• Johnny Storm knew a date with Felicia Hardy would be interesting, but he didn’t know it would be OPENING UP GATES TO OTHER DIMESIONS POSSIBLY ENDING THE UNIVERSE interesting.
• But, remember, with the Black Cat, this is either planned or planned around and there’s no way Johnny knows what Felicia is going to steal under his and the FF’s noses.

• Surprising no one, Black Cat’s heist of Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum has gone horribly wrong.
• Felicia and her crew are under attack in a place where any wrong turn or opened door means certain death.
• It would take an insane amount of luck to get out alive. How much luck would it take to get out alive with the loot?

Felicia Hardy prides herself on the fact that she can get into ANYWHERE… but does that REALLY include Doctor Strange’s SANCTUM SANCTORUM?! Can the Black Cat get into the most protected house in the Marvel Universe? YES. But the question really is… can she handle what’s inside?

Review: Black Cat #1

Black Cat #1

I wasn’t sure what to expect in Black Cat #1. The character is a classic one but Felicia Hardy has never starred in an ongoing series. This debut makes up for some lost time and delivers an entertaining read. Black Cat #1 feels like a heist film. It takes beats and visual nods to that genre immersing the reader into the experience. It’s hard to not read this comic and experience the pause in motion as a scrawl flashes on the screen as to where a character is from.

Writer Jed Mackay and artist Travel Foreman are synced up in the flow and beats of the comic. There’s a finesse about it all that is fitting for the character of Felicia Hardy. Much like herself, the comic has a taste for the finer things. Black Cat #1 focuses on the details that makes the adventure fun.

The series continues Hardy’s new status-quo set up in The Amazing Spider-Man. She’s on the run after having angered the New York Thieves Guild. But, you need a good heist in there too. With an entertaining gang joining her, the comic has everything you’d want from action, to humor, and some playful banter.

The art is solid. Foreman is joined by colorist Brian Reber and letterer Ferran Delgado. There are some issues where panels, and a page or two, looks a little different than the rest of the comic. But, overall, it’s visually entertaining. The art balances the sexiness of the character. It never crosses the line and instead uses it to distract just as a thief would.

But, there’s more! The comic features two back-up stories that make it feel like all the more bang for your buck.

Nao Fuji delivers a fun and entertaining wordless story about Felicia and her cats that is beyond cute. While it doesn’t quite fit the other two, it’s a solid addition and something I want to see more of.

Mackay teams up with artist Mike Dowling, colorist Reber, and Delgado on lettering for a story concerning Felicia’s past. It’s clearly tied in to the main story and an excellent way to flesh that out without distractions. It too is fun and entertaining with a classical sense of adventure.

Black Cat #1 is an excellent debut. It’ll have you wondering why it’s taken so long for this character to get her own series. It’s a fun read that’ll put a smile on your face and leave you wanting more.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Rust Belt

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #2 (DC Comics) – If you’ve seen our review of the first issue, you know why this is on the list. Just so much fun and out there ideas. Can’t wait to see where this goes.

Black Cat #1 (Marvel) – She’s had a lot on her plate in recent years taking a bigger role in Marvel’s criminal underground. We want to see what she does in a solo series and where they take her character now.

Criminal #5 (Image Comics) – One, if not the, best comic out there right now. This is a perfect hopping on point so take advantage and find out why we praise it so much. A must for fans of crime/noir comics.

DCeased #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue had a nice zombie/horror vibe to it, though we’ve seen a lot of what was inside before. But, it hit the right beats and we want to see how it differentiates itself.

Ignited #1 (Humanoids/H1 Comics) – A whole new comic universe from a hell of a list of creators. Can’t wait to dive in and see what they’ve put together.

Lady Mechanika: Sangre #1

Lady Mechanika: Sangre #1 (Benitez Productions) – We’re fans of this steampunk-ish series. This new volume has her heading to the Spanish countryside to hunt a demonic creature.

Rust Belt (Secret Acres) – A look at the underemployed, the working poor, the dreamers of America’s post-industrial cities.

Thumbs #1 (Image Comics) – Tech-obsessed teens are directed to take on the government from the creative team of The Few. Yeah, we’re in.

The Walking Dead #192 (Image Comics/Skybound) – Did you read the last issue? You know why we want to read this one. We’re not spoiling it.

War of the Realms #5 (Marvel) – The event is up and down but we’ve come this far.
