    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 21, 2019

    The Soska sisters bring on the brutality in a second issue that allows Black Widow to be extremely vicious to low-level villain who clearly deserve it in a surreal amplification of the street-level criminal darkness thats actually lurking out there in the real world. The villains have been revealed in this second issue. Now the Soskas have the rest of the series to navigate Black Widow through them in pursuit of justice for young victims like the one she encounters this issue. Read Full Review

    BLACK WIDOW #2 may continue to maintain a rather simply story, but its authentic, raw, unapologetic vignette of Black Widow herself transcends. Read Full Review

    This over the top violent issue may not be for everyone, but if you're not the squeamish type, this tale of revenge might be for you. Even though this is not my normal cup of meat, I am having a good time…something that disturbs me just a little. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Gwen Dylan Stacy Feb 26, 2019

    Still, it's good enough that the writing itself should make up for what exactly I had qualms with that really isn't that big of a deal at all. For me, Black Widow earns a solid 3.5 out of 5 stars. I look forward to seeing what Jen and Sylvia and their team do next as my love for one of my favorites rekindles itself. Read Full Review

    As the real world struggles to protect the marginalized, comics like these are needed. I only wish Black Widow was better written to serve its important messages. Read Full Review
