[quote]First off, let me tell you where I'm coming from with my reviews. This way you have something to base your reading of my reviews on.
I collect a gambit of comic genres; Marvel and DC mainstream stuff, Marvel's Icon, DC's Vertigo (my favorite overall), DC's Wildstorm, Image including Top Cow, IDW, Devil's Due, Zenescope, Dark Horse and several other Indys.
Here are examples of what I enjoy and think are really well done comics and would give high appraise: 'Y the Last Man, Walking Dead, 30 days of Night (first mini), Scalped, DMZ, Conan, Red Sonja, Mice Templar, Fell, Vinyl Underground, Captain America, Iron Fist, Ultimate Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man, Proof, Grimm Fairy Tales, Star Wars: Legacy, Witchblade, The Magdalena (my favorite character of all time), Pax Romana, Sojourn, Batman. There are more, but this should give you some idea of what I'm looking for in my comics.
One reviewer's opinion will not be the same as the next, thus I've provided you with the types of reading I like and enjoy. That is what I base my reviews on. If you read the above information and do not enjoy the same things as I, then my reviews will be garbage to you. So reviews, in my opinion are all relative to the reviewer's and the reader's taste.
Second, my reviews will be the culmination of stars between 1 and 5 (5 being the best) averaged over the subjects listed below.

Title: Patsy Walker: Hellcat
Mean, is my first reaction to this cover. Pissed off even. Anything but the real Patsy Walker imo. At least after having read the first issue I've ever read of this character. **
Interior Art: Pretty decent imo. Not great, but not bad either. A little so-so for me on this one. I could go either way. ***
Story dialogue: I haven't read any of the 50 state initiative stuff and I believe that's where this character originates from. This issue is my first for Patsy Walker. I kinda like her. She's got a witty sense of humor and some pretty up beat attitude thing going. Nothing like the cover image portraits imo. Sorta made me think of a little radioactive spider dude we all know and love at times. I'm not sure where this wierd polar bear story in Alaska is going, but I want to find out. I will probably not pay full price again for another issue, but will definitely look in the dollar bins for the rest of this mini. ***
Letters and page Layout: *****
Emotions invoked: Fun! Good times here. This is a very up beat, carefree approach to a super heroin's attitude. Here's to hoping she does well and I'd like to see more of her in the mainstream titles. ***
