    Casagrande and DAmico deliver some stellar imagery throughout this issue. The art continues to be a beautiful and brilliantly detailed part of what brings me back to this series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 26, 2022

    Overall, Black Widow #14 is yet another example of why this is the best comic book that Marvel is currently publishing. Kelly Thompson, Elena Casagrande, Elisabetta D'Amico, Jordie Bellaire knock it out of the park with create the maximum amount of tension through the various action sequences and character interactions. If you aren't reading this series already I highly recommend fixing that because you really are missing out on something special. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 3, 2022

    The action at the auction reaches the second issue. Things explode at the end. It's a bottomless quagmire that the heroes find themselves in. Typically a single operation like this running for more than a couple of issues could tend to feel a bit sluggish. Thompson and Company keep it moving in a way that avoids any potential difficulties with pacing. And that stinger at the end is very provocative. Just when it looked like things were about to wrap up in a clean fashion, things get all the more complicated simply and brutally with a quick slice of action. It's very smart storytelling.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Feb 23, 2022

    Despite the fact the book jumps between different characters and locations, the story flows smoothly and ends with a shocking cliffhanger ending that I have to admit caused my jaw to drop.  Good stuff. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 1, 2022

    In a somewhat surprising turn, after it appears everyone is on their way to safety and the Living Blade poses no current threat, Black Widow reengages the assassin when she could flee to fight another day (with back-up, like say the Avengers) rather than pick a fight she knows she can't win. The early results in their latest encounter don't look good for our girl. Read Full Review
