•  Spider-Woman is in the tightest spot she's ever been in. What if even succeeding with her mission means her death?!?!

    It almost feels like it's against my better judgment, but I continue to enjoy Spider-Woman even if the Spider-Verse story isn't making it easy for those that want to dive into the book that aren't intimately familiar with things. This installment gives us some decent time with Silk as she makes some intriguing progress, but it mostly focuses on Jess trying to avoid getting caught as to who she is by Morlun while also gaining some intel and figuring out how to get it back to the rest of the team. It moves quickly through the solid pacing of the script and the fun and layouts for the artwork that keeps you moving from page to page to see what's next. It'll be curious to see where everything goes once we get past the Spider-Verse arc though. Read Full Review

    While there is nothing wrong with the story as such, the art just does not sit well with me and, in my opinion, really lets the book down. The decision to put an artist like Greg Land on a book aimed primarily at women is just baffling. Luckily, Hopeless makes up for Lands shortcomings and prevents this book from being a total loss.

    Spider-Woman shows some signs of life in issue #3, Dennis Hopeless finally allowing the character some brief room to use her considerable skills. The end result still has its problems, mainly in how dependent it remains on the Spider-Verse event at large, but in terms of sheer character it presents a noticeable improvement. Read Full Review

    What the reader is left with is a mess, kind of parallel to when one watches a horrible movie that is well acted. The characterization is wasted here on an incoherent mess that loses sight of its own goals in being able to hold this together. There is still a lot of potential for this series and this character, only it seems as though won't be realized until the Spider-Verse is wrapped up and pushed aside. Until then, readers will continue to get a glimpse of what could be while trying to decipher the rest. Read Full Review

    "Spider-Woman" is a functional, sometimes fun piece of "Spider-Verse" " but it doesn't rise to much more. With a more appropriate artist for the tone and a script that's free to focus on Jess's own adventures, it could grow into a success. It's not there yet, though. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Jaleh Najafali Jan 22, 2015

    Spider-Woman #3 suffers from little plot or character development and disjointed writing. A disappointing continuation of "Spider-Verse," the issue generally retreads the same ground covered in various installments of Amazing Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    I understand why some people don't like this book. If you're not reading ASM it's pretty much useless, which is an odd way to launch a series. However, I have enjoyed the 3 issues well enough because I'm all in on Spider-Verse, although the art takes a step back from last issue. For those following Spider-Verse this issue is best read exactly halfway through ASM #13.

    Okay writing and okay art. Hopeless needs a better handle on Jess' dialogue and Land needs to tone down the faces and proportions. Its dependency on ASM does not help.
