    “The Finely Woven Thread”

    You’ve seen Black Widow as an Avenger and even an Agent of Shield. But on her own time she searches for atonement for her past as a KGB assassin—in ways of which those teams just wouldn’t approve. From the darkest corners of the Marvel Universe, Nathan Edmonson (Who is Jake Ellis?) and Phil Noto (Thunderbolts, X-23) bring you a new ongoing series as gorgeous and mysterious as Nastasha Romanov herself!

    WIDOW'S PEAK (Black Widow #1) 0

    I never read anything significant that involved Natasha Romanova before. From what I've read, she was always associated with the Avengers, and I really didn't care much about her. I had the same perception about Hawkeye until I started read Matt Fraction's Hawkguy. Now, Clint Barton is one of my favorite character! This is also a good sign that great things are ahead for Natasha in 2014! Writers can make or break characters, and Nathan Edmondson did a great job writing the character of Black Wid...

    Nathan Edmondson did an excellent job of taking this Avenger and putting her back into the environment that she's best suited to.

    Hallelujah, I thought this comic would never come! As one who is an avid supporter of female protagonists in the comic world, I couldn't be more thrilled that the ginger Avenger has once again returned to the spotlight. Edmondson and Noto's talents work harmoniously together in this first issue and give us a seamless introduction to former KGB assassin Natasha Romanov, who's attempting to reconcile her dark past.We see immediately that Natasha is coping with a side of herself that she'd rather ...
