Spider-Woman 006 (2015)

Just quick replies to the reviews from the above site. This was a solid installment of a superhero adventure.

> The art continues to be a stand-out: Javier Rodriguez's colors in the opening sequence, lit by the old standby of shadows cast through blinds, set the perfect mood"a brighter, not-so-noir version of the stereotypical PI's office. Alvaro Lopez's inks finely compliment Rodriguez's pencils, clean with added weight that matches the stylistically flat colors.
It was pretty good art. All those details surely helped.

> Jessica Drew, in the capable hands of Hopeless, Rodriguez and Lopez,
Time will tell. Two issues so far. [Urich better NOT turn out bad!!]

> has become an incredibly enjoyable character, with a very human snark and silliness all her own. This is the best (and most) personality she's been given in recent memory,
This was an engaging and entertaining female portrayal here. Barely any of her characterization as an Avenger has stuck with me, so, if this is the personality she wants to evolve (de-volve?) into then it should be workable.

> and the exuberance and high quality of this comic reflect that. A spiritual successor to critically acclaimed books like She-Hulk and Superior Foes of Spider-Man, Spider-Woman is a fun, thrilling and satisfying read. Read Full Review
This ish gets a thumbs up.

> Spider-Woman #6 continues to establish the mystery discovered in issue #5 while also highlighting the absurdity of Jessica Drew trying to help a bunch of villains. With Javier Rodriguez providing fresh, fun art and Dennis Hopeless writing with hilarity and intrigue, the plot points established here hint at future answers to this dilemma. Read Full Review
It tastefully makes a horrific blackmail scheme a fun read. The mystery is fun too - in these times of what-does-it-matter-after-Incursion. It does still seem weird how Urich knew enough to save her from that oddly prepared trap.

> Even if you're not a fan of the redesigned costume, it's tough not to be impressed by Rodriguez's energetic characters and dynamic layouts. He's just a natural fit for the Spider-person corner of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review
The costume has it's pros and cons about it. No deal-breakers with it.

> Yeah, still not digging the goggles. That's probably the worst part of the book, which means theres' not much to complain about here at all. While it moves a bit on the slow side, it's doing the detective thing and doing it well.
Don't mind the pace at this point.

> The humor is definitely finding the right balance with her dry wit and deadpan approach to things, especially when dealing with these low level villains, and there's a couple of interesting class/money based nods given here that helps to soften things with the villains a bit, though not enough to make you sympathize with them in any real well. Overall, it's a lot of fun and definitely flows well, but I do wish that the opportunity had been taken to try and reinvent or modernize some of the characters while keeping their core there. But then again, when you have a villain like Kangaroo, can it really be done? Read Full Review
Curious who those other two running next to Kangaroo were. Also, curious if destroying the Spider-Web of Life in SPider-Verse affected her pheromones power since she didn't use it anywhere here.

> Hopeless and Rodriguez have done a great job revamping Spider-Woman into a solid, enjoyable solo comic. Read Full Review
It would probably be better if she (re)relocated to the West Coast... but that's not a deal-breaker yet either. She definitely needs her own supporting cast ASAP.
