Early last year was promised that the mashup character Gwenom would be moving from cover variants to an actual character in the Spider-Gwen series, sometime last year. That it would be Spider-Gwen co-creator Robbi Rodriguez' retirement from comics. And it would be a year long arc.

It didn't happen. But rather than being cancelled, it's been delayed. And it looks like it may be stealth-happening in Spider-Gwen #19.

Spider-Gwen #19 in April is solicited thus:

SPIDER-GWEN #19
(W) Jason Latour (A/CA) Robbi Rodriguez

A NEW STORY ARC BEGINS!
•   Matt Murdock, crime kingpin of NY and leader of The Hand, sends Spider-Gwen on a mission that hits WAY too close to home.
•  This mission will introduce one of the biggest new characters in the Gweniverse and set Gwen on the path to her scariest villain yet!

That biggest new character may be confirmed by Amazon's listing…
