    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 18, 2016

    Hopeless offers a powerful look at Jess' maternal side and the superhuman lengths she'll go to to protect the most important thing in the world to her. The final showdown is a thrill to read, but even that's eclipsed by the comparatively quiet but no less emotional aftermath as Captain Marvel enters the picture again. Read Full Review

    So the question, then, becomes this; where are we going from here? What's next in the story arc? And should you pick up Spider-Woman? I don't have a clue about the first two, but I can say that, without a doubt, as long as you're okay with some of the pregnancy tropes, you should pick up Spider-Woman. Read Full Review

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

    This comic should be read in quick succession from the previous one, the story just continuing instead of jumping a month. But that rapid feeling does not detract from the enjoyable story. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Feb 20, 2016

    This issue was really special for all the fans of Spider-Woman out there. Everyone says people are never the same after having a baby and that has yet to be seen with Jessica, but it is still early. Jessica Drew just keeps getting better with each issue. We still do not know exactly where Hopeless is taking her next with introducing a Spider Baby into the Marvel Universe, but it is going to be exciting. Read Full Review

    This relaunch of spider-woman has thus far dealt completely with one location and one conflict, but unlike other series with the same MO like GOTG, this comic wholly succeeds. The comics remains charming in it's humor, and awesome in it's art. The highlight of this issue is a two page centerfold that is kickass art-wise, and shoots Spider-woman to being one of the most badass people in the Marvelverse. Additionally, every beat played for emotion is satisfying. Thanks to great art and dialogue, Jessicas fears, hopes, and everything else come off with genuine emotion and heart. From when she fears for the first time that here baby is in danger, to when she finally see's its face, you'll be hard pressed to not have a real reaction.

    This new Spider-Woman book was something that I wasn’t really aware of before the first issue. But when issue one came out, I thought that it would be fun to read and Jessica Drew seems like a character that is really interesting and unique. Plus, when you add in the fact that she is also currently pregnant (LIKE SUPER PREGNANT) it makes for a really intense story. This arc has gone a way that I definitely didn’t expect, and this issue serves as a nice final chapter to the first arc, but that things are still really going to be tough fro Jessica and her new baby. I really like the look of this book- some of the fight scenes in this issue could hold their own against any other books out there. I love the giant splash page where Jessica is working her way through a whole battalion of Skrulls, with some really awesome and dynamic character positioning. I love the colors in this issue as well, because the Skrulls are wearing what look like neon Tron-esque bodysuits, Jessica’s weapon has some great chunky onomotopea, and seeing Jessica take a bite out of some Skrulls face- PRICELESS! This story was really fun, and also took a lot of strange turns. It started out with Jessica being pregnant, and trying to step back from being a superhero while she prepares to give birth. Then she takes an offer from Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel) to go to an Alpha Flight hospital where she can get some high-quality intergalactic healthcare. Then while there, Jessica is trapped in a maternity ward when Skrulls take the hospital by force, trying to kidnap a young Skrull prince. THE KICKER of this moment, is that this hospital isn’t just in some building on earth, or just on a spaceship somewhere… NO- the hospital is in deep space, and the Skrulls closed all portals to enter the hospital. I loved how Jessica and Dirk (the Skrull prince) got on as fast friends in this issue, and seeing how Dirk had a real personality was a nice choice, because he could have just as easily bee

    Two words: Surprise and consistency. This book delivers great artwork, great story, great dialogue every month. It is my favorite Marvel comic right now and I don´t even like Spider-Woman
