Spider-Girl #53 cover.

I read three of these  Spider-Girl comics and didn’t enjoy them much.  I’m not a fan of superhero comics anymore and they have to be something special to win me over. The artwork by Pat Olliffe is loose and scrappy and works for the story.  I didn’t have any problems with it, except in A Touch of Venom.   The script was so-so too.  There were awkward quips and the whole family dynamic was unpleasant and not especially compelling.  The best story was A Touch of Venom.

Bedeviled by Tom DeFalco & Pat Olliffe

Spider-Girl encounters Crazy Eight and Dark Devil who put her through her paces.

A Touch of Venom by Tom DeFalco & Pat Olliffe

Spider-Girl encounters Venom who threatens her family.  The most involving of all the three stories, since her relationships with her family were believeable.  The artwork on the penultimate page was just annoying.  It was supposed to be an emotional turning point for the characters involved but each panel featured two alternating images.

Fun ‘n’ Games with the Fantastic Five by Tom DeFalco & Pat Olliffe

Spider-Girl gets mixed up with the Fantastic Five and characters from an alternate universe (the regular one), which made reading it confusing.
