Black Widow #1

Black Widow #1 — Writers: Chris Samnee and Mark Waid;  Art: Chris Samnee;  Colors: Matthew Wilson Avengers Standoff: Assault on Pleasant Hill Alpha — Writer: Nick Spencer;  Art/Colors: Jesus Saiz Two debuts from Marvel: Black Widow‘s had a lot of anticipation, coming from the Daredevil team of Waid and Samnee, and what this first issue offers is basically the first five minutes of a James Bond or Mission Impossible film: a full-on action sequence/chase showcasing the super-spy derring-do aspects of the character.
