Review: Black Widow- The Finely Woven Thread


Book Info:

Collects Black Widow (2014) #1-6. You’ve seen Black Widow as an Avenger and even an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. But on her own time she searches for atonement for her past as a KGB assassin – in ways of which those teams just wouldn’t approve. The Black Widow goes undercover in Russia, but from its cold streets, the Hand of God reaches out to crush her…and it is as merciless as its name implies. Outmatched by the brute force of a powerful new villain, Natasha faces her deadliest test, and discovers a deadly plot unfolding that spans the entire globe.

My Thoughts:

First, a HUGE thanks to my OTSP Secret Sister for sending me this on my kindle! I finished a book on Sunday and then wanted something “light” to read for the rest evening and this seemed like the perfect choice- and it was.

I’ve been a fan of graphic novels for years and I love how they can be for any type of reader thanks to the diversity of the comic and graphic novel world. Being a Marvel fan and a (most of the time, thanks to my hair stylist…) redhead, I’m a BIG fan of Black Widow. She’s tough and she gets things done on her own initiative! But, what about this particular collection of the character, right?

If you’re interested in Black Widow or if you’re new to her story then you’ll like this collection. I think it would be a great introduction to readers who don’t know much about her story. Plus, the artwork is beautiful! There is a tiny bit of profanity in the story, but it also isn’t meant for children, so that shouldn’t be an issue unless you’re buying it for a middle schooler that you don’t want to read it. Honestly, it’s not a lot and it didn’t bother me,but yeah…just making the note in case you decide to buy it for a kid.

Another thing to note is that the stories have a fast pace. Obviously comic issues are short, but I never once felt that they were long and drawn out because of how engrossed I was in the story.

Again, I highly suggest looking into this one! It’s currently sold out on Amazon in paper form, but the ebook version is clear and easy to use. I love the fact that you can even double tap on a panel to enlarge that panel, but it is never necessary. Trust me, I have terrible vision and I never once needed to enlarge the panel, but it’s still handy to have available. That’s one great option that you can’t get from paper, so…plus one to ebook comics!

Who’s your favorite comic book character?
