This week’s new Hellcat comic was good. It was just the kind of book I like. It’s written by Kate Leth, for crying out loud. But this first issue was severely cookie-cutter and not terribly inspired. It may be the issue of already enjoying too many comics like this already, and with nothing standing out, with no real hook, Hellcat may get lost in the shuffle. It should certainly get better now that it’s spent a whole issue essentially setting up the game board.
