Wasp was just trying to help Ant-Man get home to Earth to see his daughter...but a little problem got in the way.  Very little. Subatomic, in fact, as Scott Lang was lost in the vast spaces between atoms! Now, Nadia is his only hope of rescue...if only he would listen long enough for her to save them! From master storyteller Mark Waid (CAPTAIN AMERICA, CHAMPIONS) and Marvel Young Gun artist Javier Garrón (SECRET WARRIORS, STAR-LORD) comes a story of a big journey getting smaller all the time!

    Through his time in the Microverse, Scott encounters a species called the Thetacorians, and notices a "micro space vampire" of sorts that is hurting them. With the Wasps help, they are quickly able to help but not with out consequence. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 6, 2018

    I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this first issue. I never got into the Nadia/Wasp stories, but now I know I should double back and read them. Waid and Garron have crafted an excellent first issue due to the strong characters and their dynamic. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 7, 2018

    Ant-Man and the Wasp #1 is a delightful, fast-moving, and funny comic with two badly underused Marvel characters. The dialogue is solid, the concept is creative and strange, and the pacing keeps things engaging. Plus, Garron and Silva do excellent work on the art aspect of the book. Read Full Review

    All-in-all, this is a promising start to potentially one of the best Ant-Man and Wasp team-ups we've ever seen. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Alden Diaz Jun 6, 2018

    Overall, this is a solid start. Despite the one character thing with Scott that I really hope gets resolved, I think its a good #1 issue for this story and for these characters. I could easily see some fans not being sold on what feels like an ultimately inconsequential plot, but Im looking forward to the second issue. This mini feels like it's making the case for smaller, self contained adventures. You know, like the genre was built on. My biggest takeaway is that I came away liking a new character, and for a longtime Marvel fan, thats always a great surprise. If youre someone thats never tried out Pym Particles before and you want to give an Ant-Man story a try, pick up this issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Jun 11, 2018

    Despite some bits of really funny and witty dialogue I couldn't help but feel that the plot and artwork in this book just weren't clicking completely. What I would say is that a strength of the book is the interaction between Scott and Nadia who are a good combination, with Nadia's relative seriousness playing the perfect foil to Scott's wackiness. So, importantly, we have a good fit between the two core characters which leaves me optimistic for next issue. A sound enough opener. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 6, 2018

    With the duo headlining a movie next month, it's never been a better time for Marvel to launch a series starring Ant-Man and the Wasp, and given his deep knowledge of physics, it's a no-brainer to have someone like Mark Waid behind the wheel. And to that end, Waid and artist Javier Garron deliver the sweet science with Scott Lang and Nadia Van Dyne's latest team-up, even if the high-flying physics comes together a little bit faster than the titular characters.
