Speaking of characterization, when the Joker tells Catwoman that she should stop being a Batman groupie, I think he has a point. Between her pining for Batman, her endless moaning about her rotten childhood, and all the good deed she does, Catwoman has become one of the least interesting supervillains in comic book lore. Beyond that, the current trend in DC to introduce cheesy love stories worthy of afternoon soap operas is on full display here in a sophomoric "I hate you/I love you" scene between the Bat and the Cat.
The self-consciously literary prose falls well short of the excellence for which it strives. When Batman says, "Even a lone wolf needs a pack sometimes," I had to guffaw. If a lone wolf needed a pack, it wouldn't be a lone wolf. As for the art, it would be nice for Selena Kyle to look like the same person for two panels in a row, but that doesn't happen. The only thing consistent about her from page to page are her ridiculously supersized breasts. Sometimes the sense of perspective was so bad that characters seemed to be growing and shrinking over the course of a page.
There are moments when the story's theme resonates, as when Selena Kyle struggles to get a grip on her identity, and the story moves briskly. About half of it (maybe less) is worth reading. The other half (maybe more) I could have done without.

Whoa! What happened!? Talk about a drop in quality! This train didn't just jump the rails, it dove head-long into the side of a barn! Yikes! This book is suddenly nothing like what it was before, and I can't even tell where it's going anymore!
I knew that Judd Winick was leaving this book after the first year was finished, but I truly expected better from veteran comic write Ann Nocenti! She has been writing comics for years, and most of those issue and characters written by her I enjoyed. On this title, though, she is really floundering and isn't sure what she wants to do with the character or what direction the book should be going it. While part of this is due (I'm sure) to the Death of the Family crossover that is thrusting its way into all comics that are centered in or peripheral to the world of Batman, I can't excuse what a mess she is making of things.
This book no longer has any direction or focus. I can't make heads nor tails of where it's going. The book is jam-packed with all sorts or rambling dialogue that gets us nowhere fast. We get another meaningless and joyless fight with Batman, an incomprehensible museum heist of mystical relics, two issues worth of pointless mind games with the Joker, and all sorts of other nonsense. Little is carried over from Winick's work, and that was some good stuff. This new stuff is a chore to read. If I see Nocenti's name on the next volume, I will be skipping it altogether.
Art on this book is decent, but definitely a step down from Guillem March. Sandoval seems to be trying his hardest to channel Marvel artist Joe Quesada. His characters have loads of detailed line work on their faces and Catwoman's swing lines and whips are impossibly long and swirly - looking more like Spider-Man's web-lines than taunt cords. I actually enjoyed the artwork from #0-issue artist Emanuela Lupacchino better than that of the main artist Rafa Sandoval. Lupacchino's softer line work and more feminine-looking Catwoman seemed better suited to this title.
Overall, this book was a huge disappointment. Enough so, that I will not be looking to pick up any more TPBs in this series until I see a new writer has been given the reins.
Cool Factor: 1/10
A real let down from what used to be a strong character. Go read something else.
