My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It’s the holiday season and Gwen Stacy has to spend this Thanksgiving without her Dad. He’s incarcerated at the moment because he turned himself in for helping Spider-Woman. Gwen accepted Murdock’s offer that her Dad had first declined but I’m not sure to what extent his expertise will help the Captain. Nothing more has yet been revealed as to his intent with Spider-Gwen other than the fact that his relationship with Ms. Moon granted him access to Gwen’s Spidey power-ups (doses of radioactive isotopes). Effectively making Murdock her only hope for continuing to be Spider-Woman!
This was a quick read as the main storyline ended not even halfway through the book as the remainder of it was made up of a collection of (five) tales featuring Spider Gwen. Stories involving She-Hulk, Koala Kommander, Captain America, and more.
I would say my favorite part of this book was the periodic reminder of how many power-ups Spider-Gwen had left, much like you might see the remaining power-ups in a video game. I already read the next book in the series Spider-Man/Spider-Gwen Sitting in a Tree and by now you may know that was the comic that made me interested in diving into Spider-Gwen to begin with. You can read my review here. I may just read it again before I read Predators.
