Spider-Punk is back and better than ever. After SPIDER-VERSE, Hobie Brown was a Web Warrior, but that didn't mean things back in his universe were solved. The writer of the SPIDER-PUNK story in SPIDER-VERSE is back and joined by VENOM'S Gerardo Sandoval! Spider-Punk's Earth is under attack both on the ground and from space, meaning his responsibility seems to outweigh his power. Don't miss this first shot of the SPIDER-EVENT of 2018!

    This is an issue where the details add up together into a package that's near perfect. I enjoyed Spider-Verse but there's an energy about this issue that has me beyond excited for its event sequel. Hopefully we get more of this and hopefully we get to revisit Earth-138 sooner than later. Read Full Review

    EDGE OF SPIDER-GEDDON #1 is a fun introduction to the upcoming SPIDER-GEDDON Event series. It does face some plot issues, but overall, this is a fast-paced, action heavy good time with fantastic art by Gerardo Sandoval Read Full Review

    The sequel to Edge of Spider-Verse is shaping up to be just as much fun on an issue-by-issue basis as its presentation of a punk Spider-Man's world offers up plenty of new takes on characters. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Callum Riley Aug 18, 2018

    A brilliant story and some great art leaves me feeling good about how Spider-Geddon is going to go down. Fleshing out Spider-Punk's (sorry) home universe feels natural and hilarious, even if we don't see much more of Hobie's character.Spider-Punk ongoing series when? Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Aug 20, 2018

    Overall the start to this 'Edge of Spider-Geddon' series was just a story about a day in the life of Spider-Punk on Earth-138 than about truly revealing any information about Spider-Geddon. If you're okay with that you'll most likely find some enjoyment out of this title that mixes punk culture tropes with a Spider-Man twist. I had some fun revisiting Spider-Punk enough to take a peek at the title but milage may vary. Read Full Review

    A fun and energetic one-shot that gives us plenty of that alternate Spider action we've been craving. Punk gone global meets the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Without having said much, the comic gives a lot to talk about, but the comic also doesn't seem particularly interested in making statements. It just wants to get Hobie to a portal. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Aug 15, 2018

    Spider-Doom preludes have never been actual preludes. They’ve never been actually necessary to understand what’s happening when the main event kicks off. Whether or not I can recommend this book to you depends on how interested you already are in the main character or how the writing makes it entertaining regardless. Unfortunately, I can’t say that it does the latter well enough to justify adding it to your stack this week, but if you’re a fan of Hobie, I say go for it. Read Full Review

    An entirely skippable affair due to a lackluster conflict and boring characters. Read Full Review
