    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 28, 2021

    The first two chapters are finished. Goo and Miyazawa make a great team as more is revealed about the life of a seriously charming web-slinger. Every generation, theres an attempt to update the wall-crawling crime fighter formula that was developed by Steve Ditko for Marvel back in the 1960s. The attempts have met with mixed success. Goo nails the update perfectly in the first two issues of the new series. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Apr 29, 2021

    If you are looking for a classic Marvel Comics/ Spider-Man story then look no further. This is just classic comic-book goodness. From Cindy Moon's alter ego, double life coming together in fun ways, to a wild story; everything about Silk #2 was a joy. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Apr 28, 2021

    Bold and brilliant colors compliment the drawings of Takeshi Miazawa. The expressive characters bring emotional intensity to the story. And the action oriented panels are interesting and fun to look at. Overall, I found this to be a visually pleasing issue. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond May 3, 2021

    Silk #2 is a perfect balance of superheroics and more human related elements that often are left behind with the more blockbuster-minded style of comics. Miyazawa, Herring, and Maher present this all with very fun and dynamically emotional stylistic art that flows easily through the various parts of Cindy Moon's life. The series truly offers a nice counter to some of the more nostalgic and past-facing stories that Peter Parker is currently part of. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 4, 2021

    We're given more information than Cindy, who is still searching to prove a connection between the company and the gang killings. It's also not yet clear just how the cat demon fits in or what its ultimate goal/price for helping Ishii's takeover may be. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte May 1, 2021

    Silk #2 doesn't do a good job making it clear what's happening in it's plot and not in a fun, mysterious way. On the other hand, the character of Silk gets some well deserved definition and starts to establish their unique voice. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Apr 28, 2021

    Despite a promising start in #1, Silk #2 falls down with lackluster art and nonsensical plot points. This is only a recommend for the hardest of hardcore Silk fans. Read Full Review
