    The Comic Addiction - Robert Tacopina Nov 20, 2009

    Now I will say that since I own the motion comic I already know where the story is going for this opening arc but it hasn’t ruined one moment for me yet. I still wait eagerly for each subsequent issue to come out as they continue to build momentum until we reach the eventual conclusion. If you are intrigued by the Spider-Woman character and are looking for some superhero espionage than you should be reading this book. Read Full Review

    It's a strange entry of Spider-Woman this month. While it's not bad, necessarily, it feels at odds with the previous two issues and could turn off some readers who were enjoying the trajectory of the character and feel of her title. Read Full Review

    This issue concludes with an unforgettable image -- the kind of situation that everything from "Secret Invasion" onward has built towards. And because Bendis makes the moment feel earned, and because Maleev makes it all look sad and powerful and charged with tension, it's a strong cliffhanger. This is good comics, whether or not it works when delivered on iTunes. Read Full Review

    I said earlier that Spider-Woman shares the same sense of uncertainty as to exactly where the story is headed that we saw in Bendis's run on Daredevil. However, whereas that book created a strong sense of tension as to what twists and turns Matt Murdock's life would take next--and gave its hero a strong enough characterisation that his reactions to the outside forces that were affecting his life would be as important in driving the story as anything else--Spider-Woman feels adrift and directionless, with the titular heroine stumbling in and out of difficult situations without ever really feeling like she's engaging with them. I'm still not really sure how the story so far hangs together (although I get a sense that Bendis might be trying to recreate the compelling double-agent status quo that was ruined when the Spider-Woman of the early issues of New Avengers was revealed to have been a Skrull all along), and if it wasn't for the strong visuals of Alex Maleev, I probably wouldn't ha Read Full Review

    I've really enjoyed Spider-Woman thus far, but this is issue is feels a little phoned in. Read Full Review
