    This issue made two characters I've never really cared for likable... incredibly likable. I actually want to see what happens to Cloak and Dagger. I thought that would never happen. Now, we just have to wait for Miles to put the mask back on. Read Full Review

    Like him or not, Bendis consistently delivers the same high quality with each issue of the series. Next month may see Miles finally coming to terms with his destiny as Spider-man. Readers who are not already reading this series might want to ask themselves, “why the swear word not?” Read Full Review

    Ugh! Bendis goes for the feels so hard on this issue I can hardly take it. The presence of Gwen Stacy was a smart choice, and her exchange with Miles is one of the most heart-wrenching moments of his story to date -- and there have been a lot! This issue made my heart swell up for the guy to the point where I needed to get up and walk around to shake off the feeling. This issue has all of that, plus a beautifully tragic origin for Cloak and Dagger, and a reveal of the villains behind the recent mischief. If you want to get your money's worth and cry a little, then you can't go wrong with picking up Ultimate Comics Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    Prepare to get hit right in the feels, people. Writer Brian Michael Bendis introduces us to Cloak and Dagger this issue, then immediately makes them the most likable characters ever"then also immediately breaks your heart. All of Bendis' skills as a storyteller and character creator are on display this issue as he updates Cloak and Dagger's origins, turning them into some of the most sympathetic heroes ever. I feel for them. Heaven help Cloak and Dagger. Read Full Review

    While I felt only a touch disappointed the villain was only useful as a plot device, I felt like this story got readers back into the character-driven storytelling from before the "United We Stand" crossovers that make this series worth following. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Jun 22, 2013

    David Marquez has set a high standard to impress with such great work in the past, now that he is able to play around with Cloak and Daggers' powers it maintains the streak. Cloak's ghostly powers in particular are well done as he takes up panels. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson Jun 26, 2013

    As the cover implies this issue is more devoted to getting the introduction of Cloak and Dagger into the Ultimate Universe right rather than progressing Miles' story. As long as you're cool with that then this is issue should be sure to please, though it still represents a bit of a dip in Ultimate Comics Spider-Man's otherwise impressive forward momentum.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 20, 2013

    "Ultimate Comics Spider-Man" #24 works nicely, divulges the past of Cloak and Dagger and sets up the present story. These characters are not much older than Miles Morales and their proximity to Morales during a trying emotional stint might be enough to rejuvenate the young hero's optimism. For now, however, Bendis, Marquez, Ponsor and Petit have me hooked on the new adventures of Cloak and Dagger with this issue, which could just as easily have been titled "Ultimate Cloak and Dagger" #1.

    This issue was a fantastic way to get fans revved up for more of Miles inner turmoil as he struggles from hiding his power to feeling the guilt of responsibility. If we got a little more of Miles, this issue would have been even better. Perhaps Bendis is going somewhere with this Cloak and Dagger angle, so lets wait and see. Bendis hasnt let Miles down yet.

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Jun 20, 2013

    Overall it was a balanced issue between the fight between Cloak and Dagger vs. Bombshell and Gwen trying to get Miles to suit up. It does well to make you question what it will take to push him to be Spider-Man again because while the fight that broke loose wasn't much to give him reason, you know that something bigger is coming his way in which he will have to make a choice.
