Great fun! I love this run & I'll get next one for sure. I'll for sure be the sucker who buys the hardback volumes too because I really enjoy this & I'll support it. It was great to see Black Cat again. I remember watching her as a kid in the Spider-Man cartoon, she was one of my favorite parts. The friendships are at the core of the entire story. Pretty refreshing that Hellcat is building her business & focusing on her friends rather then the usual romantic entanglement story-lines.
Oh yea, the cover is actually different, it has Black Cat on it & I actually prefer it to one shown by amazon. I attached actual cover, goodreads had the right one, so I wasn't surprised.
The storyline continues to be very readable, but there are two main problems with this collection. In the first book, we got a (mostly) complete storyline, although it ended with something of an outlying chapter. This collection resolves that first storyline, then delves into three others, one of which is left quite unresolved. One of the advantages of reading serial comics in graphic novel (or trade paperback) format is that you can read complete story arcs -- unfortunately this volume doesn't really give you that experience as it's more of a hodge-podge of story that ends in a major cliffhanger. The second problem is that Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat works well as a light-hearted read. This collection has a more dark and serious undertone as a result of the situation in the Civil War II storyline. That serious undertone conflicts oddly with the comical nature of the book and ultimately doesn't work well.
The artwork in the book is handled entirely by Brittney L. Williams and it continues to work well with the focus of the book.
Overall, this is a decent read. Not as good as the first collection, but not bad either. It probably deserves 2.5 stars, but I'm rounding up to 3.
The best thing about this volume was probably the development of the side characters, especially Patsy's roommate, Ian. The characters are developing a genuine, adult friendship, with an underlying theme of acceptance (and self-acceptance) - and if you want to take the acceptance of Ian's powers as a metaphor for acceptance of other aspects of Ian, it's probably intentional.
Still . . . this is a pretty middle of the road title. The story got more interesting in the last two issues, where Black Cat proves a decent villain, but the volume ends right before the two "cats" have their direct confrontation - and the art, the storytelling are just too uneven for me to really care what happens next. Even as it was starting to get better, the first volume set the bar pretty low, and unless you're a voracious comic reader, there are a lot of titles out there that will better reward your time.
