For 80 years, Catwoman has been baffling Gotham City’s heroes, both masked and unmasked, from the very beginning. The character’s first appearance alongside Batman in 1940’s Batman #1, Catwoman, has become an icon to millions of comic book fans. The undeniable magnetism between Batman and Catwoman has been one of comics’ most reliable constants: wherever Catwoman goes, Batman is sure to follow, if only to take her down. As deadly as she is beautiful, infamous cat burglar Selina Kyle uses her nine lives to walk the razor’s edge between light and darkness in Gotham City.
This April, the landmark 100-Page comic book celebrates DC’s feline fatale’s 80th anniversary, so readers are invited to a grand soiree that will be attended by some of comics’ top creators!

This special issue also marks the return of the Fan-Favorite Team of Ed Brubaker and Cameron Stewart, with a story that expands their monumental run with a new 12-page story, “The Art of Picking a Lock,” that takes place near the end of their original dynamic storyline that started with iconic storyteller Darwyn Cooke.
Also, no stranger himself to writing dangerous antiheroes, Harley Quinn co-creator Paul Dini debuts a new character for Selina Kyle’s anniversary in a story about an exotic cat taxidermist who intends to add Catwoman to their collection!
