Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School–With images taken from the original DC Comics books, this montage spans more than 60 years of the femme fatale's career, beginning with her first appearance as "The Cat" in Batman #1. In classic DK style, each oversized spread highlights a different aspect of Catwoman's world, including family and friends, weaponry, her crimes, homes, modes of transport, her catsuit, and her on-again/off-again relationship with Batman. Also included is a six-page time line that covers, in depth, all the major events of her career. Fans of Catwoman, as well as Batman, will be asking for this guide. Keep in mind that, unlike previous books in the series, this title has overtly sexual images.–Karen T. Bilton, Somerset County Library, Bridgewater, NJ

From Booklist

Reviewed with Simon Furman's Transformers.

Gr. 6-12. What kind of equipment does Catwoman carry? Where did the Transformers come from? How did Catwoman become who she is? These two oversize, illustration-rich books, on slick paper typical of DK, have all the answers, allowing new readers to come into an established comic character's world without wondering what they have missed. They are also a great way for fans to revisit or understand more about a character's background. In Catwoman the art is lush and varied, covering nearly 65 years of history. transformers uses art to great effect to provide "technical" specs of the robots that readers know and love or want to learn about.

Looking through this book made me all too aware of how comics have changed since I was a kid. As a tie-in to the upcoming Halle Barre movie, Dowling Kindersley has released this visual companion. The latest in their comic book and cartoon volumes; most of which have been fun to read and a pictorial treat.
While the research has always been first-rate, and I can't fathom the hours that were spent selecting the pictures; I have to confess that all the different interpretations of Catwoman would be confusing to the first time reader, and I'm not really referring to the character's different outfits.
For me the most fun is looking at the time, and I wish Mr. McCloud would spend a few more pages on it. For Catwoman, I would have loved a bit more discussion of the pre-Crisis (no longer in continuity) Helena Wayne/Huntress character that was Catwoman and Batman's daughter in another reality. And I would have appreciated a few panels from the Marshall/Englehart seventies storylinea, and more from the animated series version
Mr. Brubaker, current writer of the Catwoman comic book, does a great job with his introduction to the text. And again Mr. McCloud shows his editoral talent and research ability. But I find myself missing the brigher colors and storylines of my youth in contrast to today's issues.
After reading several of this DK visual guides, I have to confess I'm still looking forward to a few more volumes in the future. They can be fun.

Format: Hardcover
This book provides a light overview of Catwoman. And I mean light overvwiew. I noticed that most of the examples used by the author, Scott Beatty, to outline Selina's life and who she is comes from stories by Jeph Loeb. Primarily Batman: The Long Halloween, Batman Dark Victory and Batman Hush.

Please note Jeph Loeb has to have done one of the worst portrayals Catwoman ever. His portrayal of her is very unflattering...he writes her as if she belongs in an adult movie. Trust me Catwoman is much more than that.

If you are really interested in Catwoman I suggest that you pick up "Catwoman, The Life and Times of a Feline Fatale" by Suzan Colon. Then you'll get the real deal on who Selina "Catwoman" Kyle is.
