    Spider-Verse Team-Up #1 was a fun issue with two stories worth following. This is something to kill time with if your just looking for some random fun that doesn't require you to have to follow the main story to enjoy. If you're looking for some spin-offs that have more adventures with these alternate Spider-man, Spider-Verse Team-Up #1 is a good place to start. Read Full Review

    If youre already invested in Spider-Verse, this ones a no-brainer. It presents more of the spiders that weve already met and even introduces us to one or two more. This series is beginning to feel like a real love-letter to Spider-Fans, and this series looks to be the fan-service-est of them all. If youre on the fence about the series, or the main characters, this wont do anything to change your mind, but if all you want is more, this delivers. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Nov 6, 2014

    The second chapter, courtesy of writer Roger Stern and artist Bob McLeod, proves more reflective in nature, pairing the shoot-em-up Parker of Spider-Man: Noir with his more cerebral Eight-Armed counterpart. Stern plays the two together beautifully, each reacting strongly to a world they find eerily similar and at times depressingly different. This chapter doesn't lend itself to the main tale in quite the same way, but it does wonders in highlighting the basic traits that seemingly define all parties involved, ending on a surprisingly poignant note. A book with multiple Spideys is sure to bring readers to the rack, but its stories like this that will keep them coming back. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Doug Zawisza Nov 6, 2014

    Spider-Verse Team-Up #1 lingers on the edge of "Spider-Verse," but still offers a pair of fun stories more geared to fans of specific Spidey-characters. Spider-Man Noir, Six-Arm Spider-Man, Old Man Spider-Man, Spider-Ham and Ben Reilly all make the journey into "Spider-Verse" in this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 6, 2014

    Like "Marvel Team-Up" from the 1970s and 1980s, "Spider-Verse Team-Up" #1 doesn't do much to enhance the overall narrative in place around "Spider-Verse," but it does deliver an extra spot for Spider-fans to check in on some of their favorite variant webslingers. Although it is timed to run parallel to "Spider-Verse" proper, this comic book feels more like additional "Edge of Spider-Verse" build-up, as the "Spider-Verse" event is unchanged from the actions taken in the complete tales presented here. All said, this is a fun read that gives readers a chance to enjoy the madness brought about by "Spider-Verse" without overwhelming dread lingering behind every page turn. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Nov 12, 2014

    Theres plenty of potential for future yarns in this team-up title, but the initial pair of stories fall flat. Rather than using the carte blanche provided by a nearly limitless cast of Spider-Men, both tales play it safe and make use of obvious endings in order to wrap things up. These are two of the least interesting takes to be found in the big collection of Spider-Verse stories thus far, although there is still some fun to be had. Read Full Review

    Two more stories are here to expand the Spider-Verse story, and they're both a bit saccharine and feel extraneous. Read Full Review
