Marvel Comics is putting together what looks to be one really fun project on December 23rd, 2015 with the debut of Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat!. The new book, giving a new life to a longtime character in the Marvel Universe, comes from writer Kate Leth (Adventure Time) and Brittney Williams (Lumberjanes). Marvel’s now revealed the finalized main cover, three of the variants and a few unlettered preview pages from it.
Plot concept: She’s managed to escape her past, her enemies and even the depths of Hell (literally), but nothing will prepare Patsy Walker for the hard knock life of job hunting in New York City! Being Hellcat is hard enough – why does being Patsy Walker have to be so hard too? Not to mention everyone’s going crazy for the reissue of the old romance comics that her mom wrote about Patsy’s actual teenage years. Getting recognized left and right is starting to cause trouble in both her personal and super hero life. But hey, nothing keeps Patsy down. She loves life, no matter what curveballs it throws at her. Get ready Marvel Universe – Patsy Walker’s here. And she’s ready to be your new favorite super hero.
