• Even though, she's a mom now, Jessica Drew is still kicking ass and taking names as SPIDER-WOMAN!
•  This time, she's tangling with the baddest fish in the sea - TIGER SHARK!
•  FUN TIGER SHARK FACT: Did you know Tiger Shark has the DNA of both Namor the Submariner AND a tiger shark? Think about that for a second.

    Superior Spider-Talk - Jaleh Najafali Jun 6, 2016

    Dennis Hopeless and Javier Rodriguez are back together again to craft an action-packed issue that also highlights Jessica's home life. The confidence with which they tell their story is apparent in every panel and leads to a comic that should be on everyone's pull list. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jun 2, 2016

    In what is effectively an issue-long fight sequence, Hopeless gives us a microcosm of all of the things that defines the modern Spider-Woman, balancing as she does being a mother with superheroics and simply keeping her life together. Read Full Review

    Project Fandom - Nina Perez Jun 4, 2016

    Jessica's actual daily bumps and bruises may seem like an exaggeration of what real life parents go through, but it doesn't feel that far off when you're in the thick of it with middle-of-the-night feedings and self-doubt. It's another reason this series is so damn important. It normalizes all the crappy feelings you have as a new parent, because that shit is hard. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 27, 2016

    This issue never had a dull moment for me and the pacing was just great. It was like watching a movie, the way we go from action to comedy and the panel layout was never distracting and never overdone. This was another solid issue and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good balance of action, comedy, and character development.  Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chase Magnett Jul 6, 2016

    The final page turn of Spider-Woman #8 summarizes this issue beautifully. It is the reward and thematic heart of the series beautifully drawn and succinctly summarized. In Spider-Woman's own words from the third panel: "Easy never felt like this." That sentiment not only captures the unique rewards of motherhood, but of the creation of Spider-Woman itself. It's clear how much hard work and sweat is being put into every page of the series, but easy never felt like this. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 2, 2016

    With Spider-Women in the rear view and Civil War around the bend, it'd be easy to write off Jessica Drew's one issue interlude as nothing more than a one-off fill-in. Thankfully, one issue is all Dennis Hopeless and Javier Rodriguez need to tell an entertaining story, and issue #8 is yet another great example of just how far this series has come since its Spider-Verse inception.
