Very nice. I like the rendering of the vinyl texturing of her outfit.

Sweet! 

I've always loved the Black Widow.  Done right, she can be one smooth, cool, calculating character that lives up to her namesake.  JB, what's your association with her, if any?  Do you have any particular "feeling" for her character?  Does she interest you enough that, given the chance, you'd write a story or stories using her?

Black Widow in this costume is unquestionably one of the sexiest gals in comics!

I did the Widow back in THE CHAMPIONS. Then, she was still being played in "real time", so she had been a young girl at the Battle of Leningrad, some thirty+ years earlier. I liked that she was an "older woman", pushing 50 but still "hot".

Of course, the character is so screwed up now I would not want to go anywhere near her.

Two stunning redheads in one day!  Black Widow should always have this costume and hair style.  Thanks for sharing.

Very nice.

Black Widow's one character who went from one of the worst costumes to one of the best.

Did she always have bangs?

As I recall the bangs came when Romita redesigned
her in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN.

 Another deadly woman. Is there going to be a third for today, JB?

This is an early Don Heck, with short hair. She never grew out the bangs?

Stop John. Just stop.  Two in one day. And two amazing character poses.  I just can't tell which I prefer any more the character poses or the standard commissions

I like both the 60's and 70's costumes. But kind of like capes, the the fishnets where probably out of place for Marvel's style. I mean, who wears a cape besides Thor?

Very very nice, JB.  With these two magnificent pieces today, I feel like you're getting warmed up for my commission of Namor with his gallery of lovely ladies!
