    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson Oct 21, 2012

    While maybe not setting the world on fire, this issue does an excellent job of depicting the world on fire. And on that front, about time too; four chapters into Divided We Fall/United We Stand and our hero is finally getting his licks in. It's another highly competent instalment in a series that can do no wrong and proves that Miles Morales still has plenty more to offer to both the Republic and his readership. Read Full Review

    ULTIMATE COMICS: SPIDER-MAN continues to impress! This was a super fun issue filled to the brim with top-notch action as Miles tries to prove himself to Captain America. It's a solid issue from start to finish as we get to see Spider-Man take on Hydra! The only downside to this issue I saw was the lack of David Marquez. Pepe Larraz does a decent job, except I really didn't like how he drew Captain America. Read Full Review

    Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man has been wonderful lately and issue 15 continues this trend. The art isnt as good as it usually is but the story and action is good enough to overcome this and Bendis continues to make the story of Miles a very memorable one. Heres hoping that this keeps going for a very long time. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak Oct 22, 2012

    After all the fighting and persistence, Spider-Man finally proves he is a great superhero, not only to Captain America, but to himself. The issue ends on a high note for Miles, who has gone through a heavy dose of conflict to get to his goal. It is a satisfying ending for the hero and readers. If you're not following Ultimate Spider-Man, I suggest you go out and pick it up. Read Full Review

    Far be it for me to wish harm on a little kid, but Miles Morales needs to be put through the ringer. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Oct 19, 2012

    When I first picked up this month's issue it was met with disappointment because Dave Marquez's name was missing. One of the strengths that this series has is the artists, they've stayed on the book long enough to leave an impression and that's through the high quality of their work. While at this point I'm not 100% sure to whether this is only a temporary change or a permanent one I'll just have to wait and see. However for the most part Larraz manages to make me look past that and enjoy his take on the characters. For the most part it does look a lot similar to Marquez's work without looking like a cheap imitation. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 17, 2012

    Issue #16 also suffers from the loss of David Marquez. Ultimate Spider-Man used to be a bastion of visual continuity thanks to artists like Mark Bagley and Stuart Immonen. Those days are clearly gone now. Pepe Larraz steps on board for this issue. While he handles the action scenes well enough, his facial work is too loose and inconsistent to match the detailed expressiveness of artists like Marquez and Sara Pichelli. This series really needs to find some visual stability. I'm sure the recent plotting hiccups will work themselves out, but finding a regular penciller to fill their shoes is a much more difficult proposition. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Oct 23, 2012

    Another big glory day problem is the art. I know where Sarah Pichelli went but I want her back. Or Stuart Immonen, or Mark Bagley, or any of the other myriad of artists who made this book look and feel as good as it is. Pepe Larraz can handle the action sequences well, they look like scenes Ive seen under artists who can construct an action sequence a little better, but his character work only highlights how the book isnt being what it has proven to be. Of course, there isnt a whole lot to work with, Miles spends a lot of time under a mask and the characters spend even more time fighting things, but the book just doesnt look very good. The cover kind of speaks to it all: kind of generic, attempting to reel you in, but mostly faded into the background like the Ultimates here. Read Full Review
