Black Widow: The Name of the Rose – Marjorie Liu

Who knew the sexy spy/superhero had such a detailed history? I sure didn't and it would have helped if I had read the essay at the end of this collection before reading the comic. It seems that the Black Widow has been collecting intel on the superhero community and selling it world-wide. Now it's up to her to find out who is framing her (if anyone even is). The work is pretty good. Again, it suffered for me as I didn't know much about the character, but it really makes her shine and there are enough cameos to thrill the fan-boys without detracting from her story.
