Written by Kelly Thompson with art by Elena Casagrande, the ongoing launched last September and has thrilled readers with each issue since. Featuring stunning super spy action and heart-wrenching emotion, BLACK WIDOW has quickly become a favorite for F.O.O.M. far and wide. (If you've been reading—and you most definitely should be—you're in luck: issue #9 comes out tomorrow!)

And joining the BLACK WIDOW team with silverware is Marvel's Stormbreaker Peach Momoko, who won the award for Best Cover Artist!

Having contributed some of the most singular and sensational artwork over the last year, Momoko has quickly solidified her place as a top talent in the Ideas House. Including her stellar work as a cover artist, earlier this year, Peach launched the Demon Days Saga—a collection of issues both written and illustrated by the creator—thus supplying Marvel mavens everywhere with a resplendent cache of pure Peach Momoko brilliance.
