Top 100 Summer Comics… #73

Spider-Woman made a huge comeback in the last few years.

I am all for it. For about 15 years, she was completely misused, abused, and overshadowed.

When Jessica Drew finally came back, Bendis did it right.

#73 – New Avengers 23

This was an awesome example of that. After the events of Secret Invasion, I don’t know where this issue stands. Was this Jessica Drew, or was it some Skrull queen? I don’t know. I don’t want to. Bendis and Oliver Coipel did a killer job of helping define a character so flawed she seems screwy even by Marvel standards. Vulnerability is rarely a trait that defines a character, but the creative team did just that while maintaining a strong character without falling into any typical prat falls of female “weakness”. Dig it. Keep it up.
