    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Mar 30, 2017

    Let's be clear, Chris Samnee and Mark Waid gave Natasha an incredible year. Marvel's never rocked espionage deeper than what this creative team has done with Black Widow. This series was the spy version of Ninja Warrior/Ultimate Beastmaster and it's what the Marvel Universe has long needed. Read Full Review

    The waterfall that Natasha scales during the climactic chase scene definitely ended up being a metaphor for my reaction toBlack Widow#12. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Apr 3, 2017

    We finally get a finale to this epic Black Widow story andonce again Chris Samnee and Mark Waid hit it out of the park with this book. Itwas an incredibly satisfying ending and gave me nearly everything I could wantfrom a comic book. Granted, there were a couple plot points that could havebeen done better but the book ultimately has been one of my favorites for thepast year. I hope Chris Samnee and Mark Waid come up with a new project becausewhen these two are together, incredible comics are made. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Mar 29, 2017

    It's sad to say goodbye but wow what a ride this has been. Another solid issue to finish off what has been one of the best series from Marvel in years. If you haven't been following it go pick up the previous eleven issue and check out this incredible book. Read Full Review

    Black Widow #12 is a phenomenal issue to cap off a phenomenal run that's a deserving candidate of an oversized hardcover in the future. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 5, 2017

    Black Widow #12 was an excellent conclusion to Mark Waid and Chris Samnee's run on Natasha Romanoff's latest ongoing series. As sad as I am for the series coming to an end it is great to see that Waid and Samnee were able to execute an ending that closed the book on this chapter in Black Widow's life in a satisfactory way. The place where Waid and Samnee leave Black Widow provides plenty of opportunities for other creative teams to do fun and exciting things with the character in the greater Marvel Universe.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 30, 2017

    Perhaps everything wraps up a little too neatly and quickly in the end, but this issue still offers a satisfying look at a deadly agent trying to atone for the sins of her past. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Andy Hall Apr 4, 2017

    I'm not completely sold on the tidy wrap up at the end, but I'd love to see Samnee and Waid take another turn at telling a Black Widow story again. This has been a fun series and a good focus on a character that everyone seems to love, but is so rarely used well. Read Full Review

    Samnee and Waid bring Natasha's latest adventure to a close with incredible panache. This "Black Widow" series will assuredly be remembered fondly for years. Read Full Review
