The two most famous clones ever are back to take what's theirs. Ben Reilly and Madelyne Pryor have had enough and are reigniting the INFERNO! Spider-Man and the X-Men are not ready for what's coming, and what role does Venom have in all of this? The sun is setting, dusk is approaching, and it's going to be a long night.

    This issue is a great way for non-Spider-Man readers to test the waters for the crossover and offers fans of Wells's non-Spidey works a place to jump on for this clone story. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 7, 2022

    Dark Web #1 is a solid start. While I was interested in the event, I'm now excited to see where it all goes with some unexpected directions and a nice focus on horror, the holidays, and the characters themselves. It packs a lot in and does an impressive job of balancing things. Even if you haven't been keeping up, this issue will get you what you need and get you pumped for what's to come. Read Full Review

    Jed comes back to the world of Black Cat & MJ Watson, as they find themselves hip deep in trouble as the effects of DarkWeb continues to spread throughout New York City like a virus, and its fricking hilarious. This time he brought Vincenzo Carrat along for the ride, and the duo just his triple 7s across the board. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 7, 2022

    Dark Web #1 kicks off what should be an exciting exploration of two broken clones who want to feel regular and respected again. I can't say the story is all that deep or that it probes its characters, but it certainly brings an unmistakably 1990s Marvel vibe. It also does the very '90s thing of bringing characters rarely together into one crossover, which is exciting as we will likely get unconventional moments and new twists and turns for our favorite characters. Dark Web is a fun escapist nightmare that thoroughly weaves in superhero theatrics. Read Full Review

    The jury is out on whether or not this idea has enough steam in it to sustain months of tie-ins, but it's not a bad start in the slightest. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Dec 8, 2022

    Dark Web #1 kicks off the supernatural event with new alliances, demonic attacks on NYC, and quickly spiraling chaos. The art is excellent, and there are a few interesting developments in this issue to hold your attention, but the villains' plan doesn't seem fully formed, and the collaboration between the villains doesn't make a lot of sense.

    This event kick-off is an interesting and pretty launch. Unfortunately, it has some faults in the storytelling that drag it down. Read Full Review
