    The story seems to be getting better, even though the art appears to be getting worse. Regardless, Spider-Man 2099 is still one of Marvels more interesting comics. Its Peter David and Miguel OHara, so that shouldnt come as a surprise. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Lewis Reynolds Sep 4, 2014

    Sliney's slight visual reimagining of a classic Spider-Man villain in the closing pages is another enjoyable surprise, drawing upon a more atavistic, organic look for the villain in comparison to prior physical portrayals in order to create a genuinely frightening visage. With a good handle on pace, David closes out the issue on a cliffhanger, following up an intriguing opening sequence by delivering a level of action previously unseen whilst still maintaining his penchant for humour and strong dialogue.

    Superior Spider-Talk - Kyle Chrise Sep 7, 2014

    Spider-Man 2099 #3 uses action to define characters and relationships. It shows that having powers does not make a person powerful. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Anthony Behan Sep 8, 2014

    I feel the problem with this issue may stem from Peter David's obligation to tie Spider-Man 2099 into the upcoming Spider-Verse event, as such he isn't free to take the story in the direction he wants and instead is forced to provide this filler for the time being. That doesn't mean it can't be entertaining filler though. I'm hoping the next will provide some exciting action that will let the art team shine and hopefully add to this issue, which at the moment doesn't offer much in super heroics or plot development. Issue 1 and 2 offered some clever and intriguing elements to Spider-Man 2099′s modern day story, it's time to build on these before this series fades away after Spider-Verse gets wrapped up.

    Major Spoilers - Jason Inman Sep 6, 2014

    Spider-Man 2099 #3 is not quite as good as its previous issues and very strong debut. If you're a classic Spider-Man fan, you will still find enjoyment her, but for others, you might want to skip this one. Read Full Review

    A good solid issue, this title continues to have a strong and impressive start and with Peter David writing the signs are good that the story arcs will only get better and better the longer the title continues. However that being said in this climate a book lasting longer than a year or two is a bit of a lottery. but the foundation on which the re-vamped Spider-Man 2099 book has started gives cause to be optimistic for a sustained run. I would say the only slight downside would be the inconsistency of Will Sliney's artwork which vary's from page to page. however Sliney has shown potential enough within the first two issues of this title that once he gains the consistency then the book will have a very good artist to convey the story that the excellent David is trying to tell. Speaking of the story, it's a decent flowing continuation of the previous two issues that keeps the reader guessing as to where it is Peter David is taking Miguel O'Hara and by extension us the reader. As it transpires Miguel is relieved to find he still has a job at Alchemax despite the bombshell he laid on CEO Liz Allan in the previous issue. One of the interesting aspects is the lack of a Spider-Sense for Miguel which does help in placing him in precarious situations which happens quite effectively within this issue. and the use of a villain who we haven't seen since his encounter with an apparent "Superior" character was a welcome surprise, considering whom it would appear his new employers are. I can't help but continue to enjoy the direction that this book is taking and hope that sales ensure a prolonged run. Reading about the ways in how Miguel need's to keep Tiberius Stone safe in order to maintain his own existence is an interesting faucet given who it transpires that Stone is and his relationship to Miguel means for Spider-Man 2099 in the future.
