THE WEB OF BLACK WIDOW

The spy tale of the century! When a mysterious figure starts exploiting Black Widow’s murky past, Natasha must go underground and off the grid! Who can she trust in this web of deceit? And more important, can her friends trust her anymore? Natasha must run down all the names from her past—starting with Tony Stark and Bucky Barnes! The Widow and the Winter Soldier have quite a history—but when they reunite, they may wind up without a future. Fellow Black Widow Yelena Belova comes calling, but can she help Natasha rise above her past? And when the Widow targets Hawkeye: Clint Barton, she might find herself shot through the heart!

BLACK WIDOW VOL. 1: S.H.I.E.L.D.'S MOST WANTED

They wowed you with DAREDEVIL, now the Eisner Award-winning team of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee take Black Widow to new heights—by forcing her to go on the lam! Natasha has a lifetime of secrets, and when some of the darkest ones are made public, nobody is safe. As S.H.I.E.L.D. turns on its once-greatest asset, she seeks out her own answers in a knock-down, drag-out tale of action and espionage! But the Widow’s hunt for the Weeping Lion sends her back to the one place she never wanted to go! With a little help from old friends—and old enemies lying in wait—she’ll face the new incarnation of the Red Room: the Dark Room!

BLACK WIDOW: THE ITSY-BITSY SPIDER

Natasha Romanoff has always led a life of adventure. First, she was a spy, fighting on the Cold War front line. She then defected to the West, eventually becoming a Super Hero and an Avenger. Natasha has earned a reputation as a consummate professional, coldly efficient and as deadly as her namesake. But now, her time as Black Widow may be running out. Yelena Belova, the new Black Widow, seeks to claim the mantle she feels was stolen from her Motherland. Anxious to prove herself by eliminating her counterpart, Belova will stop at nothing to achieve her goal. The battle of the two Widows rages from the deserts of the Middle East to New York's Upper West Side. And when the smoke clears, will either be left standing?

Collects BLACK WIDOW (1999) #1-3 and BLACK WIDOW (2001) #1-3.

But nothing will keep the multiskilled merc from his million-dollar payout—Viva Las Vegas! Then, are you prepared for the Taskmaster’s secret origin? He has trained henchmen for every terrorist organization and criminal cartel in the Marvel Universe. So when word spreads that the Taskmaster has turned traitor, a billion-dollar bounty is put on his head. To keep himself safe, the Taskmaster must attempt his hardest task of all: figuring out who he really is!
