Black Widow #2

   After her success in The Avengers movies, as played by the stunning and charismatic Scarlett Johansson, the Black Widow is slated for a feature film of her own in the near future.

  The filmmakers would be smart to adapt the story featured in this new series by co-writers Chris Samnee and Mark Waid, with art by Samnee - it's a rollicking spy thriller with plenty of over-the-top super-heroics thrown in for good measure.

   Last issue started things off at top speed, as Natasha stole something from S.H.I.E.L.D. and made an amazing escape. This issue we find out at least part of the reason why (though there are no doubt more parts of the story to be uncovered).

   The art is amazing - stylish, evocative and powerful - a perfect match for the story.

   I've always liked the Black Widow, but this is the best of the solo adventures for the character that I've seen.

   Don't miss it!
