Catwoman goes face to face with Kisin, a giant mythical cat only to learn that all cats stick together. Issue 24 brings us a diamond, a list, giant cats, 80's drug lords, and an emotional conclusion to the Isla Nevada adventure.
I do thoroughly enjoy Catwoman in Batman series, I love Bat and Cat together. However, I loved that Northcott took her out for a bit. Had her on her own adventure. Snowflame is such an interesting character, he is so 80’s and I am a sucker for nostalgia.
I believe the most important parts of the book weren’t really the meat of the story. There was a part were Selina woke up after being drugged and speared and had a conversation with Angelica’s Mother Liseth. Liseth is asking Selina why is she so far from the comforts of her castle. “I keep asking myself that same question.” It’s clear that Selina is struggling. Selina and her new friends at Isla Nevada come up with a plan to rid them of SnowFlame.
The writing is top shelf, its entertaining, it left me engaged in the story. If a book as me thinking of the story outside of reading it or reviewing it, you know the story has you. I remember grocery shopping and thinking about the ending comments from Selina in this issue. That being said I knew that it was a great storytelling if it had me thinking of the story outside reading.
The art seemed a little different from the last issue. I believe it’s because more blank space was used versus the last issue every page was covered by detailed art. However, that is not a complaint, merely an observation.
All things end well (unless you are Snowflame). We are left with Selina questioning who she is. She also has a list that she wants to see. She may find out what he really thinks about her. To me, this is the equivalent of going through your partner’s phone. More so, she struggles with who she is underneath the mask. I think we all struggle to find who we are. It was a very touching moment where she questions does she even want to know what he may think? Does it make it true? Is she even on the list?. It’s a lot to deal with especially when you are already questioning yourself.
Overall if you are a Catwoman fan this two-issue arc is for you. I really feel Northcott understands the essence of Catwoman and who she is. I would love to see the creative team continue with Catwoman.
(P/S the art in the city view is stunning).
Catwoman's Adventure in Isle Nevada is a fun read, but pay attention because there seems to be a little meaning behind small conversations. Northcott and the team write an outstanding Catwoman story.
