    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 5, 2020

    Dylan Burnett strikes the right tone with the art in this issue. Taking a cue from the lighter tone of the story and its comedic elements, Burnett crafts the art to be fun and exaggerated to emphasize the characters and the mood. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Feb 5, 2020

    This is an entertaining read from start to finish, using a self-deprecating stream of consciousness narration style that makes Ant-Man relatable as he pokes fun at his Silver Age roots and odd power set. Read Full Review

    GWW - Tad Desai Feb 5, 2020

    Overall, World Hive #1 sets its tone immediately with an action-packed opening and keeps consistent humor throughout that makes it an enjoyable read. Weaving in Scott Lang's insecurities about fighting crime with his daughter, cementing his place as a legitimate superhero and whether he can face new villains by himself is a great start for what looks to be a promising series.

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Feb 4, 2020

    A fun adventure that shows the struggling adventures of Scott Lang. If you're a fan of Ant-Man from the movies then this is the book for you, and if you're looking for a down-on-his-luck hero, give it a shot. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Feb 5, 2020

    Ant-Man #1 proves that good things come in small packages (that are also really big sometimes). There’s family bonding, fistfights, and a lot of fun. This story takes what’s great about the character, does it well, and adds its own quite interesting elements. Scott might be down on his luck, but he’s been known to rise to the occasion. This book not only has promise, but it could also be a defining story for “the guy who talks to bugs”. Read Full Review

    "Ant-Man #1" is a more than welcome (and worthy) return for Scott Lang Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Feb 5, 2020

    Ant-Mans status as a comical character means artists can play with his visual depiction more than the artists of, say, Avengers might have an opportunity to, which makes Dylan Burnetts zany art a perfect match for Wellss script. Its dynamic, cartoony, and accurately reflects the vibe Scott (and Ant-Man) represent. But hes not the only member of the art team putting in some solid, quality work here Mike Spicers colors are vibrant and varied, while letterer Cory Petit really breaks loose with his rendering of sound and dialogue.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Feb 5, 2020

    If you are on the fence about Ant-Man #1? Go for it! This first issue was entertainment value that you need in your pull-list. What are you going to lose having fun with the one hero who will show you more than most that the little guy shouldn't be overlooked? Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Feb 4, 2020

    Ant-Man #1 is a good start to the series, and one I will continue reading. The story, while just getting started, hit the right notes, and I liked the humor and family vibe throughout. Recommended to any Ant-Man fans out there (movie or comics), but I'm here for Stinger! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Feb 5, 2020

    The issue is a lot of fun to read. The dialogue is clean and crisp and will have you chuckling throughout the issue. The art is fantastic as well. Burnett's energetic animated style and Spicer's wonderful colors does not disappoint visually. For me, though there is just something missing from Ant-Man #1. Something in the story that really grabs you and gets you invested in Scott Lang's adventure? Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 4, 2020

    The comic is a fun one as expected. Ant-Man #1 has enough unique jokes and takes that makes it stand out as well. There's been so many different volumes and a lot of ground covered but this debut also feels unique in a few ways. It's still able to deliver something new to readers. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 5, 2020

    While it takes a bit for the team to start firing on all cylinders, there's a lot to appreciate about Ant-Man #1. Even though there's certainly some narrative fat readers have to chew through at first, once the exposition is over, there's a great sense of humor - and even more beautiful artwork - to enjoy. This might not be a book that blows up the sales charts -heck, it might not even be Scott Lang's most standout adventure - but there's definitely enough to warrant checking out a second issue.

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Feb 12, 2020
