When you pick Black Widow #1 the first thing you notice is a striking cover illustrated by Phil Noto, and the book only gets better from there; if you can believe that! Flipping through this pages you can see the many traits that make Nathasha Romanov one of the most deadly assassins in the Marvel Universe. She's conniving, vicious, smart and it let's the reader know immediately that this woman is NOT to be taken lightly; the Black Widow is for real!
But of course, I can't forget about the art. The art on this book is something to behold! Phil Noto is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the comics industry and this book shows us exactly why that is. Every page is beautifully crafted to perfection. The attention to detail, the colors, the angles, the panel work... simply a treat for the eyes of the reader. Art fans rejoice! I have to say, if this is what we can expect from this creative team and if Marvel let's this team work on this book for at least a year; I'll be buying every issue and I guarantee that it's going to bring Black Widow to the major leagues in terms of the Marvel Comics Universe. I'd like to close this entry by saying... Black Widow #1 is KILLER!
