. A solid read that will generate a very loyal fanbase for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tres Dean Aug 14, 2014

    The second issue featuring everyone's favorite web-slinger of the future isn't quite a sophomore slump, but it's certainly a bit of a step down in quality. It's safe to say that Peter David is at a point where he could write a comic in his sleep and it'd probably be readable at the very least. And while reading this book certainly isn't a chore, it's not exactly a thrill ride. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Anthony Behan Aug 14, 2014

    Overall Spider-Man 2099 delivers everything you want in a Spider-Man comic. It's entertaining, funny and with likable characters while still presenting a very distinctive lead separate from The Amazing Spider-Man. The story still needs some stronger plot elements if the series is to continue in the long term but this creative team is off to a great start and I'll defiantly be picking up future issues to see where they take Spider-Man 2099.

    Superior Spider-Talk - Kyle Chrise Aug 19, 2014

    Spider-Man 2099 #2 sacrifices action to go deep on Miguel's personal relationships, and still maintains a fast pace that keeps the reader excited about the series' future. That said, the issue is mostly set-up for future payoffs. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 18, 2014

    "Spider-Man 2099" #2 is a decent book about the time-displaced Spider-Man, offering readers more than enough information to latch on to and build around. David and Sliney provide an exceptionally nice study of character that the relative lack of action is negligible. It's nice that there is a scene with Spider-Man spinning webs and taking out bad guys, but clearly this creative is looking to establish Miguel O'Hara prior to building up a rogues' gallery.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 16, 2014

    The new Spider-Man 2099 series is just Scarlet Spider redux. When Chris Yost's attempts to turn Scarlet Spider into a second ongoing Spider-Man comic failed, Marvel apparently just turned around and asked Peter David to do the exact same thing! Peter David is great, of course, but he's phoning it in with Spider-Man 2099. This is an unimaginative, boring comic. Read Full Review
