    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 27, 2019

    Events seem to have begun to crash-in on Gwen from both universes now. Gwen's ability to balance things between two worlds is going to live in McGuire's ability to do the same with the scripts. If McGuire can keep it interesting, everything should continue to swirl appealingly around the page. Still, this style of story could easily lose its appeal if it starts to feel like a dull and formulaic variation on the sort of spider story that's been going on for decades.  Read Full Review

    The creative team of McGuire and Miyazawa continue to do a good job withGhost-Spider and capturing Gwens morality and sense of humor. Now I understand that there are bigger titles on the shelves right now, however, Ghost-Spider does a great job in making its claim to be a book that should be read. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 16, 2019

    While it's interesting to see Gwen overwhelmed, which we saw at the beginning of the relaunched title, it's also nice to see her breathe a bit and get a foothold on the new life she's carved out for herself. There's plenty of trouble on the way (including one of the Warrens' plans to destroy Gwen's suit), but that's a problem to deal with tomorrow. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Ghost Spider #4 is a great issue that shows what happens when things are going really well in a superhero's life and they let their guard down for even a second. Great visuals and a solid story. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Nov 27, 2019

    Ghost-Spider #4 was another fun issue in this series. The tension has been building for four issues now, leaving fans wondering when it's all going to burst. But we're going to appreciate Gwen's small (ish) break in the meantime. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Nov 27, 2019

    Ghost-Spider #4 is probably the title's best issue so far, despite its unfortunate tendency to blur together with previous installments. This one looks great, promotes sympathy and intrigue, and finally (I hope) sets the stage for the direct Ghost-Spider/Jackal confrontation that is perhaps a little overdue. Read Full Review

    It's a day in the life of Spider-Gwen. I'm sorry, The Ghost-Spider, and feels like a very old-school take on superhero stories. I liked it! Read Full Review

    It's just disappointing that the story doesn't give you much to focus on and the art is pretty inconsistent. Read Full Review
