Review: Black Widow Volume 1: The Finely Woven Thread by Nathan Edmonson & Phil Noto
My overall thoughts and review: I am not one hundred percent well-versed in all things Marvel comics related, but I am slowly getting into it. I loved the character of Black Widow from all the Marvel movies and I have read that this series is a good introduction to her character. I loved learning more about Natasha Romanov and from a different perspective from the ones shown in the movies. Natasha is a very flawed character, but it is so fascinating to read how and why she is that way. I loved specifically the artwork and just how minimalistic it looked, but in a good way. The stories were super intriguing and always kept me guessing. It plays with the readers expectations of what is to come. I especially love BW's interactions with Isaiah and the cat! xD I can't wait to continue on with this series, it is by far my favorite comic series that I have started this year. If you want to slowly introduce yourself into the marvel-verse through comics, I highly recommend reading this. The trade paperback of this was just released recently, so it is a lot easier to track down than the individual issues. :) I will most likely be doing individual reviews for each issues henceforth on my goodreads and when the next six are out, I will have another full review!
Rating of the graphic novel: 5/5 stars. SO GOOD.
