Catwoman #23

In the first half of a two-part story, Catwoman #23 takes Selina Kyle to Isla Nevada, an island filled with diamonds and violent criminals. And cats. Very large cats. The island's inhabitants also include a very 80s associate of Selina's holding a black market auction who needs help as several of his men have gone missing with locals believing a local legend is responsible.

While the auction draws Catwoman's interest, we never learn exactly what her business in Isla Nevada is before we find Selina in the jungle protecting a not-so-mythical large panther from a pair of Snow Flame's minions. You know what they say about good deeds...

Batman-less Catwoman stories often don't reach my comic stack, but the comic's choice to use a modified version of my favorite Catwoman costume did pique my interest. The issue works as a tease. Ending on a cliffhanger, any answers to Catwoman's trip, wardrobe choice, or the outcome of her attempted good deed will have to wait for another month.
