One of Batman's earliest foes--she fought the Caped Crusader in the very first issue of Batman in 1940--Catwoman has reformed into a jumpsuited vigilante who defends the defenseless in Gotham City. In the latest collection of her own comic, she and protege Holly take a road trip to raise their spirits after the dark events of the just-previous story arc. As they cross the country, they encounter other DC Comics characters, including Wildcat, Captain Cold, and Hawkman (back in Gotham, Batman puts in a cameo). Since Catwoman owes its appeal to being more a crime than a superhero comic, this ploy shouldn't work. But Brubaker keeps things low-key--Catwoman spends more time in mufti than costume--and this humanizes her costars, too. Artist Stewart matches Brubaker's tone with a style poised midway between original Catwoman artist Darwyn Cooke's animated-cartoon look and the noirish aura of Michael Lark in the Gotham Central collection, Half a Life (2005). The collaboration effectively lifts Wild Ride a notch above the rest of the Batman line. Gordon Flagg

The art on this is good but i doesn't seem as great as the earlier volumes. The storyline itself isn't too bad. It's nice to see Wildcat show up and train Holly. I've never really read JLA so Wildcat always shows up in a supporting roles. I do like him though. It's nice to see an older superhero who's still in the game. The other thing that I like about this is getting to see Holly have a happy moment. It's annoying to see characters just constantly beaten down in these kind of books, so when there are happy moments it's nice to savor them.
Brubaker's run is definitely worth checking out. He really writes the street level stuff like very few other writers in comics.
