It is free on Amazon, the link Disney gives you is messed up and for a different, non free Black Widow book by the same author, but if you look in related products or just search manually for Forever Red it's free.

Dangit, only in the US!

Wasn't this supposed to introduce a character called Red Widow into 616 canon? There was some panels of her put out as promotional stuff but I don't think that went anywhere.

There's a Red Widow in Aaron's Avengers that's part of a Russian super team. I dont know if she or the rest of the team has popped up again post War of the Realms.

There was also a Red Widow in a Mockingbird one-shot in 2015 who subsequently appeared in a back-up story in Ms. Marvel in 2016; both of those comics were written by Margaret Stohl and so the character is already in 616 continuity, I guess the book (originally published in 2015 too) was her first appearance, and according to interviews the book is 'in continuity' too.

Jason Aaron's Red Widow has appeared more often and more recently, but doesn't appear to have any real connection besides the obvious ones.

I don't know, but I just realized Johnny Storm becoming any sort of mentor to Miles would be such a loving knife in the chest to Peter Parker it kinda needs to happen.

This is a copypaste in a couple different threads in case anyone bookmarks stuff and missed the posts in the discussion thread:

I'm setting up a fantasy draft for comic creators. This is similar to threads we've run in SAS to pick yearly or all time sports teams or in Trad Games to pick favorite board games. It's an opportunity to talk about comics in a different type of format and learn more about creators or comics you may not have heard of before.

Basically, we're picking creators (Big 2 folk, mangaka, webcomics creators, golden age artists, whatever) for imaginary comics companies in a snake draft that runs from 10AM EDT to 10PM EDT every day. I expect it to take about 6 weeks to finish. I've done these like 8 times, and they're always fun and result in learning a ton about a thing I like.

Right now we have 7 people participating, I'd like to get up to at least 12 if possible. We're going to aim to start this weekend.

It was a surprise(?) hit initially, I think largely due to David Finch being a "hot" artist of the moment and Marvel being "hot" in general:

Moon Knight #1: 103,671 (6th place for the month)
Moon Knight #2: 75,305 (19th)
Moon Knight #3: 69,450 (29th)
misses a month due to delays
Moon Knight #4: 67,673 (34th)
Moon Knight #5: 64,729 (28th)
misses two months due to delays
Moon Knight #6: 74,012 (27th)
Moon Knight #7: 76,918 (18th) issues 7-9 are Civil War fallout issues touting Spider-Man, Captain America, and Punisher as guest stars)
another delay
Moon Knight #8: 77,385 (20th)
Moon Knight #9: 69,125 (30th) this is the first non-Finch issue
Moon Knight #10: 56,716 (43rd)
Moon Knight #11: 58,277 (35th) 11-13 are branded as part of "The Initiative" story
another two month delay
Moon Knight #12: 47,506 (42nd)
Moon Knight #13: 44,036 (53rd)
Moon Knight Annual #1: 32,291 (68th)
another delay even factoring in the annual
Moon Knight #14: 34,541 (61st) Mike Benson and Javier Saltares take over
Moon Knight #15: 31,533 (57th)
Moon Knight #16: 29,538 (67th)
Moon Knight #17: 27,802 (81st)
Moon Knight #18: 26,619 (89th)
Moon Knight #19: 25,810 (83rd)
Moon Knight #20: 28,767 (92nd) oversized issue with Mike Deodato art
Moon Knight #21: 30,884 (78th) had a Marvel Apes incentive cover which I assume accounts for the bump
Moon Knight #22: 26,372 (94th)
Moon Knight #23: 25,213 (111th)
Moon Knight #24: 23,943 (85th)
Moon Knight #25: 23,280 (115th)
Moon Knight #26: 21,790 (89th)
Moon Knight #27: 21,409 (91st)
Moon Knight #28: 20,883 (92nd)
Moon Knight #29: 22,687 (106th) had a Wolverine variant cover
Moon Knight #30: 19,693 (101st)

As you can see, it came in hot, started dropping as soon as Finch left/Civil War ended, and then cratered after the first year.

tbf if we'd been on the twice-monthly schedule from the before-times, we'd be at issue #50 or later by now.
