Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez have built up a world around Spider-Gwen that has been a joy to read. As they close in on their final issue of their run, things heat up with Gwen standing trial. While Foggy dropped some major charges on her, she’s still set to do some time.

She-Hulk gets a nice appearance in this as Gwen’s lawyer and we see the two of them interacting. She’s not sure what Foggy is doing, but she tries to make the best of the situation for Gwen. It’s a nice moment and things go downhill from there for Gwen.

Gwen is sent to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s maximum security prison and Titania quickly shows her how things go on the inside. She beats Gwen up multiple times in the issue and you can tell it’s going to be a long year or two for her.

With the next issue being the last in this run, it’s unclear what the big finale will be. Cap comes and says that Peggy Carter is offering Gwen a way out, but she doesn’t take it. This leaves us to speculate what Gwen could have in store if she doesn’t want out.

Adrian Toomes is the big, hot shot in prison and even has the guards laughing with him. He was dangerous on the outside, but seems even more so now. This issue does a great job of making me want the final issue now, but sadly we’ll all have to wait for it.

Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez have built an interesting world on Earth-65 and I can’t wait to see how they wrap everything up. Spider-Gwen has been one of my favorite titles as of late and I’ll be sad to see it go next month,
