The latter especially is something I'm hoping the author tackles since, well, she's a public Superhero. Something tells me school life ain't exactly going to be simple. Ditto her band gigs since there's going to be a lot of people attending the concerts just cause they wanna see Spider-Gwen and don't give a crap about the actual music.
    That school thing is an error on the writer's part. Gwen was 19 when Spider-Verse happened. Thanks to that year in the slammer at the end of the previous volume, she's now at least 20, maybe 21. So shouldn't it be university, not school?

    Yeah, that honestly makes a lot more sense to me. But honestly it might just be a pahtayto pahtahto thing.

    Isn't university still referred to as school by people? Hell, I'm just glad we actually see her acknowledging uni. The first series bio tagged her as attending ESU, but she NEVER has a single scene there, which makes it seem like she and the band are subsisting on gigs to pay for themselves. Doesn't help that the few times we see them hanging out they're always clubbing or going for takeout.

    It's usually called college, not school.

    And Gwen wasn't relying on the Mary Janes for money, she did have a job.

    In the states, it’s usually university or college but that doesn’t disqualify someone from calling it a ‘school.’

    Ah yes, Gwen's arch-enemy: a squirrel. Here's hoping she finally gets proven innocent, cause her being blamed always felt really freaking dumb. Also, did the animation and character designs get better somehow or is that just my imagination? The teal spider on Gwen's back in particular is less tick-like and is much more angular and sharp.

    But Spiders getting unjustly blamed is a common Multiverse situation. Unless they want to take some heat when being a spy like Cindy/Silk did then they can't win getting bad public image. Whatever happens the Multiverse love hurting all Spiders Public Image in amazing, bad communication, not what it looks like, have to take some heat for the greater good, or 'these people are so thick' ways.

    Wouldn't be shocked when making this show they might read what the fans say and make changes plus advance when they can.

    Writer: Seanan McGuire
    Artist: Takeshi Miyazawa

    • Struggling to find her place as SPIDER-WOMAN in a city that seems to revere her and hate her in equal measure, GWEN STACY has taken matters into her own hands by becoming a hero for hire!
    • That should make her first date with Harry Osborn a breeze, right? After all, how many people could REALLY need Spider-Woman’s help, after all?




    Hero for Hire was not really the path I saw this taking, but I'm kinda intrigued.

    Why is the book called Spider-Gwen: Ghost-Spider if she's STILL called Spider-Woman?

    Spider-Gwen is mostly an editorial title to distinguish her from Jessica Drew, since Marvel still wants to market Jessica as Spider-Woman and hasn't yet figured out that just as Peter, Miles, and Otto can all be marketed as Spider-Man, so Jessica and Gwen can both be marketed as Spider-Woman.
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    You missed the point of my post. The Ghost-Spider part is what I was questioning. Apparently, she's not officially adopting it as her codename at all.
