Natasha Romanoff and Bucky Barnes have a history as long as war, companions since the Widow's earliest days in the Red Room when both were trapped in service to the wrong side. It's one of the greatest - and most tragic - love stories of the Marvel Universe. Now the world will try to get between them once again. And with the Widow missing memories, she may find herself losing the only person who would have forgiven her for what she has to do next.

    Stephen Mooney delivers some great art in this issue. There is a film noir quality to the panels that help to enhance the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Some comics don't rely upon stopping the end of the world to be effective and this series is proving that. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Oct 12, 2019

    Another excellent installment to go with the strong first issue as the mystery around Black Widows faceless opponent deepens. This creative team is delivering exactly the kind of story that I enjoy: Sexy action-packed entertainment executed with style! Read Full Review

    There's quite a lot of mystery here… which is arguably just what you want from a comic about someone known for their espionage work. There's a lot for Natasha to work out and in some ways this issue presents more questions than it may have answered… but if you are in for the long haul… these are just cogs in the machine… filling their little story based roll in the big scheme of things. Grab a copy if you grabbed issue one and enjoyed it. If you haven't read any of this story arc yet… maybe wait for the next one to see if it's to your taste… it can be a bit confusing and a bit of context either side might help. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 13, 2019

    Web of Black Widow #2 was a strong follow-up on what the first issue of this series established. Jody Houser's writing for Natasha Romanoff and Bucky Barnes is the star of this comic book. The rich history between the two is clear with the approach Houser takes to writing when these two are on screen together. Natasha and Bucky's chemistry helps drive up the interest in the greater story involving the past events involving the Red Room coming back to haunt Black Widow. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 9, 2019

    The larger picture of what Huser is trying to convey wont be apparent until the end of the series, but what shes delivering here seems interesting enough for now. The big revelations awaiting in the next several issues may well prove that the first couple of chapters have been worth the wait, but for now, its all a bit of a slide of uncertainty through twenty pages or more.  Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Oct 9, 2019

    Overall this is a Black Widow story by the numbers. It’s a good read, quick but with no substance. If you like the character you might find something to enjoy here. Just don’t expect any ground breaking storytelling. Read Full Review
