After the success of Edge of Spider-Verse, Gwen Stacey returns in her own series Spider-Gwen. Gwen actually made it onto my Top 5 Comic Series of 2014, grabbing the number three slot, so it’s fantastic to see her returning for her own series.
Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi return to head the series, which will be kicking off later this month. If you didn’t get the chance to catch Gwen in action back in Edge of Spider-Verse and Amazing Spider-Man’s Spider-Verse, here’s the run down on her character.
This version of Gwen Stacey takes place in a different universe and is an entirely different canon. In this universe, Gwen is the one who got bitten by a radioactive spider and through that becomes Spider-Woman. Gwen is also member of a punk band, the Mary Janes and attends high school like any other teen.
Senior Editor Nick Lowe had this to say on Gwen’s break out role;
“It’s a rare character that gets the public outcry that Spider-Gwen got, from the sell-out of Gwen’s first appearance to the groundswell on Twitter we’re excited to bring more Spider-Gwen into the world with the creators who started it all!”
Great news for us, of course! Take a look below for a first look and preview of Spider-Gwen’s first issue.
