    It is a fun, touching, and honestly very scary issue that makes me uncomfortable only because such a thing can happen in real life. It’s the kind of comic book that makes you think about how you use technology and media, while also forcing you to reflect on how far you are really willing to go to protect your friends and family. It’s a bit of a serious note for an issue that came out on my birthday, but I do still encourage everybody to give it a shot. I am looking forward to the next issue, and to seeing how Black Cat and Jackpot get out of this royal mess.

    A fledgling hero and a thief with some gold in their heart are together once more to face a mysterious new threat in Jackpot And Black Cat #1. An energetic, deep, and rich double sized debut for this miniseries that gives both title characters more of their deserved spotlight within the Marvel Universe.

    The writing I thought was done really well. The conversations flowed well, and nothing felt forced to me. It’s how I would imagine MJ and Felicia to interact in real life. I do wish we got to see a little more dialogue between them, showing them truly forming a friendship and not talking just because there’s a dangerous situation they have to solve.

    Emilio Laiso’s art works well throughout the issue, capturing the energy and style of the two superheroines as they navigate across very different parts of New York City. Felicia making her way through Chance’s casino and the ensuing escape is the highlight of Jackpot & Black Cat #1 and Laiso nails the action and character moments therein. Jackpot & Black Cat has the bones to be a solid superhero outing, but it needs to lay additional foundation on the structure of this issue to make it a real winner.
