    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 30, 2019

    The first issue of the series gives Spider-Hams world a solidly compelling reality about it that establishes the character really well. With Peter Porker now entering the mainstream Marvel Universe for at least the next issue, the creative team is going to have to switch gears. Though the character originated almost exclusively in his own world, mainstream contemporary audiences are far more familiar with Spider-Ham in a world of humans. Wells and Robson are going to have to come up with a fresh angle on the team-up to maintain audiences as the mini-series continues. This first issue is an auspicious start to a potentially clever new mini-series. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Dec 25, 2019

    Peter Porker is the Spectacular Spider-Ham, and also a bit of a jerk. That's why his fellow heroes of Larval Earth are aghast when he ganks the job of saving it from a multiversal threat, but the creators easily get us rooting for the swine. They bring Spider-Ham, and his whole world, to life with clean, endearing art and a smart all-ages script. Spider-Ham #1 is a rewarding read in itself and a strong inducement to follow the whole series. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Forrest C. Helvie Dec 23, 2019

    Overall, the issue provides a solid entry point into the world of Spider-Ham. Whether fans of the film or the previous comic books, readers will get to know this hammy hero and see him prepare for yet another inter-dimensional adventure. Wells sets up enough pieces here to cue us into where we will be going next and who we can expect to see come issue #2. Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham #1 proves to be an excellent comic for those younger readers out there looking for a bright, action-and-fun-filled adventure with just enough dry wit that parents will equally enjoy.

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Dec 23, 2019

    Spider-Ham deserves his own comic and a more relevant role. So, if this it were it starts, I am fine with it. Peter Porker The Spectacular Spider-Ham #1 is a bit of a reminder that Spider-ham has his own universe, and it feels more like a roster call that a narrative so far. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 24, 2019

    Pick this one up for a few eye-rolling laughs and the start of what could be a hilarious adventure. As it stands Spider-Ham is set up well for an adventure that'll involve Spider-Man and while it's not the most complex reads it's still entertaining enough. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 14, 2020

    Peter Poker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham #1 ends with the egotist taking the place of the other heroes and jumping universes to hunt down a villain across space and time. His first stop, apparently, is Mary Jane's bedroom? Worth a look. Read Full Review
