    I'm really enjoying The Slingers Return and I hope a Prodigy appearance is coming soon. Read Full Review

    Dusk's reunion with Ricochet is one of the best parts of the issue, but the highlight may have been the subversion of the heroic beat-down. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Aaron Anderson Nov 20, 2017

    This is a fast moving issue. You get many Characters thrown at you from the nineties. I didn't know many of them but it did not inhibit my enjoyment of the book. Will Sliney is a very capable artist, but his art falls a little short when it comes to conveying movement. It is still gorgeous to look at work though.  Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 25, 2017

    As I already said, this book is alright. Even though its over, I definitely recommend the last Spider-Man 2099 run in terms of David and Sliney Spider-projects. I dont strongly recommend it, but its a bit of fun if you need some more Spider-Man periphery. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Nov 17, 2017

    In a world littered with too many Spider-People comics, this one stakes a claim on relevance. Peter David and company take advantage of the Legacy bump, even if it's not the easiest story to jump into. Read Full Review

    Ben scores a second-act win against the Hornet and his boss, Silas Thorne. The Slingers can't tell if Ben is good or evil. Peter David's script delivers satisfying developments on the main Ben storyline, but all the sub-plots are growing like unchecked weeds. Will Sliney's art remains great at impressive static shots and bad at conveying motion.

    This is the third issue that's featured his fancy SketchUp model of a big rooftop HVAC unit. Is this some kind of crazy subliminal ad telling me to buy a gigantic industrial air conditioner?

    On a corporate marketing level, it's hugely disingenuous to put this issue in a Legacy cover and pretend it's any sort of a jumping-on point.

    I really liked this issue, the highlight being Dusk. Not a ton happens in this issue, but what does happen looks to be important moving forward.

    As one of the few people following the Legacy initiative at Marvel I'm buying the first Legacy issue of all books. This might be good issue for regular readers but it did anything at all to catch a new reader up to date, I was lost in the deep end here confused about who anyone was, what was going on and why I should care.
