And here we go again! Another post-Secret Wars title has been revealed! This one is big, not only because of the character, but because of who’s making it. Black Widow will once again receive her own ongoing title, but this go round it’ll be helmed by the former Daredevil comic team of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee, who just ended their legendary run of the character.
“It’s similar to 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. 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.”
Samnee noted how both him and Waid chatted about how to approach the character of Natasha Romanov, and where to direct her in the series:
“We both talked about it ahead of time. As we chatted it out, we had an idea of where we both sort of wanted her to go, and we’re both heading in the same direction instead of fighting against each other”
