HELLCAT has been accused of murdering her new love, but as she seeks to clear her name, the mystery only deepens with the SLEEPWALKER on the scene! As her investigation continues, Patsy uncovers even more bizarre layers to the crime…and a far greater evil than she could have ever imagined lurking in the shadows!
But Why Tho?Hellcat #2 delivers the next step in the mystery surrounding Patsy Walker phenomenally. It is emotional, and it begins to pull at the strands of the plot introduced in the first issue while building out all new elements to keep the reader guessing what is truly going on.
ComicBook.comAfter an exceptional first issue, Hellcat is back to continue its twisty and satisfying murder mystery. Christopher Cantwell's script is nearly-effortless in its decades-spanning attempt to tell Patsy's story, and there's a genuine thrill in seeing his grasp on Patsy's characterization bleed through into different dynamics. Alex Lins' art feels a bit scrappier than in the first issue, but that ultimately works in the story's favor. Overall, this is an excellent installment.
Weird Science Marvel ComicsHellcat #2 is an oddly pointless issue that does little to solve the murder mystery at hand and spends a lot of time fleshing out irrelevant details about Patsy's past. Hellcat lovers may love this issue for the richness of details you get about Patsy's broken upbringing, but everyone else may find this issue lacking in substance.
