‘Catwoman #4’ (review)

Written by Joelle Jones
Illustrated by Joelle Jones, Fernando Blanco
Published by DC Comics

 

This issue starts off with a flashback to Selina’s past. It’s all catching up to her quick and she may not be able to survive it!

We see Selina’s mother and father arguing and her sitting on a sofa holding a cat. That first page of art by Blanco says a lot without words and it’s stunning.

From there, Jones takes us to the present day.

Catwoman is visiting her sister, Maggie, who is in a wheelchair.

They talk about their past together and what led to the Maggie ending up in the wheelchair and what happened to their relationship as a result of it.

Jones flashes back to the two of them as young adults, running around Gotham.

The time of year is Halloween and Selina has gotten both of them Halloween costumes. Selina’s, of course, is the early version of Catwoman.

They attend a Halloween parade. They then run afoul of some local hoods. Selina pulls a gun on them. It’s the first time that Maggie sees Selina be that aggressive. It’s a horrifying and well drawn sequence by Blanco again. It’s the strongest part of the issue by far.

The whole thing leads again to a cliffhanger of sorts. I’m not sure again where this is all leading. It kind of feels like it’s not leading anywhere. Maybe the next issue will answer some of the mysteries of the point of the four issues thus far and why Catwoman is being toyed with by the Creels. Or at least, I hope so.

RATING: B
