    If the goal was to get me invested in "Dark Web," mission accomplished, and if the mission was to deliver one of my fave Marvel team-ups of the year? Well, looks like they knocked that out of the park too. Read Full Review

    If you want action and great callbacks to X-Men elements, Dark Web: X-Men #1 is a full-on blast. It leans into the wacky fun of demons assuming control of inanimate objects, features many superhero fight scene action, and promises significant revelations for key characters like Havok and Cyclops. As far as tie-in comics go, this issue is even better than the series launch! Read Full Review

    Dark Web: X-Men #1 is by far the best issue of the crossover so far thanks to its tight, economic storytelling paired with a grounding in well-cultivated continuity and character growth. Duggans script benefits from the splitting of the X-Men, allowing for Magik and Havok to play vital roles in the Goblin Queen's arc while Iceman and Firestar can reunite with Spider-Man for a solid action sequence. Reiss art and colors are perfectly matched for this crossover and its various elements, thanks to his work on New Mutants, illustrating demon-infused objects with the same care as the handling of Madelyne Pryors betrayal. This is a tie-in that is a must-read for both X-Men and Dark Web readers, reveling in the collaborative nature of serialized, shared-universe comics. Read Full Review

    The X-Men's descent into Limbo is just a hell of a lot of fun. It's beautifully illustrated, and incredibly silly in the best ways. Read Full Review
