    Superior Spider-Talk - Brian Jacob Aug 9, 2014

    An issue that actually delivers on a very big promise. Exciting action sequences balanced with moments that make you gasp, smile, and possibly even cheer. Leaving you satisfied yet starving for more, this is about as near-perfect a Spidey reading experience as you could hope to find in a single issue. Read Full Review

    Although Bendis and Marquez open this issue in melodramatic fashion following Miles' revelation to his girlfriend about his superhero identity, the comic really explodes into action as we see Miles in the same location facing the same monster who was thought to have slain his predecessor.

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Aug 7, 2014

    Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man #4 is a really solid and action-packed issue for the series. While story progression was slow, the issue still offers so much and so much potential going forward. The writing is the strongest and the artwork is easily the best the Ultimate Universe has to offer (that's not saying much though in hindsight). It was a great issue and I really look forward to the next one. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 7, 2014

    The emphasis is more on action than story here, which is understandable when you have an artist of David Marquez's caliber. Marquez's newfound focus on detail and finer line-work really shines. Rarely has Ultimate Green Goblin looked so massive or imposing. The action is kinetic, and the emotions of various characters as they react to the carnage are raw and powerful. Marquez's art alone is enough to make this book worth reading. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Erik Radvon Aug 7, 2014

    If you haven't visited Ultimate Spider-Man since the Bendis/Bagely heyday, this issue is worth picking up to retest the waters. The firecracker dialogue, taut drama, extensive supporting cast, and perfectly paced Spider-Man action make this a new/old take on the web-slinging world that's bound to please even the most casual Spidey reader. If there's any book that feels like the Spider-Man of today, this is it. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 1, 2014

    Is there anything more exciting than Spider-Man fighting the Green Goblin? I suppose there are a few things out there, but Bendis really knows how to spin it. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Aug 6, 2014

    MILES MORALES #4 gives fans a fight, but puts a hold on a few of the sub-plots/mysteries that made the kick off to this series amazing. The issue is a ton of fun and has some gorgeous artwork, and it's still one of Marvel's top books, month after month. If you haven't been reading this series, what are you waiting for? Mile Morales is the greatest Spider-Man ever. I said it. Read Full Review

    Although I did say the kind of mystery Bendis and his team have going on in the series may be bad so far, I find it to be quite entertaining. The idea of the unknown intrigues me and only makes the answers"when they do come"more enjoyable. Despite the fact of an unclear story, this issue was a very good read on its own. The individual characters interactingas a whole in certain scenes really brought the entire issue home for me and I am eager to see what's in store next time around. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Aug 8, 2014

    Ironically, though Bendis is a writer known for his deconstructed stories, this one felt rushed and packed too full. If Bendis had given himself and Marquez more pages to deal with the emotional ramifications and spent less time on, let's face it, a mostly pointless Green Goblin fight, this book might have had some real gravitas, as it is it's nearly forgettable the moment you put it down.
