    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 20, 2019

    Williams and Gomez are playing with a really unique series that might have a charming opportunity for success in the current era. With entertainment news traveling as quickly as it does, the average movie fan knows a lot more about filmmaking now than ever before. Superhero films are some of the most successful movies there are. A comic book about a super-villain movie inside the Marvel Universe just might be interesting enough to gather readers as the story gains momentum. Read Full Review

    Despite my new interest in Mysterio, Im left scratching my head. Williams does a good job showing MJ as a strong, capable woman (as she should be) who has no problem facing challenges thrown her way (which she shouldnt). She is thrown into the plot of someone elses drama instead of a story about her own development or struggle. The Amazing Mary Jane #2 (Williams, Lopez, Gomez) is an enjoyable story with well-done art, but as Mary Janes first miniseries, it feels like it could be Mysterios first mini instead.

    Amazing Mary Jane still struggles to find its voice, but has a unique point of view for the superhero genre as it explores the day-to-day hiccups that come along with set life. Read Full Review

    While the cliffhanger does provide a slight glimmer of hope, it can't save this issue. MJ is a truly great character, but unfortunately doesn't get a chance to shine in her own book. This series should really be called "The Mystery of Mysterio's Missing Self-Esteem". Because it's been ALL about him so far. Read Full Review

    After a dismal first issue, The Amazing Mary Jane continues to walk a path towards a new genre, something that might be described as "anti-comics." Read Full Review
