    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Mar 20, 2019

    Miles Morales: Spider-Man #4 might be the platonic ideal of the perfect Spider-Man comic. It features a charismatic villain who has set his sights on our hero, a crew of compelling supporting characters for Spidey to bounce off of in his secret identity, a love interest, New York City as a backdrop, comedy galore, and lots of web-slinging action.  Best of all, its a done in one story, rather than the continuation of an arc.

    Later, the gang heads to the movies where Ganke is the one that ruins the mood between Miles and Barbara when he shoots Miles a text giving him a heads up that Vice Principal Lyle is out looking for him. Which seems like a lot of time has passed since Vice Principal Lyle banging at the door to now. The gang quickly and successfully beats Vice Principal Lyle back to school. That night, we see Miles in bed writing to his journal about a wonderful day he had all right before realizing that now he may actually be sick. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Mar 21, 2019

    I'm already loving Ahmed'stake on the character. It feels more personal and like a character breakdown, defining who Miles as a person and Spider-man. One thing that I would love to see is more original villains for Miles, rather than the usual Spider-man rogue gallery and the cheap c-listers he encounters. However, it's still early in a run that is already doing such a great job with fun art and great characters. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Marcus Freeman Mar 21, 2019

    Miles Morales takes a break from superheroing to ditch class and hang out with his friends. While Miles tries to have a good time, Vice Principal Dutcher is determined to prove Miles is a slacker that has everyone at the school fooled. So far Miles has been able to balance his education, social life, and super hero exploits. The problem is that however, more and more people are onto the fact that Miles is hiding a spider-secret.

    This issue is more of a one-off story, but that's OK with a book like this. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Mar 20, 2019

    Miles Morales: Spider-Man #4 delivers the sort of quirky, "marches to a different drummer" one-off that's all too rare in modern Marvel comics. It's not a Very Special Issue, a chapter in an Epic Saga, or a tormented character study. It's a flavourful, scene-setting romp that breathes more life than ever before into Miles's school and its students. This is the sort of texture and charm that are vital to building a long-running series. Here's hoping that's exactly what this volume turns into! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Mar 22, 2019

    Miles Morales: Spider-Man #4 was a fun and casual read. It may have been setting up for something bigger, or it may simply have been showing us the improvement in Miles' balancing act. Regardless, it was funny and had dozens of interesting moments in it. Read Full Review
