Patsy Walker has managed to escape her past, her enemies and Hell itself (literally)--but nothing compares to job hunting in New York City! Between trying to make rent and dodging bullets, she barely has time to deal with the popular republication of her mother's exploitative romance comics about Patsy's teenage years, much less their interference with her work and dating life. As she goes from living a double life to living a triple one, what the Hell is Patsy supposed to do? There'll be burgers, monsters and rent checks; old friends like She-Hulk and Valkyrie; and a ghost from the past with questionable motives! Patsy Walker returns to the spotlight in her first solo ongoing series since the '60s!

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.

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.

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.

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.

I've never encountered Hellcat before now but I think I like her. She's got a past , which is explained when necessary in little footnotes of sorts with comic references if you want specifics, and she's just trying to get back on her feet after being laid off by her best friend.

It's lighthearted, much like Patsy herself, and it was fun to read. I also liked the use of our less well known Marvel characters (but also the promise of other larger ones!). Patsy's fighting the millennial good fight: for decent jobs and affordable housing and control over her own identity. I can get behind that.
