    This issue proves that the whole idea behind Civil War IIhas some real potential to be amazing (pun intended). The writing andstorytelling of this issue are incredible and the art really fits in the bookvery well. I cannot stress this enough. This is the BEST part of Civil War IIand if you are at all invested in this crossover, this is the book you must bereading. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 13, 2016

    So often comic books have good guys turn back with the flip of a switch and barely any explanation or build up. This is turning out to be a great delight for those of you frustrated with that experience. Gage and Foreman are delivering an effective and believable take on the good guy going bad story. There's a lot of value here too as the issue takes a while to read and is fascinating to read as we dig deep inside Clayton Cole's head. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio Jul 14, 2016

    Civil War II: The Amazing Spider-Man #2 improves upon the opening issue with a dynamic look at a number of characters both in and out of costume. Christos Gage and Travel Foreman are establishing themselves as a creative pairing that needs an extended opportunity to tell Spider-Man stories. Read Full Review

    We've had the slow-paced, tension-building issue… it's time for an all-out brawl between Spider-Man and a worthy foe, Clash. Read Full Review

    The amount of attention that has been placed on Clash is very strange for a new supporting character, he's gotten 2 books dedicated to him with really good creators on them. Perez and Herring's work for Learning to Crawl was probably the best art that we've seen in a Spidey book and while Civil War II: Amazing Spider-Man doesn't quite reach those heights but this made for a solid mini-series.

    Black Nerd Problems - Keith Reid-Cleveland Jul 15, 2016

    The ending, and next issue's cover, leave Cole's true motivation's a bit up in the air. Which is good. While he would be far from the first reformed villain to relapse, this is one of those occasions where it doesn't necessarily have to happen. Like Harold Lyman, f.k.a. Harry Osborn? Yeah, that's inevitable. But it would be nice to see a character like Clayton, who doesn't need to go bad for any real reasons, stay on the straight-and-narrow, even after this serious of a relapse.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 14, 2016

    At this point it's clear that this Civil War II tie-in is really the spiritual sequel to Amazing Spider-Man: Learning to Crawl. This is less a story about Peter Parker than it is Clayton Cole. Read Full Review
