Two of the most lethal soldiers in the Marvel Universe cross path’s this August in “Friend From Foe” – an exciting new crossover taking place in BLACK WIDOW #9 & THE PUNISHER #9! Rising star writer Nathan Edmondson along with blockbuster artists Phil Noto & Mitch Gerads craft a spy-action thriller that will take Frank and Natasha to the edge!
“Both stories led us to a place where a crossover was possible at just about the same time,” say series writer Nathan Edmondson in an interview with Marvel.com. “We knew fans were clamoring for it from the beginning, but we didn’t want to rush into it – when it was a natural time, we came up with a really unique way to launch into it.”
Circling the same sinister syndicate put the Punisher and Black Widow on a collision course with each other. A collision course that will lead them to an oil tanker full of dangerous explosives and even more dangerous information! Not to mention deadly mercenary Crossbones and his Skull Squad are just waiting for their chance to strike!
“Frank and Natasha are a really interesting pair to combine together,” continued Edmondson. “On the one hand, they seem to exist in the same kind of heroic/antiheroic space in the Marvel Universe, but at some point the similarities stop and the disparity begins, and the tug and pull between those two ends will be at play here.”
The clock is ticking. Will Frank and Natasha be able to complete their mission before they’re taken out by their enemies? Or even worse, each other? Find out as the epic 2-issue crossover “Friend From Foe” hits this August in BLACK WIDOW #9 and THE PUNISHER #9!
