Spider-Woman Goes Back To Basic in #11
After ten explosive issues, Jessica Drew’s hit solo series continues this April. Throughout this thrilling run, Spider-Woman has overcome HYDRA, confronted her nefarious mother in a wild family reunion, and learned more about her past then she’s ever wanted to. And writer Karla Pacheco and artist Pere Pérez are just getting started. The always-unpredictable saga of Jessica Drew continues in April and the titular hero will be suiting up once more in her original costume.
Designed by legendary comics pioneer Marie Severin, Spider-Woman’s classic costume is as timeless as it is iconic. Now, it once again returns in the pages of SPIDER-WOMAN as Jessica Drew suits up for her next mission starting in SPIDER-WOMAN #11.
Here’s what Pacheco had to tease about the new arc:
“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! 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. 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.”

Over the years, Spider-Woman’s iconic digs have been reimagined, and now current SPIDER-WOMAN artist Pere Pérez presents his own unique take on this timeless design. Seen on his new variant cover for SPIDER-WOMAN’s #11, Jessica Drew has never looked better. Incorporating a modern twist on the classic suit, Pérez’s design is a perfect look for the hero’s redefining new era.
Praised for delivering both the action-packed fight sequences and the chaotic family drama that Jessica Drew fans crave, Pérez recently signed on as an exclusive artist with Marvel Comics. Here’s what he had to say about working with Karla Pacheco and bringing Spider-Woman’s current adventures to life:
“I’m very happy about my exclusive with Marvel. Since I began working here I’ve had nothing but fun, good working experiences, and the chance to work with some of my favorite characters. Working with this team of editors and creators working on Spider-Woman is probably the best working experience in my career. The editors are not only giving us a huge amount of creative freedom, but also encouraging us to push things further. I can’t say anything but good things about the immensely talented Karla Pacheco and Frankie D’Armata. I’ll just say I am very lucky to be a part of this team.
“One thing I’ve been wanting to do for some time now has been adding my personal touch to a Marvel character, which I’ve been able to do now with this classic Spider-Woman costume update. It feels great to be a part of the legacy of creators who help shape the characters all of us love and enjoy.
“Aside from what you can see as the costume redesign, we have also included several surprise functional modifications that will also help to give a new fresh twist to Jessica Drew’s heroic abilities. Hopefully we are keeping the classic spirit of the character and also making the readers enjoy her adventures in a way they haven’t before.”
