    Natasha is truly the best at what she does but we're seeing that she may become second string to the title of Espionage champion. It's interesting the way we're getting new lore with new villains from Natasha's background. We've yet to see what Weeping Lion is made of and we're still getting people as obstacles from Nat's past. These are people that are going to manifest down the line in the series as boss battles for Natasha as well. This creative team delivers yet again and it's really no surprise. I got total trust in Waid and Samnee giving Natasha the treatment she should have gotten in her own movie years ago. Read Full Review

    Overall this is one of the most exciting titles on the shelves right now and its painful waiting for the next issue to be released. This team executes with more precision than a surgical team and hits their mark every single time. Black Widow is in excellent hands. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 27, 2016

    This is a damn good book!   The biggest compliment I can give it is I was never a Black Widow fan until now.  Mark Waid and Chris Samnee are giving readers a crazy combination of a deep story filled with mystery and intrigue that is also a quick read filled with butt kicking action.  I can't wait for next issue.

    If it wasn't obvious that Mark Waid and Chris Samnee are one of the best creative teams working in comics today, this series serves as undeniable proof. Black Widow #4 is yet another showcase for what's possible when two talented creators with a close working relationship join forces. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Jun 16, 2016

    Overall,Black Widow #4 is a truly great comic. Sure, I have issues with the pacing of this story arc, but putting that aside, the issue is absolutely incredible. Waid's dialogue is excellent, and the vibrant visuals of Samnee and Wilson are stunning. This is one of the best superhero comics out there right now, and one that you should definitely be picking up. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 21, 2016

    It's a complicated web for even the Black Widow to sustain, but with creators like Samnee, Waid and Wilson as her handlers, fans shouldn't miss out on this exceptional series. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Jose Murillo Jun 17, 2016

    Fans of the previous Daredevil run would appreciate this, and fans of the collaborative work of Waid and Samnee even more so. It's more detailed art-wise than Daredevil, but not as talkative dialogue wise. This book so far doesn't have anything much to say unlike the Daredevil run Waid and Samnee worked on. But for what it lacks in substance regarding story, it more than makes up for it with style. That's not to say it doesn't have any substance, it does. But Waid is playing the long game, establishing elements and characters of his story and possibly using them later. All we can do is wait and see. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Liam Budd Jun 20, 2016

    A tightly told story, trimmed of excess. A true, blue spy thriller but has enough to appeal to fans of the genre and newbies alike. Read Full Review
