The new series begins in November.
This is good news: the “Gang War” Spider-Woman miniseries that was announced at Comic-Con is actually an ongoing series. Steve Foxe and Carola Borelli will continue to tell stories about Jessica Drew after the events of Gang War (which will be the subject of the first four issues).

She’s a spy, a street-smart detective, a superheroic best friend, an Avenger, a Spider-Verse-hopper, a mother and a survivor. Getting the chance to do it alongside Carola, as well as Eric Koda on our prologue, has been bioelectric heaven.”
