    A good first issue that perfectly captures everything good about the video game, from the science elements, Peter's intelligence, and strong Mary Jane characterization to Spidey's comical nature. If you liked the video game, you'll love this. Read Full Review

    Well I feel like my hype was what kind of left me a bit disappointed. Seems like we are getting quite a bit of information but just too soon. Some wasted panels and pages that could have been used to set things up and shown us a better issue. The dialogue, I guess is good. This is a different Earth so they can be not what we are used to. The art mixes between good and just okay. Needs progress. Nothing really on this issue to make me brag about to others. Hopefully issue two gets me excited again for this story. Read Full Review

    Fans will enjoy seeing the process the hero goes through to design his special gear, but the rest of the issue's action is less than compelling. Read Full Review

    Folks, it takes a lot for me as a librarian to say you're better off playing a video game than reading a book. But if the book in question is Spider-Man: Velocity? Go play more Spider-Man PS4 instead. Read Full Review
