Batman: One Bad Day: Catwoman by G. Willow Wilson & Jamie McElvie ~ a Review

by MK French

Selina Kyle as Catwoman is the greatest thief in Gotham City. She's stolen and fenced plenty of things, evading the GCPD and Batman. An item from her past is being sold for way more than it used to be worth, and now she must steal it back. Batman tries to stop her before she goes too far, and a mysterious figure known as the Forger will change Catwoman’s life forever.

G. Willow Wilson had written for the Poison Ivy and Ms. Marvel comics, and Jamie McElvie had inked many other comics including The Wicked and The Divine. (Go read all those!) The art is lovely and compliments the story very well. Selina's drawn so well, and I love her smirks and the movement in the panels of the comic. The item for sale was a brooch her mother had been forced to pawn, and the pawnbroker had lied about its worth. This is a quick story and one that makes you wonder more about the relationships in it. Batman and Catwoman are kind of together and don't stop each other from doing what they do best. The Forger isn't the weakling that Selina thought, and far more mysterious. But the interaction made Selina ponder the past, which wasn't what she normally does. This is a fun comic and a lead-in for more.

Born and raised in New York City, M.K. French started writing stories when very young, dreaming of different worlds and places to visit. She always had an interest in folklore, fairy tales, and the macabre, which has definitely influenced her work. She currently lives in the Midwest with her husband, three young children, and a golden retriever.
