In the aftermath of "Spider-Geddon", Gwen is ready for her life to calm down - but when is life ever calm for a teenage super hero? Mary Jane's perfectionist vision for their band is driving Gwen crazy, while Gwen's father is pressuring her to return to school. Add that to the daily trials and responsibility that come with being a web-slinging super hero, and you've got a recipe for a whole new era of radioactive adventure!

    After everything that has been happening in Gwen's life, I really do think that she earned a bit of a break. This series has gone a long way in reminding us that she's human, and any human has a breaking point. It's nice to see Gwen come down for a bit and try to get a balance going in her life.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 13, 2019

    McGuire is carving out a refreshingly unique corner of the world for Gwen. The characters personality in action in Miyazawas art is perfectly in synch with the characters dialogue. McGuire and Miyazawa have a good connection with the character which will hopefully suit her quite well. The team is slated to continue on the title for the next couple of issues at least. Itll be interesting to see where they take the character. Read Full Review

    This is a fine issue, but it doesn’t make me want to pull the book again. It’s drawn out exposition can make it feel like a step back in some ways, but Gwen’s world and supporting cast have always been what really made the book shine, so I understand that it was necessary. I just think it could have been better if there weren’t pages dedicated to Gwen finding a purse. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Forrest Hollingsworth Feb 13, 2019

    Well-crafted, refreshing, and emotionally resonant. But, a little too focused on an on-the-nose message, Spider-Gwen loses sight of the appeal and freedom of the Ghost-Spider moniker in the first real step out of Spider-Geddon. Read Full Review
