Book Description

21 April 2010 Black Widow and the Marvel Girls
She's the most efficient spy in the world and one of the world's deadliest women, but before there was ever a Black Widow, there was the Red Room, a brutal KGB training ground for assassins, undercover agents, and the most ruthless of spies. Now, tasked with removing a rogue weapon's dealer from an impregnable safe house, the Black Widow remembers her escape from the Red Room training facility, an escape only made possible with the aid of the most unlikely of allies, the Asgardian sorceress known as Amora...the Enchantress. Black Widow and The Marvel Girls #1-4.

Format:Paperback
The four-issue mini-series Black Widow and the Marvel Girls is collected, along with Amazing Spider-Man issue #86 from 1970, as Black Widow and The Marvel Girls GN-TPB. The mini-series features adventures with a variety of fellow-Avengers and other characters, as we see the Black Widow bonding with her new team-mates, and we also get a glimpse of her origin in this Marvel Universe. They are excellently scripted and illustrated stories, and would not be out of place in the `real' Marvel universe.

Issue #1 sees the Black Widow breaking into (and out of) the base of an international arms dealer, which is intercut with her younger days at the `Red Room' training facility, where the Enchantress takes an interest in her upbringing and training - "I'm bored. Bored as only an immortal can be, and I saw an opportunity to cause a few explosions."

Issue #2 sees the Black Widow and the Wasp making their undercover escape from Latveria, after Doctor Doom set a trap for the Avengers in the hope of stealing the Vision. The Wasp gets to bond with the new girl on the team, as Black Widow's espionage skills help get them and a captured Doombot out of the country.

Issue #3 sees the Black Widow investigating the new super-powered female Captain (Carol Danvers) Marvel, as they team up to hunt for one of the Red Skull's Sleeper agents on the loose in Israel.

Issue #3 sees the Black Widow and Storm of the X-Men teamed-up with the Mole man to hunt for a kidnapped senator being held by a rogue faction of Moloids who have become a New York street gang.

Amazing Spider-Man #86 guest-stars the Black Widow, in the story which saw her transform from her `old' femme-fatale character and costume into the 1960s cat-suited spygirl that she has remained to this day. Ah, the 1960s, the decade that never dies. I remember it well - I was too young then to have forgotten it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power women when they are at their best. 17 May 2013

Good quality and wonderful stories. It's funny to see how different authors/artists see one of the most charismatic girls of the marvel-verse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Black Widow teams up with the women of Marvel 20 July 2010
By Bryan VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first comment I have to make is that Black Widow and The Marvel Girls is a reprint of the mini series released from Marvel a short while back - that's not the point I wanted to make though. As a rule, reprinted mini series in the form of a graphic novel are the same size as the original, but BW and the MG has actually been published at a reduced size. However, it does include a reprint of Amazing Spider-Man issue 86, written by the legendary Stan Lee and illustrated by the equally talented John Romita and Jim Mooney, and features the debut of Black Widow's classic costume.
The four main stories are team-ups featuring Balck Widow and a prominent female member of the Marvel Universe - in this case, the Asgardian Enchantress, the mutant Storm, the curvaceous Ms Marvel and the Avenging Wasp. There are a number of guest stars too - the Avengers, Doctor Doom and the Mole Man.
The stand alone stories are easy to read and fast-pacing and the artwork is of a very high standard, something to be expected from companies like Marvel, DC and Dark Horse. The book comes recommended to Marvel fans and comic book readers alike looking for something to read which is not too heavy and suitable for all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Comics for Girls! 5 May 2013
By Felicia Graf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this as a gift for my daughters friend who is a big fan of Black Widow. I was really excited to find a comic book about female superheros that was appropriate for young (elementary-school aged) kids. I'd like to see more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Girls on the go! 25 Sep 2013
By james & mary smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a graphic novel in this SHIELD type of comic without all the blood and gore, then this is the one for you. There isn't any blood or internal organs laying everywhere. Where ever someone is hit or shot there is a splash of yellow & orange so you do understand that there was a hit that just happened. BRAVO Marvel!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written characters 13 Jun 2014
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really liked the way Natasha was written in this book - her quips made me laugh out loud a few times, and I like when her attitude is well-written like that. The story-lines weren't my favorite, nor was the art, but I thought the writing of the characters made up for that. The Ms. Marvel story was definitely my favorite. I also enjoyed the bonus vintage Spider-Man/Black Widow comic at the end!
