Both Black Widow comics get a release date after being delayed along with the film. With every MCU release, there is a comic response that capitalizes on the newfound interest. These two new titles are Widowmakers: Red Guardian and Yelena Belova and Taskmaster. The first will follow Yelena and the Red Guardian as they seek redemption and a new life. The later features the dangerous villain Taskmaster as he thwarts the world’s best spies. Full synopsis below. Widowmaker releases November 18th, Taskmaster releases on the 11th, and the Black Widow film is expected on the 6th.
Yelena has spent years trying to figure out who she is. Once she thought the Black Widow mantle was her destiny, but fate had other plans. Now the past is catching up with her — and with Alexi Shostakov, a.k.a. the Red Guardian! Alexi has worn many titles, including husband to Natasha, but while the Widow played her avenging games, the Red Guardian waited in the shadows. Now a new day is dawning — and this time, no one will stand in his way.
TASKMASTER HAS MURDERED MARIA HILL!
Or at least that’s what the whole world thinks. Now the greatest spies in the business are hunting him down and won’t stop until Taskmaster is dead or clears his own name! Follow JED MACKAY (BLACK CAT) and ALESSANDRO VITTI (SECRET WARRIORS) on a globe–spanning adventure that will send ripples through every corner of the Marvel Universe’s espionage community!
