Spider-Gwen #1

Spider-Gwen #1 - Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez, Rico Renzi I'm not overly impressed by the first issue of Spider-Gwen. The story is somewhat confusing, I'm not really sure what's going on except that it's set in an alternate timeline. The characters I recognized were Gwen Stacy, Foggy Nelson, Frank Castle, and a demented version of Mary Jane.

The art is simplistic and lacks fine detail work, but is vibrantly colored which somewhat makes up for it. The biggest problem I see though is that eyesore of a costume. I don't know what's going on with it but it really looks bad in the panels. I don't even like the way it looks on the cover. It lacks dynamic movement, and I dislike the color scheme used on it. It would be a huge improvement if they got rid of one of the four colors and moved the V on the costume to a more natural looking placement either above or below the breast line.

Well, that's my impression of the first issue, maybe it'll make more sense to me a few issues into it.
