• With Silk's life turned upside-down by the events of SPIDER-WOMEN, she's not sure what to do.
•  I'm pretty sure running more robberies with Black Cat is the wrong choice.

    Last week, when I saw my subscription notice for this issue, I wondered if we'd get any movement on the search for Cindy's family, or more scenes with her therapist (I enjoy those), or if we'd get an answer to Cindy's apparent move to the dark side. We got a bit of everything in this issue, and it was all great. Read Full Review

    Cindy feels torn amidst her relationships. She has a strong bond with Black Cat, but has to answer to Mockingbird, and meanwhile Lola and Rafferty are worried about her. Thompson, Lee, and Herring create a story you can't put down. Few comics achieve the perfect combo of emotional gut punches and nonstop fun like Silk. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 4, 2016

    Everything seems to be back on track with Silk as we get amazing art and incredibly smart dialogue from this creative team. It's very clear that this team knows exactly what they want to do with this character and her story and is very passionate about it. There's very little to be disappointed about with this issue.

    The writing keeps you on your toes and the art keeps you sympathizing with every character. If you're feeling some Marvel fatigue, look no further than Silk to reinvigorate you. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Tony Goodwyn Jul 2, 2016

    Robbie Thompson plots a good story that allows for strong characterization for Cindy, as well as setting up a compelling conflict with Black Cat. Stacey Lee's lines are a welcome return, and help propel this installment as a worthy read. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chase Magnett Jul 7, 2016

    Silk #9 does not open well, but it finds a way to make the reading experience worthwhile to readers who take the time to read it all. The series continuing examination of trauma and recovery is dealt with very well in both its visuals and dialogue, and it does not miss a chance for an excellent cliffhanger. It's not hard to see how the modern exploits of Silk could surpass those of her predecessor Spider-Man. If only the editorial team could be bothered to design a decent recap page. Read Full Review
