This straight up made me cry my eyes out. One of the best Black Widow stories I’ve read – not that I’ve read many, but it pulled at me emotionally.
I’ve become a fan of Black Widow in recent years not just because of the MCU but after seeing beautifully illustrated covers by artist Phil Noto in Volume 1: The Finely Woven Thread. That book got me hooked, but the writing by Kelly Thompson has totally reeled me in.
