I do not think that there can ever be enough books about anything and I say that knowing that some of them are going to be about Pilates.The more knowledge the better seems like a solid rule of thumb, even though I have watched enough science fiction films to accept that humanity’s unchecked pursuit of learning will end with robots taking over the world.-Sarah Vowell

Spider Gwen Vol. 1: Greater Power by Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez

Spiderwoman is still being hunted by the cops, but Gwen's dad is no longer in charge of the case, Jean DeWolff and Frank Castle are. Stacey is following the Lizard lead that Gwen had given him and with her help is finding evidence that something is out there destroying buildings and kidnapping pets.  Gwen takes down the Lizard, Dr. Conners, at the beginning with Captain America with her hands cuffed as Captain America is trying to bring her in.  There's a group of lizards that rush them and Captain America uses her spray that temporarily reverses them back to human form and ties them up. Falcon lets DeWolff by and she sees the whole thing happen.  Gwen gets away and no one is happy about this.  But Captain America points out the fact to DeWolff that no one but Spiderwoman had been looking for the Lizard.  That doesn't mean that the hunt is off of Spiderwoman.

While Matt Murdock is visiting Captain Stacy to give him his card and tell him he is there to help his daughter, Gwen has managed to get the cuffs off and is at the cabin with her friends where Harry Osborne has made an appearance after being MIA for two years, ever since Peter's death.  It turns out he blames himself for Peter's death because he didn't speak up when Spiderwoman was attacking Peter in the Lizard form.  So he joined the Army and learned to fight, then he joined SHIELD who "taught me to kill."  He plans on taking out Spiderwoman. He has become the Green Goblin.

So Gwen has the cops after her, one of whom is crooked.  Captain America is after her and so is the Green Goblin.  Who will catch her first and what will be her fate?  Chapter five is drawn with harsh lines and bright colors harshly painted. It slashes across the pages, which fits the in-your-face storyline being told.  I love the colors in this book. They leap off of the pages. This is a worthy successor to the last book and I can't wait to read the next one.
