The art is phenomenal! I'm interested to see what this big plan is. We continue to see the emotional toll that Selina has taken from recent events. Doesn't explain why she did what she did, but that's not really for Jones to do. So far I'm enjoying this book.

I enjoyed "Catwoman" #1 quite a bit. Joelle Jones' art is absolutely gorgeous--her backgrounds, her facial expressions, the movement in her panels--she's one of the best in comics. The story worked for me as well--Jones only addresses the wedding in subtle ways through the story, not giving us explicit explanation of why she did what she did, so that the plot with the Catwoman imposters and the he more

What an amazing issue! Jones is on point. What a great start to the series. Fresh from dumping Bruce and leaving town. She's not feeling the greatest, and already peeps up in her grill; IRL and in the story. It's funny you people and your salty 1 reviews, lol. The new outfit is nice, simple yet chic. It contrasts well with the copycat wearin' the old threads. I also love the colours almost vintage more

I didn’t think I’d like Black Lightning coming into the picture, but it works for the context. Seems like maybe setting up an Outsiders deal. I’m not sold on the villain. What exactly are his powers? Do they all come from the mask? Why does he care who Batman hangs out with? Hopefully answers are coming. Also, I wouldn’t mind Batman getting back to going solo. It is outrageous that he has more

some of the action panels in the beginning with the fight between Cassandra vs. Karma were laid out really cool,
but the art really does suffer very badly in this issue.
the heads and faces are particularly distracting.
also, some of the hands looked like wet spaghetti.

the story is developing slowly, but it does have me intrigued to know who Karma is, how he knows Bruce, more

Welcome back anti-hero. It’s been too long. I like Jason Todd. I like his story. Someone who has gone through what he has would probably have no compunctions with killing. I hope he kills a lot of bad guys. Maybe even some bigger names. Artemis and he should be able to do some real damage.

That is a very valid comparison with "The Crow"

myconius - Jul 11, 2018

seeing Eric Draven act as tortured is more suitable as his tragedy had just happened. Batman has had years to focus his grief into being disciplined. becoming a master detective, tactician, scientist, martial artist. he'd have never accomplished any of those things had he been wallowing in self pity the whole time.
