*No Major Spoilers*

This action packed comic follows Gwen Stacy as she struggles with the responsibilities of being Spider-Woman and the dangers that come with being a hero in a society that sees heroes as the enemy. While she’s mourning the loss of her friend Peter Parker, Frank Castle is hot on her trail. He’s determined to find out the identity of Spider-Woman and bring her and her associates to justice.

This comic takes place in the alternate universe, Earth-65. So things are different from the comics that take place on Earth-616. I will not spoil how things are different in this story, I will leave that up to you guys to find out.

After the epic plot twist that leaves me thirsty for more, there’s a short story following Gwen and her friends The Mary Janes. It’s Halloween night, and to get their thrills they go to an abandoned amusement park, which was owned by Mysterio, and crazy hi-jinks ensue.

I have been wanting to explore the Spider-Gwen story-line ever since they announced it. However, with me having a temporary burnout on comics, I’m a bit late to the game. No matter, this thrilled me as much as I was hoping it would!

All the characters were well written and well used. I felt like Gwen Stacy was kind of a cardboard character though. I felt like she was only pushed to action when things got dire.

Even with its pros and cons, I still loved this story and its take on an alternate universe where things aren’t as they seem.
