Kate Bishop's strange East Coast cousin. It's not bad.

Although, I'm not a fan of Natasha Allegri's art. It's not very comic appropriate.

After having my heart broken by Jeff Lemire's All New Hawkeye volume, I picked up this one.

It was SO much fun and so wonderfully feminine. The colour palettes were bold pastel pinks and purples, bright yellows and blues and I loved it so much.

Kate Leth has imagined a word eerily close to our own -- a world where young mutants and 20 somethings with powers aren't heroes but are considered a liability and can't get a job. Enter Patsy Walker's temp agency, here to find work for people with exceptional abilities.

This felt so, so feminist. I could tell it was written by a woman and I really appreciated that. The nods to LGBTIQA characters and issues felt real, I could feel Leth's touch on every page, as if she's poured herself into this graphic novel.

It was a super, super fun romp with a lot of ladies doing exceptional things and Patsy Walker is someone I now hold close to my heart. If you like Avengers and all those bbs, you'll love this.

Patsy Walker: Hellcat is exactly what mainstream superhero comics needs. Like The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Hellcat is fun and full of personality--a charming character showcase. It's bright and inviting, striking a fine contrast against much of the doom and gloom so many other comics of the genre get sucked into. That's not to say it is purely frivolous. Actual character growth occurs over the course of the series and the cast of characters grows more and more to showcase a kind of diversity lacking in most mainstream comics. This series is a great example of a book that can and should be enjoyed by anyone, one of the few modern superhero comics I could truly recommend for younger readers, though written with a sharpness of wit that will appeal to older fans. A true rarity.

It didn't work for me, personally. Too cartoonish and goofy, but that's more my personal taste.

Another what I would consider successful foray for Marvel to capture more of the female market which is out there. It's somewhat lighter and wonderfully comical fare without it doing a disservice to its main character. If anything, it's a really relevant way of bringing her back to any kind of forefront in the Marvel Universe. I think it shows that you don't have to take the same approach with every character in order to put them over to the audience.
