    The mounting sense of calamity leads to a pretty abrupt cliffhanger, but its a good one that gives me hope that this six issue series, though stylishly decompressed, will do the job of covering all the ground of a heroine who had several guest-appearances and a 50-issue series before her first death (of the many revivals since, this is the big one).

    Its still too early to tell whether Spider-Woman: Origin will deliver the goods as a super hero origin story, but if the rest of the series is anything like the opening issue, then it looks like readers are in for a hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    This is the very definition of a pointless revamp; it adds nothing to the original and is in many ways very much worse. Of course, Marvel get to fleece the Bendisites for a bit more cash, but if you have any interest in Spider-Woman, Id personally feel better pointing you to the Essential collection (which will end up cheaper) than this rubbish.

    By the time a nude teenage Jessica confronts Hydra guards at the end of the book, I was desperate for this comic to end. This is a terrible comic book on every level. Read Full Review
