Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at a classic Roy Thomas/Gene Colan Black Widow Christmas tale…
In late 1970’s Amazing Adventures #5, Black Widow has a bit of a holiday tale.
Widow’s friend, Ivan, saves a young teen from killing himself and contacts Widow for help…
He tells about how he fell out with his “raps” (was that ever seriously a slang term for “friends”?) due to their pursuing a life of MURDER, so now they’re coming to silence him before he can spill about their nefarious deeds – Widow is there to protect him, but it doesn’t go down like that…
Pretty sweet little tale, and it’s been reprinted a few times over the years.
“The” moment, naturally, is Widow in the shower.
