    So much good stuff to unpack in this issue. It feels like Hopeless, Rodriguez, and Fish really had fun creating this story, especially Jessica's encounters with the criminals in each case. Every one of them was a full story told on one beautifully drawn page. Read Full Review

    The end of this issue seesCivil War II come into play even more significantly as her relationship with Clint Barton is explored. So now Jessica's massively involved with Captain Marvel and Hawkeye, two controversial figures inthe huge event.Spider-Woman doesn't rely on drama and tragedy to make for an interesting read, it's the adventurous and comedic tones that really sell the comic.

    Comicosity - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Aug 17, 2016

    While many current superhero comics are driven by high-stakes drama and tragedy, Spider-Womanstands out for its perfect mix of humor, adventure, and realistic relationships. Spider-Woman is one of my top recommendations for new readers to pick up any issue and simply enjoy. This creative team crafts a winning story. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 20, 2016

    The bulk of the issue was just general Spider-Woman fun. The art suffers a bit from needing multiple people on the pencils, but it's not too bad. And the individual little stories are good for a chuckle and a smile. This is quality Spider-Woman through and through, and I'm actually excited to see how Hopeless ties it all into Civil War II.

    Superior Spider-Talk - Jaleh Najafali Aug 21, 2016

    Dennis Hopeless and Javier Rodriguez create a solid addition to "Civil War II." Though the issue lacks the spark that results in an unforgettable read, their combined work confidently depicts the crossroads Jessica Drew has reached in regards to the standoff between Iron Man and Captain Marvel.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Aug 18, 2016

    While the issue still possesses many of the same comedic qualities we've come to enjoy from this title, there's also an undercurrent of tension, as Jessica tries to prove/disprove the validity of Ulysses' visions. Given her longstanding personal relationship with pro-premonition fan Captain Marvel, the resulting fallout adds a welcome level of personal investment that has as of yet been missing.

    Comics Bulletin - Jay Mattson Aug 20, 2016

    Spider-Woman #10 is another decent, if artistically flawed, issue that helps bring the conflict in Civil War II down to a more personal stage as Jess plays Devil's Advocate to Carol's bordering-on-fascist behavior. A vignette about an old Inhuman woman who gains reality-warping powers and inadvertently terrorizes her husband and cat through existential deconstruction brings some levity to a rather dour situation, and even though the art struggles to capture the tone, Hopeless manages to save the issue with excellent dialogue and emotional clarity.

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Aug 22, 2016

    The previous set up issue is followed by another set upissue. There's little that makes this issue important with exception to thefinally couple of pages. I actually liked the art a lot more than I did in theprevious issue but my enthusiasm for this series is fading fast. Read Full Review
