Marvel Comics has announced a new four-issue limited series starring the iconic due of Black Widow and Hawkeye.

Black Widow & Hawkeye launches in March 2024 from writer Stephanie Phillips and artist Paolo Villanelli. The upcoming series celebrates both title characters’ 60th anniversary.

What is Black Widow & Hawkeye about?

An official synopsis for Black Widow & Hawkeye #1 reads as follows: “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 said, “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.”

Black Widow & Hawkeye #1 goes on sale March 13, 2024 from Marvel Comics.
