Plot Synopsis: Spider-Woman trades in her current costume for her iconic red and yellow costume. The classic fan-favorite suit will get some improvements to help Spider-Woman face a new set of challenges and some new villains after the rollercoaster that was the last ten issues, which saw her take on HYDRA and confront some ghosts from her past.
My Take: Karla Pacheco and Pere Pérez give Spider-Woman a much-needed shot in the arm and expand on the character's backstory in some new and exciting ways while also keeping the action-heavy throughout Spider-Woman's last ten issues. With the constant rumors of Spider-Woman making a live-action debut in the near future, it is good to see the character not only getting showcased in her own standalone series but bringing back her iconic costume and making its return significant.

SPIDER-WOMAN GOES BACK TO BASICS THIS APRIL!
Jessica Drew returns to her classic costume in a new arc starting in SPIDER-WOMAN #11
New York, NY— January 13, 2021 — 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 than 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.”
