Something is very wrong with Natasha Romanoff: she's...happy?! Retirement definitely agrees with the world's deadliest woman as she revels in the perfect life she never even dreamed she could have. But scratch the surface of that perfect life and you'll find something very wrong...and a woman like Nat just can't help but scratch.

    Overall Black Widow packs so much beauty, intrigue and charm into its pages. This is one of the most refreshing new series out, and I highly recommend picking it up if you haven’t yet. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cat Wyatt Oct 8, 2020

    Black Widow #2 is a carefully written issue, and it shows. It's rich and intense, full of subtext and creativity. Throw in the bold artwork, and that makes for a fantastic read. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 7, 2020

    Black Widow #2 delivers the goods and tops the first issue in every way. That was the basic setup but this is the issue where the cards are on the table and we get a thrilling story of espionage and sleeper agents. There's also enough teased out to get readers really interested as to where it all goes, especially due to the ending which really emphasizes the “why” of it all. This is just a fantastic superhero comic without the flashy spandex. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 7, 2020

    Elena Casagrande delivers some beautiful imagery throughout the issue. Theres a quiet beauty to Widows domestic life and Casagrande brings that across with great detail. The action is great as well and I love the panel progression as Nats fight happens with the backdrop of a spiders web. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Oct 7, 2020

    When all is said and done Black Widow #2 continues to build on the excellent start that its predecessor provided. The pieces are beginning to fall into place. I just hope Thompson and the company can continue the excellent work they have shown thus far. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Weird Science Jim Oct 8, 2020

    Kelly Thompson continues the mystery of what the hell happened to Natasha, and I am enjoying it. Elena Casagrande's art is excellent, and the story is shaping up to not only be about saving Black Widow but deciding if she should be saved at all. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 7, 2020

    The danger resting around the edges of Natashas life rests beneath the mystery of what happened to the Black Widow. And though this may be a very familiar premise for a story, Natasha seems to be navigating her way through it in a novel way in a distinctly Marvel application of the spy-with-amnesia sub-genre of cloak-and-dagger intrigue.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 8, 2020

    While her amnesia seems to explain her obliviousness to being caught on camera, there are quite a few unanswered questions here as to what the hell is going on, and as Clint asks – is this a life she needs to be saved from? Read Full Review
