Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane #1 Review

Written by Terry Moore
Art by Craig Rousseau

I just want to preface this by saying that Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane is not, I repeat, not, a 'girl's comic'. Yes, it's aimed at a female target audiance, but it is not a comic only girls will like.

In fact, the original Mary Jane and Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane series were some of the best Spider-Man comics of the past decade. Actually, that's not much of an accomplishment with the state of Spidey's comics for the past decade, but the point stands!

That said, as a long time follower of Bitches Love Spider-Man, the more manly name for the series, I was quite pleased with this first issue. I'm sure everyone will be able to jump in and enjoy this new 'season' (wtf happened to volumes?) and, while I'm sad to see the change in art from the manga influenced style, this still looks great and maintains the same feel as the previous series and I suspect this will appeal to the more mainstream comic audiances with the traditional art style.

While I did enjoy the issue, it was very Mary Jane oriented. Yes, it's her book and the previous volumes focused heavily on her, but we also saw more of the supporting cast and their relationships, such as Harry and Flash or Peter and Gwen. This issue felt like "Mary Jane, guest starring some other people that get a few lines, but only when Mary Jane lets them speak". I'm sure this is merely an introduction issue and we did see Liz, who was about the only character to break out from the MJ focus this issue had.

Verdict - Check It. Not the best issue of Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane, but a very promising start under the new writer and artist team. It'll be interesting to see what Moore does with the follow up issue next month and I'll save further judgement until then.
