The forces behind No Restraints Play are going to learn what that really means when they finally realize who they actually have in custody.
Tyger and Ed are trying to track Black Widow and communicate with her after she was taken prisoner by Vlad. Widow herself is buying time for the pair to locate her by remembering who she is and what she will not allow to happen to her.
When the order comes to remove her mask, Nat leaps into action and gives the viewing audience a show they’ll never forget. The rest of the guards are drawn in, giving Tyger the time she needs to free the children being used as entertainment.
In the aftermath of an epic battle, it takes everything in Tyger to get Nat to abandon the carnage and help her get the kids to safety. When the two go to confront the man behind the operation, they discover that they’ve been betrayed from within.
Jen and Sylvia Soska bring this story to a violent and beautifully crafted crescendo with this issue. Nat is written perfectly in both personality and skill. There are great character moments throughout and the Soska’s give the reader enemies they can truly enjoy seeing Widow handle. The twist at the end of this issue was epic and I can’t wait to see how they conclude this series.
Flaviano’s art is stylish and beautiful and masterfully combines sincere emotion and unbridled rage, especially with Nat.
