    AIPT - David Brooke May 2, 2022

    Spider-Man 2099: Exodus is cool as hell and this is a must-buy for anyone even faintly familiar with the future version of Spider-Man. It'll bring you a bold, bright, loud, techno-future experience with a rad Ghost Rider too. This issue in particular seems to blend a lot of cool, culturally significant sci-fi like Tronand Blade Runner. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez May 4, 2022

    Spider-Man 2099: Alpha Exodus #1 is a fun, energetic, and wholly imaginative return for the character. The character designs are creepy, the setting feels futuristic in an unrestrained way, and the Cabal's plan feels like a high-stakes threat. That said, the minor letdown is the last page reveal of the Cabal's leader which is much too predictable in an otherwise fresh return for the titular character. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 2, 2022

    Spider-Man 2099: Exodus - Alpha #1returns to Miguel O'Hara's timeline for an action-packed story that celebrates the fan-favorite web-slinger's 30th anniversary. With upcoming issues slated to focus on the 2099 versions of Marvel heroes including the Winter Soldier and Loki, I'm looking forward to where Orlando and his collaborators takeExodus' story.

    Overall, Spider-Man 2099: Exodus Alpha is an excellent return to Nueva York and the world of 2099. The story by Orlando is exciting. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a worthy reintroduction of a classic series. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes May 2, 2022

    You should definitely pick this one up. It's got all the elements of a great superhero comic, and Steve Orlando and Paul Fry execute them almost perfectly. This issue is very worthy of Spider-Man 2099's big thirtieth anniversary celebration, and this mini-series needs to be on your pull list!! Read Full Review

    This new era of Spider-Man 2099 kicks off with a bang, in an Alpha primer issue that does a lot of legwork to set up this story for new readers. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler May 4, 2022

    Spider-Man 2099: Exodus Alpha #1 delivers a good story that old and new fans alike can enjoy. Steve Orlando's story has Miguel take on the mysterious "Cabal which has its share of intrigue, solid pacing, and good action for readers to enjoy. Miguel O'Hara and Ghost Rider 2099 both look great in the comic, especially when they're in action thanks to the art by Paul Fry and Neeraj Menon's colors. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 4, 2022

    Spider-Man 2099: Exodus Alpha #1 is a fun read that kicks off a nice way to celebrate 30 years. The comic feels like returning to old friends and hopefully the event itself is more of the same. It's not groundbreaking but it is a lot of pop entertainment. Read Full Review

    Let the 2099 universe rip! As a fan of the verse, what a great start. Looking forward to this run.

    What totally jumped into my face was how _readable_ this book was. The story smoothly flowed from panel to panel from start to finish and I never had to crank up my concentration or revisit earlier panels, like: huh what? who was that again? (Which regularly happens with, for instance, most of Marvel's X-books)

    The only point of criticism was that everything could've been just a _mite_ more intense, but, since this is an "Alpha" book, where stuff needs to be put into place first (also, it wouldn't do if the pacing starts to sag in the next installment), you guys are forgiven. ;-)

    Both artist and the writer were unknown to me, so I had no expectations for this. So I was pleasently surprised.

    However, I'm very confused by the continuity. This seemingly isn't the same Miguel we were introduced in Spencer's 2099 event few years back. Because the world seems entirely different and there is no mention of Doom.

    The art was fantastic. I thought it was a great looking Spidey 2099. The story felt muddled and didn't excite me too much. I still think it's worth seeing through.

    Art and prose are of similar character here: At first glance, the visuals are flashy and impressive and the prose is intriguing and fast-paced. But it's all incredibly delicate; looking even a little closer reveals serious flaws in both visuals and words. What ties it all together is a plot that doesn't seem to have much potential; a hopelessly cliched Spidey grudge-match dressed up in some sci-fi tinsel.
