    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 30, 2021

    The team on Black Widow is remarkably well-modulated. Everyones work on the book seems to sharply support everyone elses work. A team rarely feels this in synch. Once again, Adam Hughes cover artwork serves as an appealing opening to the eighth chapter of what is rapidly asserting itself as one of the most reliably good monthly comics on the rack this year.  Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Jul 1, 2021

    The team supreme delivers another top notch book. Thompsons characterization and dialogue is fresh, and gives each of the cast members distinct personalities. Meanwhile Casagrande and De La Torre bring their A-game here, and gives us flawless characters, a liquid sense of movement when theres action, and each character is distinct from each other. I hope Marvel knows this golden nugget on their hands. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 30, 2021

    Casagrande and De Latorre delivers some fantastic art throughout this issue. Not only are the quiet moments filled with great detail and style, but the action is fantastic and thrilling as well. I loved the Arana escape sequence for its visual flair alone. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 8, 2021

    The comic ends on a cliffhanger that would be more effective if we thought for even a second Marvel would be willing to kill off Yelena. Still, with the White Widow down, things are getting complicated for Natasha. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Jul 1, 2021

    Black Widow #8 gives us a few thrills and new pieces for the puzzle that is Apogee's final plan. Yet, it doesn't really clear the picture much. One could almost skip this issue except for the last few pages which are the ones that really matter for the story going forward. This week's Black Widow is okay, readers get some progress, and the art fits the tone of the book. However, it was difficult to regain my attention and focus after the word salad at the beginning of the issue. Read Full Review
