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

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.

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...more

This is pretty bad and altogether not very good at all.
