Marvel Relaunches Black Cat

Though her solo title was announced as going on hiatus at the start of August, Black Cat is returning sooner rather than later with a relaunch this December, kicking off with a tie-in to 'King in Black.' Series writer Jed MacKay and artist C.F. Villa are both returning for this new #1.

This new volume brings Felicia Hardy back into play just as Knull, the dark god of symbiote (and the titular King in Black) to Earth. Black Cat's involvement in the crossover, which has been brewing in writer Donny Cates's ongoing Venom series, was also previously teased, and with the announcement of the new series, Marvel has answered both the question of when Black Cat will return and how she'll factor into King in Black.

"Feeling lucky? Knull's attack on Earth interrupts the Black Cat's latest heist, and if you know Felicia, you know that's a problem. So the Cat and her crew aim to steal something of greatest value to both Knull and Earth's hope of survival," reads Marvel's official description of Black Cat #1.
