Armed with a century’s worth of dark secrets, Bucky and the ever-mysterious Contessa Valentina Allegra De Fontaine will lead a new team of Thunderbolts dedicated to eliminating the greatest threats on Earth.

“Alongside our old friend Geraldo Borges, we're taking this opportunity to tell a very different kind of team book,” Kelly and Lanzing said. “This is a whole new era for the Thunderbolts and it starts with a four-part espionage epic, an ever-shifting cast and a single overarching goal: to tear down a century of Nazi evil with justice like lightning."

The four-issue limited series will both dive into the duos history of secrets and espionage while playing off recent developments including Natasha Romanoffs recent bonding with a symbiote!THE EYES OF A HAWK AND THE VENOM OF A WIDOW! Even when Black Widow and Hawkeye had no one to trust, they still had each other even though their paths sometimes diverged. So when Clint Barton is accused of a rogue assassination attempt that puts the U.S. and Madripoor at odds, a symbiote-equipped Natasha Romanoff thinks nothing of coming to his aid. But as echoes of their past ripple into the present, it will take all their faith in each other and the lessons learned along the way to protect their futures."I love getting the chance to dig deep with Natasha Romanov and Clint Barton to tell a fast-paced spy story that celebrates their 60th anniversary, Phillips shared. Nothing is as it seems, and I'm having a ton of fun writing these characters. Not to mention they both look great for 60."Check out Stephen Segovias explosive cover below and celebrate Black Widow and Hawkeyes milestone with this epic series this March!BLACK WIDOW & HAWKEYE #1 (OF 4)Written by STEPHANIE PHILLIPSArt by PAOLO VILLANELLICover by STEPHEN SEGOVIAOn Sale 3/13

Right on the head my friend. Comic books stopped being comics a long time ago. Every writer seems to have some big epic in mind that we never get to see the resolution to because they can't keep us to stick it out all the way through. It doesnt work as multi part monthly installment because all stories stall or plateau in the middle at some point. In a comic style serving that plateau could last three to six issues or more and people just drop off. This has those markings. From the outset this team really doesn't look interesting as a comic but probably could be a decent novel in the tradition of James Rollins or Clive Cussler. With a beginning, a build up, an apex, and a resolution. But it must have an end. Would it work better as a graphic? Probably much better than an ongoing series. Do I actually think all the current writers are terrible? No. More like in the wrong field of writing. Almost like they were trained novelist forced to break their story into 12 or more parts to fit into the comic framework. There are very few real comic writers actually working in comics today. This is the same thing with television. In a series like X-Files each episode can be watched and appreciated as a single story or with the occasional two, three or four parter. These days with series like Walking Dead or Game of Thrones or Tombstone if you miss a single episode you lose cohesion of the entire show. I understand they are very separate forms of productions but aside from the goofy sitcoms all television seems to be headed thar direction. The same seems to be the case with comics.

I'm a HUGE X-Files fan! I hate the way they handled the revival series from a couple years back. But, yes, they managed to make a good chunk of the episodes standalone, while still balancing ongoing narratives (aliens, government conspiracies, Mulder's sister) that lasted throughout the entire run. That was brilliant. 75% of the episodes could be enjoyed in a simple "movie of the week" format, while the other 25% kept you engaged with Mulder and Scully's personal arcs. I still do a yearly binge-watch of the series. I appreciate the series way more as an adult than I did as a kid. Cigarette Smoking Man is on of TV's greatest bad guys.
