    This is an excellent start to Spider-Girl's solo adventures. Best of all nobody had to be crippled in order for her to burst on the scene. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Nov 20, 2010

    It was another hardfought week on the Power Rankings where any number of books had good reason to be the #1 book. Only one book, however, could take home the Read Full Review

    I honestly wasn't expecting much from this debut, but Spider-Girl #1 proved to be one of those very pleasant surprises that come all too rarely in this industry. The book hardly carves new and riveting ground, but it does what it sets out to do well enough that it scarcely matters. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Nov 20, 2010

    Very good debut issue. Major villain issue aside, it hits all the right notes for this kind of comic book. Fun, spunky, teenaged heroine takes down villains with really nice art! Yeah! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 18, 2010

    The screaming cover blurb (and scene-stealing "Big Time" trade dress) aside, this book is fun, charming and a great heroic read that can be shared with the all ages scene quite nicely. My ten-year-old is an unabashed Spider-Fan, and this book has her tickled. As for me, I'm in. Swing on, Spider-Girl, swing on. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman Nov 17, 2010

    I'll fess up to being a little resistant to this book on account of the attachment I have to Mayday Parker Spider-Girl we've know for the past ten years or so. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - George Chimples Nov 24, 2010

    Spider-Girl #1 is a strong debut, setting up the sort of classic heroics that Marvel Comics has been somewhat lacking of late. It harkens back to the original Spider-Man setup without being overly derivative, and provides all the action, emotion and humor readers of all ages could want out of a comic book. It's just good, clean superhero fun, with organic relationships and relatable characters. It also has some of the best sound effects I've seen of late. The full list consists of: 2 beeeeeedeeeeeps, 2 knocks, whattooooom, kraakooooomm, whummppff, whumppff, krakkkk, yannkk, shunnk, krakkk, punktt, whoooooompff, clikkt, , fwuumpppt, ka-chink, thwakkkkt, and a kluumpppp. Spider-Girl #1 has twenty-one tweets, six pigeons, two face punches, two automobile break-ins, one attempted jewel heist, one attempted art theft, one purse-snatching, one car-jacking and one library destruction. Four and a half out of five stars. Check it out. Read Full Review
