    Spider-Gwen #26 encompasses everything Latour and Rodrguez has been building since Edge of Spider-Verse #2 from Gwen's emotional build up to the actions of Gwen's great supporting cast. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Dec 2, 2017

    "Gwenom" is the most fun a symbiote story has been in a long time. Latour keeps the plot loaded with twists, turns, and interesting takes on familiar faces. Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi keep this coming fresh, unique, and undeniably appealing. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Joanna Robinson Dec 2, 2017

    The writing for this issue is spot on, especially between Gwen and Linda. You are so ready for the interaction between the two but the conversation is so well written you can't help but laugh, cry and get mad all at once. The art, as always by Robbi Rodriguez, is wonderful. Gwenom's look still creeps me out as she gets darker and darker in her mental journey. I'm also excited to see more Captain America and Gwen together. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Dec 1, 2017

    Overall, Spider-Gwen remains a visually fun comic that can draw you in with each turn. The problem now is, after this many turns, readers have a hard time remembering where its going. Here's hoping we recalculate our directions soon, because this book needs a clearer destination, and soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 4, 2017

    Spider-Gwen #26 is a solid issue that further establishes who Gwen is now as a Symbiote version of Spider-Woman. Jason Latour did a good job showing us what the Symbiote is doing to Gwen and developing her rivalry with Cindy Moon further. That said, the rest of the issue fell flat with the Matt Murdock, NYPD and MJs part of the story feeling like it stood still. There will need to be a better balance between all these sub-plots. If that happens it will only benefit this Symbiote arc that Spider-Gwen is going through. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Rob Ferreri Dec 1, 2017

    Hopefully this issue was just a pause in the action and things will ramp back up next issue. Not only was there a lack of any real action or impact it was actually kind of depressing. There does however seem to be some hope of action ahead and this may have just been a means to get there. I am going to give Spider-Gwenanother issue or two and hope things improve and I get caught in Spider-Gwen's web. Read Full Review

    There finally seems to be direction for this series. It also feels like a finale is coming and if the book ends soon, if those issues are as good as this one, I'll be satisfied.

    Could have explained the Cindy Moon connection better.

    Gwenom pings Cindy Moon (Earth-65 edition) for advice, and just outside her line of sight, her supporting cast is mobilizing to help her. The plot is headed in an interesting direction, I think, and there are some funny moments in this issue. But Jason Latour's dialogue for the crucial Cindy/Gwen conversation is a hot mess and Robbi Rodriguez's art is veering way too far into unfinished scribbles. I know vibrant sketchiness is this title's signature jam, but many of these panels look like half-finished placeholder sketches that the artist could/should polish up (a LOT) before the comic goes to press.
