Spider-Gwen: Ghost-Spider #8

Spider-Gwen: Ghost-Spider #8 offers a fun standalone issue of a day in the life of a perky super-hero. There's also more than a little trouble for our heroine who goes to Harry Osborne for help with her new symbiote and looses control while dealing with a group of muggers. There's also the mysterious disappearance of the one scientist who may help Gwen with her recent troubles.

The real trouble, however, comes later in the issue when the Mary Janes performance is targeted by a bomber forcing Spider-Gwen to steal the spotlight from MJ (yeah, she's not living that down any time soon) in an attempt to save both her bandmates and the crowd (who mistakenly believe it's all part of the show) from the bomb.

Those who, like me, have missed the past few issues of the comic will find a nice place to jump on. Seanan McGuire provides just the right amount of awkward banter to balance the tough situations Gwen keeps walking into. Worth a look.
