Catwoman: Selina’s Big Score by Darwyn Cooke

Catwoman: Selina's Big Score Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, has fallen on hard times. She needs one more big score so that she can finally retire as a cat burgler and just watch her assets accumulate interest. So when her old Gotham City pawnshop pal Swifty hooks her up with an Afro-ed-out-to-there sister-friend who’s ready to give up the goods on her Italian Mafioso boyfriend, she knows she’s found the perfect score. But she’ll still need a little help from her friends, namely a grizzled, cranky ex-lover named Stark, a tall, dark and handsome charmer named Jeff, and strangely enough, a hard-boiled detective on the right side of the law named Slam. These three guys will all end up not just falling under Selina’s spell, but taking the fall for her when the gig goes all wrong and the Cat is left holding the bag. Brought to vivid life in blocky, 50’s-looking beatnik art, Selina is stunning, smart, and gratefully, not ridiculously busty. Besides being a terrific crime saga, Selina’s Big Score is such a beautiful piece of work that you’ll want to own the hardcover.
