Spider-Gwen – Jason Latour (Graphic Novel)

Spider-Gwen, Vol. 0: Most Wanted? by Jason Latour My rating: 3 of 5 stars I feel like I am in the minority about this graphic novel (and character) as she is called the 'breakout character hit of the year' and I'm just not on board. I love Gwen Stacy, but this series just did not… Continue reading Spider-Gwen – Jason Latour (Graphic Novel)
