Issue(s): Spider-Woman #4, Spider-Woman #5, Spider-Woman #6
Inside the covers Spider-Woman breaks up another plot by the Brothers Grimm and then gets captured by a Punisher type vigilante called the Hangman, who ties her up because "women are weak, frail creatures -- easy prey for the depraved minds who inhabit our cities".
The Hangman is actually a pretty brutal guy.
So he puts her in his dungeon, which turns out to be haunted. Issue #5 is a weird horror-nightmare story, which turns out to be caused by Morgan Le Fey, who has captured Magnus (what happened to the Hangman?).
Then Werewolf by Night shows up, due to the tenuous fact that he once saw the Darkhold book that Morgan is looking for.
Meanwhile Magnus summons SHIELD agent Jerry Hunt, who is completely ineffective against Le Fey. Jessica defeats the evil sorceress with her venom blasts, which seems unlikely...
...and then immediately starts making out with Jerry, a dude that she has basically just met and who i'd guess has about 30 years on her. The whole thing is a mess.
Bill Foster makes a cameo in issue #4, providing picking up Jerry Hunt at the airport. The man runs Stark West, and they've got him acting as a chauffeur?
In issue #4, Spider-Woman gets thrown off a cliff by one of the Brothers Grimm, and manages to totally reverse direction and fly back up. She is generally depicted as only being able to glide, not actually fly.
Magnus and Jessica's landlady, Mrs. Dolly, apparently has a creepy minor obsession with dolls. This will actually turn out to be relevant.
