    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Corey Patterson Dec 11, 2019

    This issue is the perfect set up story for the Marvel 2099 event. Telling a new story of a beloved character while keeping it in continuity with comic canon appears is a daunting task, but SPIDER-MAN 2099 #1 seems like it's perfectly suited for the task. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Dec 29, 2019

    With the book ending with a to be continued in 2099 Omega rather than a The End, this is where the plot is found at for our 2099 experience rather than a one-shot tale about the hero. However, its not enough to make this book as enjoyable as a stand-alone experience like the other books. Unless youre heavily invested in this series, you may want to wait for the trade or pick up 2099 Omega with it. Read Full Review

    Rogues Portal - Nico Sprezzatura Dec 11, 2019

    There's nothing wrong with Spencer's script, strictly speaking, but it probably could have done with a few more edits and clarification. Read Full Review

    Nick Spencer gives us the big book of this 2099 "event" and it's a bore to read and a chore to finish. There is no reason to read this and instead, I suggest you go back and read the far superior original. Read Full Review

    I liked this a lot. It definitely makes more sense if you've been keeping up with the other 2099 books and Amazing Spider-Man. Some people just jumping in for this issue because it's Spider-Man 2099 will be lost and probably won't enjoy it. But I am not one of those people, so I'm here to see where it all leads.

    I don't think Marvel's new "let's do events without an event miniseries, just character tie-ins" experiment is working out. Neither 2099 nor Annihilation Scourge are headed toward hall of fame territory. Even the better issues -- and this is one of them, I think -- are undercut by the certainty that the finale cannot possibly provide satisfying closure.

    This is not that good. As a first issue to a new series it would be, but as a standalone issue? It is pretty meh. At best

    I know a lot about Miguel O'Hara but this seemed just so off and hard to follow. And the worst of all, pointless. Like why should I care?

    Art was nice, even though Miguel and Gabe look exactly the same and I don't remember them looking in the original series?

    But, read Volumes 1-3 if you are a fan. This one doesn't seem to be important, as it is more backstory for Nueva York than Miguel. And doesn't seem to have a tie-in to ASM -run, even though we have the same writer.
