    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 10, 2019

    The art by Javier Garron is stunning. Both the characters and backgrounds look great and there are some beautiful action scenes in this issue, especially Rhino and Miles vs Tombstone. Even the final reveal on the last page looked great both in composition and execution. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Brian Arbizo Jan 10, 2019

    I am generally not a reviewer. I work mostly on the news side of Comic Watch. I only review books I am interested in. I generally don't review books that are ongoing I like minis, just because I focus on news and generally don't have time to review. We are not paid by Marvel,DC or any companies to give good reviews. I pick books I really want to review and have been lucky enough that they have been great books. The reason I say this, I am a fan of this book, It's an awesome book so far and I want everyone to go read it. Spider-Man fan or not I think everyone will enjoy this book. Although we are only on issue 2,Saladin seems to have a firm grasp on how to write Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Jan 10, 2019

    The Spider-Man/The Rhino team up continues and they may need to work on their chemistry if they are going to rescue the kidnapped children. Miles is also wearing down from a lack of rest and sooner or later it's going to come back to bite him. Maybe the help of Captain America will lead to better results for Miles. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Jan 11, 2019

    This new take on Miles is looking more and more positive with each issue. With another tag team on the horizon, the next issue is sure to be a fun one. After seeing what Ahmed has done with Miles and Rhino, I'm excited to see his upcoming take on a classic Avenger. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Jan 9, 2019

    Objectively, this may not be the best Spider-Man comic you'll ever read, but it was exactly the comic I needed to read today. It doesn't hurt that it's also very good, but the impact for me was immeasurable. Sometimes the right comic (or song or whatever) can lift you, and Miles Morales: Spider-Man #2 has done that for me. So thank you, Saladin Ahmed. Thank you Javier Garron. Thank you David Curiel. Thank you for being the bright spot in a day that was, up until the opening of this comic, pretty shitty.

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Jan 10, 2019

    I like the new direction they're taking for Miles Morales. He's starting to feel more distinct, even as he deals with characters from outside of his series. If anything, their appearances have done a solid job of showing us that fact. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jan 9, 2019

    The lack of history - and subsequent baggage - that Miles has actually works in his favor this time, allowing Ahmed to give Miles a partner that feels unexpected but organic. The resulting sparks are well worth your time. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 9, 2019

    A good second issue that hammers home a sometimes hilarious relationship between the older somewhat slow Rhino and the sharper but wet behind the ears Miles Morales. It's a fun book that defies your expectations. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Jan 17, 2019

    The whole issue is just flat-out entertaining from start to finish and has all the hallmarks of a classic Spider-Man story. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Charlie Ridgely Jan 9, 2019

    As promised, this book focuses on a much more "Brooklyn-level" villain and story, which is a perfect direction for Miles now that he's the focus of millions of fans around the globe. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Ben Wasserman Jan 9, 2019

    While less story progression is seen in this issue, MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN #2 succeeds at building its protagonist's emotional arc. It also gives some impressive depth to the Rhino beyond "Ivan Drago in an animal suit." Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jan 11, 2019

    I love Miles and want to love this book but after a recap heavy first issue, Saladin Ahmed hits readers with a setup heavy #2. This book looks really good thanks to Javier Garrons art but it just isnt funyet? I hope that changes real soon because if not, I will drop it and thats a shame. Read Full Review
