Review of Under The Moon: A Catwoman Tale by Lauren Myracle, Isaac Goodhart (Illustrator)

Under The Moon: A Catwoman Tale by Lauren Myracle, Isaac Goodhart (Illustrator)

Review: I would like to say first, is that I am not a huge fan of DC, I’m a Marvel girl through and through. But my interest was peaked at ALA by the cover of Under the Moon and cat ears being handed out with this book.  But, I found myself liking the artwork and writing style. There was also really good character development of Selina Kyle, and of her background story with her bad home life. Although, there were some holes in the story and I felt confused at times, as if I needed to read some of her comics and her history in the DC universe.

Favorite quote: NA

Would I? Reread? I don’t think so. Read more of this series? I think so. Recommend to others? If they like DC comics.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.

Edition: Paperback, 208 pages. I received this comic book  as an ARC at ALA from DC INK, in return for a truthful review. 

Comic. Young Adult. Fiction. Anti-hero. 

Expected publication: May 2019 by DC Ink.

SummaryWhen fourteen-year-old Selina Kyle, aka the future Catwoman, becomes homeless, she must confront questions of who she is and who she will become.

She rejects human cruelty, but sometimes it seems as though brute force is the only way to “win.” And if Selina is to survive on the streets, she must be tough. Can she find her humanity and reconcile toughness with her desire for community … and love?

From Lauren Myracle, the New York Times best-selling author of books like ttfn and ttyl, comes the story of a teenage Catwoman, as she struggles to find her own identity while living on the streets of Gotham.
