    Foche delivers some great art in the issue. The story is non-stop action and Foche manages to keep the intensity and energy of the plot in the visuals with great action scenes and menacing visuals with Selim. Read Full Review

    The "Empire of the Spider" storyline has been a good one, and the latest chapter is no exception; but the trouble with Miles Morales: Spider-Man #40 is that it seems to be the latest in a few issues that seem to keep the series spinning its wheels waiting for the conclusion. Read Full Review

    Around and around we go, as Miles Morales's latest issue continues to go nowhere fast despite the story arcs finale being only one issue away. Despite a decade of existence and massive levels of popularity, Marvel Comics continues to hold Miles Morales back from the heights he could and should be swinging through regularly.

    This issue was fine, but this storyline is maybe an issue longer than it needed to be, and at the same time feels like it's failing to find time to explain some stuff. I'm still enjoying Ahmed's run, but he's definitely lost the tightness and consistency this series had in the early issues, and this issue is among the weaker ones

    It's not bad, but it all feels so random. How did Selim build an empire in Brooklyn? Where did he get all his resources? How is Aaron a living battery?

    Ideas aren't bad, but not good either. And when they aren't explored enough, they just seem dull.

    But otherwise, everything else here works alright.

    A story that was bland. I feel like this arc could have either more thoroughly written or should have ended quicker. Just felt like a decent concept that fell short.
