Catwoman: When in Rome 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 11 reviews.

It's rare to find a standalone catwoman story that's good, but this one is worth looking into. The riddler is also in this a lot. This story ties into dark victory. Very good comic

Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale are truly the dynamic duo of the comic book industry. What they did with Batman in The Long Halloween and Dark Victory, they have done here with Catwoman in When In Rome. This story takes place between the time of The Long Halloween and Dark Victory. It gives some great insights into the life of Selina Kyle aka Catwoman.

Catwoman leaves Gotham and travels to Rome to get away from Batman and dig into her past. Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale team up again for this story and while it's not as good as Dark Victory or The Long Halloween, the story is solid. The sexuality, humor, and mystery that link each chapter together are all excellent reasons to pick up this.

In this graphic Novel, Catwoman leaves Gothem City to go to Rome. Here she becomes involved in several battles. She has trouble figuring out which people she can and cannot trust. There is a ring in the story that supposedly gives a person all power. This ring is an important part of a lot of battles.This story would be good to use in a classroom because many students have already been introduced to these characters. It would be a good way for them to experience their first graphic novel. Also, it might be fun to have students write a summary in pictures instead of words. This would be to make them more cultured towards the graphic novels.This book was okay. It was pretty graphic and might not be suitable for all young adult readers. There is nudity and sexual references. There is also a lot of fighting that may be uncomfortable. Overall, I would not read this book again, but I may try another graphic novel.

This is the fourth story Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale have teamed up to do in [The Long Halloween] series featuring Batman. Like [The Long Halloween] this is great, mixing mystery, humour, romance in a truly entertaining blend.

This is a bookend (or rather a filler?) to Loeb and Sale's The Long Halloween and Dark Victory. When Catwoman disappears partway through Dark Victory, she goes to Rome to do some "research." She is accompanied by The Riddler, and receives assistance from an Italian hitman known as The Blonde (guess why?). While there, she discovers that other DC villains may have followed along. Catwoman is also linked to the murder of a Don and gets to steal from the Vatican... which should be on every tourist's list of things to do while in Italy.I liked this book, but I have a bias towards Catwoman. And the artwork is excellent, though not in the same style as Long Halloween/Dark Victory. The story is so-so. We all know what Selina/Catwoman is in Rome to find out, but it's still treated like a mystery, and it certainly didn't have the drawing power of figuring out who was the Holiday murderer. I also never found the Riddler as ominous as some other reviewers have said... mostly, I just thought he was pervy. So the final verdict is... if you like Catwoman and/or really enjoyed Loeb and Sale's other Batman stuff, you'll probably enjoy this. It works as a stand-alone, but I didn't think it was a must-read.

Finally someone is able to make Catwoman likeable. The only times I did like Catwoman was in the Tim Burton film, and Arkham City/Knight game.

This is one of the best solo Catwoman stories around and Jeph Loeb's take on Selina Kyle is always sexy, classy and overall fun. On a trip to Italy, Catwoman tries to explore her past while trying to steal an important ring. While there, she has Batman on the brain, mob hitman to contend with and a hidden conspiracy that won't reveal itself until the end. If you like Catwoman or the world of Batman, you have to pick this one up.

Usually the lack of Batman in a story is a bad thing, but not here. Selina is trying to crack a bit of a mystery on her own -- that mystery being who she really is -- and she heads to Italy with the Riddler in tow. The art was more stylistic than I usually go for, but not distractingly so. It worked for the story and the characters involved.

Very good read. I don't think it's a standout but it's fun and funny. Great action and you'll be impressed by her combat skills.

The Long Halloween and Dark Victory are some of the best Batman stories I have ever read, so I was ridiculously excited for this. However, it didn't quite deliver. Loeb's version of Selina here seems sexually amped up to the supposedly same version of her in those previously mentioned arcs. My daughter read the first two but I can't let her read this right now, so that's upsetting. Also, I saw the ending of this coming where I didn't in the others. Oh well, at least there is still some great Tim Sale art.
