    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 18, 2019

    After all the weird specifics of Gwen's life throughout the past several issues, it's nice to see McGuire and Miyazawa handling a more traditional spider-story. Gwen is looking good as the trap slowly snaps shut on her, and she struggles to find a way out. The series could launch in a number of different directions for her here. It'll be interesting to see what McGuire comes up in 2020.  Read Full Review

    While not taking place as predominantly in Earth-616 as I thought it would Ghost-Spider continues to tell these personal stories of Gwen Stacy and her own life. Ghost-Spider #5 livens things up in this current story arc and is certainly closer to that darker tone we are used to seeing from this character. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Dec 18, 2019

    Ghost-Spider #5 was another fascinating installment in Gwen's adventure. There's something so satisfying about seeing the consequences of Gwen's time spent on two different Earths. Not to mention that this is a plot that has been building for quite some time. Read Full Review

    I thought this issue was interesting enough as it was pretty much a set-up for events to come. We got some nice action with some decent dialogue that kept the reader in the loop. the pacing was good and the art fine. I would read the next issue to find out what happens next. Read Full Review

    Ghost Spider #5 moves the story from point A to point B with some rather forgettable character beats, but succeeds when playing with recognizable Spider tropes. Read Full Review

    These should be fun characters, but they're written in a way that tries to emulate those that have come before, and it lands with a thud. Read Full Review
