Some people criticize this series because of Batman's characterization, Catwoman's portrayal and Tom King's storytelling. I think they are wrong. This series is something unique. No author has ever done something like that on this character. I've never thought that Batman could be written like this, being in love with Catwoman and doing everything he can to save her. But one of Tom King's greatest more
