    A lot is going on here. McKay is working on a story with many moving parts that never comes across as being too busy or cluttered with supporting details. It all feels very deftly paced as Black Cat concludes the first half of the first year of her own title. It’s been an exciting journey across the shadows of the Marvel Universe thus far. Where McKay takes the series in the second half of his first year with Felicia shows every sign of being a really, really interesting place once everything has finally settled into place come next summer.

    For those who think that Felicia Hardy is only Selina Kyle lite, this title shows us a bit more of the feline personality which is quite different than anything we“ve seen in Selina. This Black Cat is clearly not just a knock off of the Cat as her personality gets fleshed out a little more in this tale. However, it“s not all fun and games as we reach the end of this issue and discover” to be continued!

    The two storlyines unfold at simultaneously as Felicia enjoys her evening and the Fox runs from the Thieves Guild. It’s good she enjoyed her night off, because now that her mentor has been captured, the Black Cat needs to get back in the game. Worth a look.

    How is Black Cat always this much fun? This issue focuses mainly on a date between Felicia and a mercenary that she knows won’t go anywhere long term, but her inner-monologue creates an interesting narrative from start to finish. This iteration of Felicia continues to be devilishly entertaining, even when there’s not much else going on around her.

    Comics: The Gathering

    When the Black Cat goes on a date, Felicia’s yen for mischief and the Thieves’ Guild meddling with her mentor ensure that the story can’t wind up boring. Continued excellence in writing teams up with an outstanding serving of guest art to dance a complex storytelling jig. Previous issues proved that this take on Felicia was compelling; #6 shows that this volume has space for some intriguing improvisation while it continues to develop its bigger plot.

    This was a good “breather” issue of Black Cat. It was nice to see the softer side of Felicia; I just wish Jed MacKay would have truly let her have a night off. Dowling’s character art ”leaped” off the page, perhaps more so because of the dull backgrounds. That said, the cliffhanger didn’t wow me, but I am already invested enough for the eventual Thieves Guild heist to keep reading.
