    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Oct 2, 2019

    This series is going to end up being one to watch if the clever way of showing different Earths and Spider-characters is any indication. I'm sincerely looking forward to what reveals will be included in Spider-Verse #2. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 1, 2019

    I liked this book, but I'm also a Spider-Man fanatic so it's very much a book made for me. If you love the concept of many Spider-People and their various designs and personalities being explored, you'll love this. This is the epitome of Spider-Man fun in all shapes and sizes. Read Full Review

    GWW - Dusty Good Oct 4, 2019

    The creative team really takes the story to the artistic extremes. From the heavily packed and detailed style we see in the segment featuring Spider-Monster to the sparse classic anime style that features its own interpretation of Spidey. There is something here for everyone. While I might not be up-to-date on all the characters and their respective backstories I think that is part of the charm of a series like this. The more obscure characters will force fans to go out and learn more about who is who and where they fit into the Spider-Man universe. Read Full Review

    This is everything a number 1 should be! A super fun issue that introduces us to the characters, what the problems are, and what the plan is to resolve the problems. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Oct 6, 2019

    While this issue was disappointing, it does have a new creative team every issue, and I think that that could either be very good or very bad, we'll just have to wait and see. Bottom line: Is this comic worth your $4? Yes, it is. Buy it! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Oct 5, 2019

    It is beautifully drawn and colored and is well executed with what the writer intended to do. If you liked the movie or previous comics with this topic, then this is a must pick up. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Kenneth Laster Oct 4, 2019

    "Spider-Verse" #1 is a pretty fun story that doesn't really stress itself out over story but thrives with a varied art team with fresh stories. Read Full Review

    Spider-Verse #1 steps out this week with a rather confusing start. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Oct 2, 2019

    Maybe this will read better in a trade, but as a stand-alone issue, Spider-Verse #1 did not do it for me. A first issue should never be so uneventful, and MacKay’s misunderstanding of Miles as a character is not doing anyone any favors. The art is at least good throughout, but none of the creators get room to spread their wings and strut their stuff. If you must, read it on Unlimited. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Oct 4, 2019

    It doesn't entice the reader to want to pick up more, especially for fans who have followed the previous Spider-Verse events that did the same exact story tactic. Read Full Review
