Fantastic Story, Unconventional Style
25 November 2015 | by sirius-58278See all my reviews

"Spider-Woman, Agent of S.W.O.R.D." tells a story of a strong but troubled female protagonist who must fight through personal doubt and struggle to overcome difficult odds. There are several action scenes throughout, which show the potent abilities of Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman, but rather than being a heroic/action story, it's more of a spy/private investigator type of story. Brian Michael Bendis's writing is top notch, as is the voice direction and acting. The style of Alex Maleev's beautiful art matches the tone of the story well.

If you go into this expecting typical cartoon animation, you may be disappointed. This is not an animated feature, it is a motion comic. It uses art from the original comic (with supplemental animation), as well as the original dialogue and narration. This brings to the screen the tone and depth of the original writing and art, and as a result this doesn't suffer from the loss of story that usually results from comic book adaptations. Additionally, it has solid background music which helps set the tone and fits the dark art style. If you like comics primarily for the action you may be bored with the story, otherwise you will probably enjoy it.
