Marvel Launches Patsy Walker (aka Hellcat) from Kate Leth and Brittney Williams!
Huzzah! According to a Yahoo exclusive, Marvel has announced a Hellcat series set to premiere this December, written by Kate Leth with art by Brittney Williams.
The series release will be timed to coincide with the launch of Netflix’s Marvel series Jessica Jones. Series editor Wil Moss explains,
Kate and Brittney are cooking up a series here that’s like a superhero version of Trainwreck or Broad City — a comedic and action-packed story about a woman figuring out her life. Except Abbi and Ilana have never had to deal with crime waves, a supervillain temp agency, or an ex who is literally the son of Satan.
Leth gave Yahoo some excellent background info on Patsy:
1. She’s a superhero martial-arts wiz that can sense mystical energy! She learned how to fight on the moon, so you know she’s good.
2. Out of the costume, she’s a twenty-something girl looking for work and purpose in New York City.
3. Her mom wrote weird romance comics — Patsy Walker! You can totally read them! — about her teen years and her childhood frenemy has reprinted them, as if being a superhero wasn’t enough to contend with!
