    Spider-Woman has always been one of my favorite characters in the Marvel Universe. And I am glad to see her back with her own series. I like how she is doing her thing on the streets, taking down Hydra parties, hunting down thugs, and basically figuring out life. It’ll be a blast seeing how the story progresses as she joins Spider-Man in his Gang War, while also focusing on burning Hydra down. All in all, I really missed Spider-Woman, and seeing her unleash those blasts and charges to neutralize her enemies is a much-needed breath of fresh air. Although, if you’d remember, Carol made it very clear that if Spider-Woman did that to her, it would only be a tickle. Maybe we’ll get to see a Spider-Woman versus Captain Marvel showdown soon to really test that theory.

    Spider-Woman #1 isn’t your usual tie-in book; there’s a real emotional core backed by great writing and great art. Whether or not you’re invested in the Gang War storyline, this comic is worth a read.

    A new creative team takes on the adventures of Jessica Drew, and while there are a lot of ties to current events in Spider-Man’s world, there are also several strong elements from previous runs mixed in for good measure. All this results in a compelling new concoction that feels fresh and familiar simultaneously, with immediately identifiable and significant stakes for her as a hero and as a human being. Spider-Woman #1 is a hell of a start, and hopefully, things only get better from here.

    I don’t recognize Steve Foxe or any of this Spider-Woman #1 creative team, but they had big shoes to fill, and so far I’m really digging it. Does Carola Borelli’s art in this issue remind anyone else of Bill Willingham meets Ryan Ottley?

    Despite being a part of a huge crossover featuring the more “street level” Marvel Comics characters this first issue could stand on its own. Steve and Carola do a pretty bang up job here crafting a rather new reader friendly first issue. Sure, there’s some rough spots, but overall I found this to be a rather decent first outing. Here’s hoping this team can knock it out of the park.

    Less of a tie-in to the Gang War event as the other two tie-ins this week, Steve Foxe’s story focuses more on Jessica Drew’s lingering storyline around her missing child (lots of similarity to Mystique’s story) and her own personal vendetta against Diamondback. Something felt very off about Foxe’s writing for Jessica, perhaps I’ve just reached my fill of Marvel moms running around crying for their children. It reduces these characters to grieving mothers and limits them from any further layers of complexity. Let’s hope Foxe can get a better grasp on Jessica’s voice give his lead on her ongoing series after this event ends. #JusticeforJessica
