    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.

    Spider-Punk rips. This book has everything you want out of superhero comics and snotty punk rock, all wrapped in one colorful, high-octane package.

    But Why Tho?

    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.

    Graphic Policy

    eah, 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.

    Spider-Punk roars to life this week with a debut issue featuring Riri Williams, a sellout Kraven, and enough anarchy puns to satisfy any reader. As Hobie works with his band of allies to keep Brooklyn safe, a plot involving Norman Osborne and Kraven snags their attention in a big way. Our fiesty heroes are quick to establish themselves as down-home heroes, and their frantic fights speak for themselves. But by the end, the arrival of a familiar foe has Hobie swinging from the ropes.

    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.

    Spider-Punk #1 is on the nose with its puns and themes, it is a rocking good time with an amusing and diverse cast.

    Multiversity Comics

    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.

    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.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    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.
