Marvel Monday: HellCat #1 by Leth, Williams & Wilson



So let's talk HellCat. I picked up this issue because it was written by Kate Leth and featured a female lead (YAY MARVEL!). I was quite pleased to see that two of the artists of the book are female creators as well.

The first thing you need to know about this book is that this incarnation of Patsy isn't like the one in the Netflix show Jessica Jones. 

The second thing you need to know is that the story begins in the continuity of Charles Soule's She- Hulk run:

Kate captures the spirit of this series but then takes Patsy in her own direction. The ride that Leth and company has created for Patsy is fun but a little scattered. In the space of a few pages Patsy bonds with an Inhuman who is barely on the straight and narrow, loses her investigation job with She- Hulk, moves in with the aforementioned criminal of sorts and comes up with a plan to employ newly formed Inhumans.

It's a fun issue but it requires enjoying stepping into the quirkiness of Leth's writing. The art is gorgeous but I'm not really sure if I'm committed to the book for the long run. Still I'm committed to giving all of Marvel's female lead titles a try.
