    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.

    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

    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

    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
