    What's remarkable is this duo tells a captivating story, which further fleshes out the cast of characters, without once bringing Spider-Man into the picture. Read Full Review

    One thing that set Miles Moralesapart from Peter Parker was the fact that his parents were stillaliveand continued to haveanactive influence on his life. This endedafter Miles told his dad his secret identity,and Jefferson blamed him for his wife's death. Initially, it might have seemed that Jefferson (although stricken with grief) was being mean to Miles or was possibly mutantphobic, but these past two issues ofMiles Morales Ultimate Spider-Manshow his complex relationship with the super peopleand organizations of the Ultimate Universe while showing some of the positive qualities he has passed onto Miles.Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man#9 isa turning point in their relationshipanda showcases Bendis' gift for delving into superheroesand their interpersonal relationships.

    I must also point out that the work David Marquez and Justin Ponsor have done with this whole series is fantastic. The layouts, the darker hue of the flashbacks, and the grittiness of the last two issues made me feel as if I was reading a completely different crime book. I have to congratulate the art team for having done every single issue of this volume so far, even if there have to be some delays between issues, although for the most part, it's been on time.

    A powerful interlude comes to a close. Astonishing imagery, satisfyingly grotesque takes on familiar faces, and a bold emotional risk pays off with fantastic character development. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Marcus Orchard Jan 15, 2015

    "Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man #9" wraps up this mini-arc very well. Having Jefferson develop so much in so little time should really help to improve future arcs. Anyone who enjoyed last month's issue should definitely give this issue a read. Bendis and Marquez have put together yet another solid issue that is sure to delight fans, and it seems that this series has a bright future. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jan 14, 2015

    Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man #9 helps flesh out a primary player in Miles' life, gives readers an emotional exchange they've been looking for and showcases the diverse talents of David Marquez and Justin Ponsor, but in the end I couldn't help but feel like I'd read this comic before…just last month, to be more precise. Issue #9 feels like it could have been compressed into a one-shot with issue #8 without much loss of impact, and for that reason this one fell somewhat flat for me. Is it a bad comic? No, it isn't, but compared to what we've seen in this series so far it pales in comparison. Read Full Review

    While these two issues didn't turn out to be the huge game-changers they were hyped to be, they've been instrumental in fleshing out Jefferson's past and his relationship to Miles. Read Full Review
