    I loved the pre-Secret Wars series, and I’m in still love with Spider-Woman post-Secret Wars. Jessica Drew has some interesting adventures ahead of her, and her supporting cast looks like it’ll show up in a lot of awesome ways. This series gets into some interesting dynamics regarding the varied lives of super-heroes, so it’s definitely worth a read. There are some important dialogues that reflect some very real-life experiences, which makes me curious how many people will see Jessica in this new light.

    The only thing new about this series is the status quo. But considering how little time we got to savor Dennis Hopeless and Javier Rodriguez’s Spider-Woman before Secret Wars cut things short, and changes to the creative team would be a disappointment. This first issue makes the most of the book’s core character dynamics as Jessica grapples with her new life as a superhero mother-to-be. This issue even opens up her world to bigger and crazier conflicts again, promising an exciting road ahead for Spider-Woman.

    The first issue exceeded my expectations with a solid mixture of action and humor. I went in liking the concept and came out loving the comic. Can’t wait to see where Hopeless and Rodriguez take it from here.

    Spider-Woman #1 is one of the absolute best debuts of the All-New, All-Different Marvel line. It is an example of what a team of excellent creators can do when collaborating on a story and craft they clearly care about. The pregnancy storyline is handled very well here, but it speaks volumes about the quality of this comic that it is far from the only thing with discussing. There’s a lot of great things happening in Spider-Woman, and it would be a shame for superhero fans to miss out on any of them.

    I loved this issue, and I’m so glad that Spencer took the time to address Darla Deering. If you didn’t read Fraction’s FF, it was a fun, adorable comic with a lot of great characters. And it ended with a lot of big moments for Scott, with Darla as his love interest. But then they disappeared when that series was over, making one tiny reappearance as a couple in a random issue of Avengers World, when Doctor Doom brought Cassie Lang back to life. Spencer tackles all of that and then some, giving us the ‘end’ of their relationship and the new closure found in this issue. It was quite touching.
