Two years after escaping Gotham City’s slums, Selina Kyle returns as the mysterious and wealthy Holly Vanderhees. She quickly discovers that with Batman off on a vital mission, Batwing is left to hold back the tide of notorious criminals. Gotham City is ripe for the taking.
Meanwhile, Luke Fox wants to prove he has what it takes to help people in his role as Batwing. He targets a new thief on the prowl who seems cleverer than most. She has teamed up with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, and together they are wreaking havoc. This Catwoman may be Batwing’s undoing.
Why I’m Waiting:
I’ve made it very clear that I’m not a huge DC fan and honestly, when they first announced that they were doing a DC series in YA, I was skeptical. Then they announced that Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu and Sarah J Maas were writing them…I was sold. Then I saw the Wonder Woman movie and I was more sold. These are three talented ladies and I know how talented they are in writing. Warbringer (Warbringer) was fantastic and I seriously enjoyed Nightwalker (Batman) as well, so I’m seriously so insanely excited for Catwoman. Sarah J Maas is such a phenomenal author and I’m so ready for some girl power again. This once comes out in less than a week and I’m so ready for it. I preordered the book and got my super cool Catwoman pop socket and I love it. Sarah is going to write a great comic novel.
