    In fairness, if you're looking for more Spider-Island, maybe this won't be your cup of tea. But at the same time, if you're enjoying "Amazing Spider-Man," you'll probably appreciate the kind of character-focused interplay that dominates this book. It's not much of a tie-in so far, but a great comic nonetheless. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Aug 13, 2011

    Spencer's sense of the characters seems to already be fully developed, and his use of parallelism throughout the comic works really well. Rios's art is simply mind blowing. The layouts she uses in the issue are innovative and equally true to who the characters are (I'm thinking particularly of the first three pages and the twopage spread towards the end). The way they work together makes it feel like they've been collaborating for years and not a single issue. This book should become an ongoing immediately and you owe it to yourself to get in on the ground floor. You won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    This mini doesn't look as though it'll accomplish much as a Spider-Island tie-in. But as a brief vehicle for the exploits of Cloak and Dagger, the book is already showing storytelling ambition and some very arresting imagery. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Aug 17, 2011

    If you're into Cloak & Dagger, this will be an enjoyable read that is pretty true to the characters and has wonderful art. Not too bogged down in Spider-Island, so you can enjoy this alone if you wish. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Matt Demers Aug 10, 2011

    At three issues, this mini-series seems to be a bit of a "standard" comic book story, if anything. If I had to guess, it might even fill the "Tie-In That Has Nothing To Do With The Main Story" space on my Crossover Bingo card. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Aug 12, 2011

    Editor Steve Wacker sums things up at the end of the book by making it clear that Marvel would love to see this miniseries as a launching point for a full-blown Cloak and Dagger ongoing. If they can keep this creative team together, I'd be completely onboard for that. Read Full Review
