Because you demanded it, the character that took the world by storm is back and she’s better than ever for a brand-new ongoing series this October! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at SPIDER-GWEN #1 – coming to you from the red-hot creative team of Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi! Now is your chance to jump in with a clean entry point into Marvel’s breakout sensation of the year! The answers you’ve been waiting for are here: the secret history of Gwen Stacy & Peter Parker revealed! Someone out there has recreated Peter’s Lizard formula. The same formula that mutated him, branded Gwen a fugitive and ultimately cost Peter his life. Gwen WILL NOT let that happen to anyone else – no matter the cost. But with NYPD Captain Frank Castle and the Kingpin of Crime Matt Murdock still on her trail, that won’t be so easy. Plus, the introduction of Norman Osborn and Harry Osborn. What could possibly go wrong? The next epic chapter of Gwen Stacy’s life is about to begin. And you won’t want to miss the bombastic debut as she swings into comic shops once more in SPIDER-GWEN #1 this October!

Hope the team step up their game on this arc, the first was pretty underwhelming.

It is a good series but "taking world by storm" isn't entirely accurate when you shoved her down our throats and stuck her in every marvel comic like DC is doing with Harley Quinn

I just hope this stays in its own universe. I think losing its different universe location would take away from the series.

When the House of Ideas is out of ideas then alternate versions of all the popular characters will roam the comics.

If there weren't 324 Spider Mans already this might be okay.

What the hell? I don't pick my books up weekly, just go in once a month or two. They're reissuing this with a new #1 already?!?

"Because you demanded it" ...Seriously? Yes please, every 3 months start my comic over at #1, i looove the hype and having lots of #1 in my collection!!

Anyone able to enlighten me why this was done, maybe i'm over reacting. :p

That is the meaning for them '' We are forcing this STORM on you to sweep you away ... doesn't matter if you agree ! Storms don't care about your opinions ! ''

I mean we might not see every comment of the consumers but the sales figures not exactly show a 'storm'...rather a gentle breeze.

Sadly, these are just hype words that are used for things even before the damn thing is out.

I agree, it is hard to say things aren't "taken by storm" when you force them to be.

I like the concept of Spider-Gwen but much like anything, it is best when there is a limited amount to enjoy and savor, it is why some popular comic artists will always be able to sell their comics because they put out only a few at a time and don't flood the market

@stahlflamme: This did take place in the Spider-Gwen series not the SpiderVerse series, but when I read the desc of SpiderVerse it did say Gwen has a device that lets her travel between worlds so maybe she has it in her solo series too.

I was originally for her, but now starting over again crap. I'm honestly 50/50 with the idea.

I'm probably falling off this series. I started falling behind and despite good art, it just hasn't grabbed me enough to go forward.

That is a downside to relaunching all these titles. I personally don't like to quit series halfway through, but since titles have concluded it makes it a perfect time to drop off.

The only good thing that came out of Spider-gwen is the amount of cosplayers.

And that's pretty much it.

Last book had lame story and ugly-looking art. That's not a winning combination.

@novafett: after secret wars everything is starting over at no. 1. There were others that also didn't even make it to double digits before renumbering. Silk and Squirrel Girl come to mind.

Thanks for the heads up. Still pisses me off. Feel like they pull this kind of crap every 6 months of late.

@stahlflamme: Spider-Gwen will still be living in her own universe. She'll just have the means to travel to other universes from time to time. According to solicits in December from Spider-Verse, she has a device that allows this.

@docholiday: To be fair to DC, Harley is a popular character that sells which is why they put her in everything. Hell she wasn't even originaly a comic book character, so it's not just simply writer pride on there part but genuine greed.

Gwens a bit different. She is really just known for dying. So giving an AU Gwen Spiderpowers, really is more about the novelty factor as much as anything.

My own feeling is that one big factor between the 2, is that Harley is an Anti-hero while Gwen is all heroine so people are gonna find Harley more interesting to read about than Spider Gwen whose just Peter Parker but with tits .

They do pull this crap every 6 months. For people reading trades or buying back issues it makes it really difficult to collect. My girlfriend and I decided just to do mostly DC and Valiant because they actually have numbered trades where you can follow the story.
