Spider-Gwen: Smash #1

Having returned to her home dimension, Gwen sets off on a tour when The Mary Janes are hired to be the opening act for Dazzler and the Uncut Gems who it turns out are more interested in having Ghost-Spider around than the other band. After so much multiverse hopping, it's interesting to see Gwen struggle to settle back down while questioning if home is still really home any more.

For action we get Gwen taking down a low-rent super-villain at one of the band's gigs, leading to some harsh words from the least-likable Mary Jane of the multiverse (seriously, can her death be a new canon event, please?), and then jumping into action at the concert when Dazzler's team is attacked by a Hulk. Seeing how this dimension's Dazzler is also a mutant, was our Hulk actually Rick Jones (who conveniently disappears) or a different threat. Either way, looks like Gwen has a gig, in more ways that one, as the tour continues.
