Bruce Wayne, was supposed to be a Playboy and a ladies man but when The Catwoman is around all of that is out the window as he only has eyes for Selina. Catwoman is twisted and close to the brink of insanity but she is also very aware of her role in dominating Batman and control is on her side of the street. Children, will read these stories and see it all in black and white as good vs. evil but this isn't for the kiddies. Catwoman, is from an adult world that isn't simple or straight-forward. The story of this woman of the shadows has been told over and over since ancient times and as the decades unfold the story of The Catwoman only becomes a hotter tale.
This book isn't a straight biography of Catwoman as the author and editors choose to make this all about design and style and this book plays to the strength of the subject as the sex is indeed here for all to see and it plays out from 1940 throught to 2003 with many, many images of a cat in transition but as Adam West states in the introduction this woman is all you need and desire and logic will lose when she is near. The danger is real but you want it! The text of this document is not an expose full of insight as the demons that drive Selina and there is no story found here to bring any new light into Catwoman's background.
This book isn't essential Bat-reading by any means but it sure is a lot of fun and done up in proper style to make little boys of all ages happy.
Three & 1/2 Stars!
If you're looking a sassy coffee table book with gorgeous artwork, this book is great. It's spunky, well-designed, and fun to look at. Don't expect much actual background information, though. It didn't offer any info about the various books she's been in. No information about who has written her and who has drawn her (beyond call-out quotes from some of these creators). I really would have liked credits and more descriptive text to accompany the artwork. The additional sketchbook pages were nice but ultimately not much more than what you get in the current comic.
Overall it really reminded me of a puff piece in a women's magazine like Cosmo Girl - very nice to look at, but light on information.
This book is a nice collectable..but dont buy it for research purposes, or expect any in depth commentary on the character. You'll be dissapointed.
The book is a very light read, touching upon the various aspects of the Catwoman character (comic and live-action) like origins, history, actresses playing the role, costumes, and the relationship to Batman. The artwork is what I particularly enjoyed as it featured photographs of the live-action Catwoman, as well as samples of vintage Catwoman comics and the animated-style Catwoman. The writing is reminiscent of something flirty and light-hearted like articles in Cosmo or Glamour.
Although the cutesy writing got annoying at times, I think it's a good buy for the money--especially for those who want to see how Catwoman has evolved over the years.
