The year is 1933, and New York City is run by corrupt politicians, crooked cops, and suave gangland bosses like the Goblin. But when a fateful spider-bite gives the young rabble-rouser Peter Parker the power to fight back, will even that be enough?

    All-in-all, this is a great read and a must have from this year's releases. The end will leave you craving more. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a good start to an interesting series. However, I don't see how this Noir series will appeal to anyone save the die-hard Spider-Man fans. At the same time, I'm sufficiently drawn enough to want to see where a few plot lines go, which is more than I was expecting when I bought this issue. Read Full Review

    Spider-Man Noir #1 was an enjoyable read. Hine and Sapolsky construct an intriguing corner of the Noir Universe and immediately hooked me into this story. While this issue does not move at a blistering pace or provide the reader with much action, it is still an textured read that gives the reader plenty to think about and chew on. Spider-Man Noir #1 was a solid set-up issue and I expect more action with the next issue. Read Full Review

    So far, I can't really recommend this to anything other than lovers of all things Spider-Man. There certainly is potential, especially given the curveball thrown at the end of the issue, but I recommend holding off for now. Read Full Review

    All and all, "Spider-Man: Noir" is a fairly pedestrian addition to the "Noir" line. There's a bit more to the genre than hoboes and seersuckers, and there's a bit more to Spider-Man than moping and vengeance. In short, a failure at both ends. Read Full Review
