    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 7, 2022

    Throw in a great editor's roundtable offering great advice, another fabulous interview by Anglique Roch, and you have yourself a fantastic anthology. This year's Women of Marvel is as good if not better than last year's edition. Women of Marvel 2022 is a genuinely moving, inspirational tale of bonding, strength, and empowerment. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Mar 7, 2022

    Women of Marvel #1 focuses on the House of Ideas' female heroes, courtesy of a roster of female creators. I highly suggest picking it up, especially if you're a fan of the Black Cat. Read Full Review

    Marvel's celebration of women and nonbinary individuals"both on the page and working behind-the-scenes"is back once again, and it's every bit as delightful as one would expect. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Mar 7, 2022

    I hope Women of Marvel continues to be an annual celebration so we'll continue to get stories about female heroes by female creators. This one is a mixed bag of successes, but definitely worth a read if you're a fan of Marvel's cast of female heroes. I do wish the cover reflected the characters inside, or vice versa (would've loved to see a Storm or Wasp story), but casual fans will catch glimpses of characters like Silver Sable or Shanna the She-Devil that they might not know.

    I really enjoyed! These anthologies are always very exciting for me because it allows me to read about characters I usually might not pick up and read the work of writers or artists I may be unaware of. Marvel Voices does this well. Women of Marvel does this well. I felt as though the Black Cat stories sometimes felt disjointed but overall this was an enjoyable group of stories. I recommend picking this up.

    The Black Cat segments are the best, though theyre disjointed throughout the anthology in a way that I don't worked as well as they thought it was going to.
    Some interesting moments scattered throughout focusing on characters that currently don't have ongoings. Marvel Woman are really top notch aren't they, Strange, Silk, She-Hulk, Spider-Woman, Ms Marvel are all having strong runs right now and Black Cat's fantastic run just came to a close. Not to mention all the female characters in other titles like Avengers, Black Panther, the X-Men titles etc etc etc

    The voices presented here need more time to grow and develop, the short stories hold a big task of (re)introducing these character, providing and original story, and often more

    Though it doesn't say "Voices" on the cover, it's set up like one of those. And par for the Voices course, this anthology offers good and bad ideas and good and bad storytelling, balancing out close to average.

    The Black Cat mini-strips are more miss than hit. Things are a bit better in the longer strips. The Jessica Jones strip and the Squirrel Girl/Black Widow team-up are both pretty good, though vastly different in tone. My love for the latter might be subjective. I think it's a perfect fusion of the tones of the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl and (the lighter moments of) the current Black Widow series. I'd like it more with different art, though.

    I'm all for celebrating women, and female characters. I just wish the way we celebrated them in comics wasn't usually so mediocre. There is obvious talent here, but I feel like the format limits what these creators can do, in a way that hurts the book.
