    Calling her Mrs. Matt Fraction is really rude, she has made a name for herself, he has nothing to do with it.

    A certain interpretation of my comment, which I understand. I know she's made a name for herself, but I always know her as his wife.

    The MCU and the new run has taught me to love Natasha and everything she does.

    The newest issue was really good. I'm curious to see who or what this new threat is. Also, more of Nat's adorable kind-of pet cat.

    Black Widow has some pretty funny lines at the beginning of Original Sin #1.

    The story is connecting the dots more, instead of one-shot missions. Issues 4 & 5 were mostly action, and I thought #6 was probably the best issue and a nice thematic end to the arc that builds on the previous emotional beats. The art hasn't gotten any better or worse and the dialogue can still be a bit uneven. So, it probably depends on what you didn't like about it.

    Another vote for Marjorie Liu. I also like the Grayson/Rucka stuff.

    Thanks for that descriptor, Klynn. I'm really only interested in reading the material with Bucky, whom I heard has a part in Liu's story. The personal life stuff in the current book just seems out of place to me.

    He's in it briefly, but used well. They are my all-time favorite Marvel couple, loved what Brubaker did with them in Captain America. Liu honors that relationship, but it's not a primary focus of the story.

    liked issue 6 a lot. Continues to be one of the best looking books on the market today, and she finally let the cat in.

    I hope we get a OHC. Long time, but I still hope.
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.
