    This is both an interesting jumping-off point for Natasha and a darn good entry in the Black Widow canon. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 28, 2021

    Thompson manages some really sharp moments in a very stylish issue, but there isnt a whole lot of mystery lurking around the edges of everything. Minor subplots can be a bit of a distraction, though. Thompson seems to know how to put exactly enough on the page to keep the story moving. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Apr 28, 2021

    De Latorre delivers some beautiful art throughout the issue. The character focused art is a brilliant choice and the way the panels are focused is eye catching in its details while making everything from the character moments to the fights feel more intimate. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cat Wyatt Apr 28, 2021

    Black Widow #6 is a dramatic beginning to a new plot arc, one that is already proving to be as intriguing as it is intense. The artwork for this issue is breathtaking and works very hard to steal the show on more than one occasion. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Apr 28, 2021

    When all is said and done, Black Widow #6delivers a strong start to what could be the beginning of something new for Natasha. While Im not an expert on the character, if Thompson and company are heading her down the path I think they are, it should be exciting new territory for the Spy Supreme. (Authors Note: Not a real Marvel title, but it should be.) Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Apr 28, 2021

    Issue #6 chucks us headfirst into the new arc, is long on action but short on concrete answers as it cultivates an air of mystery around Black Widow and the White Widows' new mission. It's just the right blend of mystery and action to make you invest in this new storyline. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Apr 28, 2021

    Overall this was a fun read. I do have my reservations about possible directions this book is headed but it was still action packed and I'm interested to see her become a guardian for a city, rather than globetrotting as a super spy. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 1, 2021

    As each issue is released Kelly Thompson has established Black Widow as one of the best titles published by Marvel. Black Widow #6 is further proof of that as it carries the momentum created by the first story arc of this series forward in a positive direction. Thompson does a fantastic job showing how Natasha Romanoff plans on being proactive in taking down the threat of Apogee that has come after her. The artwork by Rafael De Latorre and Jordie Bellaire further elevates the story that takes place in this issue. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 5, 2021

    While the Apogee henchmen are monstrous and fearsome, none turn out to be all that memorable (although their combined threat does push Black Widow further than any individual fighter would). Now that she's save the girl, so to speak, what's next for the Black Widow and the odd collection of supporting characters she's putting together? Read Full Review
