The last two issues of Spider-Woman were basic, they just added on to the plot that is going on in the Spider-Verse, but we know little of Jessica Drew as a character, issue 2 had given the comic a bit more movement, but issue 3 just brought all of that to a stand still.
Spider-Woman is meant to be gathering intel for the Spiders and yet we see her not being very good at something that she is meant to be good at. She isn’t even trying to blend in, she isn’t trying to be like her counterpart in this world when she is trapped with Morlun – the man who is, along with his family – hunting down the other spiders for their power. This is a man who could easily kill her without too much trouble and she isn’t trying to get into character to learn more information about what he is doing and why.
There is also a few pages dedicated to Silk, showing us where she went and how she managed to get their, but when she reappears with other characters alongside her later on, it doesn’t make any sense why we were shown where she was because there is such a big jump between where she was and being with other Spiders again. Perhaps that will be explained in Silk’s own comic series, but for a reader it was confusing to see her and not know what happened to her inbetween time.
The issue wasn’t really exciting, in fact their were moments when you had to wonder if Jessica was just winging it and hoping to get out alive or if she just wanted to be reckless.
The issue was a poor performance after issue 2 and it does let down the whole series so far, I am hoping that by the time issue 5 comes around I will still be wanting to read it and that it will grab me in the same way as learning about the series coming out did.
