    We The Nerdy - Kyle Simcox Oct 20, 2017

    While it is light on action, Spider-Gwen #25 does a good job at showing the emotional fallout of Gwens new status with the symbiote. We dont see much of what the symbiote is doing to her emotionally, but its only a matter of time before the damn breaks. Gwen may end up doing something she cant come back from. We can only hope that her friends help save Gwen from herself in time. Read Full Review

    For someone like me who is tired of characters who are based on other characters or proven formulas Spider-Gwen was a refreshing change of pace. What we are given is not merely another spider character, but a solid well-rounded character with a complex and interesting background. Looks like I'll be stuck in this web for the long haul.

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Joanna Robinson Oct 21, 2017

    I would never want to be on Gwenoms bad side after reading this. Seeing her emerge was great, but seeing her be evil is pretty bad ass. At the same time, seeing her struggle to keep some part of her tears at your heart strings. Latour knows how to keep the balance between the drama, a little mix of comedy and action.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Oct 22, 2017

    Spider Gwen's hyper-stylized art is extremely appealing, adding a layer of youthful spirit. This isn't just a fresh take on Venom through the narrative, but a unique take on the costume as well. Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi pull their own weight as far as keeping this book fresh and distinctive. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Oct 23, 2017

    Overall, a dizzying start to the Gwenom saga will hopefully settle down into something clearer soon. A lot of pieces are on the board, and while that's great overall, you can look forward to the series better guiding where to direct your attention. There's a lot long list of conflicts to place in an order, from the Mary Janes to the Punisher to Matt Murdock to the city's overall reception of Spider-Woman as a hero or villain. Not to mention Gwen's emotional arc as she struggles with herself inside the symbiote. I hope this arc can catch its footing soon, because the stakes are all there " Spider-Gwen only needs to stick the landing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 19, 2017

    It was inevitable that this series was going to tackle its own take on the Black Costume storyline at some point. That said, now isn't necessarily the best time given how overexposed Venom is elsewhere in the Marvel U. And there's definitely a sense that this book is competing with Mike Costa's venom series for attention, especially given the emphasis on the interplay between Gwen and her new symbiote partner.

    A return to form, even if it is a different form, for the ever changing Gwenom. Hopefully we dont ever have to see the Rhino again. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Sep 25, 2017

    So, if youre newer to comic books, Spider-Gwen is actually a pretty solid entry point. If you are a comic-reading veteran and arent especially interested in the character of Gwen Stacys Spider Woman, then its definitely not for you. Overall, it is a competently put together comic, but its unfortunately been put in the position of treading the old territory of a predecessor. Read Full Review

    A visually stunning issue is hampered by a weak and convenient resolution to a major conflict. Read Full Review
