    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Oct 21, 2020

    Once the battle is over, Spider-Woman #5 wraps up with a few short moments showing Jessica as she struggles to come to terms with what her next move needs to be and whether she will have to face it alone. Where this issue finally leaves off has my anticipation for next months story maxed out. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 20, 2020

    Spider-Woman #5 ends Prez and Pacheco's epic run with a whole lot of action in an exciting finish. It's a deeply emotional story for Spider-Woman as she deals with dysfunction, but also a bit of closure. As a milestone issue, it closes out well, reminding us this character has come far over the years and there's so much hope and a bright future for the character going forward. Under Pacheco and Prez, Spider-Woman is as exciting as ever with a bright future in front of it. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 21, 2020

    The leap into the next issue that hits at the end of #5 feels like a bit of a lurch. This is odd as Pacheco has done such a good job of making sure that the pacing has been quite nearly perfect throughout the past couple of issues. The sudden journey out to meet with Captain Marvel is a jaunty lead-in to next issue, but it feels ever-so-slightly at odds with the dramatic weight of the rest of the issue. Theres almost nothing connecting the end of one issue with the beginning of the next. Its nice to get a preview of whats coming next month, though. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cat Wyatt Oct 21, 2020

    Spider-Woman #5 is emotional and bold, pushing Jessica Drew to new limits, all while throwing family drama right in her face. This combination suits her character, as does the artwork that supports her story so far. Read Full Review

    Writer Karla Pacheco loves to put Jessica Drew through the wringer, and while it's crushing some times, it does make for some fantastic comics. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 24, 2020

    Craziness abound as the first story wraps up more so with mysteries to come than concrete conclusions. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Oct 22, 2020

    I love Jessica Drew. I have a load of her original run.; I have her return in Avengers and she is fantastic in Madripoor. Consider the Dennis Hopeless run and you have a character that has managed to have a a sustained longevity, if not always her own book, in the Marvel Universe. Now there are two Spider-Women kicking around; the one in this book and the really well written one over in the Captain Marvel book. You can can take your pick of which you prefer. Read Full Review
