Looks good!!

Why can't my kitty kat have her own creative team do her 25th issue? I always look forward to getting it in the mail. I am not looking forward to this at all...

They're hired help in Gotham. When have people like them actually done something useful?

Prediction: the best selling Catwoman issue in over 2 years.

Posted by ImagineMan16

Think if enough people buy this, DC might put Layman on the title full-time? Because I'm willing to buy a dozen of this issue if that's even a remote possibility.

A Catwoman issue with the Dodsons on the cover a decent artist for interiors and a writer that isn't Nocenti? I am on board for this! I love the character, but I couldn't handle Nocenti's writing and dropped it back in the spring. If they'd replace her already I'd be glad to pick it up again.

Posted by danhimself

is Nocenti off the title completely or just for this issue?

if she's off completely then I'll probably start reading it again but I don't see the point in getting excited for one issue only for the book to go back to being the worst book ever with the next issue

Unfortunately as for as I know, Nocenti will write the next three comics that will follow.

Stormtrooper training maybe?

Posted by Kelevra216

Ugh... Fine. I'll buy this.

Also, lol-ing at all the comments about the "stormtroopers in disguise because it's their zero year too."

Posted by Spock0

How many of these do I have to buy to make this the new creative team?

Posted by Immortal777

Let me guess Batman is in the issue as well.

Edited by LordoftheNorth

@immortal777: well it is a zero year tie in and batman has appeared in only twwo of these tie ins so who knows

Posted by NightFang

Interesting?

Posted by KnightofSteel

Is Layman onboard for a while? I hope so. And this issue...Lopresti on art. Wow I actually may be interested in new 52 Catwoman now.

Yeah, I check the solicits every month hoping my prayers will be answered and they'd give Selina a new writer, but sadly they never are. I don't think DC will keep Nocenti on forever. Especially if this Zero Year tie in does better than the normal issues.
I liked Judd Winnick's work on this title, but sadly he moved on and now we are left with whatever Nocenti is doing.

Layman for Catwoman 2014!
