    I completely forgive Dennis Hopeless for revealing that Porcupine didn’t really die. This is like the ending of my favorite movie, Stranger Than Fiction. We can’t kill the Roger Gockings of the world. I could just start gushing right now and I might never stop. Hopeless has done such a great job over the course of the series to build up this relationship that everything in this issue is so much more impactful — and we honestly don’t see this a lot in comics. He put in the effort and now Jess and Roger are so cute together, whether they’re making out in celebration or raising their fists to prepare for battle together.

    My only hope is that this relationship somehow survives the end of the series. Maybe Hopeless can bring it with him to Doctor Strange.

    Everything is awesome in this issue. I loved how Roger’s narration is all about praising Jessica, until he realizes that he doesn’t have to be a damsel in distress and should start helping her out, even while tied up! I loved how Spider-Woman just kicks total ass, with a fair amount of banter, in a series of glider fights over a raging tire fire. That’s epic stuff! I loved how Captain Marvel showed up at the end to save the day. She was part of this story early on, she’s a legit character to bring back. It was so well done!

    Spider-Woman is amazing. This issue is amazing. Hopeless’ work here is a master class in creating relatable characters over the course of a series and then using that foundation to enhance already exciting stories. This is a climax with real heart.

    This issue of Spider-Woman just punched me right in all the feels, in a good way. Finally, something good happens to one of my favorite spider superheroes, although it took them some time to get there. Jessica has always been loyal to the people she cares for and loves, and she tends to be more compassionate towards people. Jessica and Porcupine are finally able to express their feelings for another, and no one died. She and Carol even made up in the end, so Jessica has all of her people again.
