Are you ready to check up on Felicia Hardy? Black Cat had a big year with her appearance in Spider-Man's PlayStation 4 outing, and it is time the heroine really hopped back to the page. Today, Marvel Comics has announced an ongoing Black Cat series is coming this summer, and it will get into some high-strung heist drama.
The upcoming series will be penned by Jed Mackay while Travel Foreman oversees penciling. J. Scott Campbell created the cover, which can be seen below.
Black Cat’s solo outing will be grounded in a recent Marvel Comics run. The book will be spun from Amazing Spider-Man, which is ongoing at the publisher. This spinoff title will go live in June, so fans can look forward to more of Felicia Hardy this summer.
For those who haven’t kept up with Amazing Spider-Man’s latest run, the comic is about to pay a visit to Black Cat. Writer Nick Spencer will check in on Felicia when issue 16 hits shelves. The tie-in will see Black Cat reunite with Spider-Man after the vixen survives a run-in with the Thieves Guild and reconnects with her former friend. However, a new job will put everything in jeopardy, leaving Black Cat in a rather tense situation.
