What do you do when your quasi-adopted stepdaughter reveals that she's never had a birthday party, and doesn't even know when her birthday is? Well, if you're Janet Van Dyne - Original Avenger, Winsome Wasp, Pym Labs C.E.O. and Fashion Designer - you throw together the best last-minute birthday party the Marvel Universe has ever seen. But what happens when Nadia's fellow Red Room graduate Bucky Barnes, A.K.A. the Winter Soldier, crashes the party?

    On Comics Ground - Ian Cameron May 8, 2019

    The main plot of the series isn't advanced much in this issue, but the comic is so delightful to read it's impossible for me to hold that against it. Much like any great party, reading this comic the time flew right by and left me invigorated and with a huge grin across my face! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 8, 2019

    The fact that the physical action is used as something of a punchline to a joke is just one more charming, little detail in a really nice party that Whitley and company have thrown for their title character. As the series continues, theres a real dedication to this character that feels all the more solidified in an issue like this which fearlessly sidesteps the traditional format of a superhero comic book in favor of having a little carefree fun.

    I loved this issue so much, but I love Nadia so that is no surprise. Seriously, I dare anyone to read one page of this issue and not fall in love with her! Alti Firmansyahs art just makes it all look fantastic and while other books are busy with death and destruction, this book just wants you to smileand maybe hugand then smile some more.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin May 8, 2019

    Unstoppable Wasp #7 puts Nadia back into a position of sweetness and light, and it delivers all the charm her fans could want. It expands her social circle even further, though the full impact of the new connections remains to be seen. Plot development is not a priority, but this issue has both art and words to perfectly portray Nadia's enthusiasm and make it as infectious as possible. Read Full Review
