    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Mar 1, 2023

    Hallows Eve #1 is a delightful first issue. The character is new and is such a brilliant idea. Schultz has picked Janine up after Dark Web and Amazing Spider-Man and given her space to shine. Read Full Review

    Hallow's Eve is a good start to a series with plenty of room to explore its star character. Between Janine and her epic backstory, along with the incredible idea behind her powers that are the perfect Halloween costume, fans should find plenty to enjoy with this series. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of promise to be found in Godbe's story, just as there was for Ben Reilly decades ago, and Hallows' Eve appears well staged to seize upon that potential. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 1, 2023

    Overall, Hallows' Eve #1 is a fun debut. I'll admit I don't know a ton about the character and what little I've read she was an interesting one but not necessarily a leading lady. However, this debut is proving me wrong in that. It swerves in interesting directions while at the same time staying focused. While it's a continuation of what's come before, it's also focused on charting its own path. While it's doing that, it also captures a lot of what makes Spider-Man great, “good” intentions that often spiral out of control. We get a twist on that here which should make for a very interesting direction for the character and series. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Cameron Kieffer Mar 1, 2023

    Complementing the excellent writing is Michael Dowling on art. Dowlings character designs and layouts are fine but there are a handful of inconsistencies that hold it back from being truly great. The action scenes, while sparse, are handled very well and are truly a highlight, particularly an early scene when Janine goes into ghost-mode. The books concept is solid and its protagonists powers are cool and silly in all the best ways. Plus her design is super-cool, with her standard attire resembling a cross between Spidey villains Shriek and Hobgoblin. While the issue has its shortcomings, it still serves as both a great continuation and introduction to a character who has the potential to stick around for years to come. Read Full Review
