    Word Of The Nerd - Zina Hutton Jan 25, 2016

    Hellcat #2 is amazing and I love every single thing about it. I adore comics that are a mix of genres (you know, how Grayson is a spy-superhero mashup?) and I think that Hellcat brings a lot to the table in terms of breathing life into the superhero genre. Here, Patsy isn't just a hero. She's a friend. She's a dork. She's hopelessly confused about life. And with a mysterious villain from Valkyrie's past coming to start trouble in their neck of the woods, she's going to have a lot more on her plate in the months to come! Read Full Review

    Hellcat #2 is cute, funny, painfully relatable, and even sets up possibly the raddest superhero team-up ever in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Hellcat is back, and her second issue is just as adorable and fun as her first! Leth and Williams dive in to the weird world of Patsy Walker with this issue, providing a frantic day at the mall. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas Jan 20, 2016

    For something lighthearted thats still rooted in history, pick up this issue. Kate Leth is definitely hitting an amazing groove in exploring Patsy and there are some subtle clues as to where to begin reading about her history. There are some amazing guest stars and some light jokes that carry the story, features that make this series stand out in this new wave of Marvel comics. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Jan 24, 2016

    Again, if you were a fan of Patsy on Jessica Jones you should get this book to see the difference in her start from comic books. This creative team gives Patsy a wide range of variety and humor that doesn't come across as much in the Netflix series. This book is still strong with disappointment nowhere in sight.

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Jan 21, 2016

    For the time being, I'm enjoyingHellcat. It's fun and quirky, sometimes to its detriment, but never quite enough to make it not worth reading. The character is far more interesting than I ever would have suspected, and the supporting cast adds a cool dynamic to the book. That being said, it's not exactly groundbreaking – it feels very, very familiar. While this isn't a problem, as it's not impacting my enjoyment of the book right now, I do fear that it could start to feel old. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 21, 2016

    After two issues I'm ready to accept that Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat just isn't the book for me. The series strives for a lighthearted, silly approach to the character, but spends too much time trying to ground Patsy in the mundane world rather than embracing her weird, outlandish side.

    LOL it's cute! It's not for everyone obviously but I'm glad it's not. Sometimes it's good to stray away from the common core of comics. Good job. Art is cartoonish,storyline is childish and the interactions between characters is on point. A solid read.

    this book took me by surprise with the first issue, but the second issue wasn’t quite as gripping as I had hoped for. I love the artwork, and I expect big things to come from this book going forward, but this issue felt basically like pure setup for the story to come. I love Kate Leth’s voice in this story, and I appreciate the fact that there are so many ladies working on this comic. I think that this book will get better from here on out (I hope, anyway) so im not going to hold this issue against the series as a whole, and I will be back next month. But before then, I will probably go back and re-read that first issue and enjoy it all over again- because it was just great!

    A difficult one to review. I quite enjoyed the story, although it's extremely lightweight. The art is abysmal and childish. The title is clearly aimed at young girls so I am not in the target audience. I always liked the character and do enjoy the references to the 60's romance series.
