Catwoman Vol. 1: Trail of the Catwoman - Ed Brubaker, Darwyn Cooke You get a lot of bang for your buck in this trade. First, a reprint of Darwyn Cooke's Catwoman: Selina's Big Score, then a series of Slam Bradley shorts that were originally in the back pages of Detective Comics, and finally the first nine issues of Brubaker's Catwoman. They share a similar, noirish sensibility (especially Selina's Big Score, which is a pure heist story), stylish art, and a take on Catwoman that is part gentleman thief, part friend to the friendless. It's a great take on the character, one that I think makes sense considering her accumulated history and sensibilities. If you read and liked Gotham Central, you'll almost certainly like this take on Catwoman, too.
