    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Jan 16, 2015

    In addition to the three aforementioned stories there's two mini-stories from Dan Slott, Ty Templeton, and Kris Anka. They're adorable, especially Anka's about a video game Spidey facing off against a digital Morlun. What's even more interesting, however, is the story about two similar Spider-Men trying to determine what sets them apart. It's clever, and a nice way to acknowledge that the “infinite universes” idea means that not every Spider-Man is going to be a Captain Britain or Spider-Ham. It's a really witty side-story that would just feel distracting in the main series, but seems perfectly in place here. Read Full Review

    An enjoyable issue with its weakest story still serving up some incredible art. A really great read for anyone even if you aren't reading the Spider-Verse event. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jan 14, 2015

    A novelty it may be, but its a great one that manages to evoke a ton of emotion for some of these characters. Whether its righteous fury with punk-rock Spidey, a knowing chuckle at any of the more referential stories or the satisfaction of a trick well executed, the stories accomplish what they set out to do. The fact that its more cotton candy than prime rib isnt a failing, its a deliberate choice of tone. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 15, 2015

    Overall, there's just enough content in this issue to justify the $4.99 cover price. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Tony Goodwyn Jan 18, 2015

    From the patent disconnect to the larger narrative (that clearly needs it right now) to the flawed storytelling, Spider-Verse #2 does little to advance the story, and flounders notably despite a few interesting moments. Readers will miss little if they skip this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Bill Zeiders Jan 20, 2015

    Once again, this book is easily skippable, especially for the price of admission. If I could get one book with Lady Spider, Spider-Punk, Fruit Pie Spidey, Newspaper Strip Spider-Man, and Video Game Spider-Man, I'd have one really good issue of Spider-Verse that I' gladly pay five bucks for. As it stands, we have two so-so books for twice the price. Read Full Review

    I hear people complaining about the lack of story progression in this issue, but I think you guys should consider the content more than your need for adventure. What you will read here is something definitely out of the ordinary (and this is definitely a good premise), not entirely written by Dan Slott (thank god!) and filled with spider-madness, something the main series have been missing for a while now. Each story is interesting in its own way, particularly the punk-rock one, with a very hardcore style and writing. I think this anthology could become a funny regular with the right creative teams. And don't forget the memorable tale in Spanish! :O

    Eh. Nothing really here to tie-in to the arc. I did like the last story though with the black suit Spidey
