    This isn't a comic I'd recommend to just any casual reader - it's silly, and the plot barely holds together. But it's also fun, and there aren't enough comics like that out there. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Feb 10, 2009

    But, no, she's been out in the great wild world of spirits and totemic animals for the last three issues, and nary even a Sarah Palin joke in sight. She's too busy amusing herself to poke too much fun at others. She gets everyone to compromise, and seems from the letters page (which she answers personally) to be ready for her next starring role in a "romance," or perhaps in a model-icious comic. Which is sort of what this one was: a surreal mix of campy magic and near silly-animal heroics from start to finish. Somehow, Immonen kept it all frothy enough to stay afloat through all the whimsy, though a lot of the mystic hullabaloo was pretty hard to follow. Can Patsy settle down to a more conventional narrative and still be entertaining? Of course she can; even if she fails she won't stop trying. That's what heroes do. Read Full Review

    Immonen's Hellcat is a solid, fun mini-series with nice art that won't set your world on fire but isn't a waste of time and/or money, either.
