    All told, I definitely enjoyed the book and am looking forward to more, but part of me still wishes it had the opportunity to be its own book first before going into all of this. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Dec 17, 2014

    While the issue does read better in terms of overall tone, it's still a bit disheartening that most of Spider-Woman's ability to glean new information comes from her powers of persuasion or surprise romantic entanglements, no matter how many questions said interactions raise. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Meagan Damore Dec 19, 2014

    All things considered, "Spider-Woman" #2 is a complicated issue. With a strong and utterly enjoyable core story and perfect dialogue execution, Hopeless demonstrates that this will be a book worth buying once "Spider-Verse" is over and done. However, Land's style just doesn't fit the tone or character and it can't convey the emotional impact of the issue's reveals. Fortunately, Hopeless puts a lot into "Spider-Woman" that's worth sticking around for. Read Full Review

    As with any issue penciled by Greg Land, the artwork keeps the script from being as good as it should be Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Jaleh Najafali Dec 21, 2014

    Spider-Woman #2 functions mainly as a filler issue that doesn't add much depth to either Jessica's personal journey or "Spider-Verse." That being said, the thought-provoking twist at the end provides a bit of excitement and anticipation of what is to come. Read Full Review

    We can complain all we want about how over-sexualized women are in comic books but this issue was damn fun. Yes Greg Land draws all his girls with huge boobs and slim waistlines (similar complaints are being made about Finch's Wonder Woman and I don't completely disagree) but as far as adventure comics go, this issue wasn't that bad. Of course, I still think Spider-Gwen has a better platform because Gwen Stacy has always been a smart confident female lead and she can be appreciated by fans new and old. Still Jessica Drew does an ok job in the meantime as the primary Spider-Woman. Hopefully by the time Silk gets her stand alone title next year she won't be such a rookie because she's as clueless as they come in terms of the Spiders. But since they call her the bride, I'm assuming she has a bigger role to play in the Spider-Verse event so maybe after Spider-Verse ends, her character won't just be a supporting character. Spider-Woman isn't Marvel's best new titles but it's also not horrible. Still I can't see myself sticking with this book but for now I'll read it if only for the Spider-Verse tie-in.

    This series is by far my favorite Spider-Verse tie-in.
