WHITE... WIDOW?! Nobody who knows Natasha Romanoff would have imagined THIS when hearing the words "White Widow," but nothing about this new Nat is what anyone could have imagined. It's no surprise that she's looking sublime in white, but who's the lucky groom? And is this a match for love... or death?

    Black Widow #3 is just a fantastic issue. The action is solid. The humor is great. There's just so much there to enjoy and it's all tied together with top-notch visuals.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Weird Science Jim Nov 9, 2020

    I am enjoying this series and liked this issue a whole lot. Kelly Thompson is pacing this well, and in a story like this, that is crucial. It feels like the right amount of time to get settled into Nat's new life, and now it's time to rip it all away from hermaybe. Elena Casagrande's art is the icing on the cake to a book I enjoy each time it comes out. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 4, 2020

    Theres an attempt at overall continuity being made her. Its admirable. Black Widow has been through so many things over the years and now shes finally got what a part of her has always wanted. Theres a two-page spread featuring art from many different artists that flit through her memory while shes unconscious. Its kind of breathtaking to see the work from so many different artists from so many different eras all coming together to fuse into a vertiginous perspective of the woman and what shes going through right now. The Marvel Universe has come to be so hopelessly convoluted over the decades. A true moment of perspective on continuity like the one near the end of this issue is rare. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Nov 6, 2020

    As "The Ties That Bind" arc progresses Kelly Thompson and Elena Casgrande continue to add layers to the story. Black Widow #3 keeps that trend going as there are new elements added that will build on the mystery around Natasha Romanoff suddenly waking up to a new domestic life. Both the villains and heroes that have been brought in added to the questions you have as a reader. It all gets you excited to find out what is really going on with this story. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Nov 5, 2020

    Natasha suffering a memory loss isn't a new thing; it can been seen as far back as Marvel Team-up #82, where a certain red-haired school teacher despatches would be muggers before Spidey can lend a hand. Still that was quite some time ago, to say the least, so I am willing to give Thompson and company a bit of a pass here. Taking a breather from Captain marvel is certainly giving Thompson some fresh muscles to flex. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 9, 2020

    The action taken from the more vengeful members of the group push Black Widow a little closer to her old life, but once the dust has cleared just what version of the character will be left standing? Read Full Review
