    Superior Spider-Talk - Brian Jacob Jun 17, 2016

    We all know that being a Spider-hero can suck now and then. While we've seen it countless times, this issue shows you how that can actually *feel.* Stunning visuals and an honest script come together for a book that leaves you cheering for the hero (right after you've given her a hug).

    SPIDER-GWEN #9 is a home run issue from Latour and Rodriguez. It firmly plants the book back in Gwen's universeand tells an emotional tale that's sure to pull at the heartstrings of longtime fans. At the same time, the issue's ending definitely sets up for big things to comeand makes it a good jumping on point for new readers. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Jun 15, 2016

    Overall, Spider-Gwen is the most fun web-slinger in the Marvel universe. Issues like this " dark, introspective, serious in tone " make for a necessary balance between the fun element of Spider-Gwen, and the depth necessary to frame those wise cracks and make for a multifaceted character. If you haven't read Spider-Gwen before, the time to hop on board is now. It's always right now. Read Full Review

    This is obviously well-worn superhero territory, but it's written well. And the art, the art is fascinating. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 27, 2016

    So finally, on to the score. This was not the best Spider-Gwen book that I've read so far. It did have some slow parts and a lot of inner dialog.  That aside, it is still one of the better Marvel titles you can grab right now. It was a good start to a new arc, but I expect better from this team and this book, and I am sure I will get that with the next issue.   Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Jun 16, 2016

    Gwen Stacy's new story arc has her in a reflective place: choosing whether she wants to continue as a superhero. Rodriguez and Renzi's art hits you like a battering ram, with energy and rich color on every panel. Spider-Gwen is a hero who battles self-doubt as she fights to make a difference, and that's why we love her. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chase Magnett Jul 8, 2016

    Spider-Gwen #9 is a stunning superhero comic to look at. It is confident in its approach and execution, showing off a world where you can believe in web-slinging spider-women kicking ass. That's the sort of superhero comic I want to read, but the style and genre do not excuse a lack of substance. A hero being drug through existence for 20 pages can only look so good before it fails to entertain. Spider-Gwen #9 has found a limit it must overcome or crumble beneath. Read Full Review
