Spider-Woman’s Old Costume Returns In April

by James Ferguson

The new Spider-Woman series from writer Karla Pacheco and artist Pere Perez has been an absolute delight. One of the cool aspects of it has been the character’s new costume. Unfortunately, it seems to be short-lived as Marvel has announced Jessica Drew is hanging up the new suit in favor of the classic yellow and red one designed by Marie Severin in Spider-Woman #11, due out in April.

“We’ve taken Jessica Drew through a gut-wrenching, action-packed wringer these past 10 issues, and we aren’t letting up as we head into our next adventure!” says Pacheco. “With the mysteries of Wundagore behind her, Jess is finally feeling like herself again, and longing to get back to a “normal” life. But what exactly IS normal for Spider-Woman?”

“In Issue 11 we see Jess setting aside her latest suit (for now), and gearing up once again in the iconic red and yellow costume – albeit with a few new touches and some surprises – courtesy of the always inventive Pere Perez.” continued Pacheco. “She’s safely home and ready to resume her life with Gerry and Roger…but of course nothing is that simple for the one and only Spider-Woman. We’re launching Jess directly into another over-the-top story, featuring incredible new villains, unbelievable action from Pere, and of course, me ripping everyone’s hearts again as I chortle with evil glee.

“Also there will be monster trucks.

“Can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on this, it’s classic Jessica Drew with the ‘Pacheco & Pérez’ twist, and honestly, it’s fun as hell.”

Although the new suit is going away for a bit, I hope we can get a Marvel Legends figure of it some time soon. It does look pretty cool. Spider-Woman #11 features a cover by Junggeun Yoon. It’s set for release in April 2021.
