Amazing Spider-Man Presents: Black Cat #1

Posted by matthewaos 04 July 2010

Everyone loves the black Cat, so let’s see if this mini-series starring her is worth it. Written by Jen Van Meter, with art by Javier Pulido, the first (out of four) issue seems enjoyable.

The Story

Nothing really complex. The Black Cat stoles some rings, though Spider-Man confronts her. They have “masks on” sex and Spidey tells her he will return the rings. Though unaware to him, the Black Cat kept the most valuable one.
Anastasia Kravinoff enters the story in a subplot that begins “several years ago”. Back in the present, someone is trying to frame the Black Cat for stealing some Russian artifacts. The Cat is innocent, but her associates want to clear this up for the better of everyone involved.
The Cat has set her trap and is ready to stop the burglar who frames her, when Spider-Man stops her, thinking that she is not innocent. The Cat is pissed and tells him that that thing they had is over.
Later, she is trying to learn some info from one of her associates, though she discovers he is killed. The phone rings and it’s the one that framed her.


I didn’t expect from this to be the best thing after Watchmen, so I found it interesting. A good simple story with the Black Cat is always enjoyable, and it left me waiting for the next issue. The art is a little cartoony for my tastes, but it fits well with the story I think.
On a side note, the Grim Hunt Prologue is amazing!
