Jessica Drew is Spider-Woman. And a secret agent. And a spy. She does a bit of everything. Here she is protecting Silk with the help of Spider-Man Noir. They are traveling between universes trying to flee members of a group that are hunting Spider heroes. There are some nice twists, but some things go unexplained because of the assumption that you have read the other crossover stuff.
I like the different approaches that the creators were able to take on the characters in different universes. Spider-Woman felt like an afterthought at times because the focus landed on other characters. This is corrected towards the end of the book.
This volume takes place after "Secret Wars," but continues the story started in "Spider-Woman Volume 2: New Duds."
For me, reading this collection was pure entertainment. I have a one and a half year old daughter, so a lot of the parenting stuff was easy to relate to, and fun to see in the superhero world.
The character of Jessica Drew has a gruff personality, but she is fun in the mother role. Captain Marvel has a strong supporting role in this volume as Jessica's best friend, and many other Marvel heroes make cameos in this story.
I really enjoy Dan Slott's current "Silver Surfer" series, and this story kind of reminded me of that. They are both funny, quirky, engaging, and action-packed. Now that I think of it, Dan Slott's "She-Hulk" also had this feeling, though I think this is even better than that "She-Hulk" series.
