Peter Parker finds himself at the middle of the biggest, most wide-ranging adventure he's ever had and out of the gate it has turned him into a SAVAGE BEAST! Forget everything you know about Spider-Man. All rules and regulations are out the door and Peter Parker may never be the same!

    So if anyone wants to argue this story has a lack of brains, aside from the giant brain the antagonist s are attempting to weaponize in the tale, the island both Spidey and Zemo are stuck on also serve as a slick metaphor, except to point out that this story is occurring in it's own little slice of the Marvel Universe. Maybe the "Savage" Universe ? Because Kelly has picked up right where Duggan left off with "Savage Avengers", solidifying the "Savage" tag line. How, when these comics are not exactly related? By guaranteeing anything with "Savage" in it's name premium entertainment according to the Marvel U. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Feb 2, 2022

    Fast, and frenetic pace, Kelly relies too heavily on the fact that you read Non-Stop Spider-Man before it was cancelled to understand why Peters mutated, why Zemos there, and what the creepy kids are doing back home. Sandoval puts in the work here, and its fun to see how much hes progressed from the beginning of his career to where he is now. Read Full Review

    THE DISPATCHJoe Kelly is back Spider-Fans with an all-new series that directly follows his NON-STOP SPIDER-MAN run placing one SAVAGE SPIDER-MAN loose on the Isle of the Damned. However, this island doesnt just have a SAVAGE SPIDER-MAN gone wild, it also has Baron Zemo and dozens of Frankensteined, Zombie-like creatures on the hunt. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 31, 2022

    Savage Spider-Man #1is mostly carried by its concept and artwork, as it continues the story threads laid down inNon-Stop Spider-Man. I highly recommend readingNon-Stop Spider-Man before picking up this book, or if you're into horror just pick it up from the get-go and enjoy the artwork. Hopefully, future issues will continue to flesh out the story and explore the horror-themed aspects of its story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 31, 2022

    As an art showpiece, Savage Spider-Man #1 is an entertaining read, but it doesn't do enough to hook the reader in as far as character or story. Something is going on so it's not simply a blind action fight comic, but we'll need to wait till issue #2 to get some reasonable answers. If you're looking for exciting art and a bonafide savage Spider-Man, you'll dig this. Read Full Review

    This faux reboot of Non-Stop Spider-Man picks up exactly where that series left off, and doesn't really do much to propel the story forward. Read Full Review

    At the end of Non-Stop, Peter was injected with A+, and instead of getting smart, he turned into a monstrosity! Hes a Man-Spider now and its disgusting, but not in a fun way. He and Baron Zemo are stuck on the Island of Misfit Monsters and while Zemo talks trash, Spider-Man is feral and goingSAVAGE!!! We do see the bad guys behind it all and their hateful plan, but the only thing worth seeing is Rafa Sandovals art. Sure, I like this issue more than most of Non-Stop, but that is a low bar right there! Read Full Review
