Format: Paperback
I will admit, as much as I enjoy Catwoman and the other Bat-family characters like Nightwing, Red Robin, and Batgirl...I'm a hard sell to pick up their individual comic series. I thoroughly enjoy reading about them, but outside of reading Batman by himself or for the purpose of reading about them for a major cross-over event, I just can't convince myself to spend money on picking up the other characters of the bat universe. But a friend of mine offered me this book at my comic shop for about 60% off, and coupled with the fact this was written by up-in-coming Ed Brubaker (at that time) with Darwin Cooke, well I decided to give it a shot. And for all intensive purposes, it was absolutely worth it.

CATWOMAN: TRAIL OF THE CATWOMAN collects:
Catwoman: Selina's Big Score
Catwoman (Book 1): The Dark End of the Street (Issues #1-4 and backups from Detective Comics #759-762)
Catwoman (Book 2): Crooked Little Town (Issues #5-9. Issue #10 and Secret Files and Origins not included here in C:TotC)

(If you want a better detail of the book, check on each of the links for more detailed reviews. I'll keep my descriptions short.)

"Selina's Big Score" is about Selina, who is considered "dead" and broke, coming back into Gotham to plan a big heist. The type of heist that she could retire off of. She gets a crew together for some help to plan this heist, including a guy named Stark that helped Selina become the person she is today.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The stories reprinted in this volume made huge waves in the comics scene when they were first published in the early 2000's. Darwyn Cooke and Ed Brubaker, both master storytellers whose resumes speak for themselves, took to the task of breathing new life into the Selina Kyle character, and the Catwoman for the modern generation was born.

The stories contained here have ties to both the 1990's "Catwoman" series, as well as "Batman: Year One", but give the reader plenty of information to maintain awareness of what is currently happening. In short--if you loved those previous stories, you'll love that they are referenced here...and if this is your first time reading Catwoman, you'll still be able to follow and enjoy this book!

Brubaker and Cooke managed to pinpoint the ideal Selina Kyle for the modern age here--an anti-hero who has seen more of the ugly side of life than Batman has, and therefore has less restrictions on what she will and will not resort to...but with enough heart to make a stand for those less capable than herself. "Robin Hood" definitely comes to mind as Catwoman takes it upon herself to defend people who Batman would deem, "Far from innocent, though victims."

This series took the industry by storm a decade ago, and gave Catwoman new legs to stand on even today. It only gets better from here, so hopefully enough people will buy this book so that DC makes it a priority to release a "Volume 2".

Format: Paperback
Premise: Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, has been out of town for a while. After faking her own death, she's been laying low, but now it's time to get control of her life again. She needs a big job to get back on her feet, before she can even think about whether she wants to let being Catwoman become part of her life again. Collects Selina's Big Score, Detective Comics (backup feature) 759-762 and Catwoman 1-9.

I adored this collection. The art, mostly by Darwyn Cooke, fits perfectly with the noir tone of the stories, and the mix of mystery, crime, romance and adventure is perfect for Catwoman.

The stories are split roughly into three sections, as they were published originally. The first is one complete story: Selina's Big Score. You can see the first few pages here. The second focuses on a private detective named Slam Bradley who's investigating the "death" of Selina Kyle and it takes place concurrently with the first section. The third section brings in more characters and starts a series of adventures about Selina starting to operate in Gotham again as Catwoman.

You don't have to know Catwoman's history to enjoy these stories; this was a bit of an in-continuity new start for her. I wasn't personally a huge fan of Catwoman's revamped origin circa Batman:Year One, but these stories reframe those pieces and later developments in a way that ties all the different takes on the character together, leaving a coherent story of a strong, complicated woman with friends, enemies, and a personal moral code.

The supporting characters fill out the stories without overwhelming the star. The return of her friend Holly in the second part is a good touch, I like bringing in Dr. Thompson, and the other new and re-purposed characters fit well into the setting.

Format: Paperback
Even if you're just starting out as a Catwoman fan, this is a great book to start with. After feeling a little disappointed with the "new" Catwoman DC has given us, I was happy to find this book in my comic store. Sure, I have 95% of the issues that are in this tpb, BUT it is sooo much easier to have it all together in one epic book! Plus I like reading the stories in one go in the tpb format, instead of going back and rereading the comics with all the ads and such. ^-^ But yeah, I missed out on a good portion of this Catwoman series (after the beginning) so I really hope we see them release it all!! I'd really love that. <3 And for the record, even though you can get it cheaper on Amazon, tooootally worth $30.
