Jessica Drew hasn't been feeling like herself lately (she's not a Skrull, we promise). When the angry, irritable, and unwell Spider-Woman takes a simple security gig to help get back on her feet, she finds herself besieged by unknown forces out to destroy everything around her. What's wrong with Jessica? Just how DID she get this job? And who are these violent lunatics who keep trying to blow her up? WHO CARES? Does Spider-Woman have someone to punch? THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS.
An explosive new series that pushes Spider-Woman into new heights of action and adventure from the mad minds of Kar more

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 18, 2020

    Spider-Woman has had a few series before. Though shes had her moments, shes never been wildly successful on her own. Pacheco and Prez point Jessica in the right direction for a whole new series that gives Spider-Woman an appealing new direction as a rare mother/superhero combination that could prove to be interesting in the months to come. Its tricky to set a hero off on a new series in a way that feels fresh, but Pacheco seems to have everything lined-up in the right way in the first issue of this new series.  Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Mar 18, 2020

    Spider-Woman #1 wastes no time heaving its star and its readers into exciting, mysterious new adventures. The art is consistently gorgeous. The script is packed with immediately satisfying action, compelling questions for the future, and a strong protagonist voice. It's the Jessica Drew we know and love, but these creators are quickly and constructively making their own mark on the character. This is a great start: Tons of fun by itself, but also a persuasive hook for upcoming developments. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Carrie McClain Mar 25, 2020

    Spider-Woman #1 is a really fun first issue that captures the WOW factor by a creative team that is doing the most and having the most fun while at it. I haven't reviewed a Marvel book in such a long time, and it is certainly one of the books that is showcasing the best that Marvel has to offer in regards to talent. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alyssa Jackson Mar 17, 2020

    It's obvious Karla Pacheco and Pere Prez are having a blast, and with the writing and the art playing off of each other, there's a great mix of humor and quips, with the more serious moments of Jessica struggling against the murderous rage that's filling her. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Mar 18, 2020

    Spider-Woman #1 sets the current status quo for the character, with enough story and mystery to keep things interesting. Karla Pacheco has a good understanding of the character, making her feel familiar to previous iterations, and the art all around is dynamic and a fantastic fit for the story. Read Full Review

    The first issue is a little light on actual content, but the strong character writing and quality artwork make it more than worth a look see. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Mar 17, 2020

    This was an okay start for Spider-Woman. Karla Pacheco starts things light, but things get more violent for Jessica as the issue progressesand it's all her fault. That's not entirely true, as we get a mysterious cliffhanger that shows that, and while I am interested in seeing more of that, I was hoping for a little more out of this issue. Still, Pere Perez's art was great, and I think fans of Spider-Woman will enjoy this beginning. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Mar 18, 2020

    I have been a Spider-Woman fan since her very first series. Sure not every reiteration has worked, but Marvel have been going great guns with their female led books. As I have been looking forward to this book, I really wanted to love it, This is the first issue, meaning that it is no means the finished article. It will be interesting to see if the book finds it feet as Jess's best friend Captain Marvel did. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 23, 2020

    Spider-Woman #1 is a solid start to the latest ongoing series for Jessica Drew. Karla Pacheco established a direction for Spider-Woman that has a lot of possibilities to develop Jessica in new, creative ways. The generic nature of the antagonists that Spider-Woman goes up against is the only thing that keeps this debut issue from reaching its full potential. Read Full Review

    Jessica Drew is sporting some brand-new togs in Spider-Woman #1, but despite her stylistic overhaul, the storytelling in this new series feels surprisingly business as usual. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Mar 24, 2020

    Spider-Woman #1 was a disappointing read. Action fans will certainly enjoy the fighting in this issue. But, outside of that? There is nothing of substance to this issue. The lack of anything original or compelling makes Spider-Woman #1 quickly disappear into the mass of other superhero titles already on the market. Keep in mind that the price of entry for Spider-Woman #1 is $5.00. There is simply no way in the world I could recommend anyone spending that much money for so little in return. There are way too many other superhero titles already on the market that offer far superior reads for your money. Read Full Review
