While responding to a devastating earthquake in South America, Doc Savage and company discover that not only was the disaster far from natural, but that it seems to be linked to a menace that Doc faced many years before. As he begins to investigate, Doc discovers that a number of closed cases that he had considered to be isolated threats were in fact part of a larger web that he never suspected before now.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 2, 2015

    Doc Savage is an interesting character to work with and I like the idea that they're keeping both past and present there as opposed to just rebooting for the present and trying to modernize it all. GIving us this taste of the past may be a bit more than it needed, but having the depth of knowledge and skill to work with alongside so much experience is a positive. Roberson certainly captures the polished team here well with what they do and his work in the flashback side is pretty strong in setting all the pieces there in old school style but without being overly done. Rezak definitely looks to be a solid choice here as his designs both past and present are really well done as there's a sense about it that it's not looking to be flashy or overly stylized, taking us out of the story. It's a perfect complement to it that helps to bring it all together well with some great detail and good variety to the characters and settings. I'm definitely looking forward to more.

    Doc: Savage: The Spider's Web #1 is not the type of release that's going to change people's opinions on the Man of Bronze but hey it's fun from beginning to end. And if you're a fanboy or fangirl that's looking for an old school adventure then rest easy because you're in luck, as this first issue in this engaging yarncomes recommended. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - John Wallace Dec 1, 2015

    The writing is solid enough – after all, Chris Roberson is a very accomplished wordsmith. The art is also solid. Cezar Razek does a good job with the dynamic poses, but some of the panel framing feels a little odd, forced even. Overall, the story is, again, solid, nothing more, nothing less. A decent lead into what could, with a little work, be an interesting series. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Chris Smith Dec 2, 2015

    If we're expected to be on the edge of our seat watching an 80 year old character do the same shit he's always done at least pull it off with style. This latest version of Doc Savage has a long way to go to fulfill its promise of pulp-revival glory. Read Full Review
