    SPIDER-MAN NOIR #1 is a great beginning to the five-issue mini-serious that oozes noir vibes. If you've never read a Spider-Man Noir story, now is a great time to start! Read Full Review

    Stohl stays true to its characters and sets up an effectively mysterious tone and story, with Ferreyra's art providing it with a rainy and jazzy visual soundtrack. With some of the greatest themes in Spider-Man present (like his need to do everything in his hands to help others), and some really sweet character interactions, the book promises a story that we're eager to see unfold.

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Mar 4, 2020

    This book does so much of what I love about superhero comics well: fantastical high-octane illustrations, tons of absurdities, and relentless pop culture tropes and references, all while going through narrative structural paces with due diligence. I do hope the pacing picks up a bit, but thats a small gripe for a stellar comic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - besottedgeek Mar 3, 2020

    SPIDER-MAN NOIR #1 is a snazzy start to a juicy mystery. Margaret Stohls snappy dialogue and Juan Ferreyras moody art put readers in the thick of 1930s Manhattan, and the books end promises more intrigue and adventure. So shake a leg and peep this issue or risk looking like a wet sock! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Mar 9, 2020

    While the storytelling, especially the dialogue, is rather clich for a noir tale, Juan Ferreyra's artwork and colors lift up and enhance the script of this new debut. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 3, 2020

    I'm here for Juan Ferreyra and the idea of a further fleshed out Spider-Man of this dimension. It does have the bones of a great Indiana Jones caper or the matine serials that film was based on, but the characters are stale out of the gate. I want a little more from them before really investing in this story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Mar 4, 2020

    Aside from some really solid visuals, I didn’t find anything in this book that has me tempted or curious to see where it is going. That’s not to say there’s anything bad about it – just nothing remarkable. If the noir setting is absolutely your thing, then you probably don’t need me to tell you to pick this up. Otherwise, I would check it out on MU if you’re interested. Read Full Review
