    A pretty solid final chapter to this tour of the secondary cities of the DCU, and unlike last issue's visit to Opal City this time out Selina gets the opportunity to interact with the heroes that call this city home. Now this isn't exactly an action-packed affair, as except for a throwaway battle in the opening pages against the hapless assassins that are dogging Catwoman's heels, this issue is a pretty subdue affair. However, we do get some answers when it comes to the group that is making a habit of getting knocked around by Selina, as Hawkman is on hand to provide a rather dry, but fairly informative history lesson on what Selina managed to stumble into the middle of. The final pages of this issue also show us the big secret that has been driving this arc, as we not only learn the identity of the mystery man Selina was tracking down, but we also learn why. There's also some fun moments of interaction between Catwoman and Wildcat, and Hawkman's infamous sense of humor is put to good Read Full Review

    Catwoman's terrific artwork balances out, in reference to the whole, the scattershot characterization. The well-written dialogue balances out DC's overall Swiss cheese continuity. One story element however tips the scales in Catwoman's favor. While most of DC's books have a mood that's as dark as an oil stain, this issue of Catwoman fosters a mercilessly upbeat attitude. The optimism and ebulient tone does not quit, and Mr. Brubaker demonstrates that you can tweak a book to a appeal to a sophisticated audience without losing the sense of wonder that iconic of heroes are supposed to instill.
