Patsy-Walker-Hellcat

It’s the All-New, All-Different Marvel Rundown, but is it really? Is it really our weekly column where we take a look at all the #1’s in the brand new Marvel Universe? Or is it just a Patsy Walker A.K.A. Hellcat! #1 review? The answer it seems is both, as the only #1 from Marvel is Patsy Walker. With only two days before Christmas, the publisher really is shipping a lot of product this week via some huge comics like Daredevil #2, but it’s time to turn the spotlight towards this week’s brand new debut.

With the recent spotlight focused on the character in Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Marvel likely wanted to take advantage of her brief Netflix fame and giver her an ongoing series. However, the Patsy from that show is much much different from the Patsy that’s in the current Marvel Universe. Will Marvel amend they’re continuity to make room for that version of Hellcat, or will they keep the continuity the same? Perhaps a blend of both?

The answer for the most part seems to be that Marvel has indeed kept Patsy the same. Author Kate Leth (Power Up) tries her best to explain the complicated world of Hellcat to new readers, who will hopefully be able to grasp the broad strokes of her origin. Patsy has always been an oddity in the space of comics, which makes her addition to the She-Hulk/Wil Moss family of comics one that is a logical progression for the hero. Patsy might have a slightly different attitude in space of this comic, but this character is one who needs reestablishing for the modern Marvel Universe.

Kathryn Immonen’s solo series contained some zanier plots than what is seen in this take on Patsy analyzing the character in a slightly more down-to-earth approach. The comic takes a completely absurd hero from Marvel’s past and attempts to actually ground the adventures of Patsy in reality. The hero gets a job in this book and even finds a new apartment. This comic follows in the tradition of the zany Marvel titles that attempt to skirt the line with odd characters in normal situations (see Howard the Duck.) What does a z-list superhero with no college experience do for money in the Marvel Universe when Empire State University isn’t an option?

Then there’s the art of Brittany Williams (The Legend of Korra). The artists’ line work is incredibly smooth and clean, honoring the legacy of the other zany Marvel titles featuring a great foil to the cartoonish work of Erica Henderson and the stylistic curvy lines of Joe Quinones. Williams’ depiction of Patsy Walker’s streamlined new outfit makes her costume more believable than what readers may have seen previously. Megan Wilson’s colorful imagery instils the beauty of Williams’ nuanced simplicity.

While this may seem like an odd aside to add in a title about Patsy Walker, She-Hulk is proving to be an important umbrella in the Wil Moss Marvel titles. We have seen the character turn up again and again as a mother character to the weird All-New, All-Different Marvel books. I would love to see author Charles Soule and Javier Pulido revive the ongoing adventures of the hero.

This first issue is a solid new beginning for Patsy Walker and company, there’s only one more reservation I have towards the comic; it could use a twist on the ANAD formula. There are so many titles in the All-New, All-Different line featuring these weird characters including The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, the upcoming Unbelievable Gwenpool, Howard the Duck and more leaving me a little worried that Patsy herself might slip underneath the cracks beneath the weight of some of the other Marvel characters.

It would be advantageous to see Leth and Williams attempts to differentiate the solo adventures of Hellcat in future issues. Patsy Walker has returned to the pages of her own solo title. Under the attentive writing of Leth and the simplistically nuanced style from Williams, this comic is under good hands.

  1. This was a very impressive first issue as Leth not only managed to set up a good cast of characters and narrative but also found a way to incorporate a lot of the crazy Hellcat history into the story. I also found the art to be perfectly suited for the tone of the story as Williams took advantage of her style to play with the storytelling (like when characters would go into Chibi mode at times)

    This is one of the few All New All Different Marvel titles that seems to have lived up to the tagline!

    little livelier.
