Ahmed succeeds here by making sure that Miles' choices and the consequences he has to deal with are all his own, and although he does get a little bit 'Parker Lucked' at certain points, Ahmed is mostly successful.The real shining star is the issue midway through the volume in which Miles and friends try to ditch their overbearing vice principal to play hooky for the day (with added Spider-Hijinks, of course). It's this day-in-the-life type story that really hammers home how well Ahmed understands these characters and the types of stories he wants to tell with them.On art, Javier Garron takes the reins and his designwork for Miles and his friends is astoundingly good. They all feel up to date and current, while maintaining their own personalities without becoming just stereotypical teens. The superhero stuff ain't half bad either, but the civilian stuff is where Garron really shines.Miles Morales is back, back, back again, but this time seems like it'll stand out above the pack for really trying something a little different rather than relying on Miles' popularity and the same old villains over and over again. Lookin' at you, Bendis. Always lookin' at you.

I'm not even sure what to think about Starling. But I guess I'll keep reading and see where this goes!

    For a first issue, this does all it needs to. The exposition explains for new readers what's come before. As a reader already familiar with Miles' backstory, I thought the presentation of the exposition was fresh. I also like the direction Ahmed takes us, merging Miles' development with feelings of modern day problems. Sometimes, it's nice to get away from the news. But here, the inclusion of recent, current events only ties Miles' helplessness to what I know I (and my friends) feel. We want to For a first issue, this does all it needs to.

But here, the inclusion of recent, current events only ties Miles' helplessness to what I know I (and my friends) feel. We want to help. We don't know how.And all the while, Miles has life and school and responsibilities, and we can relate when a situation involving robberies and costumed villains appears, and Miles is like "THIS I know" and it's something we also know. We can transition away from reality again, though the creative team has already married fact with fiction. It's a cool effect and I don't know if I've ever read a comic that can boast the same feat. I think this also makes reality a bit more manageable when you know Miles is as lost in it as we are.The art's great and this new direction shows a lot of promise. Nothing else really HIT ME with the WOWS but I feel this will be a great title to give to all ages, and I do want it to succeed. 34.25/50

    Okay here is the bottom line. The artwork is solid and the writing is good on this book. But? It just isn't that exciting. For those who are becoming fans of the Spider-verse film this book works as a great jumping on point for new readers. Its just I have been reading Miles adventures since Bendis created the character and what truly made the character unique is missing. Miles just worked better in a universe where there was no Peter Parker. Do not get me wrong I like when Pete & Miles team Okay here is the bottom line. The artwork is solid and the writing is good on this book. But? It just isn't that exciting. For those who are becoming fans of the Spider-verse film this book works as a great jumping on point for new readers. Its just I have been reading Miles adventures since Bendis created the character and what truly made the character unique is missing. Miles just worked better in a universe where there was no Peter Parker. Do not get me wrong I like when Pete & Miles team up once in a while. But when Miles was in the Ultimate universe he had to rely on himself a bit more. He started to fight unique villains of his own. They were not all of Pete's hand me down rogues gallery. But as far as the story goes here it was okay. Miles has to team up with the Rhino & Captain America to investigate why teens have been disappearing and reappearing with powers all over the city of New York. The dialogue was handle well between the main characters. The supporting cast is where things are falling apart. Ganke and Miles parents just aren't as interesting here as they were in the Bendis runs. From what I here Marvel is contemplating the return of the Ultimate Universe. But for now I really hope the series will get more exciting. For right now Nick Spencer is writing the better Spidey book. But I am still interested in seeing what Miles will become now without Bendis. Mr. Ahmed has introduced Uncle Aaron aka the Prowler back into the mix so I am curious to see what is coming down the road for our younger Spider-man.

    First six issues read individually.I remember reading that Brian Michael Bendis was moving to DC and feeling shock and worry. What would happen to his creations. His move may not have just benefited himself and DC but Marvel as well. Kelly Thompson has written 2 arcs of Jessica Jones and Saladin Ahmed has taken over Miles Morales, both injecting different perspectives into two high profile franchises. And Ahmed scripting with Javier Garron drawing a new starting point arc just as Miles hits the First six issues read individually.I remember reading that Brian Michael Bendis was moving to DC and feeling shock and worry.

And Ahmed scripting with Javier Garron drawing a new starting point arc just as Miles hits the big screen was extreme good luck. This first arc introduces a new superhero rival, Starling, who is very much Punisheresque to the Daredevilesque Miles and hits home the difference between fighting crime and trying to help as a friendly neighborhood Spider-man. It includes team ups with Captain America and Rhino and a host of new and returning villains. Including the worst Vice Principal ever.Amazing art, heartfelt moments and fun action, this is a must for fans of Spider-man, the Spider-verse or for more adventurous YA.

    I enjoyed this run of Spider-Man. Miles is such a great Spider-Man because he cycles back to that idea of Spider-Man really having to figure out who he is and how this hero stuff works. Saladin Ahmed does an amazing job of bringing in a lot of current political issues that lots of people struggle with in terms of how to deal with this shitty current political regime that so stridently embraces white supremacy. What is our responsibility to each other and to ourselves in trying to fight back agai I enjoyed this run of Spider-Man.

This is one of the things that I really enjoy about Squirrel is well, this kind of ability that some of these heroes have to cross that divide and find the heart in some of the super villains. All in all, a very good read. Can't wait for the next issues.

    Please, please read this! I have been reading one issue at a time over the past couple of months, and it is wonderful! I felt like I was reading a very well done YA graphic novel. I'm also reading The Magnificent Ms. Marvel written by Ahmed, and he's such a talented writer. This series is witty with engaging art work. I highly recommend it. :)

    Fast-paced, quippy, and totally what I needed in between bigger denser books. I LOVE Miles Morales. My only wish is that it slowed down a bit and did more character development but hey that's barely a complaint. This is super fun!

    Filled the Ms. Marvel-shaped hole in my comics heart. May it run for just as long.
