Mini Reviews: Catwoman: Lonely City #4

Catwoman: Lonely City #4

Sometimes, the staff at Graphic Policy read more comics than we’re able to get reviewed. When that happens you’ll see a weekly feature compiling reviews of the comics, or graphic novels, we just didn’t get a chance to write a full one for.

These are Graphic Policy’s Mini Reviews and Recommendations.

Logan

Catwoman: Lonely City #4 (DC/Black Label) – Cliff Chiang wraps up Catwoman: Lonely City with virtuosic effort as Selina, Poison Ivy, and the non-rhyming Etrigan break into the Bat-Cave to find the mysterious Orpheus with Harvey Dent and his Bat-cops on their heels. Chiang balances the messy and explosive (A magic battle between Etrigan and Clarion!) and the deeply personal with Selina struggling to shut the door on this era of her life while also kick-starting a new, less fascistic era for Gotham. I’m not a big fan of the Selina/Riddler romance, but I do love her relationship with his daughter Edie, who becomes the new Catwoman in a series of gorgeously acrobatic pages. Catwoman: Lonely City definitely has “final Catwoman story” vibes, but a heartfelt epilogue shows she still has a role to play in Gotham with Chiang using a more colorful palette to show the changes that new mayor Barbara Gordon has brought to the city. All in all, Catwoman Lonely City is a touching, action-packed story about legacy, resisting authoritarianism, and finding family in unexpected places. Overall: 8.9 Verdict: Buy


Well, there you have it, folks. The reviews we didn’t quite get a chance to write. See you next week!

Please note that with some of the above comics, Graphic Policy was provided FREE copies for review. Where we purchased the comics, you’ll see an asterisk (*). If you don’t see that, you can infer the comic was a review copy. In cases where we were provided a review copy and we also purchased the comic you’ll see two asterisks (**).

ONE OF THE MOST ACCLAIMED BLACK LABEL SERIES EVER REACHES ITS CONCLUSION! All of the sacrifice-all of the broken bodies and shattered relationships-was leading up to this: Selina Kyle standing in front of the Batcave, desperate to know the secrets inside it, secrets once thought to have died with Batman. But you should never open doors you can’t close-if opening them means swinging wide the gates of Hell!
