It’s an interdimensional tour for Gwen Stacy and the Mary Janes – but just as things start going right for Gwen outside of the webs, something unsettling is happening to her suit. Something GWENOMous…

    This is a great issue thanks to some well-plotted and paced scenes filled with good character moments and sharp dialogue. Your interest will only increase as Gwen discusses her alternate reality as a real place or seeing how evil the Storm's really are. Read Full Review

    I am really enjoying this series and how Seanan McGuire continues to take Gwen into a direction all her own. With the addition of the Storms, I am hoping we will see a line of more villains for Gwen to take on. This issue has huge openings for more in-depth story arcs for Gwen and that is exciting.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 19, 2020

    All in all, Ghost-Spider #9 is a solid, is somewhat slowly paced, chapter and while I'm not a fan of the art, I can see it's appeal and it's quality. Read Full Review

    What isn't addressed is the multiple appearances of Ghost Spider turning into Gwenom for the second straight issue. Does no one notice? Or do they just thing it's Gwen being Gwen? Obviously Gwenom and the Richards (including the looming Maker) are going to play major roles in Gwen's life in the issues to come, but for now our super-gal seems carefree (or as carefree as she can get).

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 14, 2020

    Ghost-Spider #9 is the strongest issue of this series to date. Seanan McGuire does a great job balancing out several ongoing storylines that Gwen Stacy is involved in. The continued development of the Earth-65 versions of Sue and Johnny Storm has been a major factor in the success of this latest Ghost-Spider story arc. Hopefully a sign of greater developments will be taking place on Earth-65 after so much time in this series was spent on the prime Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Following a long hiatus, McGuire finds strength in her exploration of Earth-65's mythology, but this causes this Outlawed tie-in to feel even more out of place. Read Full Review

    This is a weird title right now. The covers and the solicitations keep hyping up that something is going to happen with the symbiote suit, and we see just a tiny bit of that. It's not really going anywhere, and it's been a thing since Spider-Women. That's a shame because I find it a lot more interesting than what the comic is preoccupied with. That being the Earth-65 Johnny and Sue Storm. They're just not interesting (despite the Earth-65 Doom tease that I do want to see play out). Plus, this is technically an Outlawed book, but that hardly plays a role in anything. And Man-Wolf is still a threat. It just feels like this book is juggling too much and focusing on all the wrong parts. That's how you get an issue like this where at one point i more

    After excising the last of the Outlawed plot-tumor, Gwen turns the majority of her attention to the mystery of the Storms. Or that's what I keep telling myself: That this book really is mostly about the Storms. But the even focus on Gwen's many different concerns makes the story feel scattershot even when it's not. This is a book that's getting into trouble by loving its main character too much; we're a little too deep in her head and a little too far from the plot.
