Some of My Friends Read Comics 157 – Black Widow: Web of Intrigue + Amazing Spider-Man #10

Just like in the movies, Black Widow spent most of her time in the comics as a side character until she finally got to stand in the spotlight on her own.

We took a look at a couple of these stories from the 80’s in a collection called Black Widow: Web of Intrigue, both written by Ralph Macchio.

First up is a George Perez story from Marvel Fanfare #10-13 and then a black & white one-shot in Bizarre Adventures #25 with art by Paul Gulacy.

And of course, we continued Amazing Spider-Man with issue #10 and the least memorable villains of all time.


Next Time: Super Metroid (from Nintendo Power 57-61)
