BONUS REVIEW by Brad Parkkonen

I still haven't got around to reading Edge of Spider-Verse #2, so some of the elements in this issue were lost on me, as it is a continuation. But despite that, I really enjoyed this first issue and am going to continue picking it up. Gwen Stacy is Spider-Woman, Peter Parker is dead and J. Jonah Jameson has branded her a menace. This issue is very much a throwback to the original first issues of Amazing Spider-man, introducing the Vulture and giving Gwen her first real nemesis. The Mary Janes' story, as well as Gwen's estranged relationship with her father add a good deal of drama in an exciting, fun book. Jason Latour shows he knows how to write a mouthy superhero and Robbi Rodriguez's art is absolutely astounding. The action is great, as well as some of the little things, like Gwen's spider-sense.

I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
