    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder May 7, 2014

    An amazing debut followed by a great first arc has made this a must-buy and a book to eagerly anticipate. Its tone is even more geared toward espionage than Secret Avengers was and it is another great example of using the medium of superheroics to tell different, fresh stories. The art establishes the tone, the writing plays perfectly into it, the creators work amazingly together. If you were reticent about starting a new series, this one is absolutely worth it.

    Nerds Unchained - Magen Cubed May 7, 2014

    Bringing this inaugural storyline to an end, Edmondson and Noto deliver a satisfying conclusion that sees Natasha through her chosen loneliness to reach out to those around her in small but meaningful measures. Telling Isiah that she appreciates him over breakfast is a subtle shift from the woman who used to argue with the cat about coming into her apartment, but a telling one nonetheless. Such shrewd character development is a testament to the strength of this creative team, who have successfully grounded Natashas visually engaging action/adventure narrative in a cleverly handled personal arc. Noto always provides a stunning reading experience, but its the moments like Natasha and Maria talking in the rain, or in her apartment with the stray cat she wont admit shes adopted that are the most expressive, the most memorable from this book as well as this arc.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards May 7, 2014

    Black Widow #6 is a solid conclusion for the first real arc of the series, which also gets an interesting storyline going. The writing and themes are good, the main character is still well defined, and the artwork is strong like you would expect. Maybe it's not as amazing as previous issues have been, but it's still a good wrap up for the arc. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain May 10, 2014

    Edmondson ends the issue on a rather philosophical note as Natasha muses on what she is and who she is, and going into the next arc of the series, it is a nice moment to end this arc on, wrapping everything up. Can't wait to see what the next story brings to this series. Read Full Review

    I was worried about what would come out of this issue.Issues #1 through #5 of the All-New Black Widow title have had a very inconsistent quality " the worst issue wasn't all that bad, and the good issues were awesome. Since the last issue was the most displeasing so far, I honestly thought the quality drop was permanent. Fortunately, I was wrong. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Todd Frazier May 8, 2014

    Black Widow is a well oiled machine of a comic. Notos art is a wonderful visualization of the personal and physical conflicts Edmondson is plotting for Natasha. Both are crafting a unique title inside the traditional spy comic genre Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 8, 2015

    When the best part of the book is the couple of pages of epilogue material with Natasha and Isaiah, I'm not sure that says a lot for the book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson May 9, 2014

    Edmondson and Noto have done a fantastic job overall of establishing the series, and who the Black Widow is within that context, but this issue definitely suggests it may be time to spin the dial and change things up. With a solid base now established, it would be a missed opportunity not to see other shades of Natasha under Edmondson and Noto's direction. Read Full Review
