Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This Marvel Comics 2011 graphic novel "Widowmaker" pairs Natasha Romanov, the Black Widow, with Hawkeye and Mockingbird in a complicated but exciting four-part spy story credited to Jim McCann and Duane Swierczynski.

As the story opens, SHIELD agents Hawkeye and Mockingbird are investigating a conspiracy aimed at triggering conflict between Russia and Japan over the disputed Kuril Islands. The clues lead to Siberia and the Black Widow, who is following her own information. The three agents, joined by freelancer Dominic Fortune, end up in Japan in a lethel confrontation with a clever and ruthless opponent, an old enemy of Natasha Romanov.

The artwork is good to excellent, and the dialogue is juiced up by Hawkeye's uncomfortable status as lover or ex-lover of his two female partners, who can't seem to agree on anything. The plot itself relies heavily on the Black Widow's complicated backstory, and frankly gets a little hard to follow. Readers will have to pay close attention to the twists and turns, which really only set up the rather exotic ending. Recommended to Black Widow fans.

Format: Paperback
I've never liked Hawkeye or the Black Widow. They've just never interested me. So when I saw this TPB with cover art by Jae Lee, who did gorgeous covers for all the issues, I found myself intrigued so I purchased it.
This is the first time I've been able to finish an issue involving predominantly Hawkeye or Black Widow, much less both of them. (And 4 issues of them to boot!)
The plot follows Hawkeye and Mockingbird going to Japan after a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent is assassinated there. They find the Black Widow investigating the death of many KGB agents, which ties into there investigation. They team up and discover that the Dark Ocean Society, an interesting group of bad guys, is behind it. The ending of this miniseries is satisfying and the overall plot is interesting enough to keep you hooked into the very end. I never skipped over a single word. The art is pretty good. Manuel Garcia did a great job. Jae Lee did the covers, doing an excellent job as always.
Overall I recommend this to newcomers and veterans alike of Marvel fandom.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed the first couple of Hawkeye and Mockingbird series. Adding a character I love like Black Widow seemed like a no-brainer to me. Sadly what I read was a strange hodge-podge of unconnected storylines and obscure tangents. The fact that there were two sets of creators showed the lack of cohesion a good story needs. The characters all seemed like odd versions of themselves and no one shined. The villains were terribly lame and the "reveal" was beyond pointless to readers. Add the lack of any consequences to the extremely rushed art and you have a huge disappointment. Overall, this is a sad letdown.
