Huh. From the preview, I felt like the writer shoehorned an artificial contemporary Lindsey Lohan esque personality for Gwen that there's no actual basis for. It actually sorta irked me. It would be like if Harry Osborn started talking Shakespearian for no reason (okay, obviously not that bad, but still I wasn't a fan...). You can give her a personality by taking cues from earlier books and expanding it the best you can... not creating something out of nothing. But I'm probably in the minority of not being very excited about this book based on the preview.

Gwen was totally like that when Ditko was on the book. Stuck up, and someone who thought herself too good for peter, but liked him anyways. After Romita came aboard and Mary Jane became an actual character instead of a throwaway joke between Peter and Aunt May, Gwen was shoehorned into the kind, sweet counterpoint to MJ's wild partygirl outlook.
