    Jessica's crew has been an unexpected delight. Who woulda thought Roger would end up not only working with Jessica and Ben, but become her most trusted babysitter as well? There are so many small beats that go a long way in effortlessly showing us how familiar they are. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan ofSpider-Woman,Captain Marvel, orCivil War II,Spider-Woman #9 is a must-read issue. We wondered where Jessica would fit into the crossover event, and we're definitely satisfied now. She's taken the middle-ground, and we hope she manages to stay out of trouble and danger now she's involved. Read Full Review

    Only the unflappable team of writer Dennis Hopeless and artist Javier Rodriguez could take a one-shot story about cannibalistic Canadians and turn it into a Civil War II tie-in. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Jul 8, 2016

    Spider-Woman #9 is an important issue if you love Carol or Jess, if youre caught up on Civil War II, and if you like a good comic that discusses the more heartbreaking parts of friendship. I was worried about the role Jess would play in the current crossover, and this installment gave me hopes about where she stands. The middle ground truly is a viable option, and Jess had taken her stake there despite knowing the potential effects on her relationship with Carol. With dark elements, action, and friends in conflict, this issue get a lot right about two of Marvels premiere heroes without being lost to the whims of an overarching comic event. Read Full Review

    Hopeless really knows how to use his characters to full effect, creating a great book ensemble. And adding Carol to the mix is always a treat. These are the sorts of personal relationships I love in my superhero comics. And I love superhero action when Hopeless and Rodriguez make it this much fun! Spider-Woman on skies chasing a Wendigo through the woods of Canada, while Porcupine battles a room full of Wendigo back at the lodge. Good times all around, and another awesome issue.

    Having a book with such a lighthearted tone while tacklinggruesome situations would be very intimidating for most writers and artist butthis book handled it flawlessly. Ultimately the rest of the book is set up forJess's role in the Civil War II crossover. The part of the book that stood onits own was very fun and entertaining as well. Read Full Review
