In the aftermath of “Spider-Geddon”, Gwen is ready for her life to calm down – but when is life ever calm for a teenage super hero? Mary Jane’s perfectionist vision for their band is driving Gwen crazy, while Gwen’s father is pressuring her to return to school. Add that to the daily trials and responsibility that come with being a web-slinging super hero, and you’ve got a recipe for a whole new era of radioactive adventure!

In the aftermath of SPIDER-GEDDON, Gwen Stacy has a unique ability all her own – one that will set her apart from other Spiders for years to come. But with that unique power, there will also come a unique – and grave – responsibility. One that Gwen will have no choice but to bear alone…

A SPIDER-GEDDON TIE-IN!
• As SPIDER-GEDDON rages on, Gwen Stacy of Earth-65 comes face-to-face with one of her deadliest opponents yet…THE GWEN GOBLIN!
• Presented with yet another world that’s lost a Gwen Stacy, Gwen-65 can’t help but wonder if she’s destined for doom and what that might mean for her family…

Enter the Age of X-Man. An New Take on Age of Apocalypse?

The Age of X-Man dawns…and the X-Men cannot stop it. After the apocalyptic dissolution of the X-Men comes…AGE OF X-MAN! At first glance, this looks like a flip of Age of Apocalypse which saw a future where Apocalypse had won and out of it came the character Nate Grey, X-Man. Is this the flip where Nate Grey rules?

Starting this February, something big for the X-Men!

• It’s Thanksgiving in New York! You know what that means… Feasts! Parades! And…BAD GUYS?!
• When the villainous VENOM threatens to spoil the city’s fun on Thanksgiving Day, it’s up to Spider-Man and Captain Marvel to set him straight and save the celebration!
• PLUS! A story from SEANAN MCGUIRE, writer of the all-new Gwen Stacy series SPIDER-GWEN: GHOST-SPIDER, starring a certain hoodie-wearing hero!

Review: Spider-Gwen: Ghost-Spider #1

It’s a whole new spin on Gwen and her world of Earth-65!  We pick up with Gwen right where we left her – fighting crime through her home reality, unaware that it sits on the precipice of interdimensional calamity! Someone’s gonna be late to band practice…

Spider-Gwen: Ghost Spider #1 picks up where the previous volume of Spider-Gwen left off and Spider-Geddon has lead to. Gwen has done her time and is figuring out the hole superheroics thing still when she’s recruited by Spider-Ham to take on the Inheritors again.

If you haven’t read Spider-Geddon #1 and especially this week’s #2, you’re going to want to do that. This issue dives right into what was revealed in that second issue.

Warning, there be spoilers ahead!!!

Ready?

Last warning!

In Spider-Geddon #2 at first it looked like Spider-Gwen had died but we know she was sent off to another Earth in another part of the multiverse. Which Earth? We still don’t quite know as we get to explore this new world as our heroine does as well.

And that exploration is part of what Seanan McGuire has set up as part of the fun of this first issue. We get to work through the logic and what steps to take as Gwen does exactly that. Who should she seek out for help? Who’s good and who’s evil? We meet one potential villain at least but when it comes to the multiverse, you never quite know.

Artist Rosi Kämpe along with colorist Ian Herring and letterer Clayton Cowles deliver worlds that feel a bit more like the upcoming dayglow of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in theaters this December. It’s an interesting style and while there’s points where I might have taken advantage of perspectives more, it’s an artistically good issue that’s entertaining to look at. There’s some issues with Gwen’s body herself that doesn’t quite look right when it comes to the human form but it never hurts the enjoyment.

The issue is a good one serving as a direct tie-in to Spider-Geddon and continuing the interesting events from there. A new world to explore always has me interested in seeing what’s going to be done differently and that has me wanting to come back for more and see what’s next.
