“Black Widow: Deadly Origin starts strong and looks to be a really entertaining series.” – Kevin Fuller, IGN.com
“Raney provides marvelously detailed action set in the present day.” – Doug Zawisza, ComicBookResources.com
“Leon’s bold, thick lines and heavy inks capture the roughness and harshness of World War II-era Russia well, and his faces are subtly expressive–by which I mean that they capture the emotions of his characters realistically, without resorting to exaggeration or caricature.” – David Wallace, ComicsBulletin.com
