    Edge of Spider-Verse #2 continues to slowly unveil the main threat, but if you have the patience, it's a rewarding read. Not only does it feature an electric new Spider superhero, but it gives readers something substantial to cling to in figuring out where this conflict goes from here. Read Full Review

    Building towards climax can be difficult especially if you have a lot of characters to introduce along the journey. Edge of Spider-Verse is full of characters that have to show who they are, some of their stories are a dud and others eclipse the rest. Edge of Spider-Verse #2 has several strong characters, each with a purpose. Although, with so little panel space two characters were buried beneath Spider-UK. Readers can only hope that any one Spider doesn't take the spotlight. Read Full Review

    As an anthologywhich is roughly what this is with different writers and artists on each storyit's enjoyable and oddly consistent in look and feel save for "Mini-Spider" which looks a little rough, but is still fun. Read Full Review

    This series doesn't have the excitement or magic I usually get from Spider-Verse titles, but it is getting there. With an assortment of talented writers and artists, I am excited to see where the plot line goes. Read Full Review

    Spider-Gwen felt right and comfortable, though her story was a little aimless.

    The new Spider-UK is… well, I ain't fallen in love yet. But it could still happen -- let me see her do some actual heroing (notice how her government pals saved the day here?) without constantly interrupting herself with powers-and-identity exposition.

    The 3rd strip was a very pleasant surprise, gorgeously-drawn and intriguing (to me, anyway). The sisterly wasp/spider conflict is a perfect starting place for a Big Dumb Event™ plot. But there's a hint of deeper philosophy hidden underneath, with the wasps proposing a deterministic shape for humanity while the spiders are standing up for free will.

    Edge of spider-verse #2 loses in presenting spiders that aren't that interesting, but wins in presenting the villain. However, the origin of the villain's story doesn't seem interesting/motivating enough for all the chaos that is happening. Captain Spider's story seemed like the main story of this edition, but it wasn't engaging enough, perhaps because the characters that participate aren't interesting enough to create a relationship. I hope that in the next editions they advance the spiders' arc to something beyond what is happening in each universe.

    Ranking of stories in this comic were: Sharthra > Mini Spider > Spider-Ghost and Captain Spider.
