    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Nov 15, 2015

    With two great stories this comic is off at a great start. Pretty much anyone can pick this up and get hooked on the series. From the fans who've read Spider-Verse to some of the new readers who like Spider-Man, but haven't gotten into comics yet. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 11, 2015

    This is a fun issue with surprises and strong characters that will most assuredly lead to great drama and a foe that makes a lot of sense. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jay Mattson Nov 14, 2015

    Web Warriors #1 is fun because it's everything that makes Spider-Man great without the one thing that usually drags Spider-books down: Peter Parker. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 12, 2015

    The Spider-Verse Secret Wars mini-series offered a solid foundation for an ongoing team book. This series builds on that foundation and adds in a new art style that's much more suited to a team full of lithe, athletic Spider-heroes. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Doug Zawisza Nov 11, 2015

    If readers didn't get enough of the "Spider-Verse" characters before now, Web Warriors #1 brings plenty of opportunity for further exploration. Writer Mike Costa and artist David Baldeon bring fan-favorites Spider-Ham, Spider-UK, Spider-Man India, Spider-Gwen, Anya Corazon, Mayday Parker and Spider-Man Noir together for a reality-hopping adventure.

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Nov 16, 2015

    Time will tell whether this formula works better in small doses or an extended format, but the sheer number of people filling this oversized issue is indicative of the fact that there are many stories left to tell in the vast Marvel Multiverse. The wider story hinted at in both of these tales, involving a silvery plot, is also something that Web Warriors has over a simple vignette format. With the right balance of different writers and artists thrown at this book, it could readily become one of Marvel's leading lights. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Nov 13, 2015

    The notion of a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is thrown out the window here -- or, at least, the neighborhood part is. However, "Web Warriors" #1 is just too much fun not to like. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - W.B. Xavier Nov 12, 2015

    I enjoyed this first issue well enough, but I had the same problem I had with the Secret Wars Spider-Verse mini. It's not very newbie friendly, and in fact, if you only read the previous Spider-Verse mini-series, you might be confused, as the events of that series really aren't referenced. Read Full Review

    Inter-Comics Podcast - Daniel Cole Nov 11, 2015

    On the whole Web Warriors is a book that will interest fans of Spider-Man. It will bring in the Mayday Parker and Spider-Girl fans who have missed these characters. Spider-Gwen is front and centre for marketing purposes. But the book doesn't feel dictated by a marketing gimmick, yes it was created due to Spider-Verse's popularity but Costa clearly has his own story to tell. At the moment the only real problem with this issue is that it isn't that new reader friendly and but at least its fun. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Nov 17, 2015

    Web Warriors is unashamed to be the series where wild, wacky ideas are molded into metaphorical action figures and slammed together and that's great. The opening scene is just wonderful and Mike Costa has set the stage for some interesting developments. Unfortunately there's just not quite enough of any one thing for this issue to click. The plot isn't quite deep enough to hook you, the characters are not quite developed enough to breed attachment to them, the art is just not quite consistent enough to justify a purchase, and the $5.00 price tag amplifies all of this.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 14, 2015

    The characters are diverse and unique, though Costa doesn't give them anything particularly unique to do yet. The art is wild and kinda fun, and it definitely fits the comic. I guess you've just got to really like the characters and the premise. Read Full Review
