Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Comic book origin stories can leave some readers thinking, "We know, let's get to the good stuff," but this early adventure of Catman differs enough from previous versions to avoid overfamiliarity. Lauren Myracle and Isaac Goodhart's take on Selina Kyle is tough, sharp, and sensitive, perhaps showing her at her most vulnerable. Selina and the supporting cast are well-defined and fascinating, both in the drawing and the plotting. There are some real rough edges, though: The violence and harsh language may disturb some younger readers. Older teens will appreciate the narrative's sass and tough-girl sensibility.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
