    So like I said before, it could be better. Not to say it's bad, but this isn't a book I would continue to read in hopes of it getting better when better hasn't come in a long time. Something interesting may come next issue though I couldn't keep my hopes up for it even if I wanted to. Read Full Review

    The one bright spot (very bright where Doctor Phosphorous is concerned) is the issue's art, provided by Rafa Sandoval (pencils), Scott McDaniel (breakdown), Jordi Tarragona, and Sonia Black. There's an exceptionally strong attention to detail from the very first page, while the inks and colors are fluid and vibrant. Unfortunately, the story doesn't live up to the strength of the visuals, so we'll see if Nocenti has what it takes to save this strangely plotted story. Read Full Review

    The art is the only real saving grace to this comic. Its purdy looking and nice, with the action scenes being intense and the emotions expressed well (most of the time). The comic does have its occasional flub (like the questionable body poses that Catwoman does), but nothing it does will distract or take you out of the comic, unlike the writing. Read Full Review

    This issue started strong but just seemed to fall apart halfway through; it's as if Nocenti didn't know the character of Doctor Phosphorus well enough to come up with a plot and just decided to throw whatever she felt like in there. It feels very out of place, and completely halts any momentum. Read Full Review

    Until this creative team is gone I suggest you turn to Justice League of America and occasional issues of Legends of the Dark Knight(issue #9 was excellent) for your Catwoman fix. Only there will you read good dialogue and see smart capers involving one of Gotham's most important characters. Read Full Review
