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!)

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.
