Surprising anyone who knows Peter Parker (but probably not those who know Miles Morales), the Spider-Men have been keeping up their weekly meetup at the Coffee Bean! Sadly, that hasn't given them any insight into the machinations of the Jackal!!! And what do all these mysterious interludes add up to?

    In The Spectacular Spider-Men #2, Jackal's cloning experiments continue to threaten society. Some students prove more adept than others at discerning fantasy from reality. Greg Weisman's Spider-ode to Cheers spins a healthy web of Thwippage and Quippage while reminding us that nurturing relationships is as important as accomplishing personal and career goals.

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Apr 17, 2024

    There is much more substance within Spectacular Spider-Men #2. The storyline of the clones has expanded, seeming to infiltrate various aspects of regular life and subsequently draw the superheroes' attention Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 17, 2024

    Expect incredible art from one of the greatest Spider-Man artists, with some of the best quipping and comedy writing for Spider-Man in some time. The Spectacular Spider-Menis vibrant, fun, and hard to put down. Read Full Review

    Ramos delivers some beautifully detailed and visually fun art throughout the issue. I love the visual style of this series and how it matches the lighter, fun tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Apr 17, 2024

    Spectacular Spider-Men #2 is marked by great art, great action, and an intriguing mystery at its heart. However, the script is overshadowed by too many scenes, chaotically placed, which leaves you feeling like it was meant to be read while scrolling through Twitter (or X or whatever they call it these days).

    This is a big step up from the first issue. The dialogue is better and it's a little more coherent overall. It's a start.

    A lot of fun, but the people complaining that this is not really the Peter and Miles from their solo books might be right. Doesn't bother me since this is the only Spidey book I am buying, but if this is in continuity, it should mesh up better. Also, the KERCHUNK should be a dead giveaway to Spidey. It's a sound he recognized way back in the Claremont/Byrne days of X-Men.

    A decent issue and vastly superior to the current run of Amazing Spider-Man. I'm enjoying the relationship between Peter and Miles and their friends at the Coffee shop. There is also a pretty intriguing mystery going on where people are getting their hearts desires. The mystery seems to have something to do with the Jackal and clones, and I'm also seeing some clues towards maybe Arcade being involved.

    I'm really not a fan of Humberto Ramos though.

    It was entertaining. Not sure what some of the side storylines are leading to. I also think the whole She-Rat part was just not needed.

    It's fine, but continues to be a messy series. I just wish it was more focused and script was more tight.

    Previously, The Spider-Men took down a giant, mutant copy of Jackal who had torn through campus. While an investigation into the original Jackal uncovered a burnt corpse in the rubble.

    Meanwhile, people all over seem to be living out their wildest dreams…

    Currently, we find ourselves in a morgue, staring at the charred remains of a dead body, along with Detective Shari Sebbens, Forensic Specialist Carlie Cooper, and Doctor Jane Foster. Confused Carlie explains to inquiring Shari that the very burned and very dead skeleton is an adult male who appears to have burned to death. Or has he? Genius Jane, informs perplexed Shari and pedantic Carlie that virtually every cell in his body exploded. C more
