“You’re asking me for favors now? Weren’t we on a break? Keeping out of each other’s business?” – Selina to Bruce
Nina Vakueva and Laura Braga provide a sleek look to Gotham and all the players in this war with the Magistrate. Their shading is outstanding, and a war-torn Catwoman pops off the page!
The enemy of my enemy is still my enemy? Selina thinks she can trust the Riddler, but this crew still stings from the Joker War. Ram V doesn’t forget anything in his scriptwriting and he enriches this book each and every time by showing these nuances in both script and his artists put those words into play!
Add in Clayface, Killer Croc, and Harley Quinn… Great stuff!
The Cat and Poison Ivy-the emotional meeting is perfect. The exchange before the battle. Transporting Ivy out of an endangered Gotham. The switching back and forth and the double-crossing…this book reads like a great movie!
Nothing! Again, the pace of this book is breakneck and while Joelle Jones accentuated the frames to tell more of the story than the actual script, Ram V finds the perfect balance to get your heart rate up! Another great entry into Ram V’s dedication to the character of Selina Kyle!
Ram V provides another cliffhanger… Holy Multiplicity Batman….whoops! Wrong book. Catwoman doesn’t only have Nine Lives…To be continued with the Wight Witch!
