    Born out of Spider-Verse, the rocking Spider-Punk gains his very own miniseries as his punk style Earth gets the fleshed-out treatment. A rocking first issue from this creative team as they lean into the fun atmosphere of this character and his world while diving into some relevant pressing issues all wrapped up in a colorful dynamic and fun artistic package.

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Apr 4, 2022

    Spider-Punk #1 serves as the perfect intro to a fan-favorite character from the Spider-Verse, as its creative team has a clear love for Hobie Brown and the world he inhabits. Future issues will no doubt continue to expand the world of Earth-138 and present new challenges for the Spider-Punk, but fighting evil and shredding on his guitar is what he was born to do.

    Spider-Punk #1 is a well-crafted, striking introduction to Marvel's anti-fascist arachnid. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 6, 2022

    Yeah, there's something ironic about a giant corporation that's owned by another that's very not punk putting out this comic. Still, Spider-Punk #1 is just a hell of a lot of fun. It leans into the concept without overdoing it and going up near the line of making fun of its punk world but never crossing it. It's popcorn entertainment with a bit of a left message to absorb.

    While Spider-Man has a lot of alternate versions I would say this is definitely one of them and it is worth checking out if you are into the character. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Manzo Apr 11, 2022

    A fun storyline that puts some great twists on known characters, but until the final reveal of the true villain pulling the strings, it felt shaky on where it's going to go for the rest of the storyline. It still needs some more development but a good hook for a quirky miniseries. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 7, 2022

    Ziglar leans hard into the punk aspects, while Mason's art and design feels appropriately hardcore for the world they're creating. It may not be for everyone, but it's definitely a good start. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Apr 6, 2022

    Spider-Punk #1 is a bizarre comic that mixes all the worst stereotypes about Leftist activists into a story about Spider pals fighting the evils of Gentrification and Capitalism. If this is a parody, it's cleverly disguised parody. If it's not, this comic practically dares you to make fun of it for the level of obnoxiousness it reaches. Read Full Review

    Had a ton of fun with this, love the art, love the designs.
    Cody Ziglar has got a fun voice for these characters and I'm curious to see where it goes.
    Aint nothing subtle about punk and with the current wave of queer punk, it is something I am fully embracing. Them LA show's are so much fun.
    I def wanna make a playlist for this series, I'm inspired!

    I'm not a punk guy (I caught maybe 2 of the spillion musical references here) and I'm really not a Cody Ziglar guy (I find his slang addiction intolerable), but this issue is a pleasant surprise to me.

    The plot's nothing special -- but nothing terrible, either. The pace is a little wonky. But the dialogue's solid, with the author employing merciful restraint on the slang. And the art's a lot of fun to look at. It has the perfect blend of scruff, detail, and dynamism. The visuals do as much as the words to establish this comic's passionate street-level tone.

    Cody Ziglar seems to be writing a punk book that is more early rap mixed with lame! The biggest punk thing in the book is Riri has a whiteboard/poster that says Punk Rulez! The most non-punk thing ever! Plus, with a chance to establish Spider-Punk and his Earth, he is busy somehow thinking that calling their base the "Spider-Base"???? He even references it again as if it is some sort of clever joke. Spoiler - It isn't! The art has its own style (though again, it's more of an 80s graffiti-style with dayglo colors than anything that screams out "punk"), but the dialogue and character work are awful. Avoid!
