    Pastrami Nation - Nolan Smith Oct 18, 2015

    With all those new #1 issues coming out, I know it can be hard to pick which ones deserve your hard earned cash: take my word for it, Spider-Man 2099 #1 is worth every penny. We have seen that, in the past few years, you can have a different Spider-Man and still have a fun and successful book. This just embodies that idea. Read Full Review

    SIDE NOTE: Miguel's new suithas yet to be seen, but Peterdid offer to upgrade his threads, but the recently “retired” hero turned him down. Miguel suggested he “give it to Miles [Morales]),” which is an understandable reaction from a guywho feels like he's not needed. However, after the events of this issue, we'll no doubt we seeing it very,very soon. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Jul 13, 2016

    It's a story that whilst is light of superhero antics, is brilliant on character development. It just shows that you can write a brilliant superhero story without having the characters suit up every five seconds. Don't miss out on Miguel O'Hara in Spider-Man 2099#1. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Dec 11, 2019

    Carlos' art makes this world come to life brilliantly with awesome visuals. This first issue dealt mainly with the technology and scope of the world, but hopefully the action will heat up and utilize these impressive environments. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Kyle Chrise Oct 20, 2015

    Spider-Man 2099 #1 makes all the right moves for a series opener. A well-defined lead character, fast-paced and smart world building, and stakes that matter on a number of levels. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kenneth Bowden Dec 19, 2019

    Spider-Man 2099 #1 (Spencer, Ze'Carlos) So lack of Bogdanovic art aside the issue does the job it sets out to do just fine, introduces the future (and best) Spider-Man to a new generation while also planting some new seeds in this whole 2099 Alpha/Omega event. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Justin Wright Oct 17, 2015

    William Sliney is finally starting to get a hold out how to draw Miguel in action. He will still probably never fill the shoes of Rick Leonardi (variant cover above) though. In my opinion, his style for the character and ability to successfully express a full range of facial emotions is superb. The backgrounds look especially nice, and each change in setting starts after a page turn, which allows for a smooth flow of the story. All in all though, I liked it quite a bit. I will definitely be picking up the next issue. Then again, that wasn't really in question. till next time, happy reading! Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 16, 2015

    The sin of our title hero not wearing the costume adorning the cover isn't the worst thing you'll see in comics this week. This issue establishes the status quo of the hero, his personality, his goals and a villain with some devilish intentions. Check this out to get started on another David/Sliney ride!

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Oct 15, 2015

    Spider-Man 2099 #1 may not reinvent the wheel, but for fans it'll be an enjoyable new era for the character, while new readers won't be confused and should be able to jump on board with no confusion. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Forrest C. Helvie Dec 13, 2019

    Overall, this issue does a fine job of setting the stage for who this Spider-Man is, as well as giving readers a feel for the world of 2099, even if we don't get as much time with the main attraction as we might otherwise like. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Oct 19, 2015

    The basic premise of Spider-Man 2099, in which the hero must fix the future and return home, is a tried-and-true formula that remains compelling. David's final pages may have been telegraphed earlier in the issue, but nevertheless offer the impact and impetus Miguel needs to go forward into a intriguing arc. However, the technical skill and superficial enjoyment aside, it still leaves the book with the self-identified problem of being yet another spider on a familiar web, and this setting can only last for so long.

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Dec 17, 2019

    Of course, we have our featured protagonist, Miguel O'Hara who's a rising star at Alchemax where they are helping to rid the world of disease and poverty. But as most of these allegedly forward thinking companies go, they're into some cruel and grueling stuff, and after seeing some mutations in the part of the world no one cares for anymore, things are about to change for Miguel, very drastically and very swiftly.

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Dec 11, 2019

    At the end of the day, Spider-Man 2099 #1 is a good comic. Unfortunately, it won’t be greeted as well by readers because of its tie-in nature. This is most definitely a single chapter of a greater story, and how much you enjoy this depends on whether or not you’re up for that. It’s a good character-focused issue with solid art. Just know what you’re getting into before you buy. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 15, 2015

    The finale sets up a dynamic second issue, but this first issue lacks the pizzazz a debut needs to grab readers' attention and lock it in. "Spider-Man 2099" #1 gives the futuristic wallcrawler a vague threat to face down, a clichd entry point into a new life and an uninspiring introduction. This feels less like a #1 and more in line with something you'd see for a #0 or an anthology appearance. David and Sliney have their work cut out for them to hook readers in the second issue, but second impressions don't usually carry the same weight. Read Full Review
