‘Catwoman’ #41 falls short with good working pieces, but so-so execution.
By
on
The penultimate issue of Tini Howard and Nico Leon’s first Catwoman story arc “Dangerous Liasons” is out this week in comic book shops. Can it top the excellent Catwoman #40, which mixed great action, mobster drama, and sexual tension? It’s a tall order!
Catwoman #41 has a lot of great pieces, but suffers a bit as it tries to do way too much with them. We left off with Catwoman finding out the mysterious masked vigilante Valmont killed a bunch of crime boss goons and this issue shows the boss is not happy. Valmont murdering a bunch of goons makes things a lot more dangerous for them as well as complicates Catwoman’s relationship. She’s not a killer, but she also doesn’t disagree they deserved to die.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Before the narrative can explore the complicated relationships of these characters, Onyx enters the story. As the cover shows, this issue also brings in Onyx, another Gotham vigilante who has the respect of Batman. Onyx acts as a sort of angel on Catwoman’s shoulder who is not happy about what Valmont did and how Catwoman is tied to him at all.

Catwoman #41 has good pieces, but the puzzle doesn’t quite come together. The problem starts with the frenetic start/stop scenes, the lack of closure in conversations, and the somewhat jarring digital art mixing in with more conventional-looking pieces.

There are good pieces at work here like Onyx entering the story and the work she does with Catwoman
Art can be astoundingly good at lighting and framing
Art can also be jarring at times as digital looking elements are inserted into scenes
Feels like it starts multiple ideas/conversations and never finishes them
Story jumps a around a lot from scene to scene
