Batman #5

If a song is to be written about this issue of Batman, I would call it 'Batman's Going Slightly Mad.'

Added this for all the cameos

I don't know if I'd go that far, but Capullo does do her justice. Did you see his drawing of her he did recently for an art print?

The only thing that bothers me is what I've been noticing with how everyone's drawing her lately--the fact that when zipped up there's this strip of her neck flashing. It just looks weird, like Selina left her cowl in the washing machine for too long.

I greatly disagree with that, too. It's a slightly different take, but there really is a lot of character depth in the current ongoing.

I think even if you take away the Lola stuff there's still some depth there--her relationship with Batman alone shows that, not to mention her temper and her head having conflict with her impulse when it comes to her life of crime. This, in my opinion, is the most interesting, conflicted, strongest take on Selina since Brubaker, and while they're approached very differently, I think they're about equal in terms of depth.

And I'll say that just because shallowness is part of a character's trait doesn't mean that the handling of said character is shallow.

Is it fleshtoned? In the post it appears to be a different fabric rather than skin, which makes sense, since a leather one-piece with a cowl would seriously restrict being able to turn your head.

I don't think so--it seriously looks like her cowl shrunk in the wash.

The pic in your post, yes, that looks like a shrunk cowl, but the in the main post, there seems to be no skin exposed.
