    Larsen has a great visual style and that style works beautifully with this story and its characters. A great looking issue filled with great imagery. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 20, 2021

     Silver Age-style heroism still works in Larsens hands, but itll be interesting to see where Larsen takes it this time. Its kind of weird seeing something done in the format of an old comic that wouldnt have looked out of place decades ago that has the occasional flash of a modern comic. (The stars in the night sky in the first couple of pages are kind of disorienting. As is the rich sheen that Larsen has managed to render on the surface of the heros costume.) The ground that hes covering here with Ant has been so heavily covered in the course of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. An origin story is all well and good, but its going to be challenging to keep moving with it if he doesnt find some way to inject new life into an old superhero format.  Read Full Review

    Ant #1 presented a good well written story but didn't get me invested into the plot. Read Full Review

    Reinventing the character, Larsen keeps the core of the original origin, but updates it for new readers and sets the stage for a new take on the character. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Gregory Brothers Oct 20, 2021

    Overall,Ant #1 feels like it is stuck a few decades in the past where the concept was first hatched. The lack of depth in storytelling and flat art screams of a creator with far less experience than someone of Erik Larsens caliber. For now, it is better to skip the series. Read Full Review
