Is Jessica her biological daughter? Who knows, and I think part of the fun is the uncertainty.
I think Maleev's art is perfect, and I can't wait to see what he does when the book inevitably tackles Morgan Le Fay (It's bound to happen at some point, right?)
BTW, sales for issue # 2 went down 10 thousand copies, and the book slipped from 45 to # 49. (Interestingly, if not for the 4 or 5 DC Blackest Night tie ins that surged, Spider-Woman # 1 would've improved on its ranking in spite of the sales decrease. I think the whole Motion Comics thing, though a great thing to give Jessica exposure and relevance, actually hurt the book's sales. I hope that after issue # 5 hits th stands, her sales will improve.
