Selina and Holly continue their no-rules, no-holds-barred road trip with a stopover in Keystone City. It's supposed to be a simple vacation, until a certain member of The Flash's Rogues Gallery blackmails Selina into helping him pull off a major score. "Wild Ride" part 2.

    This is the "Book of the Month" in Wizard, and my curiosity as to why that is has proved profitable. Fashions like these tend to raise the bar when it comes to reviewing other comics. It doesn't matter if you're a Catwoman fan or not---if you enjoy a brisk, rewarding story told in an exuberant manner, then this is written for you. Read Full Review

    A pretty entertaining little throwaway issue that benefits quite nicely from its guest-villain, as Ed Brubaker makes pretty good use of Captain Cold, and the change of scenery Keystone City provides. In fact if this tour of the DCU has done anything it's acted as a bit of a relief value, as the book had built up a little too much turmoil & angst, that I found I was having a hard time enjoying the series. Now I'm sure there's some formula in the comic writer's guide book that basically tells them how serious-minded a book can become before it turns the readers off the book, and I'm probably a happy little fanboy because this book simply overloaded the doom & gloom so this more lighthearted tone seems more impressive. Plus it certainly helps that this book offers up a fun little bit of action, as Catwoman is drafted into pulling off a job, and thanks to Captain Cold, the job turns into a firework show, instead of the stealthy, in & out job that she normally pulls.

    So let's summarize. Catwoman and Holly are present and in character; it's the twist that gives the book its third bullet. The artwork is decent, but the story does not make sense and carries little excitement. Captain Cold does not have to be in the story, and the false continuity seems forced. Read Full Review
