    If you're new to the Ultimate Universe and to Spider-Man then this is where you want to start. You may not necessarily need the previous issue, although I recommend it; it's equally on par with this one. Bendis is good at crafting a unique new character based on a timeless one; and I say I almost prefer Miles to Parker. At least so far. This issue is fun, and it might have to do with the fact that Morales is so young and fresh faced; everything is new for him. Pichelli's art is brilliant; each page will leave you in awe of her talent. The pacing is fantastic and the story is shaping up to be a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Kirby Sep 29, 2011

    With the artwork and story telling remaining extremely strong through both issues of the new Ultimate Spider-Man, I think it may just be safe to say that this series is a real winner. The lack of anything really happening is not a hindrance but a rather a blessing. Being able to spend so much time with a character, fully developing them and taking the journey with them, is invaluable. Read Full Review

    Morales appears to be younger than Peter Parker was when he became Spider-Man which makes his character arc very interesting. The art work in this issue is the same as the first issue and the best work is on the last page when Miles discovers a particular ability that gives him a very big clue as to whether or not he is a mutant.

    Once again, it's the art that truly steals the show in this series. Sara Pichelli seems to grow and improve with each new title she appears on. Her work combines many of the best element of past USM artists like Mark Bagley and Stuart Immonen. Her characters are incredibly expressive and unique in appearance. Her panels are highly detailed, but she doesn't simply throw out detail for detail's sake. There's a sense that life continues to unfold throughout New York as Miles goes about his business. More than it has been in the past, Manhattan is its own character in this book. Great pencils, great inking, and great colors all combine to form one of Marvel's prettiest books. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Paden Wyatt Oct 6, 2011

    Following the cliffhanger of the first issue, Miles begins to sprint home and begrudgingly, not to mention accidentally explores his new powers. In #2 of Ultimate Comics Spiderman, transparency doesn't only refer to the opacity of our newly found wall crawler. Read Full Review
