Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew)

This is actually my first foray into the world of comic books. I found the art work to be very well done. I was disappointed that the panels are all in black & white. I understand that this cuts down on cost. It would have been nice if the title page for each story had been in color.

Also, there is no chapter list or page numbers, which I think would have been helpful, even if it's not exactly standard comic book format. This is a pretty big volume. On my second day of reading, the cover & first page started to come loose from the binding. So, overall, I feel that the quality of the book could have been much better.

The stories are quite interesting & Spider-Woman is an intriguing character. While she is an extremely strong & talented fighter, there are several instances where she proves to be an intelligent strategist, which is not something I expected to see.

Her love interests didn't seem to fit, they just weren't believable & were a little rushed...except for the one with The Shroud, which I wish could have been explored a little more. Overall, I enjoyed the book & will probably get the second volume.

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read
