Black Widow #13

Taking an opportunity to offer context to the final panel of the previous issue, Black Widow #13 offers a flashback issue to Black Widow's time in Madripoor and her first meeting with the Living Blade, featuring limited dialogue (but plenty of narration from Natasha) we watch our heroine do her best to survive someone who appears more force of nature than man.

Even after their encounter comes to an end, Widow isn't sure what she did to get on the legend's radar but she is sure that she hasn't seen the last of him. Recreating the character's older costume and look, along with a retro feel to the art, Black Widow #13 is a fun single issue that still serves a larger arc. Whatever the Living Blade wanted from Natasha all those years ago, he's back. Can she survive him a second time?
