From the pages of Gang War, the original Spider-Woman returns to solo monthly action this fall

Marvel Comics’ original Spider-Woman, Jessica Drew, is back in the webs and getting ready to once again headline her own monthly.

Still the best?

It’s tough to say who the actual biggest fan-favorite Spider-Woman is at this point. It might actually be the alternate-reality wall-crawler Gwen Stacy, but even so, Jessica Drew’s is no doubt still a big name. Plus it’s always great to see Marvel actually using some the its deep collection of heroes that haven’t been at the fore for a while. It makes little sense to have the bench that the publisher has, and not actually use ’em.

As for how the new monthly will kick off, it’s the Gang War crossover event that will be the impetus for that, and bring Spider-Woman once again into the limelight. Spider-Man himself will effectively reactivate Drew, and send her on a mission to put the hurt on some Marvel villains tearing NYC apart.

But as it turns out, Spidey might be unleashing a momma-spider who’s not as nice as everybody remembers.

The Web of Destiny restored Spider-Woman’s life, but even Captain Marvel and Madame Web can tell something’s changed. After Viper engineers a deadly union between Hydra and Diamondback that’s about to tear the city apart, Spider-Man wants to recruit her for a new team to face an all-new foe – one who is powerful enough to destroy the city while burning Spider-Woman’s world to the ground.

Marvel Comics press release

Those are some of the early cover illustrations that you see in the gallery above, complete with a terrific looking kinda-retro title font. Penned by X-Men’s Steve Foxe and penciled by Carola Borelli, the first issue of the ongoing Spider-Woman series will be out and on the racks this November the 29th.
