    COMICON - Tony Thornley Aug 1, 2022

    A spotlight series for one of Marvel's most unlikable but long-lasting characters is a tough sale. The creative team not only succeeds but knocks it out of the park. This one promises to be a delight. Read Full Review

    Ant-man #1 is a pleasant surprise to kick off a 60th Anniversary celebration for the incredible shrinking hero. This first issue recreates the look, style, tone, plot, and dialog of a near-perfect Silver Age-style adventure. If you're in the mood for some nostalgic fun, look no further. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 27, 2022

    Ant-Man #1 is a fun romp through an earlier era in comics when moxie was everything, and the adventure of it all was the destination. It honors and celebrates the past while ever so slightly building towards something to look forward to in a trippy new miniseries. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Jul 27, 2022

    Overall, this was an astonishing book to open on with this new miniseries. With the sheer amount of love that Ant-Man has received since Scotts movie debut, maybe this book will be successful enough to launch a new set of Ant-based series in the future. Al Ewing, Tom Reilly, Jordie Bellaire and Cory Petit all seem to be having fun with this book and were glad to be along for the ride! Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Jul 27, 2022

    Ant-Man #1 is a fun story that kicks off the mini-series in an interesting way. It looks like future issues will be taking jaunts into Ant-Mans past also, so maybe well get an Ant-Man story that looks like it was drawn by George Perez or Gene Colan. I also look forward to learning more about this mysterious scientist from the future and what his intentions REALLY are. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Jul 27, 2022

    Time travel is a classic trope in superhero fiction; some would even call it a lazy crutch nowadays. So with this series employing it as its main plot thrust, it all comes down to the approach and the level of care put into various details that make it worth the price of admission. Read Full Review
