We are moving right along very smoothly with our Women’s History Month and we are also moving along our Spider-Women Crossover event with the last issue in the series. We are checking out the issue that ties everything together between Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman, and Silk for the final event of the crossover series. Before we can do that though, we have to look back at what has already happened leading up to this. In the last issue, Spider-Gwen at the right moment during the confrontation between Jessica and Jesse Drew and told Jesse some revealing information. She found out that Jesse was bitten by a alien spider that almost killed him. For years, she used him telling him that she didn’t have a cure for him yet when in fact he was cured. In this issue, Jesse helps Gwen and Jessica in distracting Evil Cindy enough for them to pay her a surprise visit that starts and ends with an epic match up between them.

I am definitely going to be spending the time now criticizing the series and telling you how I felt about it as well as this issue. The issue itself was everything you would want from a final epic confrontation that is just action packed from beginning to end. The fight scenes were drawn very well and the series of events were written well as Evil Cindy displays just what she can do. There is plenty of comedy to go with the drama that ensues in the issue, but they did very well. This was an awesome crossover event from Marvel with some of the best female characters in the Spiderverse. My only criticism of the series is that we got to see Cindy and Jessica confront their doppelgangers, but we never got to see Earth-616 Gwen Stacy confront Spider-Gwen. That would have been very cool to see, but that doesn’t matter anymore. The artwork was amazing in this issue and any of the other issues in the series as well. The panels were easy to read and follow along with any of the issues. Check out the event, you will not regret it.
