Josie Mac and Driver investigate the murder of a famous televangelist, and clues on the scene point to a certain fast-fingered feline. Josie must uncover the truth behind the murder while keeping her powers a secret in "On the Freak Beat" Part 1!
Michael Lark's departure was one of the most abrupt departures I've ever seen, as the story was released only a couple weeks back, and his final issue had already been shipped. Still he does turn in a wonderfully moody cover, that does a solid job of selling Catwoman's involvement in this adventure. As for the interior art, I have to say Jason Alexander's work is a little rougher around the edges, but he does a good job of keeping the photo-realistic visual style that made this book stand apart from the crowd, and helped to sell the more down-to-earth tone of the series. The art also does a wonderful job on its main action sequence, as the encounter between Josie Mac and Catwoman in the graveyard is a wonderfully choreographed bit of action that deftly presents the idea that Josie doesn't stand a chance. My only quibble with the art is that there are some panels where the lines under Josie's eyes are a little too pronounced. Read Full Review
