Because of a frankly stupid Comixology sale* I picked up the Edmondson/Noto run on Black Widow. I'd previous read Edmondson in Who is Jake Ellis, Where is Jake Ellis, a bit of The Activity and his 1872 run, before dropping Red Wolf like a hot potato. And yes, it is true that Edmondson is problematic at best. Noto on art has gone from being a nice pin up artist but a bad story teller to a dynamic and cinematic storyteller.

The plot of the Edmondson/Noto Black Widow run is that an organisation, Chaos, and Natasha aren't getting on. She goes after their assets. They go after her accountant. She goes after their accountants. She gets names and details and calls a meeting, hiring a cruise liner for the occasion.
The meeting )


In the sale, I picked up

Two volumes of Aaron's Doctor Strange
Two volumes of Edmondson's Black Widow
The first Thor Visionaries


I would recommend
All of Fraction's Hawkeye for a tenner. Honestly, you're a fool if you don't.
All of Waid's Fantastic Four
All of Hickman's Fantastic Four
SECRET WARS
Hyperion: Daddy Issues
Doctor Strange: The Oath
Astonishing X-Men
War of Kings
House of M
Chelsea Cain's Mockingbird
Ellis's Moon Knight
Fraction's Defenders
Patsy Walker: Hellcat (by Kathryn Immonen)
Runaways

'It is a challenge. I’m not accustomed to writing a character who’s this morally gray, but to make her a straight-up “super hero” would be a betrayal of who she is. I’m working hard at finding just the right beats to make her engaging without being wholly accessible.' -- Mark Waid

"The approach is actually tonally wildly different. DAREDEVIL was an intensely internal narrative; Matt was telling his own story in first-person-immediate narration, whereas it would be a mistake to get that far into Natasha’s head. She’ll have her secrets from the readers." -- Mark Waid

"It really does feel like we left DAREDEVIL at the right time, at what we felt was a peak; and the energy we had there, we transfer here." -- Mark Waid

"Us pulling out all the stops. Not being afraid to go crazy, not being afraid to break toys. There’s a whole new sense of pacing we’re playing with." -- Mark Waid

"I think the finished comic reads like a natural leap from what we were doing in DAREDEVIL, and yet feels completely different." -- Mark Waid
