Reviewer’s Comments:
Selina Kyle thought the murder of her friend and colleague Lola was just a random act of violence. In the latest issue of Catwoman, she is beginning to wonder whether or not that’s the case.

As the issue opens up, she is out at night as usual but the teddy bear that was present at the scene of the murder turns up again; this time, it is an identical copy. She also sees what seems to be someone with a grin on the rooftop. She eventually realizes this to just be her shadow but she cannot be sure. Selina gets a new apartment for a reason not yet revealed, and she has a meeting for a possible job which leads her into a scavenger hunt of chess……. read the issue and you will know what I mean.

Ann Nocenti is really starting things off with a bang. Not only does she start the issue off with a literal “bang,” but she also manages to begin to play upon threads from Winick’s run which will hopefully lead down some interesting paths. She is going after more the personal angle of Kyle as established in her zero issue rather than the crime life orientation of Winick.

Rafa Sandoval does a good job as the new main artist. He does a good job with the curvy figure of Kyle that Guillem March established so well in his run on the book but also continues the classic look of the character. He is a good follow-up to March.

I am more hopeful about Nocenti and Sandoval than I was with the zero issue….. However, I still am wondering how much this Russian stuff with her name will affect her background as people are already pretty comfortable with the Italian-Falconi connection…. stay tuned!
