This book collects the first three appearences of Felicia Hardy, the Black Cat, Marvel's sorta/kinda Selina Kyle clone. All three were originally two-parters from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, written by Marv Wolfman, David Micheline, and Roger Stern, and drawn by Keith Pollard, Pablo Marcus, and John Romita, Jr. It's a good sampling of the best of mainline comics of thirty-some years ago, but shows some signs of dating... as it's entitled to, I suppose. In the first half of the second story written b ...more

The Black cat first appearance in the Amazing Spider-man series features a very important plot to Black Cat's affection towards Spider-Man. MUST READ
This book introduces the Black Cat, who is only trying to free her father from prison. She then continues to do crimes and is vastly misunderstood by Spiderman. He also quite fancies her a bit. Finally an intriguing female presence, not trying to be Catwoman but someone whose legacy means everything to her. A good read.
Now I know why I never read classic comics.
It's like watching a movie with a really bad cliche-riddled script.
Half of it's predictable and the other half is too random to make me care.
It's also annoying that the characters have to carry on the obvious narration in their dialogue. "Oh no, he flipped and knocked the gun from my hand!"
I guess it's great for little kids...except if it really is geared toward eight and nine year olds, what's with all the sexy women busting out of their spandex?

Meet Felicia Hardy, the Black Cat, otherwise known as Marvel's knock-off of DC's Catwoman. This volume collects her introduction as a cat burglar who seeks Spider-Man's affection whilst trying to steal and/or kill him depending on her mood. The art varies tremendously depending on the inker but is reprinted in glorious color. There are no end of other Spidey plotlines dangling in the background and Felicia, written badly, plays a screwy feline fatale past plausibility like many comics plots. Spi ...more

Black Cat's first appearance (ASM #194, 1979) and a few follow up adventures. This collects 6 issues, the first 4 by Marv Wolfman (nice name) and Keith Pollard, and the last 2 issues by Roger Stern and John Romita Jr.

Wolfman's stories introduce us to Black Cat, but Roger Stern is a much better writer (more noticeably in the dialogue and Spidey's quips) and it's always cool to see a modern day (iconic) artist like JR JR's early stuff.

Overall nothing mind blowing, but good little collection classi

Not bad, and I did like some parts of this comic. Black Cat is a pretty cool character! But I felt like the story didn't flow very well. (view spoiler)
This is pretty bad and altogether not very good at all.
