    I was pleasantly surprised by Spider-Man 2099: Exodus, from story to execution, so I have high hopes for Orlando's creative approach being applied to a symbiote-centric story. The dynamic duo of Justin Mason and Jordan Boyd work perfectly to bring the dramatic gritty future world to life with style. Read Full Review

    Knowing it will be a team effort to defeat Carnage 2099, Spider-Man 2099: Dark Genesis #1 establishes many key characters and the villain for what will be an epic month-long story arc. Since it's not a Spider-Man 2099 solo story, it feels bigger, exciting, and a maximum 2099 extravaganza. Read Full Review

    Steve Orlando already did more than enough to prove he's got a great vision for the 2099 world of Miguel O'Hara, and this latest adventure is just further confirmation that he's the writer for the job. Read Full Review

    With more focus, Orlando could potentially turn his love for 2099 into something a little more organized, exciting, and better written. Bringing in more 2099 versions of fan favorite characters is a promising reason to keep reading. Read Full Review

    Spider-Man 2099: Dark Genesis #1 starts a new adventure for the hero of tomorrow when social/class strife leads to violent protests, and a new Carnage emerges to become the weapon of revenge for the people. The art is solid, and the technical aspects of the writing are good, but the story gets painfully heavy-handed with social commentary. Read Full Review

    It's hard these days with a writer like Orlando to tell if they are telling a story and their ideologies just happen to be a part of it or it's all preaching with the story as a vehicle for their propaganda. I'm undecided with this comic. Either way, this book is just meh...like a lot of his stuff. If you love his 2099 stuff then you will be happy, but if your a fan of the 90's style then I'd advise you to stay away.
