    While I tend to be a fan of more vibrant art, Stacey Lee's and Ian Herring's work as totally won me over. The more subdued look really suits this story, because Cindy's tale is sad. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Aug 19, 2015

    Silkhas one of the strongest protagonists in comics today: relatable, vulnerable, yet resolute. Cindy Moon willfind her family, we can be sure of that. Robbie Thompson forces us to question just how much physical and emotional pain one can endure. Stacey Lee tells such an effective story through her art, the text almost takes a backseat to the energy and emotion that pops from every panel. Silk is a character-driven story that has us hooked.

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Aug 19, 2015

    It could be that the story telling which has revitalized and reshaped the presentation of female characters simply does not mesh with the kind of grand storytelling that is Secret Wars. As this new wave has helped reshape the medium of comics, especially at the Big Two publishers, it is maybe evident that the massive crossovers are not the way forward for the future but rather a focus on characters over concepts. Whatever the case, that approach has worked in this series and continues to work here, as one of the standout series from Marvel in the past year, and one which will hopefully be back at full strength following the end of Secret Wars.

    Superior Spider-Talk - Tony Goodwyn Aug 24, 2015

    Silk continues to be a strong title for readers of the Spider-family of books, and is making for a decent coming of age hero story so far. While some of the plot details are dragging unnecessarily, there are enough memorable character moments--helped along by Stacey Lee's wonderful artwork--to make the overall narrative work well.

    The Rainbow Hub - Adam Sorice Aug 23, 2015

    Where Silk goes next depends a great deal on the final issue of the current series and the first issue of the new series (out in October). While it's not yet clear whether the good or the bad sides of Cindy's characterisation will win out, it's very rewarding as a reader to see the dialogue at all and to root for the good " Cindy is one character that finally deserves to catch a break.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 22, 2015

    This was another fine issue of Silk, wrapping up her initial storyline in a solid, productive way. She has a few big moments, cements her rivalry with the Black Cat, and even gets a nice cameo from Spider-Man. We're no closer to finding her parents, but maybe the creative team is waiting for her relaunch to really delve into that stuff. Fine by me. Silk has been a fun little comic so far. It's nothing spectacular, but it's still fun, especially if you really like the character. Though I can't help but feel that this might be a stronger comic overall if Silk wasn't tied so closely to Spider-Man. Maybe if Cindy Moon and her circumstances were original, and they really delved into what it might be like to be a new superhero in the MU. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 30, 2015

    There's plenty of action here, including a short throwdown between Black Cat and Silk, along with a cameo from your friendly neighboorhood Spider-Man, but there's nothing in this issue that suggests I've been missing much by mostly ignoring Cindy Moon's adventures so far. For fans. Read Full Review
