First Look: BLACK WIDOW #1

Natasha is getting ready to kick everyone's butt.

How awesome is this going to be? We're all excited about this series here. Check out the just released preview. Then let your comic shop know you want this on you pull list.

This January, Natasha fights off her demons in the new Black Widow #1, the action-packed new ongoing series from the blockbuster creative team of Nathan Edmondson and Phil Noto! You’ve seen her as an Avenger and even an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. – now prepare for a side of her you’ve never seen before!

Though she now walks a righteous path, Natasha’s past is paved with bloody memories. The death and destruction from her past as a KGB assassin still haunts her – and she now seeks atonement for past sins. Atonement that will take her to the darkest corners of the Marvel Universe and beyond. And commit acts the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. would not approve of.

“Phil Noto and Nathan Edmondson have one those magical creative partnerships that brings out the best in both of them,” says series Editor Ellie Pyle. “Together they bring you a Natasha who is unsettlingly human in the midst of all the action and intrigue you’d expect.”

Deadly foes and lethal threats await around every turn – and the Black Widow stands alone. Don’t miss this new series that’s as gorgeous and dangerous as Natasha herself when Black Widow #1 is released this January!

Let's hope that the comic will go more than eight issue.

Not to be that guy, but I'm going to be the frist to point out the typo in the title. :)

@samyroc: Another reason why everyone interested needs to let their comic shops know to order copies. Too often people just wait to pick it up and the orders end up being low. Then those shoppers figure they'll just trade-wait and it starts to go downhill.

@g_man: My theme song right now!

Edited by Dernman

I might have been interested in the pre Scarlett Johansson but ever since she picked up the role I've never been able to look at Widow the same. She ruined the character for me. :/

I wouldn't want this kind of art for a superhero but it's good for a spy character.

This looks so good this She-Hulk & Punisher are added to my pull list

Posted by dagmar_merrill

Damn.. I guess I'll check this out then.

@g_man: Well I guess Tony is feeling like a woman today. lol I can't wait to check this out I hope it will be good.

Posted by GraniteSoldier

Looks like Natasha is going to get some of the respect she deserves. I won't be picking it up since I don't have room for it in my list, but it still looks good.

Posted by tigerkaya

Excellent she's back in her element of fighting organized crime and terrorist. Now if only she could be taken out of Avengers books in general and just stick to this all will be well.

Posted by KidChipotle

Ugh I am going to love the stuffing out of this title.

Please, don't be the "frist" to point out a typo. (Yeah, see how easy it is?)

And I am definitely getting this. Noto is my homeboy.

Awesome, I've always loved Black Widow's solo stuff. Nothing beats some espionage and infiltration! SPIES!

Posted by V_Scarlotte_Rose

Is this from Black Widow #1 or Point One? I know the title says it's the former, but the "to be continued" kind of makes it look like this comes before #1.

Unless previews now have "to be continued"s in them that is.

You know I might buy this just because I want the series to do well. Initially was going to trade wait it.

Edited by Battle_Forum_Junkie

I just might pick this up. Looks awesome.

Posted by jwalser3

Looks great, Black Widow needs more love.

Cool. Gonna pick this up

Posted by Fenderxx

Wow, art looks good, I will be adding this to my pull list no doubt !

Posted by Akindoodle

I love how the art reminds me of an Connery-era Bond film

Edited by NICKXH

Looks good. The art at least...

Edited by Perfect 10

never liked this artist and the art on the last black widow series was pretty bad as well. will at least pick up the first issue but dont see myself reading it monthly with that art

Posted by Meteorite

Yeah, because this will totally sell well. With due respect to this team, if Marjorie Liu's last, excellent Black Widow series didn't sell, then why will this?

Posted by ThatGuyWithHeadPhones

Art defiantly is alluring, might check it out.

Posted by Mucklefluga
Posted by The Stegman

this is going to be the only Marvel title I'm adding to my pull list, looking forward to this a lot!

Posted by HushoftheWind

im just glad they decided to cover up her cleavage for this series or else it was gonna be hard for me to that this series serious

Posted by amaltheias

So, so ready for this title.

Posted by Danial79

I love Noto's art, but I've never been much of a Black Widow fan, so I'm torn. Might give #1 a shot and see where we go from there.

Edited by Perfect 10

@perfect_10: Not a fan of Noto? Whaaaaaaaaat!

hey everyone has their tastes. im into pretty stylized art. my favorite comic artist is phil jimenez followed by stjepan sejic, greg land, george perez, and carlos pacheco to name a few

Posted by Smurfboy

Nice arts.

Posted by BuNKiTZ

I'm not a big fan of Black Widow, but I like her. Plus, I really do like Phil Noto's art so I'm definitely going to try this!

Yes I knew there where others who felt the same.

Book looks interesting.

Edited by ScarletWitchFever

Definitely picking this up. Phil Noto's art is incentive enough to try it.
