    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Nov 14, 2018

    In all, this is a great package of unique takes of Spider-Man and his mythos. The only real complaint is that some of these stories are just too short. However, the overall quality of these stories more than makes up for their length, a rarity in anthology publications from Marvel and DC these days. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - David DeCorte Nov 2, 2018

    VAULT OF SPIDERS #1 is a fun little snapshot of some of the less-traveled corners of the Spider-Verse. Even if these characters do turn up later in the Spider-Geddon event, you'll be able to get the gist without reading this volume. It's a nonessential, but I'd recommend it either way.

    Vault of Spiders #1 is a bit of a let down but fun to see the various versions of Spider-Man. I'd love to see this as an ongoing with longer stories, the brevity was a hindrance. Like a lot of anthologies, there's some good here and some bad but if you're a Spider fan it might be worth checking out. Read Full Review

    This first offering from the Vault of Spiders has some exceptionally cool moments but they're few and far between and everything else pales in comparison, leaving the whole affair feeling not necessarily lacking but definitely underdeveloped. Read Full Review

    The stories might not all pack the largest punch, but they're still an interesting read " particularly the Ready Player One-esque Spider-Byte story, and the artfully done manga story. Read Full Review
