The Unbelievable Gwenpool #7 Review: Gwenpool NOW!

Congratulations, Gwenpool, you made it to your first company relaunch, but can you survive the experience? Judging from this issue, absolutely! After all, it has a pig in a Gwenpool costume, squid aliens, and the reveal of M.O.D.O.K.’s mysterious client! How does that not scream ‘fun?’ Okay, sure, it's not fun for the innocent pig.

RIP, Pig-Poole, you will be missed. I just wish you could have had a team-up with Spider-Ham before your untimely demise.
The Unbelievable Gwenpool #7 benefits from a lighter feel than the last issue, the return of Gurihiru’s amazing art style, and a new baddie! M.O.D.O.K.’s client has been revealed to be Vinnie, seemingly a new character to the Marvel universe. He wants the world to be completely rid of anything or anyone out of the ordinary, no matter who knows it. His introduction makes that quite clear, showing him to be very disdainful towards Cecil.

As for the aliens, they are still eager for revenge against Gwen. To be fair, she did kill one of their allies and post a picture of it online. Still, is it really fair to call them racist?

Either Donald Trump is secretly DC's Deadman, or this is a pop culture reference that I'm not getting.
The rest of the issue has some more development for the rest of the team, showing that they also feel uneasy about taking Vinnie’s offer. As for Cecil, he’s still not in the best of spirits (heh) after being killed and brought back to life against his will.

I don’t have too terribly much to say about the issue other than that. The pacing is well-done and it sets up a great three-way duel between the cops, Gwenpool, and the aliens for the next issue. The issue is fairly new reader-friendly, so I suppose that you could pick it up instantly, but I would recommend reading the previous issues first. That way, you would understand the reference to the disastrous team-up with Miles Morales.

The Unbelievable Gwenpool #7 is written by Christopher Hastings and drawn by Gurihiru. You can find it at your local comic book store.
