    SPIDER-MAN #237 prepares Miles Morales for Bendis' final issue. Bendis tells an emotionally resonant tale of multiple families reuniting, for better or worse. The art makes the issue all the more resonant. A must read for Spider-fans. Read Full Review

    Aaron Davis is still that cool uncle and you can tell that he hopes that he can lure Miles to his view of the world. There are a few subtle surprises outside of Miles and Aaron's conversation that are going to make things difficult for the both of them. Miles' personal life and Aaron's professional life may become very vulnerable very soon. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Feb 7, 2018

    Sinister Six Reborn is a story that’s been giving me mixed feelings. It is so far a solid, entertaining story that feels fairly unoriginal and fundamentally unnecessary. If you’re someone that’s never read a book starring Miles, this would be a fine choice to start with, but you’d be much better off reading his beginnings anyway. If you’ve been keeping up, this does progress things in a suitable and sufficiently satisfying way. It’s worth reading but only if you’ve been dedicated to this volume all together. Read Full Review

    Spider-Man #237 sets up some potentially powerful, heated moments between family members, but because of Bendis and Bazaldua's execution "Sinister Six Reborn" continues to fizzle. Read Full Review

    This feels like a skippable episode of an otherwise enjoyable story. Read Full Review

    Key characters have key conversations, two generic Bendis Central Casting tough guys stand in for Red Hulk and Hobgoblin, and after what feels like two years of half-hearted development, Danika slides down into awfulness. While there's useful and important stuff going on here, it evolves very slowly. The art evolves as well; it attacks a wide range of emotional expressions. While the balance is tilted toward successful portrayals over unsuccessful ones, the ratio seems wrong for a title that could/should be in Marvel's A-list. This comic strives to be better than average but doesn't quite stick the landing; to me, this is the epitome of a 7/10 issue.

    If you want to see an example of characters getting their individuality subverted by a writer's preset templates, the Hobgoblin/Red Hulk scene would be a pretty good example. Why would you pass on the opportunity to write some fun General Maverick dialogue, just to do generic tough guy talk? And don't get me started on the reduction of Roderick Kingsley to buffoonery. Ah well.

    What we got here was decent, but ultimately did not do anything. This arc has been pretty bad so far. The Sinister Six have barely been apart of the story. There is some good dialogue between Miles and Aaron, but that's about it. The art remains solid. it's just that the story really needs to pick up soon.

    If you’ve read a current bendis comic you know exactly what to expect here, lots of dialogue and no action, although it was cool to see Miles’ uncle back and see their conversation, it just felt very dull to me.
    This is definitely a comic you’d pick up only if you’re a long time fan of miles, otherwise there’s much for you to enjoy.
    Bendis really half assed this one, we didn’t even get an explanation about why Miles’ uncle was back, when all you needed to do was basically say secret Wars Shenanigans.

    Ok a weird issue with only talking. To many talking.

    Cover - Nice but a lie. 1/2
    Writing - Really when I find bendis interesting he do that. And I think he laugh of trolling us. 1.5/3
    Arts - The art is good. At least their is some action (Not many) with red hulk. 2.5/3
    Feeling - Disappointed by all the talking, and I will even not talking of the cliffhanger. 0/2
