Not much bang for the buck (three-issue limited series in a hardcover package) but I got this very cheap and it was rather entertaining, so I'm not complaining too loudly.
Not a must-read, but not a complete waste of time, either.

Is it good in a general sense? Not particularly. But is it fairly entertaining considering the nonexistent expectations such a title begins with? Absolutely.

A fun light comedy featuring two of my favorite favorite Marvel characters, with art by the incomparable JML. Quick banter, goofy villains, lots of explosions, and even a little romance -- what more could you ask for?

I'm just sorry that this was only a three-part series; I'd love to see these two teamed up again, especially if the same creative team is involved.

*Bonus points to anyone who spots the Dawn cameo!

Fantastic plot, story, and a great ending. Great team up choice by Marvel!

These are two of my favorite comic book characters. I absolutely love the story line and these two have such great personality clashes. I can't wait to get the next one.

I'm not usually one for the super hero comics but I liked this story line. It was fun without being too over the top. A lot of references to other novels.

Amusing with very nice illustrations and entertaining snark.

Fun and entertaining. I love felicia s costume.
A nice basic take on the "Most Dangerous Game" story line where Wolverine and Black Cat are kidnapped to be hunted in some isolated island by rich folks. There is a nice twist when it is revealed who actually orchestrated the hunt. Black Cat really does look good in this volume (in terms of eye candy and just the overall look). The volume does include a sketchbook of the artist which goes into some of the decisions of the art. If you like the art, or you are someone who draws, appreciates drawin ...more

This Is Some Serious Garbage

You know that video of the girl walking through NYC getting catcalled for 10 hours? That's how this book starts, except the girl is Black Cat and the perv is Spider-Man. Why is Spider-Man in this book? He has nothing to do with the story. He just sets the stage for the grossness that follows. The writer managed to make a simple story convoluted by cutting to the end and then flashing back to the big escape scene, which makes no sense at all. Seriously one of the worst

I picked this up because I love Felicia Hardy and there's not enough of her in comics. Should've followed my misgivings on the cover art and not purchased it. Even though there's a comment in the back about how they wanted to de-emphasized her bustline, her bust is still drawn very prominently. In case anyone were to forget that people have nipples--well, don't worry, all the females in these pages have nipples carefully drawn. Otherwise we'd probably forget they had breasts at all! Story line w ...more

There are some nice witty lines in the dialog and the painted covers are quite good, but overall this "Most Dangerous Game" pastiche is a little slim for the price. The art reminds me of the kind of thing Richard Corben used to do back in the day, but I had trouble with the eyes; there are a couple of Spider-Man pages where he appears to have bugging-out bug eyes, and when Felicia is wearing her mask the whites of her eyes turn too-completely emerald green. It's not a bad book, there are some ni ...more

At first i was disappointed that Linsner was not coloring the book, but i quickly got used to the look and ended up thinking it was a nice fit and good compromise between his sesibilities and that of a mainstream superhero book. yes, it's been said that the story is simple. it IS simple, but it's not stupid. it's a fun romp. you know, comic books can just be fun. it's silly, funny, flirty and it's got decent action.

A fun little romp. Linsner's art is still great even though it's not in its usual painted form. I like his Black Cat redesign. Really becoming a fan of the character. Palmiotti and Gray put forth some great dialogue as usual. Read it if you're looking for something light and action packed, are a fan of Black Cat, or like watching Wolverine get blown up, poisoned, burn, eaten, etc.

This story needed to be a single issue, not a three. The concept is paper thin, which can be okay for a story going for fun, but this didn't work for me. Wolverine is overexposed and doesn't make for a fun read these days and Black Cat is terrible in this. Might be fun for some, but a pass for me.
So-so. Normally, I a fan of Wolverine but this just didn't do it for me. Team-ups can be a bit opportunistic and I don't recall the dynamic between Wolverine and his counterparts being anything special. Must be getting cynical in my middle age?

This was just fun, plain and simple. I really liked the chemistry between Black Cat and Spiderman and thought they did a good job exploring the dynamic between her and Wolverine. It is a random pairing, but it worked well.

A fun, sometimes funny read. No deep moral issues, just the Black Cat and Wolverine fighting for their lives.

Loved the humor in this collection. Had a fun time reading. Kind of fluffy, not a lot of substance but that's fine. Just a simple, enjoyable book.

Spider-Man and cyclops being outta character killed the whole thing, besides the paper thin plot. Not seeing why this even had to exist.

Solid, in a sort of childish way. It reads like an episode of something larger; nothing really fantastic, but nothing to really complain about, either, other than some terrible jokes.
