    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 13, 2021

    Pacheco has been doing a brilliant job of bringing a hero to the page who has clearly been through a HELL of a lot already. Shes still got a passion for doing what shes doing without being bogged down in darkness and cynicism. Its a job; she loves doing it; she gets a bit tired. Never enough time with her kid. Pacheco is carved out a really specific niche for Jess throughout the first twelve issues of the series. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott May 12, 2021

    This issue is filled with vibrant colors and detailed artwork. The fight scenes are well done. And the contrast of red and blue in the fighters' wardrobes are visually appealing. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford May 12, 2021

    Spider-Woman #12 ends its story on an unexpected turn that will undoubtedly be a big focus for Jessica moving forward. Since this creative team has already shown such a depth of skill with Jessica's story thus far, I have no doubt what comes next will be just as great. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes May 14, 2021

    I really want to like this book, I really do. I am an old school Spider-Woman fan, all the way from her inception, to her Madripoor days, to the Bendis book through Hopless to the here and now. I understand that there is a corner of fans wanting a Jess and Carol relationship, and I kind of agree to an extent. I am sorry to see the demise of the Roger and Jess relationship, though the break-up is no big surprise given how little panel time Roger and Gerry have had in this volume. As it is, this book remains on my pull-list, for now. Read Full Review

    Well, Karla Pacheco broke my heart this week. Yes, she certainly did, but that's happened before (see Jessica's falling out with Carol for proof) and on that occasion, it ended up becoming a source of growth for the character, so I can only hope that this latest development will end the same way.
