Review Spider Women (Spider-Woman #6-7, Spider Gwen #7-8, Silk #7-8) – Robbie Thompson, Jason Latour, Dennis Hopeless…

Spider WomenThe Spider-Women of two worlds join Silk for a story too big for just one of their books! New mother Jessica Drew is taking a mentor role with Silk and Spider-Gwen, and the trio enjoys a brunch break on Gwen’s Earth-65. 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? Jess meets the Mary Janes, and Silk comes face-to-face with her counterpart’s family — but who’s looking after little baby Drew? It’s an epic that will shake all three Spider-Women to the core!

This was a fun volume. I really enjoyed the interactions between these three ladies. They work well togetehr and each bring something unique to the team.

The plot was fun and interesting and plays well with the different universes. Silk gets a really interesting role to play, giving her some well-deserved character development. Jessica Drew still stands out to me though as a favourite spider-woman as well as character. She is a bit older, and more mature, than the otehr two and her story arc as a new mom brings something fresh and interestisng to the whole superhero scene. Spider-Gwen just doesn’t do it for me, I’m sorry to say. Her own volumes have been disapointing to me so far, and she really pales next to these other two ladies.

An issue I do have with the plot is that the story lines of the three different characters try to overpower the others at times, but I guess that could be expected with this many people working on it. As can also be expected, the art style switches around… a Lot. And not all were to my liking really. I’m not a big fan of changing art style in general, but here it happens so much and in such extremes that the ladies just look completely different with each new issue.

Overall it was an enjoyable read and a good addition to the different series. Definitely worth picking up.
