    Doom Rocket - Molly Jane Kremer Apr 13, 2015

    The art continues to be a stand-out: Javier Rodriguez's colors in the opening sequence, lit by the old standby of shadows cast through blinds, set the perfect mood"a brighter, not-so-noir version of the stereotypical PI's office. Alvaro Lopez's inks finely compliment Rodriguez's pencils, clean with added weight that matches the stylistically flat colors. Jessica Drew, in the capable hands of Hopeless, Rodriguez and Lopez, has become an incredibly enjoyable character, with a very human snark and silliness all her own. This is the best (and most) personality she's been given in recent memory, and the exuberance and high quality of this comic reflect that. A spiritual successor to critically acclaimed books like She-Hulk and Superior Foes of Spider-Man, Spider-Woman is a fun, thrilling and satisfying read. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Jaleh Najafali Apr 11, 2015

    Spider-Woman #6 continues to establish the mystery discovered in issue #5 while also highlighting the absurdity of Jessica Drew trying to help a bunch of villains. With Javier Rodriguez providing fresh, fun art and Dennis Hopeless writing with hilarity and intrigue, the plot points established here hint at future answers to this dilemma. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 9, 2015

    Yeah, still not digging the goggles. That's probably the worst part of the book, which means theres' not much to complain about here at all. While it moves a bit on the slow side, it's doing the detective thing and doing it well. The humor is definitely finding the right balance with her dry wit and deadpan approach to things, especially when dealing with these low level villains, and there's a couple of interesting class/money based nods given here that helps to soften things with the villains a bit, though not enough to make you sympathize with them in any real well. Overall, it's a lot of fun and definitely flows well, but I do wish that the opportunity had been taken to try and reinvent or modernize some of the characters while keeping their core there. But then again, when you have a villain like Kangaroo, can it really be done? Read Full Review

    Even if you're not a fan of the redesigned costume, it's tough not to be impressed by Rodriguez's energetic characters and dynamic layouts. He's just a natural fit for the Spider-person corner of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kelly Richards Apr 13, 2015

    Still a site for controversy, whether as a result of her costume, or her cover art, Spider-Woman continues to kick ass regardless of what you may or may not think. Coming strong out of "Spider-Verse" and two issues into the current arc, Hopeless, Rodriguez and Lopez are going from strength to strength with each issue, and don't seem to be showing any signs of quitting.

    All-in-all,Spider-Woman #6 continues the strong opening that Hopeless, Rodriguez, and Lopez have offered us. The art is unique and stunning, while the story remains very well-balanced and engaging. I'm thoroughly impressed by the work that's been done by this team and cannot wait to see what unfolds next month. Read Full Review

    I'm really starting to like this Jessica Drew. A huge departure from what we're used to seeing from the character, Dennis Hopeless' take on Spider-Woman has a lot of heart. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 13, 2015

    "Spider-Woman" #6 should technically be the second issue of the series, as the first four issues were heavily woven into the "Spider-Verse" event. That event informs the Jessica Drew central to this series, but, truly, the character zipping around on a motorcycle and punching bad guys is a completely fresh take. With two solid issues building up a high-suspense, entertaining adventure, Hopeless and company are giving Spider-Woman a new perspective and should be drawing in a whole new audience of readers. This second issue is just as welcoming as a first issue or a standalone tale, but the threads of the mystery stretch beyond these twenty pages. If you haven't been checking out "Spider-Woman" due to "Spider-Verse," adjust course and give this a go. It's not too late to join in and it looks like it's only going to get better from here.
