    Superior Spider-Talk - Jaleh Najafali Apr 5, 2017

    Spider-Woman #17 expertly ends a series that has been filled with emotion, action, and just enough jokes to balance it out. Dennis Hopeless and Veronica Fish create a humorous yet heartwarming conclusion that reinforces the agency of Jessica Drew while also bookending one of the strongest series that Marvel has published in years.

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Apr 3, 2017

    Spider-Woman #17 is a satisfying ending to Hopeless' character-driven run. The issue celebrates the life Jessica built for herself during Hopeless' run and shows how much Jessica has grown as a character. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Mar 30, 2017

    Spider-Woman gets a warmer ending than Black Widow this week as she decides to throw a party in the down time she can spare and encompasses how this series has excelled by going against the grain of being a superhero book or even a detective story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Columbus Comics Corner Apr 3, 2017

    Dennis Hopeless gives us a bit of closure as he ends his run. The issue only left me wanting more in the way it ends. Not exactly sure when I'll see these things touched upon and if the next team can hit the same marks as this series. Only time will tell the future of Spider-Woman and her new family. Overall, still an enjoyable issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Mar 30, 2017

    Dennis Hopeless and Veronica Fish wrap up their run by essentially justifying Jessica's life choices to her friends and colleagues in the superhero community. And it's telling that Jessica makes her final decision based on the people closest to her, and not her acquaintances. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Mar 29, 2017

    Too much ofSpider-Woman #17's running time is given to repetitive slapstick shenanigans, but it is nice to see a superhero, like Jessica Drew, who has been through some fairly dark situations since her first appearance in 1977 (See Brian Michael Bendis' New Avengersrun.)find happiness in both her superhero and personal life as a single mom and friend. Dennis Hopeless, Veronica Fish, and Rachelle Rosenberg deserve credit for giving her and Roger fantastic, overall character arcs and also fixing her friendship with Carol Danvers even in the face ofCivil War IIalthough this issue isn't one of the series' better ones.
