One of the most powerful forces of nature is the ferocity of a mother protecting her young.
That makes it something awesome to see what happens when a couple of crooks try to come between Catwoman and her new kitten.
One of the most shocking revelations of DC Comics’ 2006 One Year Later event, which saw series fast forward 365 days and take their heroes and heroines to very different places, was that Selina Kyle, A.K.A. Catwoman is now a mommy.
On top of that, Selina has recruited her friend Holly to be the new female feline hero for the streets of Gotham City and she’s being targeted both for revenge by a killer and investigated by the cops for murder — both for Selina’s actions over a year ago.
When the killer and his accomplice find out where Selina lives and take her baby girl hostage they learn the lessons of nature the hard way. But after already committing one act of vengeance, will Selina kill again to protect her child and her secrets?
Oh yeah, and just who is that baby’s daddy?
Thanks to writer Will Pfeifer and artists David and Alvaro Lopez, Catwoman is definitely one of the most intriguing One Year Later titles and very much worth picking up in this collection.
