black widow tom raneyNovember brings a new Black Widow mini-series by Paul Cornell and Tom Raney (That’s his art above).  Read about the mini at Comic Book Resources.  I’m really excited about this series as Natalia is one of my favorite characters and Cornell is one of my favorite writers (His Captain Britain & MI13 being a recent addiction).  I’m really psyched that Cornell plans to show not only Natalia’s beginnings, but also her early interactions with Hercules (Champions era Black Widow is among my favorite incarnations of Natalia).  I love that a super spy and a god were on a team together.  Black Widow is one of the few remaining women in the Marvel Universe who has still retained a strong sense of identity and independence.  It seems that Cornell intends to keep it that way!
