Spider-Gwen is one of the best things to happen to the Marvel comics for a while. Spider-Gwen #1 debuted in February of 2015. She shares a similar story to the Peter Parker story that we all know but from another Earth. She has been a symbol and icon to Marvel in the last year more so than Cap's shield. Now, you can pre-order this icon and bring her home on Kotobukiya's website.

Spider Gwen remains one of my favorite titles. Part of that appeal has been the fabulous artwork of Robbi Rodriguez. However, with his impending departure from the title, I worry about the comic's look changing too much. I really want this book to go on for a while, but not if it's going to look like just another Marvel book.
Did you think that we had already done a Needless Character Analysis for Spider Gwen? The thing to know about her is that she is actually called Spider-Woman and is from an alternate Earth where it was Gwen Stacy that was bitten by the radioactive spider, not Peter Parker. She first appeared in Edge of Spider-Verse #2, which is available in multiple formats and has been reprinted several times, making it affordable to find a copy to read. She was created by Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi.

Spider-Gwen Volume 2 is the title we here at Needless Essentials have been waiting through the summer for. Secret Wars temporarily ended the first series. A void was in our hearts, but we remained patient. That patience is now rewarded. If you were worried the time away would take the magic off of the best alternate version of Spider-Man to ever come down the pike, then you worried for nothing.
