    As does a funny line from Agent Brand (funnier than her trying too hard sign-off, anyway) reminding Jessica not to be a spazz: "If I wanted someone bouncing off the walls I'd have hired Spider-MAN." Bendis ends the issue with Jess at last coming in from the cold and that works for the series as well. Read Full Review

    "Spider-Woman" #7 ends with a validation of the character and her place in the larger superhero universe, and though it may not have been originally planned as the end of her series, it's a fitting one. As she flies up toward the reader in the final double-page spread, she's ready to take on Marvel's new Heroic Age. Read Full Review

    In theory, this is how Spider-Woman should have operated from the beginning. It's the first time since issue #1 that this feels like Spider-Woman: Agent of S.W.O.R.D. again, and it's a fun little story that brings Jessica full circle. While she understands she's not alone in the world, she's still not completely rehabbed. That anger and bloodlust still exists in her. This book would have been a good outlet for that, moving forward alongside her involvement with the Avengers. Instead, Spider-Woman exists as a story where Jess ran off to Madripoor, bit of more than she could chew, and needed Wolverine & co. to bail her out. It reads a little strangely as a finite series, unfortunately, and the finale is a bit of a mixed bag in that respect. Read Full Review

    Its a shame that they didnt stick it out longer on the title, and that it didnt sell better (sales did weaken each successive month). Spider-Woman got off to a pretty slow start, but then again so did a certain cousin of a certain Kryptonian, and now her series is one of the best currently in publication at Marvel Comics Distinguished Competition. Maybe Jessica will get another shot, after all you cant keep a good character down, and Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman is a good character no doubt, she just cant seem to get a break. Read Full Review

    ' I think that comparison, though, is the main reason the book never gelled for me, and while I'm upset to lose another top-tier female solo book, I'm not that crushed that it's this one. Read Full Review

    Bendis and Maleev have done great work together in the past: their Daredevil run is still one of my favourite superhero runs ever, and I look forward to their new creator-owned Icon project together. However, I have no desire to see any more of their Spider-Woman, and so the news that the series is coming to an end doesn't bother me. I'm far more upset to have seen the likes of Captain Britain & MI-13 and Immortal Iron Fist fall victim to cancellation whilst they were still better than the majority of books being produced by Marvel. In the case of Spider-Woman, however, it looks as though the publisher might have been right to put the series out of its misery. Read Full Review
