I don’t come across the work of J.G. Jones too often, but I recognized it immediately when I spotted the cover of Black Widow 1, some Marvel Knights thing from 1999. This is a great treasure if you can get your hands on it. The artwork is amazing. I don’t want to reveal too much about the plot of this comic, but it involves two assassins gunning for each other. There is also a cameo by Daredevil, with a not-so-subtle reference to them being lovers. The pencils by Jones in this first issue of Black Widow is superb, like I’ve said already, but the coloring makes his beautiful pencils of sexy bitches look like plastic dolls. Another reason why coloring with computers is stupid.
If you know me, then you know that I love the advertisements in comic books as much as the main story. Beside Black Widow 1 from Marvel having loads of action and great artwork, there is also a fun two-page spread for the Kubert School correspondence courses. The Kubert School is a school that teaches about how to make comics. All in all, it is no wonder this comic has become such a collectable.Black Widow is a fun read and a great addition to your collection, if you can find it. As usual, it just better just to find the Black Widow (affiliate link) graphic novel, than trying to find all of the individual issues.
