    Spider-Gwen: Ghost Spider #4 is without a doubt one of the harder hitting issues I've read in quite some time. Yet I don't regret reading it. It gave me the sense of closure I craved from Spider-Geddon, while also making the events feel more important and real by adding weight and permanence to them. It was heartbreaking to see, yes, but it was so worth it and was a poignant reminder for the humanity behind our favorite masked heroes. Read Full Review

    Personally, I have absolutely fallen in love with Spider-Gwen: Ghost-Spider and think that this issue in particular is worth a BUY. The character development is so perfectly rendered on all fronts that this may be one of my favorite single issues of 2019. If that feels like a bold statement so soon into January, it's only because you haven't picked up this issue yet. Read Full Review

    The quick read does take a toll with its wall-crawling angst, but fans of Spider-Gwen will close the issue with an entirely new vision of the heroine in mind. Read Full Review

    Spider-Gwen: Ghost Spider #4 is easily the best issue of this young series. Seanan McGuire did a great job using the events of Spider-Geddon to tell an emotional story around Gwen Stacy. How she dealt with the deaths of Spider-UK and Spider-Man: Noir made the character development that was delivered have major weight behind it. Where McGuire takes the series from here will be very interesting to see. Read Full Review

    This was actually really touching, which is weird since I haven’t really been that invested in this title up until now.

    I finally made peace with tragic events from Spider-Geddon. Don't remember when I cried so much reading a comic book.

    It's more like Spider-Geddon farewell issue, than Spider-Gwen issue. But it is a good one, so I don't have a problem with that. And it still focuses on Gwen.

    Docking half a point for starting a new series with a crossover. But I think we are on our way to something really good. And fans of the marvelous Ms. McGuire wiil no doubt revel in her unique voice.

    Sort of like Man Without Fear #2, this issue really needed better art. This issue deals with the aftermath to Spider-Geddon, mostly mourning the characters who died. Karn gets a weird spider funeral on Loomworld, I'm not sure it really worked, what with each spider shooting their webs on him. But the rest of the issue works well emotionally, I think. We get plenty of Gwen just being so sad about those deaths and that really gives them some sort of gravity. Spider-Geddon didn't really focus on them. But in this issue, we get Gwen going to the universes of Spider-Man Noir and Spider-UK and breaking the news to the people that cared about them so that they won't have to go on not knowing. And Gwen gets these rad new costumes to blend in. And t more

    As for a Spider-Gwen issue, this was eh ok. As for a Spider-Geddon issue it was pretty good. Would no recommend this issue to anyone because it does nothing for the story and the at is horrible and the dialgoue is quite boring at times.
