Who would be dumb enough to try and set up Catwoman?

Selina Kyle is not a lady to be messed with so to try and set her up for murder, well that’s just not a good idea! I love the documentary style of this annual, all of the characters talking on camera as the story unfolds thanks to flashbacks from each character’s perspective.

Selina has possibly learned a few new tricks from her time with the worlds greatest detective as she sets about solving the case. Ok so some of her methods were 100 percent not from a batman playbook but all in all, I think he would be impressed with her skill and with her restraint in the outcome.

I really like how the wedding storyline hasn’t been forgotten and she still reacts to it throughout her own series as a few moments here her guard slips a little and it clearly still hurts which is a really nice touch to add to the character.

I loved seeing the differences in the crime scene as each character gave their version of events and how much of it depends on the persons recounting the scenes agenda. The ending was perfect as well using the documentary camera idea to the absolute fullest.
