    Pastrami Nation - Nolan Smith Jan 6, 2016

    Kelly and McGuinness are two of my absolute favorite creators- so to see them back, working on a book with a character they catapulted to super stardom, its an amazing feeling. The artwork looks fantastic, and Pool looks the way only McGuinness can draw. We get one of the most awkward team ups in Marvel history, and I cant wait until the second issue. If you want an enjoyable, fun read with tons of action and humor, then look no further. One of the best debut issues of 2015? You betcha. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Chris Bennett Jan 11, 2016

    An absolute pleasure to read from start to finish, with what may have been an obvious curveball thrown at the end, it was still fun as hell nonetheless. I'll eat every bad word I previously said about it. I dare you to give it two pages as well. Trust me, it'll have you hook line and sinker. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - John Newby Jan 5, 2016

    It's hard to beat a well-written comic with a lot of humor and disturbingly beautiful art. The mouthy character is headed for ridiculous amounts of popularity, so now is the perfect time to jump on the Deadpool bandwagon. Go pick up the very entertaining Spider-Man/Deadpool #1.

    The Pop Break - Logan J. Fowler Jan 11, 2016

    Deadpool's true path is revealed as the story concludes, and one would wonder, if he succeeds, how will this affect the comic book world? The interactions between both characters and the cliffhanger are definitely more than enough to make me stick around for more. Spider-Man/Deadpool #1 was a great start to this series; it was funny, showcases amazing artwork, had great written dialogue between the two, and, saving the best for last, it features Spider-Man covered in feces and urine. What more can you want? Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Cain Winstead Jan 7, 2016

    Irreverent, crass, bawdy, and with a hint of heart, Kelly and McGuinness bring back the Merc with a Mouth like they never left the character. Oh yeah, Spider-Man's there too! An amazing first issue that works as both as a launching point for a story line as well as a stand-alone team-up issue. Though it may lean on Deadpool a little more than Spider-Man, this is still a book worth picking up for fans of either character. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 4, 2016

    This series boasts a terrific team-up, both in terms of the characters involved and the creators bringing their misadventures to life. This first issue covers a lot of ground with ease. It offers terrific artwork, ample amounts of humor, surprisingly deep characterization and a conflict that confidently sets the stage for an ongoing Spidey/Deadpool team-up. It's everything a first issue should be. The fact that this issue crams in a reprint of the equally stellar Vision #1 on top of everything else makes it that much more of a no-brainer purchase.

    Florida Geek Scene - Brian Reed Jan 13, 2016

    I honestly can't think of any one who shouldn't buy this book. Even if you're not a huge DP fan, Spidey is pretty can't-miss, and this is a fine adventure of his. But really, even if you're not into heroes at all, or know nothing about these characters, this is pure fun to read. I can easily see a grown adult laying on the floor, feet up like a child, giggling with every page. Read Full Review

    ComicWow!TV - Bhavna Bakshi Jan 7, 2016

    I’ve been waiting for this series for a long time now, and I’m so glad it’s here. In the back of it, there is even another issue: Vision #1. I won’t focus on that, but let’s just say it’s worth the read. This series, though only at the first issue, is living up to every expectation I have. I’m so glad these two are teaming up for a series I’m sure we won’t soon forget. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Jan 6, 2016

    Frankly, I was a bit surprised with how much I enjoyed this first issue, considering Deadpool and Spider-Man aren't my two favorite characters. The writing is entertaining and the back and forth between Spider-Man and Deadpool is delightful. The creative team of this new series is putting together something that is a bit of fun, and I recommend you check this issue out. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jan 4, 2016

    Ultimately, Spider-Man/Deadpool is a strong showing from two talented creators, and there will likely be a ton of self-selection just as this book is released. People who find Wade Wilson annoying or one-note will not be converted here, while readers who can't get enough of the Merc with a Mouth will have one more title to enjoy his presence. Seeing Ed McGuinness artwork is enough of a treat for this reviewer to give this book a chance - here's hoping that Joe Kelly will dig even deeper into this not-so-odd couple in future installments.

