Description

After leaving Batman at the altar, Selina Kyle leaves town to lick her breakup wounds in Villa Hermosa--a city almost as cold and corrupt as Gotham.

But soon after moving, she discovers her new neighborhood already has a Catwoman--and the impostor is wanted by the local police! Selina barely has time to settle in before she's the subject of a citywide manhunt, after eyewitnesses place Catwoman at the center of a brutal crime spree.

Still reeling from the aftermath of the wedding-that-wasn't, Catwoman will have to put off processing her feelings about her breakup while she instead figures out who's been stealing her look--and why. If she can't catch the copycat and clear her name, this former villain might end up behind bars--but for someone else's crimes!

Catwoman Vol. 1: Copycats collects the first six issues of the stunning new ongoing series, written and drawn by Eisner Award nominee Joëlle Jones (Supergirl: Being Super, Batman).

Praise For Catwoman Vol. 1: Copycats

“Captur[es] that signature blend of danger and sex appeal that makes for great Catwoman stories.” —IGN 

Stunning to look at and engaging to read. It’s a great start to a promising new series.” —Comicosity
 
“Joëlle Jones’ Catwoman wastes no time in setting up the new status quo for the character.” —CBR

“Joelle Jones writing and art are both fantastic.” —Syfy Wire

"As conceived by Jones (Lady Killer) and Fernando Blanco (Midnight and Apollo), Catwoman is sultry and morose; still reeling from her failed relationship with Batman, she’s more human than cat. Insight into her past helps flesh her character out and explains the motivation behind some of her actions. This arc is timely considering recent interest in female superheroes’ stories, and would be a good fit for any adult collection." —School Library Journal
