Marvel has announced yet another brand new series, but this time... this one sounds very promising.

From Comic Book Resources, Marvel has announced a brand new Black Widow series. However, it's done by the impressive creative team of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee!

Following the conclusion of her previous ongoing series and a noticeable absence from the initial lineup of Marvel's "All-New, All-Different" initiative, Entertainment Weekly has announced that "Black Widow" will return with an all-new ongoing series -- this time from the "Daredevil" creative team of writer Mark Waid, artist Chris Samnee, colorist Matt Wilson and letterer Joe Caramagna.

When asked if the series would be a fresh start or pick up directly from where the previous run (from writer Nathan Edmondson and artist Phil Noto) left off, Waid responded that their "Black Widow" would do "a little bit of both."

"It’s similar to the way we approached Daredevil, in that we’re not picking up specifically from the end of the previous issue or specifically from any one moment. But we’re acknowledging that, and making use of the fact that what happened in the previous series happened, and using some of that stuff as a springboard," said Waid. "And it is, by Marvel time, at least eight months later. It’s not the next day, anyway. Especially in issue 2 in particular, we’re sort of spring boarding off of some of the previous events, but not so specifically that anyone should feel like they’re missing anything if they didn’t read the previous run."

Waid and Samnee also discussed their collaboration as storytellers, something that grew over the course of their "Daredevil" run once Samnee came aboard, and will grow even more now that the artist is involved with the launch of this series.

I really enjoyed the heck out of the last Black Widow series, so let's hope this one is good as well! What do you all think?

Awwww hell yeah! I'm so psyched that they got to stay together as a creative team, and also I'm interested in the direction they'll end up taking Natasha. I'm in.

Yes, well.

That is to say, I am pleased by this announcement.

Waid and Samnee are one hell of a team, so while I don't generally find solo Black Widow to be terribly interesting, I'll definitely be checking this series out.

Awesome! I was really hoping this would be the team on Black Widow, though them on Daredevil forever would have been great too...

Waid? Yes. This will probably end up being an interface between the Avengers' superheroic world and SHIELD's techno-espionage.
