“I was a little nervous taking on Spider-Gwen because she’s such an iconic hero,” writer Emily Kim told me. “But the rich story and fantastic team made the process a success. I quickly fell in love with Gwen and her unique voice and I’m excited to see how she interacts with a whole host of Gwen clones.”

Said artist Kei Zama: “There are a lot of fun things about drawing Gwen Stacy and Ghost-Spider. I’m especially excited to draw daring Ghost-Spider fight scenes and come up with ways to create exciting compositions. It’s also a lot of fun to draw the expressions of Gwen Stacy. I am very happy to draw these new villains designed by Peach Momoko. I did not expect to work with her in this way.”
