    If you are looking for a Spider-Man story that doesn't take Peter back to the basics, but also doesn't make him a millionaire with tons of unnecessary gadgets, please pick up this comic. It pulls off the combo of funny and serious really well, and the art matches the story in a way you don't see often. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 22, 2017

    TL;DR: A second issue as good as the first, Zdarsky and his creative team are off and running with a really fun and enjoyable Spider-Man comic! Read Full Review

    Even though it enters into all out espionage plot mode, Peter Parker: Spectacular Spider-Man #2 doesn't forget the jokes and goofy sense of humor that made the first issue so great. Read Full Review

    This is a silly, silly comic, and yet it's just a lot of fun to read. Read Full Review

    This is an interesting start, don't let my references to the amount of dialogue put you off. There is an interesting plot brewing here and the light hearted tone of the comic is refreshing when read at the same time as something like Secret Empire. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Jul 25, 2017

    Spectacular Spider-man #2 might be even more enjoyable than the first issue. The characters are fully fleshed out and relatable, whether it's Peter, Johnny Storm, or Teresa. But most importantly, this book is FUN. A sharply written script and solid art team makes this the Spider-man book to read. Read Full Review

    Regardless of minor flaws, Zdarsky manages to write the series well and its future is bright. You really should be reading this. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Oscar Maltby Jul 24, 2017

    It's all secret sisters and coffee date chaos in Chip Zdarsky and Adam Kubert's light-hearted Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #2, a genuinely funny book that's a little too thick on exposition and a little too light on action to match up to the compelling first issue. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Cain Winstead Jul 23, 2017

    Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man (vol. 3) #2 takes a nosedive in quality thanks to an overstuffed recap as well as some questionable character choices. Adam Kubert's art is as stellar as ever, but writer Chip Zdarsky would be wise to rein in his meta-commentary and save that for the Deadpool book he's destined to write. Read Full Review

    Disappointing so far, not looking for a Deadpool book dressed up in webs. Read Full Review
