    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 8, 2021

    Do not pass on Non-Stop Spider-Man #1. It's so abundantly good, and a shock to the system on top of the addictive chaos of the book itself. Non-Stop Spider-Man is edge of your seat high-octane stuff if your seat were teetering on the front of a rocket. Read Full Review

    As we go on though it didn't bother me as much…for the most part. Just seemed a bit odd that in a visual medium the whole page isn't used. It certainly gives this book a distinct look though. We'll see going forward if this changes, still bothers me… or not. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Mar 8, 2021

    This is a really enjoyable book that I think you'll have a lot of fun reading. It's not all adrenaline and humor, though. Kelly throws in some seriousness just to make it a little extra meaty. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 10, 2021

    Non-Stop Spider-Man #1 feels like non-stop action. It's a solid debut that visually stands out. There's nothing (that I know of) that's on the comic stand that looks like it. Its use of angled panels, really angled pages, is unique and memorable. It exudes enthusiasm and energy about it that fits Spider-Man. You might eye-roll at yet another Spider-Man comic on the shelf, but when it's this good, it's worth it and the wait. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Mar 8, 2021

    Non-Stop Spider-Man #1 is a jolt of adrenaline in comic book form, placing the friendly neighborhood web-slinger into the middle of an action film. Spidey fans and action fans should pick it up if they like their comics fast and furious (to quote another famous action film franchise.) Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Mar 10, 2021

    Non-Stop Spider-Man is, as promised, action-packed. But contrary to expectations, it's not a fast read -- and it's all the better for it. The sheer density of information hurled at the reader demands thoughtful attention. There's a compelling mystery lurking just beneath the high-octane combat panels, and the creators strike an excellent balance between immediate action and a slowly-unfolding big-picture plot.

    Geek'd Out - Gregory Brothers Mar 10, 2021

    Despite some small pitfalls Non-Stop Spider-Man #1, reads like a comic by a veteran team that knows exactly what they are doing. The end of the issue leaves us with a cliffhanger and introduces us to the first big bad. Fans of Spider-Man will feel as if they have just slipped back into a classic storyline that still manages to be relevant. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Mar 8, 2021

    In all reality, the parts of the issue I loved the most were the flashbacks before the non-stop action. Those scenes had the most clarity and simply made the most sense. Sometimes, too much of a good thing can be bad for you like cheese fries or colonoscopies. I think that may be the case with this concept steeped inside NON-STOP SPIDER-MAN this week. Kelly and Bachalos concept seems intriguing at first. Yet, the issue is cluttered, confusing, and lacks a driving plot or any real character development. Truthfully, I thought Id get a bit more within this issue. That said, Im not out on the series just yet. One single issue is hard to stake your claim on the entire series. So, Im in for NON-STOP SPIDER-MAN #2… for now. Nevertheless, the leash is much smaller than it was before. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God bless! Read Full Review

    COMICON - James Ferguson Mar 16, 2021

    All-out action with some super dynamic panel layouts await in this new Spider-Man comic, however the lack of character development of the supporting cast removes most of the stakes. Coupled with some inconsistent artwork and there are some hold ups for what the book can become. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Mar 8, 2021

    There are two ways to look at this book. On one hand, this isn't my type of affair in any shape way or form. Loudness and chaos are the watch words, detracting a little from everything that makes Spidey, well, Spidey. On the other hand, this book is exactly what it is advertised as; a fast paced big fight told by a couple of the industries most competent storytellers. Read Full Review

    As always, it's a pain to navigate through Bachalo's art, doesn't help that the panels and dialogue were all placed diagonally which makes it all the more uncomfortable to read. The plot itself wasn't interesting, which is weird considering Joe Kelly is great. The backstory with Zemo was miles better.

    This was a fun book! I dug Chris Bachalo's artwork and layouts in this book even though it can get a bit chaotic at times. Marvel wasn't kidding with the marketing. This book is visually unlike anything I've seen in a Spider-Man comic before. I'm digging the plot Joe Kelly set up in this issue and the backup story but there were a few bits of dialogue that were a bit off. One or two lines that Spidey says are something that I would say (and I am not Peter Parker). Nonetheless, it was a great start to this run and I'm looking forward to the next issue!

    Side note: Your enjoyment of the series will depend on how much you like Chris Bachalo's artwork.

    I do not know, it was a lot of action but I felt it somewhat empty of content, not to which we have been accustomed. I like myself but I don't fall in love

    It's always a pleasure to see Bachalo's art, and combined with Kelly's great writing, it's a fantastic combo. You can definitely see why this book was called 'Non-Stop' straight from the first pages. The backup made me excited about the things to come on this book.

    The action starts in media res as a designer drug problem at ESU pits Spidey against some particularly well-armed goons. The storytelling delivers on the "fast action" mandate, but I think the creators do a good enough job salting in plot developments to keep it from feeling mindless. Not a great story yet, but definitely a good one.

    It was a bit chaotic but it grew on me as the story progressed. I can't say I liked the start.
    The artwork needs to slow it's roll. There were a few nice pages but man some of it is, it's too much, hard to make out things. I liked the last villain part. I'll pick up the next issue.

    Joe Kelly is much better at Spider-Man than he ever was with Superman, but this is not one of his better works. This isn't the thrill fest they'd have you believe, but there is a lot of action. This is reminiscent of the 2000s Spider-Man stories that could never get me to stay regularly. Like the last Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man series, I think I'll pass on this as a regular and only pick up an occasional issue. If you like it, by all means keep getting it. As for me, I'm just goona stick with good ol' Amazing.

    Back when I started reasing ASM 12 years ago, I really liked Bachalo's art and Kelly's Grim Hunt.

    But this? It feels hard to say what I think about it. It feels a bit messy? The innder dialogue for Spidey felt a bit off.

    Itäs not bad by any means. But not particulary good either.

    Spidey gets all the cute chicks, right? The love interest in this is drawn dope, but everything else looks as rushed as the title of this series. Is there a way Bagley can get back here ? Seems like he & Land seem to be the only people with common sense that can draw the web-slinger.
    And hearing an ex-CEO get jealous over a foreign conveyance - Parker can save that, for real.
    This is leagues ahead of the ASM issue that came out this week, but it just cant carry the weight of the recent Spidey mini-series penned by the Abrams'.
    Just knowing this was inspired by the film series Crank , throws me back to my childhood and encourages me to maybe pick up another issue , but I need Peter to grow up. I need "Life Story" , somethin more

    I like the part with Zemo, very violent. And it should also be noted that they promisse of being an action tale is kept. But the art is not beautiful, especially the faces. The plot is also bland.
