Review of Black Cat: All Dressed Up

Black Cat, Vol. 3: All Dressed Up by Jed Mackay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Okay, so MAYBE Black Cat is starting to grow on me. You simply can’t beat her sass and sarcasm, and, were she a real person, we’d get along thick as thieves. (Yup, went there)

The plotline still jumps around more than I care for, though. (Seriously, when did we get to the wedding arc?) A bridge from one idea to the next – preferably at the BEGINNING of the chapter – wouldn’t hurt. Trying to piece things together at the end gets confusing. I even went so far as to scour the panels for an asterisk directing me to another comic, loath as I am to switch to another character or storyline.

It is nice to see Mr. MacKay delving a bit more into Felicia’s crew, too. They’re so integral to the background operations, yet they’ve remained off to the sides. (And, I know, I’d probably know more if I read whatever Spider-Man volumes preceded Black Cat getting her own spinoff series. Not going to happen)

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 (it's 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 to do my career - so it's NOT work! I live in Virginia with the Minions (three 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.
