    A well scripted, emotional story supported by stunning art that captures the essence of early Ditko Spidey. Read Full Review

    Generations: Miles Morales Spider-Man & Peter Parker Spider-Man #1 is easily one of the best Generations comics. Brian Bendis and Ramon Perez did an excellent job making this meeting between Miles Morales and the college version of Peter Parker meaningful. After reading this issue I now want to see Miles interact with Peter much more in the present. If you are a Spider-Man fan this is a must read. Read Full Review

    That's not to say that this book is perfect, by any means. Miles kind of gets the short end of the story stick for this book - it's cute seeing young Miles meet young Ganke for the first time, but the scene outlasts its welcome, with Miles' own mother shooing off this teenager who is loitering around a bunch of small children way too long for his own good. Additionally, the decompression of Bendis's pacing is somewhat apparent - there isn't a ton of story that goes on here, but instead, this book feels more impressionistic, where Bendis uses every inch of page space to create mood rather than plot progression. But thankfully, he's teamed up with an artist who is so talented that he's able to turn this painterly script into a work of art, making Generations: Miles Morales and Peter Parker definitely a book to watch.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 27, 2017

    Generations: Spider-Man ranks among the more disappointing chapters of the series, as it fails to add much to the Peter/Miles dynamic even with the shift in time period. As with Spider-Men II, this story is at its best when Peter is absent from the picture entirely. But for anyone who fell in love with Ramon Perez's art on Amazing Spider-Man: Learning to Crawl, this issue is a must-read. Read Full Review

    I won't call this one of the better Generations entries, but it is a novel approach to bringing familiar characters together. Read Full Review

    It succeeds in places, and it's brilliant to see an older Miles interacting with Pete during his college years, but it seems to forego the fact that we've already seen the character own his identity since his initial introduction. Irrespective of whatever Spider-themed struggles he's currently experiencing, Miles is Spider-Man just as much Peter is - a trip through time shouldn't have to serve as a reminder of that.

    I am very torn on this issue of the Generations titles. While I loved the setting and the moment that Miles has been thrown into, I am not sure I liked the way it ended. Miles is thrown into the time when Peter lost to Doctor Octopus nearly dying while Aunt May was sick. It is an important time in the history of Spider-Man and a good time to insert Miles. He learns that while there are bad moments there are also good. We can't dwell on the bad, and should revel in the good. This works pretty well through most of the issue until Miles visits Peter at his home and the try to figure out together why Miles is there. Bendis tries to beat us over the head with themes. Since the two are friends as it is I expected them meeting for the first time to go off similar to before, but it seemed more forced. It was also strange for the story to end lingering on Peter as if he was learning something here as well. Since we know these moments do not actually happen, that felt strange. Overall it was a fun tale. The art was much like the Ms Marvels, a bit of a throw back to silver age looks. There is some humor and fun moments, but no team ups against a villain. Since right now Spider-Men II is giving us that I did not miss it much. For me this issue works, but is not a must have.

    In terms of story, this comic is kind of light and inconsequential. However, the artwork of Ramon Perez is absolutely breathtaking. Perez mimics the style of Steve Ditko for this issue set during Ditko's original run on "Amazing," to terrific results. This book is a treat just to look at.

    The idea is great. The art is wonderful and fits very well. The execution has a few hiccups. Fun read but if you throw some logic in there, this whole thing comes apart real fast. But it's comics, so fun wins every time.

    I really liked the art in this one. I am a huge Spider-Men fan so I enjoyed this book. It was one of the weaker Generations books, but still enjoyable. I just don't like Bendis flirting with the idea that Miles is giving up Spider-man. This issue only kind of reinforces that. I can't tell if at the end he is happy to now be in the legacy of Peter or if he was trying to say Peter should stick with being the only Spider-Man.

    Great art, but doing a time travel story with one character made in the 60's and another from the 10's was just a logistical nightmare.

    i started off interested but eventually I wasn't into the book near the end. I liked the classic look of the book from the art but its just not my favorite. ill give it a shot but it definitely needs to pick up the pace with the next issues.

    Ok this isn't bad. But that soooo Empty. It's funny to see Miles talking to himself (And even told himself that's not normal) for been more in the kind of spirit of the first spider man adventures. But that's said I don't that he magically happen to be in Peter Past as a child ... Fuck, they didn't calculated the age he would have had today. And there is not that much time between the two time Miles crash into Peter. And the end is very ... Bizarre ! I like the art even if I would have preferred more color. But that too is for making a point that we are in the past.
