The-MJP reviewed Black Widow #1 Sep 24, 2018
8.0

I never really had an interest in black widow and I have not heard good things about Waid’s recent work, so I was unsure about this seres

This issue immediately hooked me on the character and showed me why she’s more that just “the avenger who kicks a lot”

Very excited to read the rest of the series

But I will say Samnee’s art is a little Amateurish for more

even if him being gay makes no sense and was so poorly handled it made Riri Willams' Introduction look well-planned out by comparison

Herushalaim - Sep 22, 2018

Well, it makes sense in that gay people can spend a good portion of their lives being closeted and trying to make it work with women. I'm not saying it was a good move on Bendis' part. But it's not nonsensical. And that, whether you agree or not, has no effect on Sina Grace's Iceman run.

I don't like Champions, a comic bringing up social issues in an intellignet way is fine but a comic about nothing but social issues is just not what I'm looking for in a comic. UI mean they defeated their bioggest villain by making a self-esteem video, clearly this comic isn't for me

Herushalaim - Sep 22, 2018

I actually think this issue is more in line with what the series set out to do originally. You know, not always punching your way out of problems. I think Mark Waid lost sight of that very quickly and Jim Zub is just now remembering.

Silencer so far keeps her standards, and does not disappoint. Not once. This annual issue offers not the most original, but surely essential backstory of her coming to revelation she wants to quit her "work", and also how she met her to be husband.

Can't speak for anyone else but I personally like the series, and its mythos, and don't really see too much of resemblance between Silencer and other Marvel characters. Surely nothing as obvious as Gwenpool, Sideways, Deadpool or Old Lady Harley. Besides, Silencer has her own niche in DC - there's no other comic quite like hers. Even Deathstroke, since his comics have a very unique, one of a kind narrative and style.
