@the_stegman: This is a case where I would love it if an alternate version of a character ventured across and made it into the 616. Yes we have a ton of Spider-characters but this just looks and feels great.

Or at least an ongoing set in this alternate universe.

I actually really like this art style despite how stylized it is, it's crisp and dynamic and I never feel totally lost.

And yes I'd like her to either cross into 616 or more exploration of her after the event.

I thought I'd be a lot angrier about them bringing Stacy back though...huh.

@fallschirmjager: Lol I knew someone was going to say something to that effect.

This looks great. I wouldn't actually mind seeing the stories of this character even after the event. I don't think I'd want her to cross to 616 as it'd feel like Marvel not honoring what Gwens death meant but maybe continue the alternate universe.

@granitesoldier: For added kicks they could reveal it's the same universe where Jane Foster became Thor.

Yep yep yep completely agree with all of this. I'd prefer an ongoing set in this alternate universe because I would like for it to be explored more since Peter seems to be evil, AND The Lizard, in this universe, but if she came to the 616U and THAT was how "Gwen is revived," I'd be okay with that.

@g_man: WOW. Just from the pages here and the brief teaser offered, I'm hooked. I hope that this Gwen doesn't turn into a throw-away character Marvel immediately discards after the storyline is over. I like that the Mary Janes (awesome band name) are playing a song based on the former Mrs. Parker's catchphrase.

I don't want her to venture out into the 616, I want her to have her own title and universe to stay intact! It would be like reading ultimate Spider-man over again.

Actually, based on the images I see it as Peter ended up dying while Gwen was trying to save him and that's the crime she's being hunted for. It's a reverse The Night Gwen Stacy Died but I think it involves her trying to save Peter from himself rather than another enemy. Of course, that's just my interpretation based on the preview. We'll have to wait and see.

But I sure hope we get a series with her; this is awesome! We already know she'll be appearing in Spider-Verse, in Spider-Woman, to be precise, if I recall correctly. Hopefully she'll survive and make it home. However, in the event she does die, which I'm hoping she doesn't, it had better be as a hero making a sacrifice to save someone rather than something like "random appearance behind her and thrust a hand into her and pull her heart out kind of thing" if you get what I mean.

@theacidskull: I'm just hopeful that Norman Osborn doesn't slime his way into THIS Gwen's bedsheets. But, lesbi-friends, let's not discount the other romantic possibilities, your Betty Brants and Liz whatever-she-was-before-she-married-Harry Osborn, your Deb Whitmans, and the requisite cold shower of Felicia Hardy. What was the derby girl's name? Stopped reading Spider-titles by then.

@g_man: I really hope this too. Even if it's an OGN or mini-series that focuses on her, I think she's a fantastic take on an old character.

I wonder if her neck is going to be snapped by the Goblin if he exists in the alternate universe.

Never been big on Spider-Man, but this looks pretty awesome. If it turns out great I'd love for this to be an ongoing series that takes place in a different universe from 616 or Ultimate. If it's a different enough take to warrant a series that is. New characters, new villains and not just only alternate takes on villians like it looks like they did with Peter.

Art looks great. That said, I hate her blue soles- It would have been better if they were just black like the leggings.

Also, if Peter was the GG instead of the Lizard, that would have AWESOME!

I like the idea, but I don't want to see characters from alternate universes to cross over or stay in the mainstream universe just for the sake of it. One of the things that makes those characters interesting is the world they're in and how they interact in them. Miles Morales for example, he has to deal with how his father feels about his powers, a world where the previous Spider-man is dead, and so on. Those aspects wouldn't exist if he was in the 616. They can always just continue the stories of those characters in their own worlds and show how they go about in a different world.

Also, this would be a great way to bring Gwen back to 616, and you could even play it up with the Spider-bride thing that Silk was brining for Pete. Think about it, Pete back with Gwen!

This looks great and everyone seems excited for the character. It's probably a sign she'll be killed off in the first issue of Spider-Verse.

Wait, so is Superior Spider-man back on going? 32 was the preview of Spider verse but this says theres a 33. I hope Spider verse is good since there hasn't been a good Spider-man event it a while.
