    Flavianos art is intense and beautiful. Its filled with energy and the way the panel are composed gives a sense of speed and movement throughout the issue. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 15, 2019

    Bolstered by Flavianos art, Jen and Sylvia Soska have sculpted a neat, little corner of the Marvel Universe that would be great fun to dive into again. Just as the story feels like its wrapping up, theres the full realization that the story is ending. Theres a kind of satisfaction in that, but theres a strong desire for more with Jen, Sylvia, Flaviano, and the badass red-headed Russian super-spy. With any luck, the Soskas will return to another mini-series at some point soon. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Branden Murray May 18, 2019

    Overall, the Black Widow mini-series, headed by the Soska Sisters, was another one of the Marvel mini-series of late that has really really impressed me, while also introducing me better to characters I don't know all that well. There's something with the shorter form stories, that the publisher is putting out that have really grabbed my attention, what with their tight pacing, and entertainingly told messages of a wide variety. Coupled with strong art throughout the entirety of the book, the Black Widow concludes in fantastic fashion, with the combination of violence, action, and a whole bunch of heart you've come to expect from this title. This is something I highly recommend. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Samantha Puc May 15, 2019

    I didn't know what to expect going into this series. Having come out the other side, I'm thoroughly impressed, not just with the writing and art, but with the lettering by Joe Caramagna, which does so much to elevate the fight scenes and drive home the dialogue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 20, 2019

    It's VERY dark and wears its movie influences on it's sleeve, but all in all, this is a good final chapter. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley May 16, 2019

    Jen and Sylvia Soska have demonstrated an understanding of the Black Widow's character that makes it easy to wish they had more than these five issues to work with " even just one more to better serve said scene and expand it into its own distinct issue " to see where else they'd take her and to see them get even more used to working in the medium.

    While busy, it juggles each loose plot tie easily and answers questions fans didn't even know they had. So, if you're looking to dive into an ease Black Widow web, this run is the one for you. Read Full Review
