Black Widow, Vol. 1: The Finely Woven Thread by Nathan Edmondson and Phil Noto

4/5 Stars

I’m back! Hope you’ve all been looking forward to my review today. If not, that’s totally cool. As promised in yesterday’s review, today I will be reviewing the first issue of Black Widow in the Marvel Now! Series. This was another great library find. I’ve been wanting to read this for ages, so I knew luck was in my favor when I saw it sitting on the shelf.

I’m sure we all know Black Widow from The Avengers, but who is she when she’s not fighting crime with that big group of heroes? Well, this comic collection gives us a little insight of how she fights crime on her own, but not much of her backstory. It’s all still a mystery. However, in this comic we do get to see how Natasha Romanoff spends her free time. Does she push people away too much? Is she happy with her solitary life? Will she ever let that cat that comes to her door every night inside? Find out in this all new Marvel Now! Comic.

I really enjoyed this story. I liked the mystery it had and all the ideas that were left open ended (I’m sure for the future comics). The writing and illustrations worked well together. Edmondson and Noto make a brilliant team to weave the story of this spider’s thread. I have nothing bad to say about this story.

But, I also don’t have much to rave about either. I did feel this comic collection was worth the 4 stars I gave it; I just felt like it was missing a little something, so I couldn’t give it a full 5 stars. I’m not sure what it is I felt the story was lacking. It was just something. Something small that could have been there to take this story to the next level.

Given the fact that I have nothing negative to say about this story, but nothing fantastic to rave about, it seems like this review is coming to a very short end. I wish I could say more, but it happens. I liked the story. I would definitely recommend it. And, I will absolutely be reading more about Ms. Romanoff. I enjoyed this comic and thought it was no doubt worth the read. Pick it up for sure if you love Marvel, especially Black Widow. 

Get your copy of from Book Depository here for $14.20.

Oh that reminds me.

I do have one more thing to say.

Where’s my Black Widow movie Marvel? Huh, huh, huh. Where is it?! 

Okay, that’s really all now. I hope you all have a fantastic weekends. I’ll be back on Sunday with my weekly book wrap up. Hope to see you all there.

    1. I was really surprised to find this one! It’s not often I find popular comics at my Library, so I know how you feel.
