    It looks dark and intense. I am a fan of Jessica Drew. I’m interested.

    Ahh, the good ol’ waking up in a hospital bed without any idea why you’re there cliche’… Still, the art looks really interesting and I like how well paced the layouts are. It will definitely be a title to check out.

    Although, her boobs increase by like two sizes once she puts on the costume which could be a side affect of her superpowers or something…

    Not sure which page you’re looking at there. I think its great. There’s an image floating the net of a cosplayer in this outfit, who is just beautiful.
    First story I ever read where the protagonist woke up like that, was in “The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant”. Wish someone would make three films of that one.

    I dunno…

    I love Spider-Woman, and I always felt she filled that niche that “The Defenders” filled in the MU (also Doctor Strange to a much lesser extent and/or any one-off, short-lived semi-occult character).

    More and more she seems like a copy of the Black Widow, and I don’t know if I like that.

    Did I mention she’s smoking hot?
