• The explosive first arc finale! There aren't actually any explosions - but there IS a big showdown with our poorly lit villain, and plenty of heartbreak to go around.
•  Nothing will be the same again! Except you're still aging. That's not going anywhere.

    The first arc of ANT-MAN is a hit. We're seeing Scott Lang step up as a hero and a father, and while he isn't completely redeemed in his own eyes, he's working his way back up the ladder to be a hero. ANT-MAN is a fun, comedic book with a big heart, and that's the biggest appeal to it. I highly recommend checking this book and this series out, especially if there's still a hole in your heart where SUPERIOR FOES used to be. Read Full Review

    Ant-Man #5 is a wonderful experience and I am honestly sad to see this story arc end, it left on such an emotional high for me as a reader. Although the last few pages were predictable but you knew it was the right thing to do. You really felt for Scottbecause you understood everything he had been through and the reasons behind why he had to make the choice he made. So to be honest it really touched my heart and no amount of praise is enough for Nick Spencer and Ramon Rosanas. Read Full Review

    "Ant-Man" #5 is the conclusion of the first arc from the creative team of Nick Spencer and Ramon Rosanas, and highlights the main themes of the series. Scott Lang has every indication of being a roguish adventurer, but here he is forced to deal with the consequences of having a family while being a superhero. The team have crafted a story that shows how Scott is stretched between two worlds, and he come to the conclusion that if he doesn't choose one of them, both will fall apart. Read Full Review

    This title is hilarious. A total spot on depiction of one of Marvel's smallest heroes. Spencer/Rosanas are a perfect pairing to update my favorite Avenger, and I look forward to every issue that follows. I hope you will heed my advice and pick this title up and makre its on your pullist! Read Full Review

    The comic is definitely still enjoyable, but certain parts of this big conclusion just rubbed me wrong is all. Read Full Review

    Although the new Avengers movie, Age of Ultron recently came out and it was Iron Man who created Ultron (weird), I am so stoked for the Ant-Man movie coming out soon (and not just because I love Paul Rudd). Ant-Man has got his own series and his own movie now! He’s moving up the list and I couldn’t be happier about it. Check out the Ant-Man series. Read Full Review

    Issue five might be the least funny of all the issues thus far, but what it lacks in comedy, it more than makes up for with pathos. Lang may think he's D-list or worse, but Ant-Man continues to cast him as a compelling leading man starring in a solo title that understands his value and narrative weight. Read Full Review

    Consider it growing pains - Ant-Man is going to be part of Marvel's collective consciousness for at least a little while, thanks to the character's upcoming film. But just like moviegoers are going to be curious how this character is going to stand out amongst the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spencer and Rosanas really need to carve Scott Lang's niche out further. While he's a little bit of a screw-up in the same vein as Spencer's Boomerang was in Superior Foes of Spider-Man, it's not pronounced enough to really make him stand out. There's tons of potential behind Ant-Man, but this issue barely scratches the surface. Read Full Review
