- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 March #2
Catwoman is more than just an acrobatic, thieving antihero, and Myracle's take on her backstory does an intriguing job of complicating the iconic character. Selina Kyle's home life is terrible. Her mother's boyfriends terrorize her, and her mother does nothing to stop it. A few friends and a stony attitude make high school bearable, but an atrocious cruelty involving her stepdad and a kitten is the final straw, and soon she runs away, finding solace among a small group of burglars and perfecting her parkour skills. Myracle skillfully traces the origins of Selina's aloof distrust of attachment as well as her obvious longing for family. Goodhart's slick, stylish artwork, black-and-white with washes of dusky indigo, does an unusually good job of depicting action, and his realistic facial expressions beautifully telegraph emotion. This inaugural title in DC's YA imprint combines the deep character exploration typical of YA novels with the carefully unspooled and deliberately unresolved plot threads that fuel serial comics, and the compelling results should have ample appeal for fans of both. Grades 8-11. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
