Black Cat #6

The theme of Black Cat #6 is deals with the devil, so to speak. After the Black Fox's deal with the Guilded Saint, the Black Cat finds herself immortal but also watches as all of Manhattan begins being pulled into the Saint's lair as payment. Needing help, Felicia goes to the last person anyone would expect: Odessa Drake, the head of the New York branch of the Thieves Guild who Felicia was robbing to set-up the chain of events.

The issue includes a cameo of Spider-Man seeing Black Cat in the chaos. The cameo fits well into the story as it showcases another loss for Felicia whose heart breaks when lying to her former lover (and seeing him not question her word). That, along with her violent reaction to the Fox's betrayal (yikes, remind me never to double-cross Felicia Hardy), leaves Felicia in emotional turmoil.

Now working alongside Odessa Drake, the rival who Felicia has been antagonizing ever since the first issue of the last volume of Black Cat, can Felicia play the hero and save all of Manhattan from the Black Fox's devil bargain? And, if so, what will the cost be?
