Cover & Solicit 3/5


While I don't really like the art on this cover the team-up aspect draws my eye. Any book that features that many characters running into battle can't be bad right? I do have to spoil the solicit for you in the fact that the battle to the death between the Widow's happens but not as the solicit makes it out to be.

Art, Colors & Inking 2/5


I'm really disappointed with the art in this entire story arc. It seems like Marvel has this idea how an apocalyptic comic should be drawn and makes them all the same. IMO they make them too gritty, too dark, and lack detail. I have the same gripe with Age of Apocalypse.

Layout & Flow 4/5


The flow of this issue is superior to the previous issues, but only in the fact that by this point I finally have a small idea what is going on. In the first I was confused about even being in an alternate universe.

Story 4/5


This issue concludes the arc to take down the Venemma Multiversal. Continued from last issue we see Captain and both Black Widows teaming up with Keshmir Venemma who wants revenge on her alternate reality counterparts. Captain informs her there will be no killing. I enjoyed seeing all the different reality counterparts they threw in and the unique personalities they were given. As the battle commences outside the Widows go inside Venemma Multiversal, this of course leads to the events the solicit mentions, we get to see Black Widow fight herself, while confusing it was an interesting sequence. The death they mention of course isn't Black Widow but one of the alternate Venemma's. I think they did a very good job of tying up the arc and I'm actually happy I didn't give up on this series after the first two issues. I recommend this as a read but probably just as a TPB so you can get everything at once.

Verdict 3.3
