    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Jul 20, 2016

    The issue ends in a cliffhanger when Miles' mother visits Jessica Jones at her office. She arrives to cancel her services, and stays to here what she's found out about her son – and that's where it ends. Either way, things are getting increasingly hard for our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Brian Jacob Jul 23, 2016

    Rather than derail things, "Civil War II" offers a way to build upon the series, its characters, and the ideas of race, honesty, and trust that it's been steadily exploring. Big ideas, but handled in a way that respects Miles fans of all ages. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Jul 22, 2016

    This was a good issue to get back into the messiness of Miles's social life and school life outside of being Spider-Man. We'll have to wait till next issue to see what side of the Civil War II line Miles will find himself on when push gets ready to shove. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 21, 2016

    This issue officially inducts Miles Morales into the events of Civil War, but it suggests that the series would be better off remaining standalone. Read Full Review

    As issues go, it had moments of humor and honesty, and the plot is still going strong. But it does feel a bit slight at times: some of the dialogue is a bit repetitive and it's the weakest of the series so far. However, even at its weakest, it's still a fine comic book. SPIDER-MAN #7 continues the CIVIL WAR II tie-in trend, but if the whole event plays out like this issue, I won't mind that much. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 25, 2016

    Miles has himself a difficult decision in front of him from what this issue brings and while the majority of the issue is simply setup, it's still a decent read that's filled with great art.   Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 25, 2016

    In short, it's an issue that works with a lot of different plot points, and does so in interesting ways, but never feels like a complete story so much as a chapter of a larger book, randomly cut up to fit the page count. Spider-Man #6, thus, shows us the best and the worst of a Bendis-written story, with strong characters, really well-done dialogue and little activity of note, with solid art and possible ramifications in the big parallel crossover story.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 23, 2016

    This issue was a nice mix of the good and the meh. We had some great character building, fitting Goldballs into the Miles/Ganke dynamic, while adding some new fruit to the whole shebang. Seeing Miles and Fabio help Ganke get a girlfriend would be a pretty great subplot. Likewise, I enjoyed the scenes where Rio went to great lengths to not talk to her mother. That's some more solid character work. This whole series has been pretty low key, but at least Bendis is working with a nice and entertaining cast. Unfortunately, there's also a big piece where Iron Man lays out the pros and cons of Civil War II to Miles, and that just wasn't very interesting. I suppose it puts a lot on the kid's shoulders, and that should be fun to watch…but it hasn't amounted to very much just yet. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Jul 24, 2016

    Spider-Man #6 is a good tie-in, but a bad Spider-Man book, and that's hard to get past. Read Full Review
