    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Nov 10, 2016

    The Clone Conspiracy #2 nailed how the story continues to evolve. Dan Slott did a great job introducing new players in the form of Spider-Gwen and Kaine into the conflict. At the same time we got plenty of development for Spider-Man and Jackal with a big hook ending that creates a lot of questions for the story moving forward. Add in Jim Cheung's big event style artwork and there is really no reason for Spider-Man fans not to pick up The Clone Conspiracy. It's easily Marvel's best event going on right now.

    Don't let the "clone" part scare you off, either. Slott and is doing something really cool and different here. And besides, how can you not want to read a series where Miles Warren openly acknowledges that his old costume looked like a fuzzy version of Yoda? Read Full Review

    Some very interesting questions are raised, and by issue's end it seems the villain in this tale may be someone we never expected. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Inhuman Mongo Nov 14, 2016

    The art team really shine in this event. I recommend picking up the issues based entirely on the art. Justin Ponsor colors just make these issues mesmerizing! Jim Cheung, John Dell and Justin Ponsor give us another beautiful comic in issue #2. Once again, it feels a tad heavy on exposition and the pace suffers for it. I did enjoy the inclusion on Kaine and Spider-Gwen and the hook (which I chose not to spoil) at the issues conclusion has me ready for issue #3. Read Full Review

    Artistically, CLONE CONSPIRACY feels anachronistic in comparison to other AMAZING SPIDER-MAN comics in recent years. The combination of Cheung's realistic figures, Dell's moderately heavy inking, and Ponsor's muted color pallette gives CLONE CONSPIRACY #2 a more retro vibe, as if they channeled the 1970s during production, which is fitting, given the resurrection of many of Spider-Man's iconic baddies who made their mark on the title decades ago. As a whole, CLONE CONSPIRACY #2 is a phenomenal issue, even better than the last. This event is a must-read for any fan of Spider-Man. Don't wait for the trade to come out. Go to your local comic store, and pick this up as soon as you can. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 21, 2016

    Overall this issue was a mixed bag because while the art does a suitable job of representing event quality comics the story suddenly feels all over the place by introducing new concepts and ideas that feel very out of place from what we were previously reading. A possibly classic personal tale about Spidey has turned into a dimension hopping affair that I feel suits Dr. Who fans more than traditional Spider-Man fans like myself. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Dan Gvozden Nov 10, 2016

    Dead No More: The Clone Conspiracy #2 is another exposition heavy entry in the event, that spends far too much time rehashing elements of the previous issue. Even then, the new elements introduced here move the story away from the personal, grounded drama that was advertised into threats of zombies and multiversal danger that prove far less compelling.

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Nov 9, 2016

    Spider-Man: The Clone Conspiracy #2 is a beautiful comic, but readers looking for a new explosive installment of this event series will be let down by its cameo packed script. Though he's been preparing for this event for a while now, Dan Slott still has too much narrative ground to cover in the early going to make this the blockbuster it should be. Thankfully the art team makes the most of what they have and provide readers the dynamism that the script lacks. The dead are rising but Spider-Man: The Clone Conspiracy #2 still has a ways to go before it can rise above its own shortcomings. Read Full Review
