We didn’t do this on purpose, but we just realized that March is Women’s History Month and we wanted to help celebrate that fact by continuing to highlight the powerful women of Comic Books whether it be Captain Marvel, Miss Marvel, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Silk, Red Sonja, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, etc. So, we are continuing right along with another issue of Spider-Gwen as we check out issue number two, but let’s do a quick recap of issue #1. In the last issue, George has a change of heart about Gwen and he is replaced by Frank Castle for it. Meanwhile, Spider-Gwen thinks that Dr. Curt Connors is the man behind what happened to Peter Parker, but as she investigates the lizard monsters, she finds out that she is public enemy #1 to The S.H.I.E.L.D when Captain America shows up. In this issue, she is trying to prove her innocence to Captain America who currently has her arrested. The only thing is that the mere mention of the name of Peter Parker awakens one of the beasts. Meanwhile, George Stacy meets up with Ben Parker to tell him what he thinks about the murder of Peter Parker, but he may not like what Ben has to say.

I mentioned in the last review how things are kind of the opposite in this universe than what we have seen in previous universes. That could not be more true than when we see that Captain America is a woman in this one. She has a pretty cool twist to an origin story that is provided within the issue so you can at least know why. The issue definitely has some cool action contained within it that should keep anyone excited and it has it’s drama where it needs it which is why I like Jason Latour. There is definitely something to be said about having female superheroes that not only has them empowered, smart, and brave, but sexy as well. It’s like they are the perfect package as they can hold their own with the best of them. The artwork is phenomenal as usual and I’ve said it plenty of times, “The covers in my opinion are eye catching and the artwork inside of it is awesome as well. The panels are easy to follow along with so you shouldn’t have a problem reading it.” This is by far one of my favorite Marvel comics out there right now.
