tliscord reviewed Black Widow #4 Dec 2, 2020
9.0

The past few writers have been trying to create a WS/Hawkeye buddy cop vibe which just isn’t working for me. Way too forced. The characters deserve better here than casting them as the idiot savants. The art depiction of Winter Soldier is hilariously cartoonish.

Otherwise a great series with great art, panel layout and coloring. Deserves a 10 if not for my previous observations.

Black Widow #4

WHAT LIES BENEATH?
The plan to take the Black Widow off the table unravels as the Black Widow inside Natasha continues to wake. But Natasha has more to lose now than ever before, and the choices she makes will define her life forever. As for her enemies that have joined against her...they have badly underestimated her...a fatal error.

While the art has been inconsistent at best, Acuna's issue 24 being the best, Coates' focus on Sharon and the Daughters is absolutely correct, and much needed. This issue continues her soliloquy and bears down on the Daughters, and on Peggy. At first I was put off by Peggy's reboot but in the context of the Daughters I'm settling into a nice vibe here ... especially with the Carter sisters. I beli more

Captain America #25 is another magazine where we see Sharon Carter narrating and starring. And that is tremendously good. Anyone who doesn't understand what Coates is doing is probably thinking that this is the worst Captain America magazine.

But all the men who innovated something were severely criticized. Coates is not writing an action comic. He's writing a novel, a real book with dr more

Thats fine then write a novel. His storytelling overall isnt bad but its just not good for a monthly comic book in my opinion.

A very well-written and designed magazine that continues to address more of Sharon Carter's potential as she always deserved, and her great relationship with Steve Rogers, witch needs to continue with that beautiful approach, drawing an incredible parallel of the couple of heroes they are, against the couple of villains Alexander and Alexa are, showing that the Lukin couple still maintain their th more

I can agree with a lot of what you said. Even tho i don't like this issue as much as you do, i can appreciate what Coates brings to the series, especially those last few issues and the creative choices he makes.

tliscord - Oct 15, 2020

I agree with your comments. Thought dialogue was good, art fabulous, set up for next issue with the Daughters. Coates and Acuna provide a nice working collaboration.
