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.

Felicia’s always been one of my favourite supporting characters in Amazing Spider-Man and — despite a number of mini-series over the years — I’ve always thought her character could stand on her own if given the chance with a solid creative team.

I’m not overly familiar with Jed Mackay’s work but I’ve followed Travel Foreman’s art over the years. The team’s work on Daughters of the Dragon was well received so I’m optimistic about Black Cat.

Felicia’s been put through the wringer lately — following her evil turn in the previous volume of Amazing Spider-Man. Nick Spencer’s done some damage control recently and this book will hopefully see her back on track and breaking away from the Spider-Man books for a while.
