    Ahmed gets miles voice 100% This story is basically about Miles getting kidnapped and tortured And it sounds super bleak, but it somehow keeps up with hope While that s happening, his father and uncle and mother must work together to rescue him On top of that Green Goblin from the ultimate universe is here What is happening Oh yeah and it is Miles birthday too This is a jammed pack volume with a lot of wonderful family interactions I loved Miles with his family and friends I thought him Ahmed gets miles voice 100% This story is basically about Miles getting kidnapped and tortured And it sounds super bleak, but it somehow keeps up with hope While that s happening, his father and uncle and mother must work together to rescue him On top of that Green Goblin from the ultimate universe is here What is happening Oh yeah and it is Miles birthday too This is a jammed pack volume with a lot of wonderful family interactions I loved Miles with his family and friends I thought him being kidnapped was both scary and exciting I loved Green Goblin showing his big goblin ass again I loved almost all of this The only thing I disliked it went so fast Just when I was getting into it it ended 6 issues a volume people, we need it Overall great stuff Ahmed is doing great things for miles

    I think Ahmed might actually be better suited to writing about Miles than BMB himself This arc actually gave me a lump in the throat a couple of times Miles father and uncle reuniting, Miles birthday We also finally find out why Miles has his mother s last name Miles grandfather wasn t a very nice man, and also, if he had his father s last name, he d be Miles Davis The Assessor storyline was appropriately sinister and depressing and I imagine its effects will come back in some way in I think Ahmed might actually be better suited to writing about Miles than BMB himself This arc actually gave me a lump in the throat a couple of times Miles father and uncle reuniting, Miles birthday We also finally find out why Miles has his mother s last name Miles grandfather wasn t a very nice man, and also, if he had his father s last name, he d be Miles Davis The Assessor storyline was appropriately sinister and depressing and I imagine its effects will come back in some way in the future The reappearance of the Ultimate Green Goblin is also interesting and we ll have to see where that goes The artwork was strong throughout this I loved this volume

    A bit to reliant on cameos and crossovers Miles Morales feels truly takes a back set in his own comic book series Fans of Into the Spiderverse will find that this rendition of Morales is disappointing at best.

    Bring On The Bad Guys is a little misleading this volume pits Miles against a faceless villain who manages to warp his mind and body in a surprisingly heartwrenching few issues that require his father and his uncle to suit back up to try and free him The art in these issues really sells the harrowing experience that poor Miles goes through, with some excellent use of blank space, a real testament to the old less isdeal.The oversized issue 10 which is also issue250 300 I don t r Bring On The Bad Guys is a little misleading this volume pits Miles against a faceless villain who manages to warp his mind and body in a surprisingly heartwrenching few issues that require his father and his uncle to suit back up to try and free him The art in these issues really sells the harrowing experience that poor Miles goes through, with some excellent use of blank space, a real testament to the old less isdeal.The oversized issue 10 which is also issue250 300 I don t remember, it s an anniversary of some kind was a surprise the twist of the issue initially made me very sad, because it draws on Brian Bendis and Sara Pichelli s horrendous Spider Men II miniseries, but I trust Ahmed enough to know that he ll do something useful with the character in question The Ultimate Green Goblin return is less of a twist it s on the cover , but also intrigues methan I d expected.The continued presence of Starling is quite nice too her secret origin is only a few pages in issue 10, but she s itching to be the breakout character of the series We ll see what Ahmed and friends have in store for her going forward Oh, and there s some material from the Absolute Carnage prelude issue from FCBD 2019, but it s mostly just Miles and Peter meeting up to beat up Shocker Short and sweet, but mostly just filler.I m rounding up for the most part here this isof s a 3.5 than a true 4, but hey, that s not bad

    A disjointed follow up to Saladin Ahmed s decent first take on Mile Morales The art is all over the place, the faces in particular looking quite bad Miles is kidnapped by The Assessor, possibly an AI judging his superhuman abilities That plotline abruptly ends with the introduction of Ultimatum another Mile Morales, this one villainous Neither plotline seems particularly interesting Hopefully the next volume is longer and bothers to tell a coherent story.

    For all that it works as a teen superhero adventure complete with hilarious lampshading of a birthday where somehow we never quite find out how old the birthday boy is , this is quite a knotty read too Some of that comes with the arrival of the Ultimate Green Goblin and his associate, reopening the mysteries in which previous writers tangled Miles without ever fully resolving them does he remember that the world where he lived wasn t always the world he was from And part of it, alas rather For all that it works as a teen superhero adventure complete with hilarious lampshading of a birthday where somehow we never quite find out how old the birthday boy is , this is quite a knotty read too Some of that comes with the arrival of the Ultimate Green Goblin and his associate, reopening the mysteries in which previous writers tangled Miles without ever fully resolving them does he remember that the world where he lived wasn t always the world he was from And part of it, alas rather closer to the bone right now, is just the constant background noise of a young man trying to be a hero in a world where the past never lets go, evil is in power, and the colour of his skin constantly threatens to make him a specimen or a target

    Although I have enjoyed what co creator Brian Michael Bendis has done with Miles Morales, it s what came after Bendis where the character has truly shined from the cinematic masterpiece Spider Man Into the Spider Verse to the current comic book run by Saladin Ahmed and Javier Garr n Based on the first volume, Ahmed and Garr n makes Miles their own, as along with aging him up and has dialogue that feels true to his heritage, he has his own personal issues that are different from what Nick Spenc Although I have enjoyed what co creator Brian Michael Bendis has done with Miles Morales, it s what came after Bendis where the character has truly shined from the cinematic masterpiece Spider Man Into the Spider Verse to the current comic book run by Saladin Ahmed and Javier Garr n Based on the first volume, Ahmed and Garr n makes Miles their own, as along with aging him up and has dialogue that feels true to his heritage, he has his own personal issues that are different from what Nick Spencer is currently doing with Peter Parker in Amazing Spider Man.What s interesting about this volume is that although the creators are pushing the character with his parents announcing that Miles is going to be a brother, Ahmed is going to similar territory to what Bendis was doing, from a central conflict involving his former supervillain of an uncle to a beastly supervillain whose appearance is spoiled from the front cover Considering that the crazy stuff that happened a few years ago with Secret Wars which ended the Ultimate Marvel imprint, Miles is getting flashes of his Ultimate past, leading to a mighty cliffhanger tying in Bendis and Sara Pichelli s lacklustre miniseries Spider Men II.What works best about this volume is when it was doing something new as there are two issues that showcases the best from Ahmed and Garr n When Miles is kidnapped by a mysterious new villain known as the Assessor, he is tested and observed to chilling results with the fear of his friends and family in danger Meanwhile, Miles s parents search high and low for their firstborn, and suddenly seek help from Uncle Aaron, who uses his alter ego of the Prowler to hopefully save our young Spidey With this new villain, who also has a cool teleporting henchman called Asset Quantum, he pushes Miles to his physical limit as no matter how many times he tries to break free, Miles is left traumatised by the whole experience Due to our hero imprisoned, it allows the dynamic between Jefferson and his brother Aaron to change for the better Most of this volume is drawn by Javier Garr n, who continues to make this title one of the most visually striking comic books to be published by Marvel Garr n manages to give each of his issues its own identity with 8 being the standout as the panels are deliberately small with a lot of the pages in pitch black, metaphorically plunging Miles into literal darkness.Anytime the comic breaks away from the horror, there is a breeze to Miles s personal life that feels welcoming as his alter ego is recognised by those closest to him, including his intimate birthday party This balance of light and dark is compelling enough to explore where Miles adventure goes next
