    A very solid first outing out for Ahmed as he steps into the size 18 shoes left behind by Brian Michael Bendis This wasn t half bad I liked how Miles teams up with the Rhino to find some missing children I dug seeing a different side of the Rhino That seems to be one of Ahmed s strengths given he successfully used the Absorbing Man to be Black Bolt s best friend over in that title Where this fell apart for me some is the lack of the supporting cast outside of Barbara Everyone else was almo A very solid first outing out for Ahmed as he steps into the size 18 shoes left behind by Brian Michael Bendis This wasn t half bad I liked how Miles teams up with the Rhino to find some missing children I dug seeing a different side of the Rhino That seems to be one of Ahmed s strengths given he successfully used the Absorbing Man to be Black Bolt s best friend over in that title Where this fell apart for me some is the lack of the supporting cast outside of Barbara Everyone else was almost nonexistent, especially Ganke The book could have definitely usedof Ganke s humor and wide eyed amazement The subplots with the assistant principal also felt very old and hackneyed I half expected him to call Miles a slacker as he seemed to step directly out of Back to the Future.Javier Garron s art was very solid And kudos for making it through all 6 issues without a fill in That s some professionalism rarely seen by today s comic book artists

    Miles Morales returns for the first time in a solo series by someone other than Brian Bendis, and it s definitely a breath of fresh air Saladin Ahmed breathes new life into the character and his supporting cast, aging them up just a little and introducing a whole new slew of problems for Miles.It s difficult to write Miles stories now that aren t ones that you could just swap a younger Peter into and get the same result Ahmed succeeds here by making sure that Miles choices and the consequence Miles Morales returns for the first time in a solo series by someone other than Brian Bendis, and it s definitely a breath of fresh air Saladin Ahmed breathes new life into the character and his supporting cast, aging them up just a little and introducing a whole new slew of problems for Miles.It s difficult to write Miles stories now that aren t ones that you could just swap a younger Peter into and get the same result 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

    The story didn t really flow, but it was a lot of fun to read anyway Loved the rhino especially and a nice cameo from Cap Kinda wish they d spent longer on the story in the first couple of comics.

    A satisfying, thorough re introduction to the Mile Morales version of Spider Man Bland storylines are spiced with welcome cameos, such as a hero turn for the Rhino, the helping hand of Captain America , and a new frenemy in Starling I can t say I enjoyed every minute of the volume, particularly finding myself sleepy during the Miles vs Vice principal Whoever issue, but it was overall a mild, nice time Very reminiscent of Saladin Ahmed s run on Ms Marvel More hijinks than plot, although A satisfying, thorough re introduction to the Mile Morales version of Spider Man Bland storylines are spiced with welcome cameos, such as a hero turn for the Rhino, the helping hand of Captain America , and a new frenemy in Starling I can t say I enjoyed every minute of the volume, particularly finding myself sleepy during the Miles vs Vice principal Whoever issue, but it was overall a mild, nice time Very reminiscent of Saladin Ahmed s run on Ms Marvel More hijinks than plot, although I guess the Tombstone Starling thing could go somewhere Swell art, easy on the eyes

    An oh so very generic teen superhero comic with lots of high school hijinks, secret identity angst, an older superhero guest appearance, and c list super villains, including a new one named Snatcher I couldn t resist, I had to yell, Snatcher No snatching I feel no need to pick up the next volume, especially if even the editors don t care enough about the book to correct Miles main love interest, Barbara, being referred to by two different last names.

    When he was first conceived in 2011, the African American Hispanic Spider Man Miles Morales has always been written by co creator Brian Michael Bendis, with the exception of the character popping in event titles and superhero team ups As Bendis has left his beloved creation behind to hang out with the Man of Steel in DC, Miles Morales in now under the helm of Saladin Ahmed, who has already proven his talents at Marvel with Black Bolt.Balancing high school life at Brooklyn Visions Academy with t When he was first conceived in 2011, the African American Hispanic Spider Man Miles Morales has always been written by co creator Brian Michael Bendis, with the exception of the character popping in event titles and superhero team ups As Bendis has left his beloved creation behind to hang out with the Man of Steel in DC, Miles Morales in now under the helm of Saladin Ahmed, who has already proven his talents at Marvel with Black Bolt.Balancing high school life at Brooklyn Visions Academy with the super heroics as the other web slinger in New York, Miles crosses paths with the classic Spidey baddie, the Rhino However, when the two discover that they share the same dilemma of children being kidnapped by a mysterious villain, the Spider and the Rhino join forces whilst our young hero has to cope with the everyday problems of school, friendships and relationships.Having read a lot of Miles Morales from his inception to his appearance in the 2015 event Secret Wars, I have not read any of his post Secret Wars adventures and based on the initial issue of this volume, clearly a lot has happened that I am not aware of, most notably his family, who now knows about his secret identity That said, some things haven t changed as Miles still struggles with his double life, with a dose of levity from his best friend Ganke Lee As much as I enjoyed Bendis writing, Ahmed nails acontemporary spin on Miles, who is a little bit older and has slang in his dialogue Although the first issue was published around the same time that the cinematic masterpiece Spider Man Into the Spider Verse was released, the two versions of Miles share a similar rhythm.Due to what Nick Spencer has been doing with Peter Parker in Amazing Spider Man, Ahmed is conscious to not repeat the similar tropes for Miles, who has his own issues For starters, as part of his creative writing class, Miles has to write a journal, which is cleverly used as his inner monologue throughout the book Showcasing his thoughts and feelings about his recent experiences, we see the consequences of having great responsibility, such as a romance falling apart due to his secrecy, to having a vice principal as his own J Jonah Jameson Some of the ideas have been explored before, most notably the well worn teenage romance, but Ahmed maintains some strong characterisation for our hero.As for the crimefighting antics, you have a mixture of old and new villains, some of which form an uneasy alliance with Miles, such as the Rhino and Starling, providing humour and warmth Although characters such as Snatcher and Tombstone don t leave the greatest impression, the well orchestrated action makes up for it as artist Javier Garr n and colourist David Curiel presents one of the most visually stunning superhero comics Great attention to detail towards a diverse range of characters, the art team knows to convey the many emotions these characters, especially Vice Principal Drutcher, who is just driven by anger as shown through his physicality.With a new creative team tackling Miles Morales, this first volume arguably doesjustice to the character than what Bendis conceived
