    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Apr 3, 2019

    Marvel Team-up #1 is wonderful. It contains some of the best art at Marvel right now, which is amplified by the flip-book format. The occasional eye-rolling dialogue aside, the writing is very strong, and puts its faith in the artist to make it sing. This is the kind of book that reminds us why we love superheroes and comic books in the first place. Read Full Review

    A fun and light reading experience that honors the flip comic style and does a great job with each character. A charming feel-good story with hardly a dull moment. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Awesome Fox May 7, 2019

    A solid entry into the Marvel Team-Up series, it is interesting to see a long standing quipmeister like Spider-Man connect with a newer superhero, particularly one so young who is dealing with issues both similar and dissimilar to himself when he first started webslinging his way through New York City. While the narrative device may be old, the narrative itself doesn't feel contrived, and sets up an interesting dynamic going forward. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Apr 4, 2019

    Marvel Team-Up #1 is a solid reintroduction to a classic concept with a twist and a solid story with strong art on its own terms. While it's unlikely to hold onto a steady readership (a continual problem with series based around rotating casts) this first issue is riveting and is sure to appeal to fans of both Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel. Hopefully the high level of quality will continue as the team-ups and creative teams change. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Apr 5, 2019

    It's a well-tailored exploration of two feature superheroes sharing a call to action, then finding symmetry in coordinating their efforts. Meanwhile, we're treated to vicarious shares of what's going on behind those masks, and that makes for a smart and superlative brand of team-up. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Oscar Maltby Apr 3, 2019

    Marvel Team-Up #1 (or #187 for those who prefer legacy numbering) is an accomplished and confident rebirth of a classic format. Although its flip-book format is much more seamless than it should be, it ultimately hampers the amount of story that can feasibly fit into a single issue; offering only the briefest of tales. Even so, Eve L. Ewing’s intriguing flourishes of characterization make for a thought provoking read, whilst the artistic duo of Joey Vazquez and Felipe Sobreiro offer up a real feast for the eyes. Marvel Team-Up #1 is a worthy pick-up. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 6, 2019

    Marvel Team-Up #1 is a fun start to this new series. Eve L. Ewing and Joey Vazquez did a great job capturing what makes Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel engaging superheroes. I recommend Marvel Universe fans to pick up Marvel Team-Up #1 . Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Apr 12, 2019

    Marvel Team-Up #1 attempts to explore the exuberance of youth through the lens of an older Peter Parker and an ever-vibrant Kamala Khan, but ultimately relies a little too much on heavily used tropes to push the story forward. There is potential for something great, but it simply isn't developed enough yet. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S Lodi Apr 5, 2019

    Despite some inspiring structural choices, "Marvel Team-Up" #1 runs the risk of becoming lost on today's market, by not connecting with the audience with anything out of the ordinary. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Connor Casey Apr 3, 2019

    While it makes for a bit of an awkward experience if you're reading digitally, writer Eve L. Ewing clearly has fun with the dual-sided perspective in the opening issue of the returning Marvel Team-Up, which sees Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel join forces to take on The Jackal. Read Full Review

    I am a really big Kamala fan. Ever since she came on the scene I loved her optimism and energy. I picked up this issue for that reason alone. I was not excited about the flip book concept. I was a bit unsure about seeing Kamala team up with Peter again. The team-up in Amazing Spider-Man was fun but the two are so similar that it was a little forgettable. I had low expectations for the book going in. After having read it I was excited at the possibilities going forward for Ms. Marvel team-ups. What I thought was a gimmick in layout worked really well for the story being told. Ewing used the format to highlight the two characters mindsets going into the same conflict. The conversations foreshadowed the cliffhanger really hard, but in a way th more

    Fate brings Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel together and pits them against a classic team-up situation. The "two parallel stories" gimmick is nicely executed, with each track satisfying on its own and combining into an even better whole. Character work on the two leads is quietly encouraging, building a recognizable base while also ramping up for the theme of the story.

    This was fine. Some stuff felt a little odd. Like how this type of tech isn't exactly new to Spider-Man, see: Superior Spider-Man. Or why Jackal is alive after being killed in Clone Conspiracy. I'm not exactly on board with it yet.

    Almost a little too set up for me, but perfectly fine.
