Synopsis: Will Thanksgiving be a happy one for Spider-Gwen and friends? That very much depends on what crime lord Matt Murdock and his ninjas bring to dinner! It’s time for Gwen Stacy to stop running from Earth-65’s Kingpin of Crime — but Matt may have a thing or two to teach the budding Spider-Woman! Plus: The Mary Janes get loud, and Gwen spends some time with her ever-expanding social circle — including a secret mission with Captain America! She-Hulk! And her BPFF (best pig friend forever), Spider-Ham! But when Gwen and All-New Wolverine Laura Kinney undergo a transdimensional body-swap team-up, is this the start of a beautiful friendship? 

 

Favourite character: Gwen & Laura
Least favourite character: Matt

 

Mini-review: I still haven't gotten used to Kingpin!Matt Murdock yet and honestly I don't know if I ever will. Also I'm waiting to see if Gwen gets her powers back. And I can't wait for the next issues, which are Miles Morales crossovers?! Yes please!

But when nefarious spy organization S.I.L.K. and its leader — a certain Cindy Moon — notice the interdimensional interlopers, everything goes wrong! Can the arachnid adventurers find a way home, or will they be trapped in a world they never made? And if they do escape Earth-65, will their troubles follow?

Mini-review: Well that was fun. It was great to see the female Spider-heroes team up. Would definitely read more about this. Can't wait to read more about their solo adventures. Also loved the alternate universe Reed Richards.

Review: Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Vol. 1: Baby Talk
Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Vol. 1: Baby Talk - Dennis Hopeless,Javier Rodriguez

Title: Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Vol. 1: Baby Talk
Author: Dennis Hopeless
Series: Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears, 1
Format: ebook
Length: 144 pages
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis: Jessica Drew is a private investigator, a super hero and...a mom-to-be? Since we last saw her, Spider-Woman's got a whole new responsibility -now she's adventuring for two! Ben Urich and Porcupine are still along for the ride -in fact, half the time they won't even let Jess leave the car! How's a gal supposed to save the day when her friends are being all overprotective? Then, Spider-Woman will be in over her head when she gets trapped in an alien hospital. Jess is no stranger to unusual circumstances, but getting held captive by Skrulls in the center of a black hole with a bunch of extraterrestrial moms-to-be might take the cake! Expectations won't be disappointed in the mother of all Spider-stories!

 

Favourite character: Jessica & Carol
Least favourite character: N/A

 

Mini-review: I loved this. I love how Jessica is best friends with Carol Freaking Danvers and Clint Barton. The silent cameos from Hellcat and She-Hulk were great. I also spent so much time on the hero holiday party that had cameos from The Vision to Wiccan to Iron Man to Ms. Marvel to Squirrel Girl. 

I loved the alien hospital and I got to read about Skrulls for the first time, which was fun. And reading about a pregnant superhero was fascinating.

Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Vol. 3: Scare Tactics (Spider-Woman
Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Vol. 3: Sca... Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Vol. 3: Scare Tactics (Spider-Woman - Dennis Hopeless,Veronica Fish,Javier Rodriguez I read the first two volumes in this run a while back and had been meaning to catch up on her. The others are reviewed here: Volume 1, Volume 2, and Spider-Women.

I finally got a chance to read this one and it was a good send off to the run. I'm not so excited that her run is over, but this is a great set of volumes for this story. Spider-Woman is a well established Marvel character and though I don't expect her to be gracing the big screen any time soon, I also don't expect her to go away either.

As far as this volume goes, it showcases some of my favorite features of Spider-Woman as well as some favorite characters in her world. Roger, or Porcupine, isn't the best guy in the world but he's always been great to both Spider-Woman and Jessica Drew, so any trouble he's in, she's in also. Part of what's been great about this single mom superhero is her support system and that it's multifaceted. When one part of it runs into trouble (which is bound to happen when everyone is a hero, right?), there are more heroes to pitch in and give Spider-Woman the time to take care of business.

I'm not a fan of this cover but Hobgoblin does make for a pretty amazing bad guy. I'm not big into the Spider-Man comics so I never realized how big a bad guy he is. He really pushes Spider-Woman to the breaking point, even making her mad enough to get reckless and not think before jumping into a fight.

The best part is the end, though. They knew it was the end of the run/series for now and included a denouement that was really everything I could have asked for. It's great because I think we've all been there with someone that our friends don't really get until they see the magic in action. It also answered a burning question of mine ever since I saw Spider-Woman's swollen belly grace the cover of the first issue in this run.

It's been fun and I'm sad to see the run over, but I have hope that Spider-Woman will grace the cover of another series one day! If you hadn't checked out her series before, this is a great time to binge through its three volumes and Spider-Women!

Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Vol. 2: Civil War II - Dennis Hopeless,Javier Rodriguez

Spider-Woman's involvement in the Civil War II conflict is the primary focus of this volume, but the outer two issues aren't a part of the war. The first one is actually about Spider-Woman getting back out there, fighting bad guys and riding her motorcycle. It's a fun issue, but not particularly compelling.

Then it starts. She resists at first, not wanting to get in the middle of something at that level, not wanting to pick sides between those two, but the conflict proves unavoidable. Rather, Captain Marvel has a request for her that is out of the way, but important to the cause. She does the background investigations, figuring out whether or not the visions are accurate even when they're small while Captain Marvel goes around putting bad guys away before they have a chance to carry out their evil plans.

Things start to look like they're going one way until the big problem from Civil War II happens. That time "when one of the biggest heroes of all falls," and "the resulting trial of the century stokes the fire". That doesn't turn out to help Jessica and her little part of all this. It makes things that much more complicated.

I appreciate her struggles both before and after the big event. She has issues with taking sides in this, with whose side to take, with the surrounding events of the big hero who falls and with what it all means for everyone involved. I felt like her part of the story really brought home the struggle of the war because of her relationships with everyone involved. There was no side that she wasn't going to get mad at it, that didn't have people she'd mourn, that wouldn't end with hurt for her.

But then the war is over and we get one more issue. I really loved this one because she's trying to take a much deserved and needed day off. We all need to sometimes, especially when everything seems like it just exploded around you, it's important to walk away from all that stuff and take a minute to appreciate what you do have. Like your new adorable baby and a friend or two that didn't ask you to be a part of things that you didn't want anything to do with. A friend who is there for you. The last issue was mostly adorable and regenerative for the character, and I have to admit that it was those things for me too.
