*Marvel: From 1972, a complete (4-issue) run of the Cat (“Beware…The Claws of the Cat”, as it was also known), one of Marvel’s short-lived attempts at a female-led comics line, together with Night Nurse and Shanna the She-Devil. Written by Linda Fite, the story of Greer Grant Nelson’s physical and intellectual empowerment, as she changes from supressed housewife to super-heroine, is very much of its time, but notable for the prominent creators who contributed to its short run. Marie Severin, Jim Mooney, Paty Greer, Jim Starlin and Alan Weiss. Of particular note is Wally Wood’s superb embellishment of issue #1, making it the standout issue. Sadly, despite some intelligent writing and good intentions, the Cat failed to find an audience, and was swiftly cancelled, but she evolved into two more successful heroines: Greer herself became Tigra the Were-Woman, while Patsy Walker took up the discarded costume and became the happy-go-lucky Hellcat!
