Widowmaker #1 (of 4)

Widowmaker #1 - Comic of the Day
Thank Jae Lee, Hawkeye. He makes us care.
When I hear "Widowmaker" I, like pretty much every other person on earth, of course think of the unique bow which ignores target's defense, increases damage and gives a 33 percent chance to deliver a deadly strike: a D2 Widowmaker.

Beyond the bow though (bow though - awesome string of words) Widowmaker may now be synonymous with the Marvel mini series featuring Hawkeye, Black Widow, and an unknown spy killing Ronin...or just the cover art of Jae Lee. Honestly, the only reason I bought this book was because of the cover. His recognizable style has run wild on the covers of several Marvel titles recently, something that is sure to turn into more per issue sales. I am actually very pleased that Marvel chose to make his cover the standard issue and not make it a rare variant cover which I would have paid a few extra bucks. Widowmaker #1 is one of the few comic of the day issues where Marvel could have made an extra buck off of me and didn't. I suspect they are not quite sure what they have in the amazing Jae Lee.
