I don’t come across the work of JG 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 women look like plastic dolls. Another reason why coloring with computers is stupid.
In the Marvel Knights comic book series, Black Widow issue 1, released back in 1999, both the artwork and characters play a significant role in capturing the reader’s attention and setting the stage for an engaging narrative. Created by Devin Grayson and JG Jones, this issue showcases a visually stunning style that complements the heroes and villains featured in the story. The detailed and vivid illustrations allow readers to gain a deeper understanding of the characters and their motives, bringing each personality to life. With a diverse roster of compelling characters at the forefront, this first issue of Black Widow not only enthralls fans but also sets the stage for future thrilling adventures.
The story delves into the life and struggles of Natasha Romanoff, the titular character. As a skilled spy and former KGB operative, she battles against the demons of her past while trying to navigate the complex world of espionage. This high-octane adventure draws in readers with its stunning visuals and intricate plotlines intertwined with Marvel’s shared universe. The story, at its core, is an exploration of Black Widow’s resilience and determination to forge a new identity, even in the face of extreme adversity.
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 is just better to find the Black Widow graphic novel, than trying to find all the individual issues.
