Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This kitten definitely has nine lives!

Last seen at death's door, Selina Kyle (a.k.a. Catwoman) has disappeared and is assumed dead. But the mysterious circumstances of her death draw the attention of a certain roughneck private eye — Slam Bradley! Selina's encounter with Slam convinces her to reclaim the mantle of Catwoman!

So, with a brazen new look and a new lease on life, Catwoman returns to the streets that spawned her — only to find that the street-walkers she calls friends are being preyed on by a serial killer. But with Catwoman back in town, the tables are about to be turned!

Catwoman: The Dark End of the Street collects the noir-ish Slam Bradley backup adventures from Detective Comics 759-762 and issues 1-4 of the momentous Catwoman relaunch.

Review:

"In just four smart, deft issues, Ed Brubaker and Darwyn Cooke manage to redefine and refresh the woman behind the mask, infusing Catwoman with a feminine strength, moral depth, and a real sense of identity. Her struggle for the everywoman instantly makes her a likeable hero and we find ourselves rooting for her from page one. A great read and an amazing start to a razor-sharp book!" Jim Lee

Review:

"Here at Big Planet, we?ve been talking pretty much non-stop about these two guys, Ed Brubaker and Darwyn Cooke, the one an incredible crime writer who?s taking Batman to new heights, the other a former storyboard artist for Batman: The Animated Series....This book is beautiful. And it?s even got that good story thing going for it." Big Planet Comics

Review:

"Brubaker and Cooke are telling a story in the old school pulp vein, with hard-boiled narration, sleazy characters, and a secret agenda for everyone involved." TheFourthRail.com

Review:

"If you aren't reading the new Catwoman, you really are missing out....This really is one of the best new series from either of the 'big two' companies in the past couple of years." iComics Reviews

Synopsis:

Selina Kyle — Catwoman — is missing and presumed dead. The mysterious circumstances of her death have drawn the attention of a private eye by the name of Slam Bradley. He follows the trail in an attempt to discover if this cat has one more life left.
