    This final issue perfectly caps off a fantastic series that finely balances, action, and intrigue with genuine emotional growth for Natasha as a character. Superbly written, drawn, colored and lettered, it deserves its place alongside the best Black Widow stories ever told. I highly recommend it! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 6, 2020

    The year begins with the ending of another Black Widow mini-series. Housers story is an interesting contrast to the Soska sisters mini-series, which ran earlier-on in 2019. Theirs was a more populous series that lived in action. Housers work has been an altogether more shadowy journey. The two series show a bit of versatility in a character who still holds a great deal of appeal as she makes her leap to the big screen in a solo film later-on this year.  Read Full Review

    Without giving too much away, every little detail laid in the past four issues is wrapped up nice and tight almost to a point where it's too predictable. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 2, 2020

    The Web of Black Widow #5 ends the latest adventure that Natasha Romanoff went on in a satisfying way. Jody Houser showed a strong understanding of who Natasha was during her time in the Red Room and who she has become as the superhero known as Black Widow. If you are looking to learn more about Natasha Romanoff's character in anticipation for the upcoming Black Widow movie I recommend checking out The Web of Black Widow when it comes out as a trade paperback.
