    It can't stress enough how awesome Spider-Gwen #5 was. If you liked Spider-Gwen before, certainly you're going to like the characters introduced in this issue. Read Full Review

    Spider-Gwen is the kind of comic that's been so fun for new and veteran readers alike because it captures that alchemy that made Spider-Man so interesting, and gives it a brand-new spin to keep it fresh. And with the all-new Black Cat, this is about as fresh as it gets - this is definitely the best guest star in this series, and that's coming from someone who was going crazy over Spider-Ham's appearance in #2. So don't hesitate to pick up this virtuoso effort, because despite Felicia's felonious actions, to miss this book would be downright criminal. Read Full Review

    Showing off another fun take on another supporting character from the Spider-world, Spider-Gwen #5 delivers kinetic and imaginative fun bathed in beautifully rendered artwork. It's being cut off at the knees, but at least it's going out on a high note. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Jun 12, 2015

    Spider-Gwen #5 knows exactly what it is and in embracing that you are able to feel why this is a comic book unlike anything that Marvel is publishing. The addition of Felicia Hardy gave another layer Gwen Stacy's world both in and out of her superhero adventures. Felicia's involvement also added to the threat that Matt Murdock poses to Spider-Woman and New York as a whole. If you haven't picked up an issue of Spider-Gwen yet I highly recommend fixing that by going out and buying every issue of this series. Read Full Review

    The action is quickly chaotic here when it hits and things do feel a bit rushed in a way with what it wants to do, but it has a sense of fun about it. Read Full Review

    In just five issues, the creative team have conjured up a world we cared about and a heroine that struggled between her duties as a daughter and those of a superhero. We have not seen the last of Spider-Gwen. Read Full Review
