    Comicosity - Aaron Long Oct 19, 2016

    Black Widow #7 is a great start to what looks to be a very interesting arc. Samnee, Waid and Wilson do not miss a beat in this one and it will easily be one of your best reads this week. Sign me up for more “No More Secrets” cause this is one of the best damn comics around. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Oct 19, 2016

    I would argue that this issue is the best comic I have read all year and one of the best series as well. If you haven't been following this series you definitely need to start picking it up. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Oct 20, 2016

    This issue comes across as what we've been waiting for all along with this new series for Black Widow. We got grit, grime, and most of all we got bars. Natasha is talking that straight cold killer shit on everybody this issue. The hardship of this is that you start to understand the perspective of Weeping Lion by the end of the issue and realize that although his actions are extreme toward Black Widow, they aren't unwarranted.

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 19, 2016

    Deep emotions are felt as flashbacks reveal two very disturbing childhoods. This all ties into current events that feel important and groundbreaking. This is great storytelling because it's tied so well to the character. If you're at all interested in Black Widow, you must read this. Read Full Review

    Black Widowis one of the best books on the stands right now. It's definitely my favourite Marvel book (just beating out Mighty Thor), and when I look back on this year I'd be hard-pressed to think of another comic that I have enjoyed more. With gorgeous art, razor-sharp dialogue and a slick spy story, this is a must-buy. Check it out at your local comic book shop or online doo-dad now! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - SHAY REVOLVER Oct 23, 2016

    There was unfortunately not enough meat or Natasha to make it a real page-turner but, I still hold out hope for the next issue because the arc must go on. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Oct 20, 2016

    As a character, Black Widow is as complex as they come. It's that fact that makes the latest from Chris Samnee and Mark Waid all the more impressive, issue #7 both intricately layered and entirely accessible. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 24, 2016

    This comic is an absolute pleasure to read from front to back. My only misgiving is that it doesn't have a lot of the high-flying action I associate with Black Widow, but since this is the beginning of an arc about Natasha getting revenge, I expect we'll see enough fighting soon. Waid and Samnee are a great creative pair, and I would probably follow their combined efforts anywhere. Read Full Review
