The Rundown: Jessica’s faces off against a burglar. Later Spiderwoman goes on a multi-state chase to retrieve a stolen object.
Jessica is home with her toddler, when she is forced to fight off a masked assailant. During the confrontation, Jessica learns that her attacker is a hired thief, and has no idea of Jessica’s alter ego. Later, Spiderwoman battles multiple enemies as she chases after her hijacked property. In the end, an unexpected encounter leads to more questions than answers.
The Story: Pacheco has crafted a high-octane narrative filled with action and surprises. Her expert use of witty banter and cheeky dialogue is engaging and fun. After a story-line involving loss and transition, this chapter provides a delightful respite. The cliff hanger ending is very intriguing, and I am excited for the promise it holds.
The Art: This visually stimulating issue is heavy on character form. Perez uses modern, detailed drawings to depict a myriad of fight and chase sequences. And D’Armata’s bold, intricate color work creates a tone that perfectly suits the intense and fast paced environment presented in the story. I was completely transported by every page.
