    You Don't Read Comics

    One issue. There’s one issue left to go in the series. Cantwell and company have just really gotten going on the series, and it’s over with Issue #5. The cleverly-crafted story is coming to an end, but Cantwell has found a really nice niche for Patsy that works so well with an area of the Marvel Universe that so rarely gets the right treatment. Hopefully, everything wraps up with a clear conclusion for the next issue. If all goes well, it would be cool to see Cantwell and Lins have another adventure with Patsy.

    Hellcat’s penultimate issue takes an already-great miniseries and makes it something stunning. Christopher Cantwell’s script flawlessly navigates through Patsy’s past, present, possible future with a nightmarish, but tender detail. The art from Alex Lins helps ground the preceedings in a necessary, but significantly scrappy way. I can not wait to see how this series comes to a close.

    But Why Tho?

    Bringing it all together, Hellcat #4 delivers on all the mystery and danger the previous issues have built up. Now with all the pieces in place, the only thing left to learn is if Patsy can make it through this incredible series’ finale next month.

    I anxiously await this finale, and I think it could be a moment to see Patsy like we never have before. Because we’ve only just begun to see the real Patsy in issue #4, and it’s a sight both terrifying and endlessly evocative, the purest sort of storytelling magic that comics needs more of pronto.

    Final Thought: Coming clean can be both a beautiful and horrific prospect.

    Hellcat #4 delivers oodles of exposition and dialog to answer every question but one – who killed Spalding? Still, the volume of answers and explanations is enough to make this issue reasonably satisfying, even if it isn’t particularly riveting or entertaining.
