    It?s been a while since I read any comics, really, so I picked this one up on a whim. It?s quite a lot of fun: Jessica Drew kicks ass and takes names even when pregnant ? even when she?s just had an emergency caesarian. That part isn?t realistic, but the bit about her learnin...

    Dennis Hopeless rocked this! And from what I'm seeing, not many post Secret Wars titles can claim that honor. I've heard so many complaints about the Mehness of things that I'm actually kinda scared to pick up anything with the words All-New on the cover. But while Marvel (in ...

    Spider-woman vol1(2015) (finished 2017-05-20, five stars) Seriously, does Dennis Hopeless have some kind of channeling ability? Telepathy? A form of OCD that lets him photographically observe and regurgitate human interactions? Cause this series of his is some of the easiest stuf...

    Oh man, this was so good. I love Jessica Drew, and there was so much Carol Danvers BFF-ness in this one! I liked how the writers are handling her pregnancy and motherhood, and (as someone who doesn't have kids) it felt very genuine about the mixed feelings that come with being in the c...

    I'm anti-meh. So can I say...smeh? The art was pretty great. When we were in the alien hospital, that was awesome. Very creative, very interesting, and some good art-based storytelling, which shows a lot of faith between the artist and writer, which is cool. The art does some of the...

    I don't think I've ever connected to a comic book character as much as I do with Jessica Drew. As I go through my own first pregnancy I have found that I am experiencing similar emotions to the ones Jessica Drew went through in this first volume. Only instead of being a crime fighting ...

    Jessica Drew aka Spider-Woman is knocked up hard and about to pop - but oh no, her OBGYN has been taken over by Skrulls (shape-shifting space goblins)! Superhero comics, eh? Preggo Spider-Woman is an ok comic but I didn?t love it. Why is her maternity hospital in a black hole - i...

    What a brilliant idea! Problem the first: having more comics with female leads isn't really all that diverse if they're all young and single, fighting crime in between romancing their preferred gender(s). Problem the second: Jessica Drew has felt like a bit of a superfluous character l...

    I was skeptical of this new storyline for Jessica. I wasn't sure about the whole space hospital hostage situation. I worried that this was just going to be a cheesy slapstick comedy gag that dragged on too long. But this book turned me around and convinced me this is a good direction f...

    I was SO WORRIED. SO. WORRIED. WORRIED. SO SOSOSOSOSOSO WORRIED. Jess has never wanted/liked/extensively interacted with children, has a MESSED up past, and is known for being a violent loner. Again, there's humanizing and character growth, and then there's totally changing who...

    The avenger with the BUTT! I always loved Jessica. She's not only hot but she's badass too. Her costume is also on point, so damn sick. She was a great side character so when I saw she was getting her own series I was pretty excited. Then I saw a baby on the cover and was like HUH!...

    Despite being called Spider-Woman, she is no female carbon copy of everyone's favourite wall-crawler as not only does Jessica Drew possess different powers than Spider-Man but her stories were less about domestic troubles and more in the field of espionage. Although she has been around...

    Fantastic comic. I had never really read any Spider-Woman comic before, but this one seems like it was a good enough place to start. We follow Spider-Woman as she?s six months pregnant (well, in the beginning). We don?t get a lot of background on the pregnancy but that is not re...

    Secret Wars is over and Jessica is now...pregnant? Jessica is forced to take some time off to have the baby, goes to an intergalactic hospital to see a doula and the Skrulls show up. This was a lot of fun. The final issues deal with the first few months of caring for a newborn. The...

    "As much as I'd love to crush these 'numbskrulls' . . . with great baby comes the crushing weight of parental responsibility. So mama will just sit here, choking back pride and keeping you safe." -- Jessica 'Spider-Woman' Drew, uneasily biding her time during a hostage situation, court...

    Jessica Drew. Once a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, once an Avenger, now a mom-to-be. With only a few weeks left before due date, Jess is tired, tired of friends worrying about her, of people kindness and condescending questions, but most of all, she's just so tired of having to give up parts of ...

    4.5 stars! I really enjoyed this! I really like Jessica Drew, she's so sassy, strong and a very interesting character to read about especially since I've never read any comics with her before. I love Jess and Carols friendship, I enjoyed the plot and i just had a really fun time rea...

    I'm absolutely in love with this run. Anyone who knows me knows that Fraction and Aja's Hawkeye is one of my favorite comics of all time, and this feels like a proper spiritual sequel. And that is mostly thanks to Javier Rodriguez's incredible art. His layouts are amazing! So dynamic, ...

    A witty take on Die Hard in space starring a super-powered pregnant woman. Also, features the best five page monologue on what raising a baby is like I've ever read. It should be read to teens in sex ed to encourage use of birth control. ...

    Great, great, great stuff. I absolutely loved this book and have never read a superhero comicbook like it in over three decades of reading comics. With my personal history, it made for painful reading at times and at one point I had to stop and have a cry but I came back because it was...

    So, I've exited the world of comics for quite a while now, and this was a pretty good re entry. Much like the recent hit comic series, Hawkeye (which is REALLY good), this shows the non-superhero life of Jessica Drew (I Think?), aka the Spiderwoman, now pregnant and unable to properly...
