Marvel has announced a new ongoing series titled Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat to be released as part of the All-New, All-Different Marvel. This isn’t the first time Patsy Walker has gotten her own series, there was a Hellcat mini-series in 2000 and a Patsy Walker: Hellcat mini-series in 2008. It is however the first time she’s starred in an ongoing series since her original book that started in 1945. The book is scheduled to be written by Kate Leth (Adventure Time) with art by Brittney Williams (Lumberjanes), and it will be released in December. We have some information from the press release below:
"I want to continue the thread of her being the kind of girl who calls you up out of the blue and you always say yes, because it's an adventure," says Leth. "She's a super hero martial-arts wiz that can sense mystical energy! She learned how to fight on the moon, so you KNOW she's good at what she does and has the history to back it up."
Beginning her heroic career with the Avengers and then becoming a core member of the Defenders, Hellcat's new series will be inviting readers into a no-nonsense journey following this kick-ass super hero as she tries to make a name for herself alongside some of the most powerful Marvel heroines around.
"With this series, Kate and Brittney are going to provide a unique spin on the super hero, providing readers with a Patsy Walker who is both supremely relatable and supremely awesome," says editor Wil Moss. "And look for guest appearances by all of Marvel's top female heroes, including She-Hulk, Kate Bishop, Captain Marvel and maybe even the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl!" This December, Patsy Walker plans to claw her way to the top no matter what it takes! Be here for this brand new, action-packed series as this feline femme fatale reestablishes herself among Marvel's mightiest within in the pages of PATSY WALKER, A.K.A. HELLCAT!
