    Superior Spider-Talk - Brian Jacob Dec 11, 2015

    Gwen breaks free in more ways than one. Visually stunning, Radioactive Spider-Gwen #3 does well by keeping a lot of plates spinning, even though it slips a bit toward the end. Read Full Review

    Even the best punk outfits couldn't go hard all the time, and Spider-Gwen #3 shows that this series can still deliver even when working within a slower tempo. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Oscar Maltby Dec 14, 2015

    As expected, Spider-Gwen #3 is another stellar issue of a book that continues to justify its status as one of Marvel's hottest new series. Jason Latour's clear ambition has paid off with this issue, which stands as one of the most important issues of Spider-Gwen yet, as well as a great example in how to write compelling drama. Although Robbi Rodriguez's stylized pencils hits new heights of extreme this issue, his great panel composition and evocative character expressions ensure that Latour's story is told with maximum effectiveness. If you're not on the Spider-Gwen train yet, its still not too late to grab a ticket. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Mad Moll Green Dec 12, 2015

    I recognize Harry Osborn's potential as a character who reflects Gwen's inner turmoil and motivations, as a person she can learn from. But her story is already full of characters and people like that. Maybe too many. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Dec 11, 2015

    As an issue setting up for a twist on an iconic battle, we can accept this issue for the plot-builder it is. It does highlight a few weaknesses for the title though, particularly in the narrow number of characters you really know and feel for" which is basically limited to Gwen herself; maybe Detective Stacy too, if you're generous. She needs a consistent supporting character in the form of Glory, Mary Jane, or someone else, especially in issues like this one. I don't begrudge Jessica Drew's cameo, but her role in the narrative was due distinctly to Gwen not having a ride-or-die right here in Earth-65. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Dec 9, 2015

    Possible suspension of belief-breaking technology aside, this issue also struggles in a couple of other respects. It just feels too early and unearned for Gwen to be back to the 616 Universe, give the character some time to establish her own world. Read Full Review

    Absolutely loved this issue. I like character studies, and got that here. I enjoyed the rapport between Gwen and Jessica. My heart went out to the young heroine as she contemplates her life, and that of the Gwen who died on Earth 616. It also sets up some new conflicts coming for her and her father.

    For the first time since this series started up again I was interested in the characters and story that was developing. Finally it seemed there were obstacles Gwen is facing that seems to have weight.
