    Another entertaining issue is a series that has yet to offer up a disappointing issue. In fact since issue one this book has been a shining example of how to deliver a crime-fiction comic. The stories are full of action and intrigue, and are steeped in all the elements that make "film noir" my favorite movie genre. This latest story started off with a bang, and has managed to maintain the sense of excitement developed in the closing pages of the first issue. This issue also manages to incorporate Catwoman's past into the story, as we see her pull off a rather clever heist, that leaves the villains of this arc in a very bad way. I'm also quite curious to see how this theft is going to be used to clear Holly of the murder charges, as right now all it looks like it'll do is get the villains killed, which still leaves Holly as an accused cop-killer. The story also offers up a pretty solid action sequence, as Catwoman manages to plant a bomb on a moving vehicle without being seen. Read Full Review
