Not much is clear about the current state of the MCU’s Black Widow film, but Marvel Comics is moving full steam ahead with its release of a new series that presumably would have dovetailed with the films original release date. Today, Marvel has released a preview of the first issue’s cover and a trailer for the comic that has a decidedly Archer-esque style to the art.
Written Kelly Thompson with art by Elena Casagrande, the story from the official Marvel press release is light on details. However, the trailer seems to indicate our crimson-haired super spy is pulled out of retirement when her enemies refuse to let her leave the old life behind.
You can check out the cover, watch the trailer and read the official Marvel press release below.

New York, NY— August 7, 2020 — What happens when Black Widow’s deadliest enemies discover a way to take her out?

“It’s a bold new vision for Black Widow and one I am really hoping people can get excited about,” Thompson told Marvel.com earlier this year. “Our first arc has some of the stuff you would expect in a Black Widow book, but I think twisted in a new way that’s interesting – and where she ends up at the end of this highly personal and life changing story is ALSO interesting!”
