    I really enjoyed this issue and it was a much needed win for team Bendis because the race talk shit is killing me, fam. And it always happens on the even numbered issues that I review while Will gets to fuckin sit back lookin' with the odd numbered issues he review lookin at me like, "sucks to be you". I'm glad to see Bendis back on that trap house story telling he excels at. This issue felt long too which I liked; Bendis was able to get a lot into this issue as if it was just a busy day for Miles and it worked very well. This is probably my favorite Civil War tie-in and even issue of this series' run so far. Read Full Review

    Good issue and a good tie-in. Art was great. Bendis was as is usual and issue had some stakes unlike the previous issue. Read Full Review

    It seems like there's a Venom battle on the way, so we're looking toward to a more Spidey-feeling issue. Getting involved in Civil War II causes Bendis to bend some of the usual elements to fit the event, so we're hoping for it to get back to basics. Overall it's a good issue and ties in quite well to the big event, which we can't say for a lot of the tie-in issues. Read Full Review

    This tie-in to Civil War II has got to be one of the best I've read so far and actually made me start thinking that I should read the event........ I probably won't, but I still thought about it for awhile.  With this tie-in, we saw Miles have to consider a lot of things and I can't wait to see what type of person that Miles becomes after this event is all over because it really feels like he's going to have to grow up fast.  Great art, great story, I love this Spider-Man.

    IGN - Joe Ruggirello Sep 15, 2016

    Spider-Man #8 is a funny, expertly drawn comic book that gets totally bogged down by retreading the same ground other Civil War II tie-ins have been covering since July. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Sep 15, 2016

    While this book does seize and jerk a bit in pacing when Bendis has to swerve into the greater Civil War II, the character work and the art make Spider-Man #8 worth a read. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Brian Jacob Sep 16, 2016

    If we have to have a crossover event and have to tie in a character's solo book, then this a thoughtful way to do it. This is a story about disillusionment, conveyed through believable human moments and intense artwork. Unfortunately, that same disappointment carries through in its half-baked handling of Miles' racial identity. It's been five years; hasn't Miles earned the right to be more than a novelty?
