Catwoman #83

To my surprise, Poison Ivy makes an appearance in the one-issue revival of Catwoman #83. This issue (apparently) ties in to the DC Comics "Blackest Night" storyline.

The offical DC Comics solicitation: "As if the chaos and mayhem of Gotham City's blackout wasn't enough, Catwoman faces a dead villain that she was responsible for killing – the original Black Mask!

Will this attack against the body and soul of Selina Kyle prove to be too much for the feline femme fatale? And can she come to grips with killing (again) a possibly unkillable foe? Find out in another of this month's one-issue revivals of classic DC Universe titles!"

All I can say is -- the Sirens aren't havin' it! This issue reminded me a lot of the Gotham Girls adventures. Especially when you see the action packed panels with all three women giving it their all. The art by Julian Lopez and Bit is gorgeous. I've become a huge fan of this more painterly style. However, the official solicitation claims that the cover was done by Guillem March when it's clearly an Adam Hughes illustration.

I'm not sure how this is going to fit into Gotham City Sirens continuity (if at all). The last issue of Gotham City Sirens (#7 "Holiday Story") made no mention of this swerve. Either way I say pick it up -- it's great.
