kidnapping and or killing people Also, she was a weeeeee bit of a rage monster Why Well, the answer is in this one.Natasha has retired from the spy games, and has begun to have a somewhat normal life She s all chilled out n stuff Can I still say chilled out Or is that like something that only old people who are trying to sound cool say nowadays Cause I m not, likeold Really Fuck it Get off my lawnWhere was I Ok, she s relaxed and enjoying civilian life At least, until the first assassin comes for her Then she s all, Hi Ya Ker Chop Snap Crackle Pop , and kills him with her ninja spy awesomeness.It turns out, someone is sending assassins after all the women who were part of the Black Widow program And if Natasha wants to stay alive, she needs to figure out who and why Which means getting some help from a disgraced ex S.H.I.E.L.D operative, and going on a road trip Along the way she runs into some men trying to assault a teenage girl, and ends up taking her along for the ride And this is the Sally Anne from the other volume that I was so confused about Sorry, but I get all excited when things finally start making sense Also included in this one is a bitof Natasha s childhood origin in the Black Widow program And a lot of it was quite a surprise for her.There s a bunch of other things that happen, but it all explains Natasha s transition into amercenary character in the second volume And even with the art being somewhat iffy in spots my opinion , I enjoyed this quite bit.Recommended if you re interested in readingabout the Black Widow Morgan can write, hands down And even though his unmistakable prose was exchanged, in this case, for pictures, the dialogue, themes, and storytelling style bore his totally unique and absolutely stellar fingerprints In this story, Morgan takes on lots of big issues that hit a little closer to home it reads thematically very much like Market Forces There s the corporation, the lack of respect for the consumer that pays for that corporation s livelihood, and the mystery behind something It s l Morgan can write, hands down And even though his unmistakable prose was exchanged, in this case, for pictures, the dialogue,

much like Market Forces There s the corporation, the lack of respect for the consumer that pays for that corporation s livelihood, and the mystery behind something It s like post socialist spy aftermath noir, and not cyberpunk noir, but it s still noir in the flavor that only Morgan can manufacture Natasha is a really cool and strong female lead, and I liked the fact that Phil sort of filled in as a stereotypical male sidekick I can totally understand why this novel didn t sell well in stores it makes a farily pointed attack on the comics industry and in the general portrayal of women overall It lacks the fantasy element and offers in its stead sharp observations about the motives behind corporate gladiatorship, a econo humanist ideal that tragically caused a people to whore themselves to those who came to claim their way of life corrupt though it may have beem , and does both behind a pretty interesting backstory of sabatoge, conditioning and there s your Takeshi and science fiction elements I really enjoyed reading something different that Morgan wrote, outside the form of prose, and even though it s a graphic novel, I really felt I learned some cool stuff about post 1989 Russia and the way the people must have felt after the Berlin Wall came down Only Morgan could pull that off in a comic book that s supposed to be about a super sexy Russian spy Only Morgan, God bless him.Second Reading Richard K Morgan writes about three things expatriates on the run from the organizations that used to employ and or embrace them, corporate and government interests being evil at heart, and violence What impresses me most about these six issues of BLACK WIDOW is how even with the predictable Richard K elements, this story is unique for comics It doesn t contain anything too epic no huge clash of juggernauts, and no giant, impossibly huge overarching story Rather, it is comprised of a series of conversations between a half a dozen key characters and a handful of peripherals And while one of those characters is the fabled Nick Fury of Avengers fame, he, like the Widow herself, is simply a voice for discussion He does not get involved in the violence, of which there is very little He simply plays the part that Morgan has written for him the estranged handler, out to do the good thing, but whose hands are tied by the Powers That Be.Natalya is voiced with the perfect blend of power, decisiveness, and depth to keep her from being the woman object spy To offset that archetype or stereotype, perhaps , he introduces Sally Anne, whose abduction wends to way into THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER Phil latches onto her and not the Widow, leaving Romanov free to explore the KGB turned corporate plot which drives the characters forward, and which provides the context for Morgan s dialogue, which, as always, is nearly flawless The climax contains the right blend of theme and violence, as well as the teaser for part two, bookending with the asssassination of the three other discharged Black Widow agents from the beginning of the book to contain one of the best written stories that comics has seen in recent years, and certainly the perfect new direction for the Black Widow characters and storylines 5 Nice to see Natasha again Sad that the other Black Widows died Enjoyed seeing Natasha in action Glad Nat was able to stop Vassily Hope Phil and the girl will be okay Can t wait to readBlack Widow comics
