    MILES MORALES: THE ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN sets the bar high for super-hero books. It does an amazing job at balancing super-hero elements while keeping the series relatively grounded. We finally get the return of Norman Osborn who is destructive as ever and while the big pay off will be in the next issue, the build up here is near perfect. Everything about this series is top notch and it's a series that needs to be on readers' pull lists everywhere. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jul 2, 2014

    Three issues into Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man readers are being treated to a Spider-Man tale for the ages. Miles and his cast and crew are some of the most entertaining characters in comics to read and the events of this issue can simply be described as explosive. The final pages are setting one hell of a next issue, and if you haven't been reading this series, it's time to catch up. This comic is as must-read as it gets. Read Full Review

    While Bendis knows how to move the pieces in this story to tug at longtime readers' heartstrings, however, one cannot overstate Marquez and Ponsor's collective ability to translate Bendis's scripts into a beautifully rendered story that feel true " even we don't really live in a world of Spider-Men.

    We may have to wait another issue to get to the really good action, but at least Bendis makes the build up issues damn good too. Read Full Review

    David Marquez's altered style suits the tone of the story well as he opts for a less clean and more textured approach. Read Full Review

    Comics Refueled - jsarrow Jul 6, 2014

    In the end this was a great issue. The thing that truly sells the issue after everything is Miles' attitude towards the events happening around him. He is just as confused about the questions I stated above as we, the reader, are and that connection makes reading his inner monologue much more interesting. I'm sure Bendis has a plan for these unanswered questions but Miles and all of us will just have to wait patiently for them. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Brian Jacob Jul 24, 2014

    Far from showing signs of slowing down, this issue sets us up for an explosive payoff. Can our storytellers deliver? Meanwhile, the lines between comic-book reality and the reader's experience continue to be blurred, to a fantastic effect. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker Jul 4, 2014

    With characterization this great, Bendis could probably save the whole Ultimate universe. Thankfully, hes focusing on Miles and his cast, which at this point are the only Ultimate characters that truly matter. In a world of convoluted mistakes, Miles is the undisputed king. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Zack Myers Jul 10, 2014

    Besides this very anti-climactic issue, I really am a fan of the art style by Marquez. Even though the comic isn't exciting to read, at least it's nice to look at. The story line is interesting, with Peter Parker and Green Goblin back to life and all, but having three straight issues without ANY Spider-Man action really doesn't make this a Spider-Man comic, it's just getting boring. Maybe in the next issue the fight with Spider-Man and Green Goblin will save the series"if it even happens. Read Full Review
