I think I read all of Marvel’s Spider-Man related books except for Spider-Woman and Silk. Now, before you start rolling your eyes, it’s not because they are women, I do read Spider-Gwen. I’ve just never connected with Jessica Drew and am not a big fan of Cindy Moon.
So one has to wonder why I am reading the Spider-Women crossover event when 2/3 of the characters have no interest to me. I guess the pull of that 1/3 is strong. And I am a sucker for crossovers. I also hate reading a book from a series that is part of a crossover and not read the other parts. After the break, minor spoilers and a look at the book that kicks off the event: Spider-Women Alpha #1. (Does it need the “#1”? Marvel insists, but I think it unnecessary. Anywho…)
