This is what I wanted the first volume to be.

Phil Noto's artwork is still visually stunning. I love everything from the red in Natasha's hair to the way he draws the rain. I love the palettes and how I reread each page just to look at the art again. I loved seeing so many people from Natasha's past -- I won't ruin who features, because part of the joy of my reading experience was discovering who was going to help her next.

The last few lines of this graphic novel really won it for me. Finally, I thought, Edmonson gets Black Widow, he understands her and her inner thoughts, which is something so rewarding to read.

I will definitely continue with the next volume. I hope it only gets better.

This was a very practical version of Black Widow, who is tough and cool, (and actually wears a decent costume!) She frequently tells the reader and other characters that she is a cold-hearted person. This proves to not be entirely true, though her job mostly consists of her killing bad guys. She has compassion on her abused neighbor, and eventually takes pity on a stray cat and adopts it, realizing that " need someone else." Which was cool, because she learns to shut others out less. She also acknowledges her mistakes and learns from them.

Pretty but boring. Lots of fighting, lots of bitter reflection. The bitterness felt... inelegant? Like repetition rather than deepening. There are mysteries, but they don't allow the reader to participate, nor do they allow the reader to admire Black Widow's intelligence.

Really gorgeous art, though, oh my goodness. If you like the genre, this may be worth it just for that.

I REALLY love this series. This is what happens when both the writer and the artists are outstanding storytellers. They don't need lots of words or overly elaborate layouts. This series is the antidote to big event comics that mean little to nothing once they are done being read (and sometimes while they are being read).

Very happy I borrowed this. It reminds me somewhat of Bendis' run on Daredevil when Bendis was not filling every panel up with words but gave the stories great pacing, moving them along and keeping them interesting and being economical with dialogue. I'm looking forward to reading the first volume of this series.

An outstanding kick off to a solo series featuring the Black Widow, the spy and Avenger. Edmondson has an exceptional take on the character, who is working in her own way to make amends for her past. The art by Phil Noto has a dreamlike quality that serves the story well.

Unfortunately I admit, I do have a home. I have always had a home. Even if it is not apparent to me or anyone else. Home is where the hurt is.
