    2. 3 star plot, 5 star artThe story wasn't some over-complicated mess, the panels weren't crammed with dialogue, and the art was lovely.However, anyone who thinks they may be offended by seeing Selina in her panties (a lot), is going to want to stay far away from this thing. Honestly, after looking at this, you'll think that her body-hugging catsuit is pretty prudish.In other words, go into this expecting to see an abundance of ass cheeks and boobiesd the boys in the stands go wild!The basic premis [...]

    3. I liked this. It was an interesting look at Selina Kyle outside of Gotham and in a different setting. She's in Rome trying to find out about her parentage. She teams up with a Mafia hitman and another odd partner in crime, and everytime she turns around, one of her Gotham City foes is attacking her. How is it all related? I think some parts were a bit confusing. The reasons why she was being attacked by what appeared to be Batman was explained, and I was like, okay. I didn't like what happen to [...]

    4. Catwoman: When in Rome is a six issue miniseries by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, the duo behind Batman: The Long Halloween and Batman: Dark Victory. The story actually takes place at the same time as Dark Victory: as things in Gotham continue to heat up, Selina decides to get the hell out of dodge and takes a trip to Italy.Taking Catwoman out of dark, claustrophobic Gotham and transporting her to Italy gives the story a different tone than your regular Batman fare, which I thought was refreshing. The [...]

    5. I loved Catwoman in this! I also loved the art - Catwoman in motion is fantastic. While she always seems to be fighting in various stages of undress (she sleeps naked, of course, with sheets artfully arranged, and then sometimes has to get right down to kicking ass), the illustrations of her in costume are so great that I don't mind too much.I also liked the writers' interpretation of Selina Kyle, as I generally like people who understand that eleven pairs of shoes is about the right amount of s [...]

    6. Really distinctive, unique art--beautiful, stylized, really gets the emotions, mood, and action across. The dialog is great too: snappy and clever, but not ridiculously so, and does not adhere to the usual noir cliches. And best of all, Catwoman shines. This is a book to remind one of everything there is to love about her. Self-sufficient, canny, but with a heart that sometimes comes into play. After being linked to a mob boss's death, Selena flees to Rome. But despite the city's reputation as a [...]

    7. Read this review and more on my blog.This mini-series has made Catwoman one of my favourite, if not my favourite, DC character.When In Rome takes Catwoman to Rome for reasons that do not become clear until the final pages.The art style was gorgeous, at times it felt like I was seeing Roman architecture. The colours used complimented the light-heart overall tone of this storyline.The actual story was an interesting one that kept me hooked through this 6 issue run. Just enough was told in each iss [...]

    8. Aunque me fascina el personaje de Catwoman, hay algo en este comic que hace que no termine de conectar con la historia. Entretenido, pero no de mis favoritos.

    9. One and a half stars.More cartoony than the Loeb and Sale Batman collaborations, this book is more like a caricature of noir than it is the real thing. The main selling point of the book--for those geeks who aren’t reading just to see the many ways the writer/artist team can make the ever-sexy female lead scantily clad--is that this is noir narrated by the femme fatale, something unique to the genre. That being said, the phrasing too often sacrifices making sense in order to fit the style. ( [...]

    10. For me, this was a three-star book, with one star added just because I love the art. I've read books pencilled by Tim Sale before, and I enjoy his layouts, his action panels, and use of silhouettes, but, for me, the art in this book was a step up because of the watercolor wash and coloring of Dave Stewart. The watercolor wash preserved Sale's pencils, but brought the art to a new level with the perfect color palette selections to capture Rome at sunset and at night. (Also, maybe just because the [...]

    11. Well, despite a lot of the reactions other readers have had to this, I loved it. But, then again, I've loved Catwoman for a long time, so a "solo story" was an exciting prospect for me. Plus, the Loeb/Sale team has been excellent, both in story-telling and in art. This is a follow-up in ways to The Long Halloween, in which Catwoman goes to Rome to try and scrounge up the truth about her parentage.The art style in here is very distinctive and clear, and was really a treat to enjoy. Unlike some co [...]

    12. First Catwoman series I've read and I loved it!This is the story of Selina Kyle looking for answers about her past. Taking place in between The Long Halloween and Dark Victory, this follows Selina on her 6-month journey to discover her parentage (and ties to the Italian mafia) while throwing some attempted murders her way.Even with this, my girl never loses her catty attitude and fills our ears (eyes since I'm raising) with snarky remarks and ass-kicking (mainly the Riddler).Although the ending [...]

    13. Tim Sale's art and Dave Stewart's colours could not make Jeph Loeb's script more than mildly interesting. This entirely skippable story adds nothing to Batman: Dark Victory, to which it is ostensibly connected. About the only things these books have in common are: Loeb, Sale, Catwoman, and the Riddler (okay, okay, Batman too!).

    14. 2 stars. Well, at least this was a really quick read. I was extremely disappointed with it honestly. The plot lacked any focus and was all over the place and Selina was void of any personality. Actually, all of the characters were very one dimensional which is unfortunate. The ending was rushed and anti-climatic and as an ‘origin’ story kind of about Selina’s life it just doesn’t work. It’s not terrible but definitely not necessary if you are a Catwoman fan.

