    If you thought Patsy Walker a.k.a. Hellcat was just a goofy fun ride, this issue shows that it can go to some pretty sad places… And I love the book for it. While there are a few laughs to be had, this story revolves around the shockwaves of Civil War's affect those not involved, and how one copes with the loss of their best friend. The art is as great as usual, but the page where Patsy is at She-Hulk's bedside is very quiet and very powerful. I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Leth and Williams may have just brought on the best part of Civil War II (it's been so slow) with this tie in. This team does a great job at making Pasty Walker interesting outside of her superhero identity as well as giving her cast important developments too. Read Full Review

    Fortunately for us all, they also find time to be their special level of adorable. That flashback to the mugging and the pizza was great. But the real heart, of course, is in seeing Patsy react to tragedy. The character remains a uniquely amazing person, whether she's being awesome or being sad. I don't want to see Patsy Walker bogged down by too much sadness, but it's nice to know that everyone involved can rise to the challenge when it crashes down into their lives. Read Full Review

    Hellcat #8 has some incredibly touching flashback moments between Patsy and Jen, emphasizing the huge amount of heart this comic has, and its constant emphasis on healthy, empowering friendships between women. This issue just has a little more bitter balancing out the sweet, is all, and it's enjoyable in spite of and because of it. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jul 20, 2016

    InHellcat#8, Kate Leth, Brittney Williams, and RachelleRosenberg take a break from the battle between Hedy and Patsy to zero in on the relationship between Patsy and She-Hulk, and how Civil War II has affected it. And the issue is a fitting eulogy for the strong (Hopefully, she pulls through and has a solo title in the future.) It's a pretty emotionally devastating comic book with the slightest touch of light (No fireworks sadly.) at the end. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Jul 21, 2016

    This story doesn't deal directly withCivil War II, so it could operate fine without it being exclusive part of the event, but it's not a big deal. There's an immediate link to the story, even if the events did happen a couple of months ago. We're hoping Patsy will find her feet again and grow back into the strong character we all know and love, though it was intriguing to explore her mindset in this horrible situation. Read Full Review

    It's a tear jerker. She Hulk wasn't important in the major line ups or even on the streets. She was more aligned with the comical group. And she was usually the straight man to a lot of the zaniness. But now that's she's outta the picture how does Patsy take it. Not well but hey life needs to move on and that's what Jen would have wanted. It's actually great to see that Civil War II affected everyone in the universe. The story is sweet and Williams is on point as always. A great little nod to She Hulk.
