  1. This is a Brian Michael Bendis/Alex Maleev title, so I knew it wouldn’t have Spider-Woman leaping ballet-style through a meadow of poppies, clutching a bouquet of daises. This one’s dark. And gritty. Yay!!

    Spider-Woman has had some hard luck as of late. During the Skrulls’ Secret Invasion of Earth, the Skrull Queen choose to impersonate her, so she’s now the public face of superhero treachery.

  5. This was a great story filled with lovely, dark art and non-stop action that came to a nice but somewhat abrupt ending. I wish there were more issues, but I’m glad to say this is the book made me a Spider-Woman fan.
