    If you loved ANT-MAN by Spencer, Rosanas, and Boyd, then picking this up is a no-brainer. It's a nice end to the series, before the same creative team takes on ASTONISHING ANT-MAN in October. It has a ton of heart and it's nice to see a Last Days issue just be a one-shot. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Aug 27, 2015

    Last Days of Ant-Man could easily be overlooked by fans, coming quite late in the Secret Wars event which people are already feeling burnt out on, but if youre a fan of the current Ant-Man series then its required reading. Spencer and Rosanas fill Scott Langs last hurrah with heart, humor and adventure, just like the previous issues. I look forward to the series returning in October, but for the time being, these two deliver a satisfying conclusion to an unexpected hit. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Aug 27, 2015

    Spencer's skill is in spinning a yarn that is perfectly in keeping with both the event and the tone of his book to date, while also providing an easy access point for people jumping in from other places (such as the recent film). Read Full Review

    This is not a series that should be slept on. I can't stress that enough. Especially after the success of the movie, this series keeps the momentum going incredibly well. This book is truly a treasure and turns a Scott Lang " who you may consider a 2nd-3rd tier character " into one of your Top 5 Dead or Alive favorite heroes. Read Full Review

    There's comedy, action, or emotion in every panel. Last Days of Ant-Man should leave fans excited for October's Astonishing Ant-Man. Read Full Review

    ComicWow!TV - Bhavna Bakshi Aug 27, 2015

    This is a really fun, short Ant-Man story. You don't need to have read any Ant-Man stories previously to understand this one, so that's always good for Marvel newbies. For a really fun story that you don't need to research to understand, this issue is definitely the way to go. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 27, 2015

    This series started and ends strong, consistently delivering light-hearted but sincere super hero adventures. Spencer, Rosanas, Boyd and Lanham have filled this series with their absolute best work and "Ant-Man: Last Days" #1 is a fine sample of their topnotch comic collaboration. I'm thankful for this series as well as its finale and look forward to more Ant-Man adventures from this creative team soon. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Aug 28, 2015

    The only real weakness Last Days Of Ant Man possesses is that it is slightly inaccessible to those who haven't been reading the Ant-Man monthly series. Thankfully, new readers will get a chance to see what they've been missing out on in a few months when the series starts over with a new #1 and " if the final page is at all accurate " a new Scott Lang who is somewhat less firmly on the straight-and-narrow path.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 29, 2015

    As always, Scott Lang is the star of this series, and Spencer still does a great job with the character. He uses Mary to talk up Scott's accomplishments as a hero, helping the little guy to appreciate all he's done with his life. We get some great action in Scott's escape from the Slug's yacht, as well as some nicely peppered one-liners. This is just another quality issue of this great series, and Spencer seems more than ready to dive into the relaunch in a few months. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Aug 29, 2015

    The sad part is, there's a germ of a great idea in this issue, one involving some Golden Age characters making a comeback. It's sweet and funny and clever and they do almost nothing with it. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Sep 4, 2015

    That decision also pays off due in large part to Rosanas art. Rosanas is able to capture age realistically and his clean lines make the whole issue look a bit animated, but realistic at the same time. He has a great handle on both body and facial language, and scenes involving both Scott and the Slug are pretty funny since he's able to render the characters so effectively. His pencils are minimal but effective and you can see his strengths in the choice to not include so many lines. What I didn't see coming is the ending, and although it seemed to have come a bit out of nowhere, the prospects for future stories are rich. Although its sad to see this series go, the creators will be back with an all new series starting in October titled, The Astonishing Ant-Man. The last few pages look as though they may lead into the next series despite the world coming to an end… and because of that I'll be back. Read Full Review
