    Also people are psyched about Spider Woman's costume change....let me guess, they changed it because of the recent "sexist" complaints, despite the fact Jessica wore that costume for decades and almost always looked good in it.

This is incorrect.

Before jumping into anything, we've got to talk about this awesome new Kris Anka Spider-Woman costume redesign. Jessica's one of the few Marvel characters that hasn't had any significant redesign since her creation. What was the motivation to give her costume a new take?

I kind of hate the old costume. [Laughs]

It was a two-fold thing coming in. I wanted a "Spider-Woman" book, and I wanted to change her costume. I debated whether to have it happen right away or after "Spider-Verse," and ended up choosing after "Spider-Verse." I didn't want people to be confused with all these other Spider-people. I wanted everyone to know that this is Jessica Drew / Spider-Woman. This is the Jessica Drew you've known for all these years. So it's coming out of "Spider-Verse" that we hit Jess' new costume and new status quo.

    Plus a Spider-Gwen series is coming along with a Silk series.....yeah okay, whatever. I'll give them 12 issues before cancellation.

So what?

Lots of good comics only last 12 issues, if that. Lots of bad comics last longer.

As for Spider-Gwen, the sales of Edge of Spider-Verse #2 would suggest that your prediction will prove incorrect.
