How long will this last? Can the Widow carry her own series? For more than 12 issues, maybe? I heard/read that her last series was good too. Does she have anything of a rogues gallery? Whatever happened to that female (Villain.) Black Widow? With Blonde hair, I believe. Is she still dead? Thanks.

Ive enjoyed the book so far, but its not looking good for the series unfortunately.

#1 only sold about 55K copies - not brilliant for a new series - and sales have dropped dramatically since then, with #3 selling just 28K copies - not too far away from Marvels invisible cancellation line of about 20K copies.

To be perfectly honest, Marvels current ethos is to take a 'seasonal' approach to their titles, so whilst this may mean alot more relaunches and #1's for the more popular characters, it could also mean more exposure for lesser known characters like the Widow.

Widow probably isnt popular enough to carry a long running series, but a 12-issue limited series every year or so? Probably.

My recommendation is to read it whilst weve got it, because its a good book.
