Force Works' public relations liaison Amanda Chaney then gives Spider-Woman a bunch of fan mail, including a bunch of creepy stalker-ish ones that Spider-Woman nonetheless finds "flattering".
The stalker later approaches Spider-Woman after she picks up her daughter Rachel at school.
Spider-Woman is shot. She's brought to the hospital, where we learn that the bullet only grazed her side, giving her broken ribs. She's visited by Force Works, and USAgent swears that he's going to hunt down the shooter. Then Rachel says that she remembers the shooter's license plate number. It turns out to be a rental, but it brings Spider-Woman to the airport, where the shooter is. And this time she takes the guy down before he can shoot. She almost kills him, but is stopped by one of her legitimate fans.
We never see the shooter's face, which is an interesting decision. Maybe the only interesting thing about this story, really.
Quality Rating: D+
Chronological Placement Considerations: The MCP place this between Force Works #5-6 and before Iron Man #307.

Amanda is a blonde in the regular Force Works series. Did the colorist get her confused with Wanda to make her a redhead here?

Wanda isn't a redhead.

According to the OHotMU, her hair is "auburn", so... reddish.
