Starring Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus, Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales, Spider-Woman, the Spider-Man from the anticipated video game and, well, every Spider-Man and Spider-Woman ever, including some brand-new ones!

    Comicsverse - Ronnie Gorham Oct 11, 2018

    SPIDER-GEDDON has a pretty interesting plot -- any excuse to put a bunch of Spider-Men in one book is okay with me. The villains feel a bit plain but maybe they'll have a few tricks up their sleeves. I have high hopes that this sequel will deliver a solid story that most readers will enjoy. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Forrest Hollingsworth Oct 10, 2018

    Spider-Geddon's first issue makes the positioning and mixed successes of all its prequel issues feel mostly worth it with a fun, dynamic, and somewhat flighty debut that promises seemingly spectacular things to come. Read Full Review

    I had high expectations for this first issue and it exceeds them. Just a fun event that I can't wait to see where it goes. Damn near perfection. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 10, 2018

    Spider-Geddon is a book that isn't afraid or ashamed of what it is " instead, it reaches to be the best popcorn adventure story it can possibly be, and if this debut is any indication, it might very well succeed. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Chris Aiken Oct 11, 2018

    For any fans of Spider-Verse, just wait until the end of the issue. Gage goes for the jugular and makes a statement about the consequences of Otto's mistake. The Inheritor's return means serious business for our Spider-Friends and this introduction to Spider-Geddon makes sure to let everyone know that no one is safe. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Kyle Simcox Oct 11, 2018

    The important issues leading up to this event are “The Superior Octopus” and “Spider-geddon #0”, so if you skipped those two then it may feel a little rushed, especially where Doc Ock is concerned. However, the first issue of Spider-geddon is a fast paced and brutal start to the event as for the Marvel universe and it's Spider-Men? They're going to be in for quite a fight and more of them are undoubtedly going to die. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Oct 24, 2018

    If youre a Spider-fan, youve already picked this book up. While Spidergeddon #1 isnt the best Spider-Man single issue ever printed, it opens up the door for what looks to be an interesting and solid event story. Indeed, if its half as entertaining as Spider-Verse was, then itll be better than any main Marvel event released in the last few years. Read Full Review

    An enjoyable, yet flawed and underwhelming start to Marvel's big Spider-Event. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Oct 10, 2018

    So far, I think I like this more than Spider-Verse. The first issue gets the ball rolling quickly, so it feels very much worth your time and money. Spider-Gwen fans like myself may be disappointed, but everyone else is in character. Molina and Curiel craft an exciting, fun world in a time of serious potential for tragedy. If you’re a fan of Spider-Verse, check it out. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Oct 10, 2018

    Spider-Geddon gets started in the right way, with an emphasis on fun. What could've easily been a cheap sequel nobody needed will end up being a joyride through the multiverse of Spider-People. It's a good time to be a fan of any Spider-Man (except Noir and UK). Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Oct 16, 2018

    Like a big, visually exciting summer blockbuster, it gets your attention. Holding it by keeping the plotline fresh is going to be predominantly the responsibility of Christos Gage. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Stephen Gustafson Oct 18, 2018

    This issue felt less of a #1 and more like a continuation. No real new ground was broken and it feels safe, almost like they are trying to draw out the success of the last series. The only thing is the luster is lost. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 10, 2018

    Spider-Geddon #1 is a competent follow-up to Spider-Verse, but it doesn't do anything new with the formula. Read Full Review

    Epicstream - Jake Vyper Oct 17, 2018

    Overall, Spider-Geddon #1 is a disappointing start. It's fascinating to see its massive cast of characters come together again but this chapter doesn't do much to give all of them a chance to shine individually and show what they can do as a team. Spider-Geddon #0 had more character development but things can still turn around in the next issue if Spider-Geddon finds a way to take this epic war into new directions.  Read Full Review

    This is aggressively mandated corporate-owned comics that don't care if you are having a good time. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Oct 10, 2018

    One element absent from that feature is the Inheritors, and this issue makes it clear why that is. Even when their complex history is succinctly explained, they remain visual non-entities, dragging down every colorful page they enter. What is far worse is how they replace excitement with cringes and confuse random death with stakes. Read Full Review
