If you re expecting a Catwoman origin story or some superheroics you couldn t be wrong It almost feels like a bait and switch because if I changed Selina Kyle s name in the book and removed A Catwoman Tale from the title I d give odds you wouldn t know this was supposed to be about Catwoman This is a book about an abused runaway who becomes a thief through circumstances beyond her control There s also some subplots that go absolutely nowhere and a tacked on ending that made it feel like there wasn t really an end to the book at all There s a LOT of cursing in the book Multiple f bombs and references to penises I wasn t offended or anything but it felt very out of place in a DC comic geared towards 8th graders when their comics are certainly way censured and mainly written for older audiencesIsaac Goodheart s art was very solid I dug the blue monochromatic art Received a review copy from DC and NetGalley All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned

Under the Moon A Catwoman Tale Read & Download É 107 Free read â eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB · Lauren Myracle Read & Download Under the Moon A Catwoman Tale Yracle ttyl and artist Isaac Goodhart comes a story about learning how to survive the world when you've been forced to abandon your home and finding allies in the most unexpected moment. Selina Kyle is constantly victimized by her mother s horrible live in boyfriends Her current love Dernell seems to be around to stay Selina has endured his temper and abuse for two years At school she has three friends read aspeople she doesn t consider jerksAngie Tristan andBruce Wayne But high school isn t her only worry People in Gotham are being violently murdered by a monster called The Gotham Growler Sharp Teeth ripping claws savage attacks The kids at school are scared Selina isn t scared She already knows the world is full of monsters She leaves home vowing to become stealthy and aloof never allowing anyone to victimize her again My husband is a huge comic book fan He knows the backstory and details of nearly every DC and Marvel character I love comics too but as a child I wasn t allowed to read them My parents didn t let me to read superhero comics To this day I m not sure why My best guess is that the considered them violent and inappropriate reading for a girl eyeroll I ve been grown up for years now and can read what I wantso slowly I m starting to enjoy comics and appreciate the art and storylines I m no expert like my husband Sometimes that s a disadvantage But when it comes to new visions of established characters I see it as a positive thing I can read reboots and updates with new eyes and enjoy them for the fascinating story rather than being disappointed that an old storyline is getting a reboot I love this new introduction to Selina Kyle It follows the framework of the old storyline but updates it to appeal to a new younger audience Positives firstThe art in this book is awesome The dark blues and shadowy hues work perfectly for a Catwoman story I like the plot and most of the changes in the story character I felt so sorry for Selina when she endured so much at the hands of her mother s bad boyfriendsand loved seeing her grow into a strong character My favorite character in the story is hands down Selina s new friend Ojo Definitely a Parkour enthusiast Ojo is an awesome character that really brings the updated feel home Her other new friends Briar Rose and Yang are interesting additions to the story as well They form a family of sorts for Selina who has learned to withdraw from any emotional ties It added a nice depth to the character I do understand that this story might be a bit of a drastic departure from the norm for some Catwoman fans There have been other recent Catwoman stories published that are completely different I haven t read any of themso this is secondhand information and this new book does not follow the character or story continuity very much at all This version of Selina Kyle is only 14 She is a runaway a high school dropout and makes some pretty rough decisions self harm living homeless joining a gang of street kids etc There are changes to the characterbut I liked the differences After looking at other reviews I see that some did not Not every story or comic book will appeal to every reader Now a few concerns This story is definitely aimed at a younger YA audienceso why all the cussing And at one point Selina gets angry and yells about boys being dicks followed up by a string of rather graphic penis references I m not sure that is something a 13 14 year old would be mature enough to read I do understand that kids cussI have a middle school age boy at home so I m well aware But I think putting the F word repeatedly into a graphic novel aimed at 13 year olds is a bit much The storyline gets a bit rough in placesa dead kitten some rather rough child abuse etc I would start the age range for this book at 15 Older teens can handle the cussing and strong plot Might be a bit too rough for younger kids It all depends on maturity level Some kids are mature than others Parental guidance suggested That being saidI remember how much I hated my parents trying to protect me from things I didn t need protection from Kids cuss Kids say rather graphic things to each other on a daily basis at school And they are witness to real and fake violence at pretty high levels these days Sodespite the fact I was surprised at the F word popping out in this graphic novelthat word is in just about every Youtube video television show and social media post that kids see these days I ve played video games with my son on public servers before and heard kids that sounded really young spouting off torrents of cussing that were beyond even what I could string together SoI suppose even those limits are relaxed and change with the times Still not sure that the F word was entirely necessary thoughbut I also recognize that I am way way outside the target age range for this graphic novel I would change the title to Under the Moon A Catgirl Tale to be honest Selina takes that nicknamewhy not run with it Selina is very young in this story and just learning how to take care of herself In my mind Catwoman conjures up images of a woman who already knows her way around and has her street smarts at max In this story Selina finds herself homeless and has to learn to find her way Definitely of a Catgirl All in all an enjoyable graphic novel I liked the new approach to the characterI voluntarily read an advance readers copy of this book from DC Comics via NetGalley All opinions expressed are entirely my own
