Review of Black Cat: On the Run

Black Cat, Vol. 2: On The Run by Jed Mackay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ll give Mr. MacKay some credit – this volume read better than the first (an important lesson on continuing when you have the slightest pique of interest when reading). Toning back some of the absurd humor made the biggest difference and tying in a coherent plot. Felicia feels more like a coherent character rather than a random person in a series of vignettes. Black Fox has yet to step out of his cardboard shell, but he’s getting there. And the weaving together of so many other Marvel worlds feels strange but believable at the same time. (I suppose DC does the same thing, but it feels more evident in Black Cat). It’s enough of an improvement – and a greater enjoyment – to encourage me to stick with the series.

I speak the thoughts rattling around in my brain, sharing topics I think other people want and should hear (or are afraid to talk about themselves). I bring my personality and quirky state of mind to everything I write; serious topics shouldn't be devoid of humor. That includes my blog and freelance work (part of my charm). I've been writing for as long as I can remember. It's a source of solace and enjoyment for me. I'm lucky enough to call what I love my career - so it's NOT work! I live in Virginia with the Minions (four cats and a Greyhound) and my wonderful husband, who ensures I stay fed - no cereal for dinner - and as close to sane as I can get.
