    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt May 10, 2010

    It's rare that such an obviously commercial book achieves such a high creative standard, and perhaps a book like "Astonishing Spider-Man/Wolverine" is the perfect antidote to all the Secret Invasions and Sieges Marvel readers have endured recently. Finally, a story that exists for its own sake, told by the best creators around. You can't ask for more. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips May 5, 2010

    The two make for a phenomenal team. If you liked Aaron's work in the Dark Reign- The List one-shot, you'll devour it here. Once again, he's proven to be just as comfortable with insane, high-concept-driven plots as he his hard-boiled ones. Pairing him with an artist as talented as Kubert on a vehicle that allows him to show that different side to his writing, on a book that stars Marvel's two most popular characters, was a masterstroke on the publisher's part. Let's reward them by making this series the best-seller it deserves to be. Read Full Review

    So we have the beginnings of an unusual tale here - time will tell if it's a good story. But my, doesn't the art look fine. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin May 9, 2010

    Astonishing Spider-Man/Wolverine #1 was an absolute blast to read. Aaron and Kubert combine to deliver one fun comic book that promises eve more crazy adventures for our heroes in following issues. Aaron is a natural at writing both Spider-Man and Wolverine and Kubert expertly brings the story to life with his artwork. I cant wait to see what this creative team has in store for us next. If you didnt pick up Astonishing Spider-Man/Wolverine #1 I highly recommend you do because this was one fun comic book that you should not miss out on reading. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli May 8, 2010

    This issue provides about twenty-five pages of story and a bunch of pin ups for $4. You get top-notch artwork and some great character work from Aaron. The story is a good science-fiction romp but does it fit in with the characters? I suppose it could, but it is very hard to see someone picking this up that aren't targeting the creators or characters. However, I'm willing to guess that if someone does sample this issue that they will thoroughly enjoy the story. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Paul Steven Brown May 7, 2010

    I can understand the desire by Marvel Comics to produce an easily accessible comic book such as Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine. The "Astonishing" model seems more suited for solo or team-up books rather than team books with tight continuity. This is a fun book and the creative work is top-notch. I just hope that this book will be able to come out when scheduled and not be plagued with delays like its predecessor, Astonishing X-Men. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Scott Hunter May 9, 2010

    This book features a wrap-around cover, showing Spider-man web-slinging his way between some skyscrapers whilst Wolverine seems to be pouncing on him. This cover is drawn well-enough "" despite Wolverine's expression being a bit over-the-top "" and the more I look at it the more I enjoy it. It may, on fist glance, appear to be a rather generic shot of the pair traveling together (at least, that's what I thought at first), but on closer inspection one sees that they are, in fact, about to fight and thus it highlights the animosity between the two, whilst also suggesting that this is not another run-of-the-mill team-up story. On the other hand, it doesn't reveal much about the contents of the book, nor is it particularly eye-catching on that first glance. But then perhaps it's not meant to be - I think it's a subtle cover, and one that works well.Negative Comets Aside Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Robert Tacopina May 10, 2010

    This was a title that I picked up on a whim based on the creators attached to it. I didnt expect too much out of it but was pleasantly surprised to find that there was actually substance to be had within. Witty inner monologue and the promise of a dastardly plot against our heroes have me definitely coming back for more when issue two drops. Read Full Review
