Issue Review
   March 15, 2016
Mark Gruenwald's first issue is an improvement over what went before. We've got a basic story, but the villain is interesting and he's got an unsettling method of attack. The ongoing romance, which fell into place in a strange way, starts to show cracks. 8/10

  -The Needle was interesting. I'd like to see his backstory expanded at some point.

  Definitely an extra star for a facinating freaky villain.

  Sewing and needlepoint, perfect for the female superhero (jk)

  Spider-Woman really has the creepiest villains.

  That was the first "creepy" villain in a long time that I found actually creepy.

  The villains are pretty good. Minus a star for the abrupt ending.

  This was the best issue of Spider-Woman by far. Very disappointed to see Needle is only in 11 issues in the order.

  The changing of writers was a big improvement. Nice to see Jessica stop an enemy herself. The needle was cool. I likes the relatively low stakes of the plot.
