Catwoman takes a job which is to steal Eclipso’s Black Diamond from a government facility called the Black Room.

Man, this book tips on that tightrope between quirky and gibberish so well Janelle Monae would be hella impressed.

That said, this is kind-of what I was hoping for with this book--Winnick's Selina by way of Guy Richie had it's charm (IMO), but when I first heard of this, I was expecting some more high stakes superhero thievery.

Man, Nocenti dialogue's a heck of a thing.

(The page with all the artifacts was greater for it, though.)

Yeah, the descriptions of all the weird artifacts was great--I forget where I saw it, but someone made a great observation that if she were to ever go on another book, she would totally fit something like House of Mystery.

Frankly, I'm more impressed by the contents of the average shop in Diagon Alley.

That dialogue is weird. Not necessarily bad, just really kind of strange to read. And Selina sure is using a lot of nicknames for that dude, I expect to see her call him variations on such classics as tiger, sport, slick, champ, chief, big fella, etc etc. in no time.
Also, I find myself with very little patience for Catwoman's arbitrary skepticism. Even accepting that this DCU isn't as far along the timeline as the previous one, so maybe people aren't as used to the idea of demons and alternate realities and so on, it still annoys me when people brush off stuff like that in a world where Superman and Wonder Woman are prominent public figures.

I think a number of the nicknames aren't from Selina, but from Eclipso.

I'm not sure how I feel about it, but, wow, Ann Nocenti graduated from the Jack Kirby school of dialogue. It really is its own animal.

I think all writers should spend a couple of days at that school.

Kirby's dialogue seemed overheated mostly because of the punctuation; unitalicize every third word and remove 90% of the exclamation points and it really wasn't bad. Ann Nocenti's dialogue really is overheated.

From: [personal profile] lissa_quon confusing. The posing, the dialogue...what. Selina supposed to have like pointed ears? Cause I'm seeing some weird ears on her.

I think something in the room is having an effect on her.

That and I want to see the Haunted Tank wake up. :p

Eclipso possessed people tend to get pointy ears and weird eyes...

Sorry to disappoint you kid, but there ain't no multiverse. We only got one path, Darwin, an' we're on it.

I can't wait to see her reaction to meeting Huntress.

I REALLY want to like this book... but the writing is all over the place.... at least Winick was coherent... between the nicknames and weird dialogue.... I'm lost

Aside from my other comments above, all that the first panel makes me think of is how most of your Olympic-level female gymnasts in the real world tend to have rather small chests.

With each issue of this book I feel like someone, somewhere, wondered aloud how Catwoman could get any worse and Ann Nocenti took it as a challenge.
