Users who pulled this comic:


  1. That’s a great cover!

  2. I -think- this is the only resurrected book I’ll get.  I may have pre-ordered Atom and Hawkman, can’t quite remember.   I’ve never heard of anyone in the solicit other than Adam Hughes, so I’m kind of worried.

  3. This is also the only resurrected book that I am getting. Would have been fun if Will Pfeifer and David Lopez had been the creative team though.

  4. I have no idea how I feel about this, but I’ll certainly give it a shot.

  5. I got the S.Squad and I’ll be getting the POWER of Shazam too so this is not the only resurrected book I’ll be getting.  Catwomen is the only book I was buying and enjoying when it was axxed.


    This book should be a fun one, I’m looking foward to it.

  6. Glad they brought back Adam Hughes to do the cover.

  7. Bebard? I thought this was supposed to be Nicieza.

  8. As we speak, Im currently plodding through all the old Catwoman issues. Im around the 30’s right now, where Brubaker is still writing, and I think Cameron Stewart is still on pencils. Needless to say, its becoming one of my favorite series, and I especially love the Stewart drawn issues. Catwoman has become one of my favorite characters, so I will pick this issue up without hesitation.

  9. I know my sudden appearence is a surprise, trust me I’m surprised as well. I wasn’t looking forward to reading this, cause the other one-shots seemed more interesting. But I went to my LCS and I picked it up anyways….

    It was my pick oddly enough. This had some great action and a good characterization of the women of Gotham. Seriously, this is what Gotham City Sirens should be, not the cheesecake factory it actually is. Anyways it had some great art in it as well. Little issue that there were four artists and three colortists; but it actually worked to have all of those people on board.

    So far it’s the surprise comic for me this year, cause I wasn’t expecting much at all out of this. Very good read and a tie-in that is a good deal to purchase.

  10. Oh my god I hated this issue. They’ve taken what could have been a great idea and told it in a manner which contradicts the characters. Also, Catwoman is my favorite character so naturally I feel a bit protective about how she and the characters around her are portrayed and needless to say I was not happy about the direction they took Maggie. Again, a total missed oppurtunity and the last page is as ridiculous and cliche as bad comics can get.

  11. @DarkKnight: How does this condradict the characters? I thought all of the girls in here are very smart and they know what they are doing. They’re not crying in a corner but actually fighting back something they know they can’t kill.

    I’ve never read this series beforehand so I can’t argue about Maggie. I just think it’s interesting she’s gone so over the deep end she will kill her sister.

  12. Pretty good. It’s a bit of a stock comic issue and probably not the same as how the book was before, but I enjoyed it. Tony Bedard is favorite of mine from his Exiles days. I gave his a generous 4/5. 

  13. Why was this resurected? I certainly hope the other ones, like the question and hawkman & the atom aren’t like this.

  14. Who else pictured a Nun-themed vigilante running around Gotham at the end of this this?

  15. @Slockhart I think there might already be one?

  16. I gave it a 4. While it was very decent story telling I had issues with the fact that psychological trauma that result in treatment from mental hospitals aren’t something someone can snap out of. It takes time because the mind is a conditioning mechanism and nothing ever just snaps but that’s just being a bit nitpicky. It’s one of those little things that irks you when you know the writer didn’t do research on the material.

  17. @TNC I chose this as my pick as well.

    The art in this and the writing was great.  To be honest, I like Catwoman, but haven’t read Gotham City Sirens or even her solo series.  This was enough to get me interested in her as a character and want to read more.  I’m sure I’ll be picking up the story that picks up where this left off.
