Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse #1

Gwen Stacys everywhere. That's the gist of Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse when Gwen gets unintentionally added as an ingredient to a super-villain's plan to overwrite herself into classic Marvel heroes across the multiverse. The result? Spider-Gwen's world goes wonky, and in other times across other dimensions we have the creation of characters such Thorgwen (that was the best name you could come up with?).

Looking forward, it appears the series will be an interlocked number of What If...? style stories eventually rolled into one. Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse #1 offers a wonky set-up to allow Tim Seeley and Jodi Nishijima to play with any version of Gwen they can think up while Gwen is forced to fight and work with aspects of her own personality writ large. Is it worth $5 a pop? Maybe, eventually, for die-hard Gwen fans.

[Marvel, $4.99]
