Jolynn Carpenter is a model and actress living in New York City. A little over a year ago, she received an unexpected email from Alexander Maleev, the illustrator for Marvel Comics' Spider-Woman series. Alexander was searching for a model for Spider-Woman/Jessica Drew, and felt that Jolynn "fit the description perfectly", and asked her to consider helping him out.
Jolynn jumped at the chance, and became the current face of Spider-Woman/Jessica Drew and the rest is history! She says that it's pretty cool to be a super heroine!
I've become an instant admirer, and I also have to add that Jolynn really seems to be cut out for the role. Thankfully, she also agreed to my "humble" request to feature her as this weeks official "Gal" Friday, and while I think it's cool to have Spider-Woman hanging around the Catacombs, it's made even more terrific to know that Jolynn brings her to life online regularly for Marvel (see example; left).
What a looker!
