Paul Newton reviewed Spider-Man #6 Jul 23, 2016
8.0

This was a compelling issue with good characters and an interesting plot. The only issue is the very heavy-handed tie in to Civil war 2. Were this not a Civil War tie in, but another chapter in the Miles Morales story, this issue would be rated higher than an 8.

•  For the Visions, those secrets are real, actual skeletons.
•  The thing about secrets is they always have a cost... and one of the Visions is going to pay with their life.

Nothing is wrong with Dc Rebirth's Justice League title. But that being said, there is a feeling of something missing when your reading this current incarnation of the Juice League. Hopefully this title regains the wonder and acclaim that Johns and Morison brought to the team.

King's Batman is one of the strongest titles in the Dc Rebirth lineup. It has the perfect mixture of Frank Miller's Batman, and Snyder's Batman. Hopefully this title continues on the path its on, and becomes a classic run for the character.
