•  As the cure comes in sight, SPIDER-WOMAN puts it all on the line...then she crosses it.
•  With friends like OCTAVIA VERMIS, who needs enemies? Not Jessica Drew, but it looks like she's getting them anyways.
•  Even if Spider-Woman can find the cure, what will there be left to save?

Rated T+

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 6, 2021

    Pacheco and Prezs last issue features a battle with a giant beast. They follow that in the eighth issue with a complex interaction between hero and villain that plays to subtlety without compromising action. Pachecos success with the series has been a product of knowing exactly how to modulate Jess through her world in a way that allows each chapter to build stylistically on the back of the one before it. Jess has come a long way in eight issues. Its fun to see the progression, thanks to some very clever work by Pacheco and Prez. Read Full Review

    Spider-Woman #8 is a fascinating yet concerning issue, showcasing all of the reasons why this series is so captivating. The risk taking writing is perfectly supported by vibrant artwork, all of which portrays a different side of Jessica Drew. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jan 9, 2021

    I don't know what it is about the Spiders at the moment; a good well produced book with key story points can quickly lead into a mess of a plodding book. Eight issues in and I think that Spider-Woman is finally getting some traction as Pacheco's plot moves towards the final act. Read Full Review

    Everything i want in a Spider-Woman issue, though I feel Rhodey deserves better as another user said. Not that Jess wasn't justified...she was taking information on herself with her bloodwork, so she wasn't really stealing it?

    That opening shot belongs on a poster ! Making something so beautiful so grotesque ... I am glad King In Black has included this title into it's fold, or I would have stayed skipping it.
    The interactions between Spider-Woman and Octavia are pure comedy, and watching Spider-Woman toe the line looking like a crackhead while the apocalypse occurs is so fresh , I never thought I'd see that.
    What was expected was Rhodey coonin' out for Stark all over again. Come on , War Machine has always been cooler than Iron Man, I am tired of him being depicted aa subservient. That needs to change. Other than that , keep everything else in this story. Marvel has something here.

    With a concise admission that Jess isn't in her right mind, this issue teams her up with Octavia Vermis to do some burglarizing in Knull-covered New York. It has little to do with the event, really, and it's an awfully straightforward fetch quest. But snappy dialogue and art that handles characters and action with equal brilliance make this a very fun read.

    This was better than the last issue. It has almost nothing to do with King in Black though.

    Was a necessary issue, but definitely felt the weakest out of the rest, great cliffhanger though. Wow was Spider-Woman's ass looking FANTASTIC in her suit after jumping over Rhodes!

    Quick, the story is coming up short, what do we do? Oh, just do an action scene every 4 pages. I get it, superhero comics and all, but since this is a tie-in, use the free villain whose motivation you don't need to write(a symbiote dragon), not your great friend and partner or Stegron, who did nothing against them.

    It's also annoying how transparent it is that this is just a side-quest(collect the 3 things before progressing), with 0 pretense in explaining the need for said 3 things(assuming next issue won't explain, which, considering the writing quality of this series, i wouldn't be surprised if they didn't)
