    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Jul 29, 2021

    With a quick wit, sleek art, and compelling characters, Kelly Thompson, Elena Casagrande, and Rafael De La Torre have made this book the one I look forward to reading most every time it comes out. Kellys got a real knack when it comes to creating a group of characters to care about. Natashas had several books over the years, but Kelly Elena, and Rafael have struck just the right elements that make this run one to look out for. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 2, 2021

    Kelly Thompson, Elena Casagrande and Rafael De LaTorre once again show why their work on Black Widow is some of the best being produced at Marvel. Black Widow #9 is strongly paced with a mix of fun action and great character work for the entire cast of this series. The ending leads to even greater anticipation for how this storyline around the Apogee will all turn out. Read Full Review

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

    Thompson and Casagrande are delivering a lot of story in this issue, but the balance between detail and action is a bit difficult to come to terms with. It's hard to feel much of what Natasha is fighting for as so little of her current life has really been brought to the page. Granted, it IS only starting to assert itself. Still, the breakneck pace of the action compromises the power of what's going on...and it's causing issues that might be serious further down the line if some level of stability isn't brought to the page.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Aug 4, 2021

    Not a lot of surprises here, but a solid middle issue setting up the conclusion. All of this, of course, leads into the next issue's end of the arc in which the Widow will finally square off against Apogee (which might be harder than she planned as the villain goes full Hulk in front of her).
