    Pepe Larraz delivers some solid visuals that retain the expressive facial work of Clayton Henry and add an extra touch of dynamic, almost manga-esque flair that recalls the style of Stefano Caselli. The art is colorful and adept at capturing all of the rampant action. If the series isn't very deep or introspective, at least it's attractive, enjoyable, and doing its part to keep this particular teen hero in the spotlight. Read Full Review

    I'm really torn on this issue; there are definite redeeming qualities, but the writing isn't as strong as it has been in Young Allies, or even Avengers Academy. I'm going to hold off on a recommendation until the story progresses: this can either be a quintessential Spider-Girl story, or a huge bust. Read Full Review

    Thanks to incredibly strong art by Larraz and some nice character work and a fun plotting twist by Tobin, this is a good start to a promising event mini-series. Read Full Review