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Jan 5, 2016

    "Spider-Man/Deadpool" #1 is funny, action-packed and seems as though it will get even more personal as the story unfolds. Readers who enjoyed "Hawkeye Vs. Deadpool" will probably like this; it's a book begging for a "Lethal Weapon" parody cover. Editors Nick Lowe and Jordan D. White both steer this ship, so continuity heads and fans concerned about on-character representations can rest assured. The story is accessible and will keep fans up-to-date if they're just checking in on the story. Kelly's cliffhanger plays into the current state of the Spider-books, and the conclusion teases some even deeper ties, which looks fun as hell. Marvel's decision to put one of its most well-received creative teams on this book was a great idea; this story is going to be a fun one. Read Full Review

    SnapPow.com - Harrison Rawdin Jan 7, 2016

    Spider-Man/Deadpool #1 is a good start that gets more right than wrong as the creative builds a fun atmosphere. And considering where the last page left the title I'm more than eager to see what the creative team does next. Read Full Review

    PopOptiq - Logan Dalton Jan 7, 2016

    Spider-Man/Deadpool #1 is filled with jokes, sexual tension, gross out gags, and slightly self-aware supervillains galore all from the wacky mind palace of Deadpool legend (and basically daddy) Joe Kelly. Ed McGuinness and Mark Morales' art is slick with a side of disgusting and helps the story move on at a bouncy pace. There may be an overreliance on bathroom humor due to this issue's villain, but there's also jokes about Uber's labor practices and some great puns for folks whose eyebrows are glued on higher than the rest of us. Early on, there seems to be a gap between the Hydro Man battle and Deadpool accidentally teleporting him and Dormammu to Hell, but by the final page all his revealed along with the series' hook. It's another Deadpool redemption story, but this time with Spider-Man as his goofy guardian angel. But his path isn't as simple as that last sentence. (Deadpool does have a handy morality choosing gadget that is McGuinness' best visual funny.) Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 4, 2016

    Your enjoyment of the comic is squarely on whether you find Deadpool funny or entertaining. To me, we're well beyond Wolverine saturation and in to annoying guy you don't want to be around anymore. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Jan 5, 2016

    Im not quite sure where this series is headed, but Wade seems to have some machinations at play. The set up seemed strange to me, essentially creating Spider-Man/Deadpool #1 as the antithesis of a buddy comic. However, if you like seeing an agitated Spider-Man, or just love Deadpool in general, Id say this issue and series is worth a go. Some of the jokes werent bad and had great timing. Theres a lot of action and there may be some surprises in store as the series moves forward. Read Full Review

    Joe Kelly’s second entry this week is much more of a crowd pleaser than Four Eyes, I mean cmon- its Deadpool and Spider-Man! What’s not to love? It was a weird, wild ride, and it looked REALLY good. I loved the way the first page does such a good job of subverting expectations for what is to come on the next page- it just really started the book out on a high note, and told anyone and everyone who flipped through this book that the story is going to be something totally unexpected. I loved Deadpool’s spinning wheel of morality where it dictates his general tone in any situation. I feel like that is a thing a lot more people need. I also loved the MODOK jokes, and the pop culture references sprinkled throughout. The only things that bothered me about the issue was the lack of explanation as to who was the character that made reference to being an actor “trained at Thebes” im not sure if this was someone we are supposed to know or not, but I do not know them. Also the way Deadpool looked while he was regenerating his hands and legs at the end was just a weird choice- his little nubby hands and having feet grow directly out of his pelvis wasn’t anything that seemed impossible for the character to do, it was just odd enough to really give me a moments pause and go “wait- what the heck is that?!?!” but I moved beyond it quickly enough. Also the end of the issue is one of those moments that you almost kick yourself for being “convenient” but that didn’t really occur to me at all before I read it, which was a nice change of pace- I didn’t see the setup for the rest of the story coming ahead of time, maybe I was just still chuckling to myself too much over the Oprah reference earlier in the issue, but it didn’t really jump right out at me. This was a really fun, weird book, and I think the rest of this arc will be just as ridiculous and fun to read, too!

    This issue is witty, has plenty of twists and is drawn beautifully. The chaotic nature of these characters and the story does make it a bit difficult to follow at times.

    Spider-Man/Deadpool plays out like a buddy cop movie. It does tie in a little to Uncanny Avengers. Both characters are portrayed pretty accurately and I look forward to where this book will go. Spider-Man and Deadpool is a math made in heaven.

    I bit too sporadic but probably the best Deadpool comic out all the crap he's in right now.

    Wow, this comic must really suck, because Comicosity rated it a 7.0 and they almost never give any book less than an 8.0, especially if it's from Marvel.
