Black Widow: The Things They Say About Her 2 (December 2005)


The art problems continue. It appears even when he’s just doing finishes, Sienkiewicz didn’t really want to take the time on the series.

This issue improves the series overall, even if Morgan is sort of racing around. There doesn’t seem to be a story so much as clean-up from the last series. Natasha is trying to find her friend (who I really hope doesn’t turn out to be brainwashed to be an assassin against her) while her enemies are trying to track her down.

Then there’s Daredevil and Nick Fury, who are just standing around so they can guest star. The first series felt like Morgan wasn’t on a leash. This one… it feels like Marvel is giving very specific instructions as to how many pages Daredevil shows up on….

It’s hard to dislike because it’s so competent; it just doesn’t have much energy to it yet.

Soon, hopefully.
