    Shoot The Breeze Comics - James Portis May 8, 2017

    Spider-man #16 is an essential read for any new reader to Miles Morales, especially if youre adding this to your pull list until its eventual cancellation due to the approaching Marvel Legacy. The story is well done, the one major action scene is something I haven't seen in a comic in awhile, and I'm very excited for the future of Spider-man. So much better than Amazing. Dont read Amazing. Peter Parker isnt cool anymore. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon May 4, 2017

    Oscar Bazaldua is very smooth with the character's framing, detail, and look throughout this issue. The intensity of Black Cat and devil may care attitude of Hammer Head juxtaposed with Ganke's obliviousness at reading the room and Miles' frustration told an incredible story visually for Bendis this issue.

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff May 8, 2017

    This book is far from bad. Hell, the art in this book is good enough to entertain any reader. However, this is a set up issue and those are rarely very exciting. However, this issue will hopefully pay off in the next few issues. However, I have begun to wonder whether the many crossovers that this book has been involved in have finally taken a huge toll on this book. This is the 16th issue of this series and only 8 of those issues haven't been involved in a crossover. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Dan Gvozden May 11, 2017

    Newcomer artist Oscar Bazaldua and colorist Justin Ponsor's artwork is dazzling enough to barely cover over a threadbare script that bounces from scene to scene with little rhyme or reason. There's promise of interesting story to tell down the line, but this series can't withstand too much more filler, especially after having event titles dominate over half of its published issues. It's time for Bendis to prove he's has a story worth telling with Miles, enough for him to fight to retain control over his character. Read Full Review
