    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Nov 30, 2016

    This issue and series is absolutely amazing. There is something for everyone here and definitely one that should not be missed.I highly recommend if you haven't been following this series, go pick up all the back issues and get caught up. With so many books out on the market they have to really stand out to draw us in and keep up. Black Widow is arguably the best series on the market period. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Dec 1, 2016

    There's a lot at play towards in this issue and especially towards the end. Waid and Samnee are a great creative team at turning people around and giving them their own block in Marvel universe to run amok in. They proved it on Daredevil and they're continuing the work here in Black Widow. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joe Ruggirello Dec 1, 2016

    Waid & Samnee deliver one of their craziest issues yet, as Natasha utilizes a lousy Bonnie Hunt impression in order to infiltrate 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. and stop one (or more) of the Dark Room's former students before they can harm the Vice President. It's a crazy premise, but the script delivers plenty of heart as this is quickly becoming one of Nat's most personal missions yet. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 1, 2016

    Black Widow #8 is another strong entry in one of Marvel's best ongoing comic books. Mark Waid and Chris Samnee did a fantastic job giving us a scope of the fallout from Natasha Romanoff's clash with the Dark Room's Headmistress. The balance between strong character development and engaging action sequences was on point throughout the issue to tell a complete story. With the ending teasing the appearance of the Winter Soldier there is plenty to be excited about for Black Widows continuing adventures. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Dec 5, 2016

    Here's a well-written, expertly-drawn, self-contained story in a comic book, and it's both fun and compelling to read. Behold, ladies and gentlemen! A comic like this from the Big Two is the choicest plum, and seem increasingly rare. I can't wait to read the next issue of this series, and I'd follow this creative team anywhere. Read Full Review
