    This run of Black Widow has made the character, whom I always liked, into one of my favorite in the Marvel Universe right now. Here's hoping the current creative team stays for a long time, and that they keep putting Natasha through her paces. Read Full Review

    The art is still good-to-great across every page, and its to the books credit to this point that such a minor thing could cause such a blip, but thats the trouble with setting the bar so high. This is a phenomenal issue for showcasing Black Widows strength of character without resorting to a lot of cliches and tropes. We get a Natasha who has a ton of nuance and character, but ultimately puts duty and her own sense of the right thing above what she might want, either in the short or long term. Read Full Review

    It's encouraging to see Widow get her own book along the lines of "what Avengers do when they're not fighting Chitauri," and Edmondson and Noto are taking her to the heights we all know she can reach. It's a beautiful time in comics for female characters to take the center stage in a male-dominated hero media. Widow has got the goods to deliver consistently compelling stories and Marvel has the ability push them; all we as readers have to do is simply buy the books that respect them. Read Full Review
