    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Jun 19, 2024

    Pairing with Wilsons emotionally and socially driven coloring, the aesthetic of the book feels as foundational as the artwork in the original Ultimate Spider-Man. With one story arc under its belt, its clear that this book will go down as a defining moment in Spider-Mans history, offering a real, substance path forward for the character in terms of plot, character, and artwork. This is a book that belongs on any comic readers shelf, Spider-Man fan or not. It is an offering of what Big 2 comics can be when they have the chance to grow and change, striving for something familiar yet original. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 19, 2024

    Ultimate Spider-Man #6 has everything fans have been asking for in a Spider-Man comic. It features big action, wholesome Peter and MJ scenes, and exceptional art. It also continues to show a Spider-Man who is older but way more green than ever as he tries to figure out this superhero thing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 20, 2024

    Ultimate Spider-Man #6 is yet another example of the excellence that is Jonathan Hickman and Marco Checchetto run. The way they wrap up the first story arc created even more interesting in not just the plans for Spider-Man and Green Goblin but the direction the entire Parker family will take from here. This easily the best Spider-Man comic book we've gotten in years and Marvel's best series right now. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jun 19, 2024

    Ultimate Spider-Man #6 is the issue starving Spider-Man fans have been waiting for. Checchetto delivers the goods with fantastic character acting and art, and Hickman finally takes a break from interesting-yet-unnecessary world-building to give readers an adventure story that mixes action, heart, and intrigue. If it wasn't for a (probable) glaring goof between the art and the script, this would be a nearly perfect issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 19, 2024

    Ultimate Spider-Man #6 is better than the previous issue, but not as good as the first four. The family's reaction feels a bit odd with MJ being far more understanding and calm about it than expected. There seems to be a lack of it hitting them as to what it all means. Maybe we'll see that in the next issue but for what should be a shocking moment, it falls flat and comes far too soon in the series. Read Full Review

    Plot
    Peter and Harry visit Kingpin, as he was part of The Maker's cabal, but they both do not know that they are facing an enhanced human and Wilson Fissk does not hold back in beating them up.

    Peter's bruises were evident in the morning and his daughter inadvertently reveals that she has been doing superhero activities for months.

    Although her children are excited, MJ is worried, but accepts this new facet in Peter's life and using her public relations knowledge officially gives him her code name... SPIDER-MAN.

    This series achieves a different atmosphere for Peter, having a family will be the pillar of support for this superhero activity.

    Theme: HOPE
    Yes. I gave it a 10. I usually ignore the top scores or lowest scores of something. But this, for the first time in a long time, I fully believe, ten toes behind this line, will die on this hill give this a 10.

    I am a 38 year old man. And I cried. I cried tears of joy, Tears of frustration and tears of HOPE. I've read Spider-Man since I was 5.Spider-Man was my hero, as in truly. At 5, my formative years were spent reading old back issues and very early 90s stuff. And more or less, Spider-Man became more than a comic to me, he became an ideal. The things he stood for, his love for MJ. His fierceness to fight for what's right and good. His ability to THINK through his problems,not just rely on his powers, his willi more

    The first arc of Jonathan Hickman’s Ultimate Spider-Man comes to a thrilling conclusion, solidifying its place as Marvel's best current Spider-Man series. In these six issues, Hickman has masterfully crafted a fully realized world with his version of new, yet not-new characters. It has delivered everything Spider-Man fans crave: intense action involving a mature Peter Parker, who also has a home life that includes his perfect partner, MJ. But none of it is lip service. There is an intentionality in this book that shows the creative team knows exactly what they want to do and are flexing all of their creative muscles to achieve it at an extremely high level.

    While we see how much of a family man he is in this universe, I’ve lo more

    Alright. It looks like after 2 rather drab issues we're back in business here. Little was resolved as far as fighting the bad guy here, but it was a great conclusion to our introductory story. It was also a clever way to bring the secret out. How often does a superhero have a family that shares his secret? Frankly it's a fresh twist that actually works. It should be interesting seeing how this impacts the Parker family. I wonder if Uncle Ben will learn it too? The possibilities are vast and quite exciting to consider.
    As for the big battle against the Kingpin, hopefully Spider-Man learned something. Rushing in recklessly is never a good idea. That's one reason I doubt this apparent partnership with Harry will work. Harry is reckless he more

    I enjoyed this a lot, I just hoped for more progress. I was hoping for a Sinister Six throw down for arc 2, but that is clearly not in the cards at this pace.

    The only thing I'm left wanting on in this book is a bit more engaging action. Seeing as it's Peter still getting his feet under him as well as Harry, I can understand. It's their first big fight. Against an opponent they were both completely unprepared for. I just want my jaw to drop at some point from how amazing that will be. I know we'll get there. Before then, we've got some of the best characterization in Spider-Man that I could ask for. It's not 616 Peter and this still feels like the most genuine version of him we've seen in almost 20 years. Peter who cares about his family, Peter who doesn't WANT to hurt people or commit crimes if he doesn't have to. A real boy scout in the best way. Just a good guy doing everything he can to do th more

    Jonahtan hickman is like the Human Torch right now, because he's literally on fire with this run. He is straight up murdering the competition with this run, and I love the chemistry between Peter and Harry, I like how threatening Kingpin is, and I like how Peter's kid chose the suit for him, and how Mary Jane chose his name. It's beautiful, I f*cking love it.

    Very good issue and wonderful series that hit all the beats for a fun and intriguing Spider-Book. But the same family aspect that's a strength in this story was a weakness here in the narrative because MJ's reaction to the reveal felt off to me or maybe there will be delayed ramifications when danger undoubtably rear its head. Harry/Peter Tag-Team is pure fun. Checchetto back on art duty immediately levels up the story and I see why he needs more time and I'm fine with it.

    A solid issue. Kingpin is a menace. I like the character work. I do think it's obvious something is going to happen with Peter's family.

    Thank God we are back to form on this series. I was just about to drop it from my pull list. Two issues with Spider-Man even making an appearance is insane. This is structured very well and there's a decent fight scene as well as scenes with the family. That's why we read this book. I did think it was a cop-out with him telling the family the secret when he was so adamant about not telling them only two issues ago. Otherwise, the issue is great.

    I wish this was perfect. Or an amazing conclusion to the first arc.

    But unfortunately it isn't. There is a lot of amazing stuff here, chemistry between Harry and Peter, amazing art and action.

    But MJ and Richard were disappointment. Richard feels like a non-character and MJ feels too perfect. There is no struggle, no doubts, not even worries or arguments. Just text-book perfectism, which is nice, but not exciting.

    I don't want massive argument or anything, but something. Right now I have gotten very little from MJ as a character and I hoped this would give us something.

    I love MJ. I love her and Peter together, they are my favorite couple in comics and one of my favorites in fiction. So I wanna se more

    I really liked the issue, and seeing Marco Checchetto's art back is always amazing to see. I really did like that this was finally the issue that the rest of the Parker family found out about his secret of being the wallcrawler. Seeing the chemistry between Peter and Harry definitley was fun to see before the action and looking forward to how they grow as a pair in their teamwork and in friendship and in their sole fighting ability. It was cool to see how green they both kind of are especially Peter, but having something to look forward to later and eventually to see how far he's come in that aspect, in later issues. However, I guess the only thing that held back the rating is just how MJ and Richard reacted, it just seemed like they came t more
