    Writer Brian Michael Bendis adds some deep characterization to the two Spideys in SPIDER-MEN II #2. He isn't too heavy on the plot in this issue, though. Sara Pichelli's art and Justin Ponsor's coloring make the issue beautiful to look at. Hopefully Bendis adds more plot in later issues, because a five-issue miniseries can only handle one filler issue. Read Full Review

    My issues aside, issue #2 is still a good one, though it doesn't advance the plot too much. The action looks great, the jokes are all there and it still has potential moving forward. Read Full Review

    Spider-Men II #2 may be light on answers, but that doesn't stop it from being a solid continuation to this latest team-up. Building off the fun dynamic that our wall-crawlers share, the creative team give us more than enough to ponder over as we await the next instalment, with the addition of a familiar face sure to please readers.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 19, 2017

    Spider-Men II #2 finds its strength in the interaction between Peter Parker and Miles Morales. Brian Bendis and Sara Pichelli do an excellent job developing the two as different types of Spider-Man who also share a big brother-little brother relationship. Developing the older Miles Morales more will be key in making Spider-Men II as good as its predecessor. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 16, 2017

    Brian Bendis and Sara Pichelli have enjoyed a flawless track record with Spider-Man thus far, but Spider-Men II may turn out to be their first big misfire. This second issue makes a number of poor storytelling choices as it tries to shed light on the long-standing mystery of Miles Morales. In the end, it's hard not to wish Bendis and Pichelli had simply reunited for a more traditional Miles adventure. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Levi Hunt Aug 16, 2017

    Spider-Men II #2 fumbles a reveal five years in the making with a dull and contrived answer. Even brilliant artwork from Sara Pichelli can't save this issue. Read Full Review

    I thought this issue was pretty darn good. If you think Peter is not lying you have to be fooling. There are 3 more issues and I think there is more to the story. Great character work. Art as always was good.

    I really liked the first issue, but this issue...what's the point? We were left with a cliffhanger, as Peter looks shocked, stunned to discover...a Google search that goes nowhere! I like the rapport between the Spider-Men, but aside from being pretty to look at, there's not much to this issue. And...Peter only 3 years older than Miles? What the fuck is that?

    This was a let down. Miles is only 3 years younger than Pete? What happened with continuity?! He was 12 or 13 in first Spider-Men that means Peter had to have been 15, but we all know he wasn't because he was an adult in mid-20s. Miles is 17 since 2014 and since this is comics and he still is 17 now (because he's in high school) then Peter is 20 which is a total cluster f$%k! Not only that, but Bendis goes on to shove his characters down our throats not only that but she went to high school with Peter?!??! WTF?! I won't even go into the fault of that. Also, does Peter really not know who this Miles is? Then why at the end of the original Spider-Men he said "Oh my God"? Did he accidentally open PornHub or something? This is a cop-out and a cheat-out. Also this Miles looks waaay different than the Spider-Man so how does he recognize him? And Peter stop with the childish jokes. I see Marvel keeps on delivering plot holes that ruin the enjoyment out of the people who care for a well written and story with care. Redeems in chemistry I guess.
