    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Apr 22, 2010

    Once again, Brian Michael Bendis creeps me out by his uncanny ability to write engaging and realistic teen characters in the most unusual and unrealistic of circumstances. This issue strays away from the action for the most part and instead focuses on the most mundane of teenage activities. While you might think that this would mean the issue would be less than thrilling, the creative team keeps things very fresh and entertaining. Who would've thought a comic featuring an extended haircut scene could earn a Read Full Review

With an excellent mix of action, comedy, and character interactions Ultimate Comics Spider-Man continues to be one of the best comics on the market right now.

    IGN - Andy Bentley Apr 21, 2010

    Ultimate Spider-man remains a perfect gateway into modern comics. I think the genre is probably the best fit for Bendis' dialog and the stories are fun, exciting, and easily accessible. Even though the Ultimate Universe has become a bit of a relic, the Spider-Man stories are still a breath of fresh air. Read Full Review

    But this issue is mostly setup for the next story, so it's just a slightly above-average outing this time. Of course, this comic usually operates at a higher level, so even an average issue is better than most other comics on the stands. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jason Sacks Apr 20, 2010

    It's really very refreshing to read such a fun story, and it made me laugh and smile to see Peter hanging out with all his fun friends. This isn't the same old brooding Peter Parker that Steve Ditko used to draw, but who cares? It's David Lafuente's book now. When reading this comic, I laughed, I had a good time and I really enjoyed the 10 or 15 minutes I spent reading this comic. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - inferiorego Apr 21, 2010

    This hasn't been the strongest issue of the series, but it is still a great series none-the-less. If you want to keep your run going, or see how the whole Spider-Woman thing turns out, pick up the book. If you're a casual reader of the series, you may want to pass. In my opinion, this series is the best of what the Ultimate universe is currently offering. This issue may not have been the strongest, but this book is usually phenomenal. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Apr 25, 2010

    The relaunch of "Ultimate Spider-Man" as... "Ultimate Spider-Man" seems slightly pointless. (Did anyone else notice that the whole "Ultimate Comics" brand never actually appeared aside from in solicitations? Seriously, look at the covers as well as the indicia at the end of each issue, it's not there.) At its core, this is really just "Ultimate Spider-Man" #142. It's not a perfect comic, but it's fun, if slightly overpriced. Business as usual. Read Full Review
