    ‘Miles Morales: Spider-Man' #5 brings the inaugural arc of this series to an emotional, powerful, action-packed, stunning conclusion that continues to catapult itself and its title character to the top. Such an energetic series with artwork that matches the tone and the character 100%. This is the type of series many Miles fans have been waiting for, a masterclass of understanding, loving, and presenting a character of this caliber. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis Apr 12, 2023

    This issue is the epitome of what Superhero comics should be at a base line. Exciting action. great character work, and bombastic art have all fused together to create a hard-hitting debut arc for Cody Ziglar's run on Miles Morales. Read Full Review

    While their confrontation was definitely filled with intense drama, some of the art was hard to follow at certain points. Read Full Review

    Miles Morales has been a beloved character in the Marvel universe since his debut in August 2011 (Miles Morales first appeared in Ultimate Fallout #4), and the latest series of Miles Morales… Absolutely! The 5th issue of Miles Morales by author Cody Ziglar, penciler Federico Vicentin and colorist Bryan Valenza is a true tour-de-force in the world of comics, with its engaging storyline, stunning visuals, and rich characters.

    In this issue, we see Miles continuing to navigate the dual worlds of heroism and everyday life, with the support of his family, who have always been there for him through thick and thin. Miles' family is a crucial part of his story, as they offer him the support and grounding he needs to balance his respon more

    It's not perfect but I wish Peter Parker had this level of quality on his books this days.

    I was hoping to like this series, but I am delighted to say I love it! Rabble could be an undermotivated villain, but Ziglar made her story affecting enough last issue and in this issue the tragedy of her & Miles fighting over the results of a broken system that neither of them has any control over hits hard enough that I can accept her as close enough for superhero comics. Vicentini's art is apparently not everyone's thing, but I think it's dynamic and exciting. I can't say as I'm excited for the Carnage crossover intruding, but the new setup with Misty Knight is great, taking the vague idea of the mercifully abandoned (rumored) Spy-D direction and making it something really workable. I'm super ready for Detective Miles Morales and excited more

    This was a strong way to end the first arc, and I'm glad things ended on a high note. Of course, Vicentini's art is, once again, great and it only added to the story. Speaking of which, the story here fired on all fronts. The battle between Miles and Raneem was pretty fun, and I really enjoyed Miles using a giant electric surge in the end. Plus, if you've read my reviews of the rest of the series thus far, you'll know I'm very glad to see that the mentor-mentee relationship between Miles and Misty Knight is continuing. I'm not sure how I feel about the next story being a crossover with Carnage, but I'm definitely interested, if nothing else.

    Dug this and dug the villain. Great artowork and visual style.

    Miles is still on his feet and is still getting good comics. How it should be.

    I'm really not liking this flat, heavily shadowed art style that's showing up in Marvel titles lately -- Marauders and Moon Knight being two others. The panels just look like a jumble of black shapes and action lines with no depth whatsoever, and I often find myself having to stare at them to figure out what's happening.

    decompression comes for all good comics and Miles Morales is another causality. No reason this story is five issues long. It didn't need to be five issues long. Misty Knight is reaching Glurp levels of insistence.

    Man, that was pretty bad.

    The art is beautiful but the action is so confusing. I can't understand half the stuff that happens. Geography is never estabilished and you don't even know what is hitting people. Starling uses something we don't even see to cut the drone. We don't even see the girl's body afterwards. Did she died, did she ran away? We don't know.

    Also the writing isn't very good. The motivation of the antagonist opens potencial to talk about something, but nothing is actually said. Also, she goes full evil by trying to kill Miles's family for no reason, and Miles STILL tries to say she's not a bad person?! What the hell.

    Some last things:

    -Miles's dad said because of him his neighbors more
