    Centipede #1 is an out of this world adventure that's fun. Is it weird? Yes. Exciting? Most definitely. But more than all that it's silly entertainment that deserves a spot on your pull-list. Whether you're waxing nostalgic about the past or looking for a new sci fi romp with a lone survivor on an alien world then this one's for you. It's man versus monster and we've only seen the introductory fight boys and girls! Read Full Review

    The story is building too slowly, but the visuals are engaging in this premiere issue. An unnecessary flashback interrupts the proceedings and it takes a while to get some insect action, though I'm liking the visuals, which remind me of a comic from the early 1980s. I'll be back for the second issue, but I've got to get some more bug action. Read Full Review

    I had no idea what to expect with this book and frankly, it could have gone a million different ways. Bemis and Marron definitely came up with something that wasn't expected and it works well as you can still see how it swerve in crazy directions still. The bulk of the book gives us a good first person narrative about surviving in this doomed world and the kind of slow mental breakdown that occurs and Marron paints us a bleak picture without going so far down the rabbit hole that it's too disturbing. It's empty in a way that really does click and engage. I'm far more curious about this than I should be and can't wait to see if the team can pull this off. Read Full Review

    Centipede #1 isn't bad - as a comic book, it's solidly executed, with playful dialogue that tempers Marron and O'Halloran's creepy art. As a story, though, there's nothing new under the soft, orange setting sun in Centipede #1, and given the potential of the game's simple premise, the debut issue of its comic counterpart disappoints.

    "Centipede" was a massively popular arcade game that captured the imagination of countless fans with its simple but quirky concept. After a debut issue that tries to layer the story with too much meaning and not enough "first-person-shooter" fun, it feels like a squandered opportunity. Read Full Review

    Geek-O-Rama - David Doub Aug 8, 2017

    All I can tell is honestly the writing comes across as incoherent and I have no interest in what happens to the lead character of where the plot goes at all. The art is fine and works well with this apocalyptic landscape but it's not enough for me to admire the art and ignore the confusing first issue. Read Full Review
