The New 52: Catwoman

Out of all the “new” titles DC is pumping out, I only read two: Batgirl and Catwoman.

While hoards of people out there are shocked and dismayed by the rampant sex that is prancing through the pages of this comic series so far, I for one am not bothered by it. Traditionally Catwoman is a sexual character. In Batman Returns she was a deliciously sexy beast in a stitched up suit, and through the Batman history she’s always had a sexual thing with Batman. This comic just shoved it in your face.

Judd Winick has the character down better than anyone I’ve seen. She’s quick, witty, and you can’t help but to root for her. She is the perfect anti-hero in this comic. Above all else the art by Guillem March is amazing. I’ve been a fan of his since his work with Gotham City Sirens, and I’m thrilled he’s drawing the new Catwoman. He draws her with the dangerously sexy curves I’ve always fancied her to have. The duo have created a sexy and dangerous love interest (and foe) for Batman, and so far I love it.

The story so far is pretty basic. She pissed someone off, and is squatting from home to home. With the help of her pal Lola she seems to be good to go. That is untill a new villain–Bone–finds Lola and kills her. There’s much more to this story then that, and the comic is only 2 issues in.

Needless to say, so far so good.
