Stylish but thin.

Visually striking, but ultimately a little thin, this new presentation of Selina Kyle too easily treads well-worn paths. The characterization of Catwoman hints at comics continuity in ways which barely matter, while moving too quickly through harrowing emotional beats which could have grounded the story for real-world readers. Nearly unbearable emotional pain gets replaced with impossibly low-consequence physical suffering (a five story fall ends with two broken ribs, and maybe something else, and glossed with a single panel of a close-up grimace. This is a stylish collection, but very little seems to lie beneath the surface.
