Ghost-Spider #10

Ghost-Spider #10 comic reviewAnother volume of Ghost-Spider comes to a close as the final issue in the series leaves fans with a cliffhanger and uncertain future for our heroine. Johnny Storm and Sue Storm finally show their true colors in Ghost-Spider #10 by attacking Gwen and threatening not only her life but that of her father if she doesn’t leave New York to its newest heroes.

Things feel a bit rushed and confused here, but that plays into Gwen’s own emotions after being blindsided by the Storms who use force, blackmail, and threats to push Ghost-Spider out of the way. Several parts of the ongoing story are left unresolved here. Does Gwen simply jump dimensions? What’s going on with that Gwenom suit that keeps showing up (but is never commented on)?

Ghost-Spider #9

Ghost-Spider #9 comic reviewMost of Ghost-Spider #9 features our spider-heroine mulling over the unexpected offer of friendship and team-up by Johnny Storm and Sue Storm. Despite her initial reluctance (and multiple warnings from her Spidey-Sense) Gwen decides to go forward with the meeting that ends with the trio taking down some smugglers (with what the Storms really want from Gwen yet to be revealed).

Returning to an ongoing theme, we see some father/daughter discussion about Gwen’s choice of after-school activities (especially given what her father sees as Gwen’s increasingly reckless behavior). There’s also plenty of Spider-Gwen swinging around the city and contemplating school and social media.

Ghost-Spider #7

Ghost-Spider #7 comic reviewGhost Spider takes a break from both the Miles Warren storyline and Gwen’s sabbatical in the regular Marvel Universe to offer a look at familiar characters whose lives are quite different in Spider-Gwen’s dimension. In Gwen’s world, Johnny Storm and Sue Storm were social media celebrities rather than fantastical heroes. They disappeared four years ago only to show up suddenly when no memories of where they’ve been all this time.

Like her father, and the world, Gwen has questions about what happened to the pair and if their return is also related to some kind of Human Torch who has suddenly appeared in New York. One thing is clear, the pair’s sudden appearance has been noticed by this world’s Reed Rickards who is known as The Thinker.

Ghost-Spider #4

Ghost-Spider #4 comic reviewThings seem to be looking up for our hero. Gwen has managed to balance life between two separate Earths well, although there are forces in both worlds looking at her with keen interest. Miles Warren‘s obsession with this new Gwen Stacy leads the professor/super-villain to follow our hero back to her own Earth (where another Jackal and Man-Wolf have their own plans for revenge against Ghost-Spider). Will there be a Jackal team-up? Or will the pair fight each other for Gwen?

Keeping busy by crime-fighting on both Earths (we get to see a little of this as Spider-Gwen defuses a hostage situation at a hospital), attending her classes, and even making band practice without a sweat, but despite appearances there are issues Gwen is just starting to notice (for instance her missing classmate).
