But there is more to this cat than meets the eye, as she displays some abilities that are every cat lover’s nightmare. Yet at the same time, she displays remarkable intelligence in tracking down Poppinjay’s lair and freeing the captive girl (with the assistance of Rocket Dog).
It’s a simple story that fans of the old Batman series will enjoy. It’s not high camp, like Batman or ElectroWoman, but it has that old-fashioned style of a hero and sidekick tracking down a criminal mastermind. Good old-fashioned crime fighting, without being all dark and gritty.
The art by Rick Leonardi and Ande Parks is terrific. I’m used to seeing Parks inking Phil Hester’s work. As much as his inks compliment Hester’s work, it’s clear here that he is not beholden to any one penciler. Park’s inks make anybody’s pencils look better, without obscuring what makes them unique.
