    I know I've said it before, but I'm going to say it again: Saladin Ahmed is a perfect fit for Mile Morales. His take on the character has all of the charm and innocence that we've come to love with Miles, but with added layers of anxiety and responsibility that you'd expect with a high school kid.

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Apr 17, 2019

    Miles Morales: Spider-Man continues to be one of the most charming, most classically superhero books on the stands. This new Tombstone arc--complete with a final-page twist introducing a new character--looks to be the continuation of a winning streak for the title with no end in sight. Would that Miles himself could catch the same kind of break. Read Full Review

    Life comes crashing down on Miles in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #5. Its a poetic story at heart if you can see past all the (admittedly entertaining) webbing of henchmen and witty remarks. Fans wont want to miss this one, and not just because of the new first appearance! Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Apr 21, 2019

    Where this issue fails for me is the dialogue. Some of the characters, especially the villains and even Miles to an extent, have some cringe-worthy lines. Which is weird, considering how well Ahmed has written everything over the past four issues. It feels like some of the dialogue and interactions between the characters break the pacing when you read them, which can take you out of the book a bit. Other than that, Miles Morales: Spider-Man #5 is another solid entry in this new run. Read Full Review

    Miles Morales continues to balance his life as Spider-Man with his life as a high school student. Miles is trapped in the middle of an exploding gang war and is close to finding the source of the escalating aggression. There is also someone else tracking this gang war that may or may not make Miles' life easier. Read Full Review

    Saladin Ahmed continues to write a really good Miles I just wish there was more for him to do. These first bunch of issues seems to be setting up a much bigger story, but I just want to get to it quicker. That said, the cliffhanger has me so excited to see more! Read Full Review
