She may be an Avenger and an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., but the Widow has her own mission: to atone for her past as a KGB assassin. Her methods are dirty. Her heart is cold. But her work is flawless. On an undercover assignment in Russia, she finds that the Hand of God is reaching for her--and it's as merciless as its name. Outmatched by the brute force of this powerful new villain, Natasha discovers a deadly globe-spanning plot. It's a race against time, and the Widow has nowhere to turn for answers. The trail of blood and destruction will test her strength and cunning--but it may also test her faith.
I’m not enamored by the artwork and the storyline is just meh. Black Widow spends most of this graphic novel screwing up and then saying she needs to pay better attention. Over and over again. Boring. And how many times does it need to be mentioned that she feels she must atone for her past sins? Too damn many. Repetition is not your friend. I got it the first time. I’m definitely not interested in continuing this series.