    15. Fanático del duo Sale/Loeb, y sus historias en el mundo de Batman, y acá tenemos una historia rápida y sencilla de Selina Kyle viajando a Roma, acompañada del Acertijo para meterse en un mundo de mafia ,familias y crimen, mientras corre por su vida y en descubrir quienes son sus padres. La historia nos da a una excelente Selina/Catwoman, en una historia potente ,llena de giros y haciéndome querer a el personaje, mientras que el resto de la historia no esta a la altura, pareciera que falta a [...]

    17. It is difficult to get into the headspace of one-liners and farcical characters, but the art and the story are in keeping with the spirit of Catwoman. And it's gorgeous.

    18. Seems I've finally found a 'Catwoman' comic that I like.Catwoman as a character never caught my interest, even though I love cats, superheroines and anti-heroines. Maybe it's because she is overtly sexualized in pretty much every incarnation of her, as is to be expected of any "heroine" designed to appeal to the straight male demographic, which the patriarchy has made the default in mainstream entertainment. By the concept of Catwoman alone she is so easy to fetishize and cater to this niche, li [...]

    19. Reseña de Sergio Robla para Zona Negativa:zonanegativa/catwoman-Jeph Loeb y Tim Sale regresan al universo batmaniano que tantas alegrías les ha reportado para dar una enésima vuelta de tuerca a la historia de Carmine Falcone. Este mafioso de origen italiano fue creado por Frank Miller para su Batman Year One, aunque por entonces contó con un papel ínfimo fue gracias a Loeb que adquirió el suficiente peso en Batman El Largo Halloween como para que interviniese en la reciente película Batma [...]

    21. This is the second Catwoman trade paperback I've read so I can only compare it to the New 52's Catwoman Vol. 1. I wasn't sure how I felt about that one but wanted to see how Catwoman is handled in other hands, so I picked this up.It's hard to describe what I like best about this story without giving spoilers, but I'll say that we learn some interesting things about Selena that in itself makes the reading worthwhile. I also enjoy how she's written (with sass, style, and sex appeal), and the way h [...]

    22. This is a very beautiful book. The art is stunning, and the writing has a believable female tone to it for coming from a man.Reading this book, I felt that Catwoman had become the perfect female response to James Bond. Very glamorous, very action-packed, and very powerful.But, the plot failed. In the end, I felt this book was being used to bring in DC Universe cameos more than anything, and if you don't know a lot about Batman, you might find it confusing. It made me yearn for Jim Balent's writi [...]

    23. The duo that created Batman: The Long Halloween and Batman: Dark Victory also created this adventure of Catwoman that takes place between those two stories. Therefore, I would recommend reading The Long Halloween first to get the back-story in your mind. Otherwise, it might get kind of confusing with all of the different Italian names and "mob" characters mentioned. I loved how Selena's thoughts are scattered along on each page. It gives the story some humour and also some insight. The story has [...]

    24. When in Rome takes place during the happenings of The Dark Victory. So the good: Catwoman. you get a look into her sarcastic mind. she goes through many different suits and such, but it's the way she thinks that makes it awesome. The Bad: the story is a bit for the sake of having a catwoman centric story without a really thought out story. Like the Long Halloween, the ending is half assed reveal. it brings everything down. other than that though, it's a nice pick up to complete the Halloween tri [...]

    25. Ooooh, I liked this one. I liked how it went by the days of the week, and how Selina would say things like, no matter where you are in the world, on Mondays you have to start something, on Thursdays you're not finished yet, etc. I liked how Jeph Loeb incorporated a lot that fans wanted to see - but never would - by being creative with the storytelling. I liked, even, what the fear toxin did to her. Nice. I only hold back from 5 stars because there was a lightness and simplicity to it that made i [...]

    26. Hmmm, I really went back and forth between two stars or three for this one. It really was quite fun and Tim Sale's illustrations are delightful but perhaps not completely consistent? There were areas where the storytelling was a little flat, and where the art was was a tiny bit stilted/sigh, I'm going to go for two stars. And what may have tipped the scales is my cynicism at yet another strong female protagonist who was really just created by men to be a pin-up. In their defense, she really kick [...]

    27. A nice spin-off of the Long Halloween/Dark Victory arc. Tim Sale's artwork is as sleek and sensual as its protagonist, but the narrative lets it down. I don't think that it fully set up Catwoman as an entity, which leaves the ending hanging. And of course, I was shocked when Batman said the three small words to her, and even more mortified (but gratified?) to see the true conspirator behind the revelation. Riddler (the sidekick, hah!) didn't seem any more villainous to me than being a slimy old [...]

    28. Tie in to Batman: Dark Victory. I liked the setting and artwork for this story as Catwoman and The Riddler go to Rome to settle the mystery of Selina's past and her connections with the Falcone crime family. You should probably read Batman: The Long Halloween and Batman: Dark Victory first. Still, Catwoman more than holds her own in this side trip to Italy.

    29. I feel more like a 3.75 on this review, but I'm rounding up because 3 stars feels rude.This was a good comic. Not the best I've ever read, but it was a good entrance to Catwoman as a whole.
