    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Aug 17, 2016

    The action and intrigue continues in the latest issue of Black Widow. Chris Samnee, Mark Waid, and Matthew Wilson have made this one of my favorite books to read month after month. Black Widow is getting the attention she deserves, and it's all presented in a great package. If you haven't been reading this series, do yourself a huge favor and rectify that. Track down the issues and gobble them up. Reading this book is such a joy. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 23, 2016

    It's not a comic book for the squeamish, nor is it a traditional tale of heroics, but Black Widow #6 is perfect single issue, delivering in terms of story, of art and of dialogue, and setting in motion plot points that are clearly going to come back around in future issues. Read Full Review

    It’s great to see Natasha finally get some of Marvel’s top creative teams on her books. This is definitely a series you should not miss. Black Widow has become an A-list hero and this issue especially shows why she deserves the spot at the top. Read Full Review

    Black Widow #6 is a great comic. Samnee, Waid and Wilson are bringing their A-game to this title and this is, without a doubt, one of the best comics you will read this month. I can't wait to see where this gifted team takes this story. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 18, 2016

    Best of all, this issue makes a very substantial leap forward in Nat's ongoing quest to clear her name. Under a lesser creative team, that sudden leap forward might have seemed abrupt and unsatisfying, but Mark Waid and Chris Samnee remain in total control of their story. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Eric Bradach Aug 19, 2016

    The conclusion to this arc succeeds an abundance of achievements that other comics all too often don't. It throws a curve ball at our expectations for the climax and still makes it compelling despite its lack of action. It creates suspense and a satisfying closing even with the addition of mystery to it. That only increases our appetites for more espionage from this dangerous redhead. Fortunately this series isn't being cancelled post Civil War II. This collaborative team cannot be praised enough, everything they've touched has turned into gold and Black Widow is no exception.

    This isn't a game-changing issue, and the conclusion feels a little convenient, but all in all, Black Widow still continues to impress. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 22, 2016

    This issue did more for me than the last one, but it still left me wanting more out of the story. Natasha is always an intriguing character to explore, I just wish the story intrigued me as much as the character herself. It's not bad. It's just not fantastic either. Read Full Review
