    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 12, 2021

    Spider-Man: Spider's Shadow #2continues to inch Peter Parker down a dark path while showcasing how different characters within the Spider-Man mythos react to his new persona. The last page even introduces a certain character who could inject a new level of drama into the proceedings. I look forward to seeing how Spidey interacts with this character. Read Full Review

    The second issue of Spider-Man: Spider's Shadow #2 somehow manages to improve upon its debut, proving that Chip Zdarsky has not only a masterful grasp of the various facets of Peter Parker/Spider-Man, but also is an absolute gift to the "What If" story. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox May 18, 2021

    The whole creative team are firing on all cylinders in this issue as there's more blood and guts on display than an episode of Dexter! If you've not added this short four-issue series to your online or print subscription you better hurry as issues of both #1 and #2 are selling out fast. Don't be the only one not talking about this! I give it another blood-curdling five out of five, particularly for the onomatopoeia used by Joe Caramagna as the violence happens just out of shot. Read Full Review

    Zdarsky keeps both the drama and the excitement level high. It is honestly such a quick read because it flows so well. The art by Ferry is perfect as well. I love this book and I cannot get enough of it. I am almost sad that it is a five part series as I want more for sure. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho May 16, 2021

    Spider-Man: Spider's Shadow should set the bar for what if stories. Chip Zdarsky writes something new and interesting for the wall crawler that should be engaging to all fans. The pencils and colors work very well together and should only add to the reading experience. Spider-Man: Spider's shadow #2 is a can't miss book. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 24, 2021

    Spider-Man: Spider's Shadow has laid the groundwork for a frightening alternate reality. It's not dark just to be dark. It explores the feelings of shock and terror that come from such a startling transformation. While it has the benefit of working with decades-old characters as its base, it transcends that familiarity and delivers a solid and terrifying story on its own. Read Full Review

    As for Spider-Man: Spiders Shadow #2, it flows fine. I do feel like they might be dragging out the story to fit a trade. Nevertheless, this length can work if the point is to slowly show Peter succumb to his alien costume. Then, that could be interesting. However, that will depend on how subsequent issues handle the story. Read Full Review
