    But Why Tho?

    Hellcat #3 continues to craft an intriguing mystery while building a deeply personal story for its protagonist. The complex narrative, deep emotions, and gorgeously assembled visuals continue to make it one of my most looked-forward-to books each month.

    You Don't Read Comics

    The amnesiac detective is a really fun trope to explore. It’s not attempted too often, but it’s always notably interesting when it IS…especially with a character who is as immersed in the darkness as Patsy Walker. Cantwell clearly has the series thoughtfully laid out. There are only two issues left to go before the big inevitable resolution. As disappointingly short as the series is, Cantwell’s writing through the third issue suggests that there’s a really sharply satisfying ending coming in late July.

    This issue serves as a disorienting, but still satisfying, zigzag through Patsy Walker’s past, present, and future. As the conspiracy at the center of the issue begins to further reveal itself, the result provides some enthralling character moments for Patsy, Sleepwalker, and more. While this isn’t the most polished issue of the run thus far, it still has me incredibly eager to see what Christopher Cantwell, Alex Lins, and company have in store next.

    Bring the popcorn and the Kleenex, ’cause you’re going to need both to tackle this giant-sized drama.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Hellcat #3 is not a good comic. There are too many subplots designed to add texture but lack substance, and the dialog-heavy issue relies too much upon quid-pro-quo exchanges between characters that ultimately lead nowhere. Couple the tedious writing with just serviceable art, and you wind up with a comic that’s a chore to read.
