Sleek, sexy and swinging the streets of New York, Spider-Woman is due to make an explosive debut when she’s introduced in Edge Of Spider-Verse #2, due out next month. Enjoy this little sneak peek…
From the Marvel press release:
Meet Gwen Stacy – Spider-Woman! Your First Look at EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #2!
As spider-powered heroes from across all universes unite to battle back the threat of Morlun, meet a young girl from Midtown High who learned that with great power, comes great responsibility. Today, Marvel is proud to present your first look at September’s EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #2, from critically acclaimed writer Jason Latour and rising-star artist Robbi Rodriguez! She’s smart, she’s tough, she’s charming and she can lift a car – she’s Gwen Stacy! Patrolling the New York City of her universe, she keeps the streets safe as the vigilante known as Spider-Woman! Just don’t tell her father, NYPD Police Chief George Stacy!
“This story sees Gwen at a real crossroads of her life,” says writer Jason Latour, in an interview with Marvel.com. “Spider-Woman is wanted for a crime she didn’t commit. So where as her life in costume before was a lot of adventuring and fun, she’s now being forced to decide what it means to her.”
