    Doom Rocket - Molly Jane Kremer Jul 22, 2015

    Though the next issue of Spider-Woman sees the series diving head-first into tie-in territory, the comic (and its creative team, thankfully) will return with a new #1 after Secret Wars. (But expect to see Jess, well"expecting.) Hopeless, Rodriguez, and Lopez have excelled at upending reader expectations with humor and exceptional characterization and storytelling " and will no doubt continue to do so with a preggers lead " but for now, Spider-Woman #9 is a short yet blissful reprieve from the rest of Marvel's otherwise inescapable crossover.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 25, 2015

    This issue was a blast! Hopeless has put together a really weird, really neat little cast here, and he sends them on some truly enjoyable adventures. I wish I could post that entire montage for you, because it's not only a lot of fun, but a great showcase of Rodriguez on art. Honestly, if this Spider-Woman series hadn't started with that terrible Greg Land Spider-Verse tie-in, I bet this comic would be way more popular. Hopeless and Rodriguez are having a ton of fun with this series, and that's what I like to see in comics. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Eve Jul 26, 2015

    While issue #9 of Spider-Woman may not be tied in with the greater events of the Marvel universe or even be some sort of high-stakes dramatic adventure, it's certainly an enjoyable, tongue-in-cheek read that glances at the reader and winks as if to say, "Who says you can't have some fun before the end of the world?"

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 23, 2015

    Spider-Woman has managed to stand tall amidst the sudden deluge of Spider-centric titles, and Hopeless and Rodriguez are a good reason why. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Jaleh Najafali Jul 28, 2015

    Spider-Woman #9 is a good break for anyone fatigued by "Secret Wars." Though the story is a bit weak, the dynamic between Jessica and Porcupine, as well as the art, make it worth a read. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jul 23, 2015

    Hopeless seems to have lost the momentum that he had in the previous arc, and half this book is Jessica and company aimlessly solving cases around the U.S. in a lengthy montage fashion. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 23, 2015

    With some solid artwork as usual and some fun scripting in places with the humor and self aware aspects of Jess knowing who she is, the book has its moments with what it does in the travelogue and the weirdness of it all. But at the same time, knowing that the end of the world is around the corner, this is a very mundane and uninteresting way to run out the clock on the book since it doesn't feel like it's really doing anything. Perhaps the next installment will have a bit more to it in order to justify it, but what's going on here doesn't exactly excite or ensure that I put the new post-Secret Wars series on my pull list, especially a $4 a pop.
