Things have come to a head for Selina Kyle in Villa Hermosa. Between taking care of her sister and contending with all the crooks who cross her path looking to give her some bad luck, it’s enough to make a Catwoman go bad herself. So maybe she will? “Come now, Selina. Still playing the hero? Stop pretending you’re something you’re not.” It’s Lex Luthor’s words versus Catwoman’s will in this chapter of “The Offer”!
It’s new comic book day tomorrow! What’s everyone excited for? What do you plan on getting? Sound off in the comments. While you wait for tomorrow, and we’ve got some awesome posts today, here’s some comic news and reviews from around the web in our morning roundup.

Chaos reigns in Villa Hermosa as all the bad guys in town rush to fill the void left by the Creel family’s ouster. But as Raina Creel’s dark plot to resurrect her son comes to a gruesome crescendo, Catwoman may finally be able to put her foe down once and for all. That is, if she can reconcile her own past and find her footing again.
It wasn’t that long ago that we learned writer Tom King‘s run on Batman would be shifting to a new max-series Batman/Catwoman. From the initial announcement the series sounds like it’ll be the continuation of King’s intended conclusion to his Batman run focusing on the relationship between Batman and Catwoman.
We now have a new teaser for the series featuring a very interesting character… Phantasm!
Phantasm debuted in the 1993 animated film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. The story revolves around an early relationship in Bruce Wayne’s life.
The character has appeared in Batman Beyond 2.0 and as an action figure as well in comics in Batman & Robin Adventures Annual #1 in 1996.
We’ll find out more in January 2020.

Selina Kyle walks a fine line in the criminal underworld. A thief herself, she’s regularly on the wrong side of the law, while her personal life gives her crooked colleagues plenty of reason to distrust her. When Catwoman finds herself at the center of a dark plot full of violence and intrigue, she’ll have to decide which side she is on…and who she can trust. If a leopard can’t change its spots, and a leopard is a cat…can Catwoman ever escape her own destiny?
In 2019 it’s good to be bad for the villains of the DC Universe. “Dark Gifts” is the featured theme for August, as the vilest villains in the DC Universe take up Lex Luthor’s offer to be the ultimate versions of themselves, destroying their arch-foes—DC’s greatest heroes—in the process.
Fans will see immediate evidence of just how much trouble DC’s heroes are in with a series of covers featuring “battle-damaged” versions of their logos.
From Action Comics to Wonder Woman, these covers, combined with the distinctive “Year of the Villain” cover banner, provide a significant visual cue to the epic struggles within each issue, struggles that the heroes may not be able to overcome. As the Year of the Villain continues to escalate throughout September and beyond, the cover logos will sustain increased damage, leading to a line-wide villain takeover in November. Fans should be sure to check out the following titles when they hit shelves in August:
