    You Don't Read Comics

    The series continues a thoroughly enjoyable pounce through its first major plot arc with clever work by MacKay and Foreman on an enjoyable climb around the edges of the familiar. It’s a smarty unique look at the Marvel Universe fro the shadows with an appealing character who would appear right at home around the edges of almost any Marvel panel.

    There’s plenty of action, humor and excitement packed into Black Cat, especially in #5, but none of those reasons are why the book continues to work so well. Sure they help, but the success is all about the way Felicia’s character is written. She’s fiercely entertaining throughout and carries everything about this story on her shoulders.

    I really like this series, but I think the Sue and Johnny Storm bits of these last two issues out shined Black Cat and her team a bit. I’m left wanting Jed Mackay writing a Fantastic Four book (not completely a bad thing). I had a lot of fun reading this issue and really appreciated the abundance of onomatopeia from Delgado, but I really think the art was a little hurried here. Faces were not as well defined as previously. Just the line work over all didn’t seem as tight as previous issues.
