    I like this issue despite the fact that I didn't get my fight with Miles and the Six. Hopefully, we will get that showdown soon. Also, I don't know where the setup with Miles' parents is going, I just hope it's something good. Moving them away from the situation just seems like it robs the reader the opportunity to see them interact with Aaron, which is something we desperately need. They are just as much invested in this as Miles is. Read Full Review

    SPIDER-MAN #238 takes an exciting premise but falls flat in a somewhat uneventful story. Brian Michael Bendis writes a pretty funny and interesting script, but it can't make up for the plot. Not even Brian Reber's superb coloring can save the book from the story's dull nature. Read Full Review

    Spider-Man #238 is a solidly good issue of the Miles Morales series. It has tension, action, and a compelling narrative. Sometimes comics just work, especially when they have the great artwork of Bazaldua and Reber. This one earns a recommendation. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Mar 7, 2018

    I think I’m going to take a break from this book. I simply can’t imagine anything being done in the remaining two issues that will make this boring and costly endeavor worth the trouble. Miles Morales is a character I genuinely like, but it is way past time for him to have a new writer. Until that issue rolls in, I’ll get my fix from Champions, which is also getting a new writer. I’m going to recommend that everyone skip on this book. It didn’t have enough redeeming qualities to make it enjoyable now, and the future doesn’t look good enough to invest in. Pass.
