    Its way too easy for a heros personal life to come across as minor details in the background propping-up the next in a long line of conflicts with colorful villains. Here the personal experience that is so often treated as supporting filler detail becomes a vibrant part of the heros. As McGuire and Miyazawa manage an impressively-articulated progression in the life of Gwen Stacy one issue at a time. Read Full Review

    Ghost-Spider #2 is most assuredly the calm before the storm. And while a fan would never actively root for something bad to happen to Gwen"it will be interesting to see how it all plays out. The foreshadowing in this issue was well done, being both creepy and interesting. Read Full Review

    Ghost-Spider #2 is a strong sophomore issue for the new series starring Spider-Gwen. Seanan McGuire spends quality time developing how Gwen Stacy is juggling her life on Earth-616 and Earth-65. Part of that juggling involved progressing the threats of Jackal on Earth-616 and Man-Wolf on Earth-65 pose to the world around Gwen. The balance between her personal life and threats from multiple villains provides a lot of intriguing plotlines to follow in Gwen's life in and out of her Ghost-Spider costume. Read Full Review

    Ghost-Spider #2 is an excellent slice of Gwen Stacy's life, just as enjoyable for the reader as it is for the protagonist. The inevitable supervillain disaster is looming just off-stage, but its arrival will be made that much better after we've been through this charming and beautifully-rendered day in the sunshine.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 25, 2019

    Overall, Ghost Spider #2 took steps forward to better give us an idea as to what we should expect from this first arc. A lot of what they promised that we should get from this second issue, we got and then some. We got insight into this villain from the past, as well as friends who may or may not be what they seem on the surface. It should be interesting to see what happens once things start actually playing out. Read Full Review

    Ever since Ghost-Spider came to Earth-616 she has fully immersed herself into its bravado, and Seanan McGuire captures it brilliantly. In this issue we continue to see Gwens growth in dealing with multiverse traveling, leaving her dad behind in Earth-65, and not mention kale chips! Adding to her new-found stress is Miles Warren. Now, this might be the Spider-Nerd in me coming out, but seeing The Jackal just makes this issue that much better, and the need for issue three to hurry up and get here that much greater. Overall, I thought this issue was pretty good and does a good job at laying a decent foundation for Gwens future in Earth-616. Read Full Review
