Meow, Catwoman is bored of Alleytown and has returned to Gotham City proper for bigger fish to fry and to go back to doing what she does best…stealing crime boss secrets for blackmail and looking damn sexy while doing it, of course. New ongoing series writer Tini Howard makes her DCU series debut writing the cat of the night, placing Catwoman in her first blackmail heist disguised as a stripper at Gotham’s most secure underground club! Oh, Catwoman, hiding in plain sight in five-inch platform heels at a gathering of Gotham’s crime elite while surrounded by all the beautiful women and other shiny things to look at…what could possibly go wrong?

BONUS REVIEW by Shawn


What If? The new "era" of Catwoman raised the bar so much that it was perfectly vertical, and could be spun about on in a saucy fashion? Well, then you'd have a rare comic where the cover tells you exactly where the story goes, just with less rooftop and more Sopranos set. It looks as if the new direction of the book will be some combination of Darwyn Cooke characterization, a colorist who's figured out latex, and clean art that has the vibe of the Jim Balent run, but drawn with a smaller compass. The writing works here just as well as the pretty pictures, bringing a heist movie feel to a character that can often read as "will she or won't she?", to which the author responds with a resounding "She will, often, and with panache." Highly recommended for anybody interested in the mob structure of Gotham, fans of Batman Returns, and anybody who knows that Bruce Wayne should really step up that game, right quick.

I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
