ABOUT THE BOOK:
For years, Selina Kyle has prowled the skyline of Gotham City as its most famous thief, Catwoman. But when word spreads of Catwoman's demise, Selina decides to leave the costumed world behind and continue her trade cloaked in the shadows. Unable to enjoy her newfound anonymity for too long though, Selina decides that she must return to her infamous persona. Donning a new costume and attitude, Catwoman returns to the streets and sets her sights on the serial killer that has been preying upon the streetwalkers she calls friends.
This volume collects in chronological order an entire Catwoman epic from multiple award-winning creators Darwyn Cooke & Ed Brubaker.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Catwoman Volume one: Trail of the Catwoman is a 2012 DC Comics publication. (Originally published in 2008)
Because I named my new kitten, Selina, after Catwoman, it was only fitting that I catch up on a few Catwoman comics for fun. There are SO many to choose from, I had a hard time deciding where to begin. This one was on Hoopla and it seemed to be well received- so I thought this might be a good place to dive in.
This volume is hefty. Selina’s Big score, plus detective comics 759-762 = Three hundred + pages.
Why I am drawn to the Catwoman character is her complexity. She’s got a painful past, has not always walked on good side of the law, but is a character who wants to be a good person-at least in this volume of stories.
In this collection, Selina has faked her own death. She returns to Gotham City, has a little bit of a makeover, and then begins doing some detective work, hoping to find a serial killer targeting sex -workers.
The action takes place in the East End where the people need an equalizer of Catwoman’s caliber.
The first part of the novel is part heist, part noir, and sets the stage Selina/Catwoman’s new outlook on life.
I enjoyed the graphics, dialogue and stories included in this collection. I have even more angles of Catwoman to ponder on and found this volume to be entertaining and a nice diversion for me. Now on to Volume 2.
