Surprise! ‘Spider-Woman’ Gets A New Costume For Her New Series

Last month Marvel announced a new Spider-Woman series starting in March of 2020. With the announcement it looked like Jessica Drew was back to her old costume (variation of the costume she first appeared in), which she went back to in the recent Strikeforce series, versus what she was wearing in her last series.

Well, surprise! It looks like Jessica actually has a new look for her upcoming series. While the mask looks like her older costume in design, she is losing the mostly red costume element she had previously. The top part of her costume is the only real large red portion, and looks like it has Spider-Man‘s influence now. The costume was designed by Dave Johnson, and here is his design sheet for the new costume:

The cover by Junggeun Yoon also has been updated to show her new look (though the original look should still be available):
