Valuates her place in her home There's no way Selina and Dernell can Under the eBook #222 live under the same roof and since Dernell won't leave Selina mustFrom New York Times bestselling author Lauren Myr. 35 stars I want to go wherever I want to go and live however I want to live After all cats have nine lives I've only just begun Selina KyleAnother entry from the new DC Ink series I enjoyed Mera Tidebreaker just last month this title features teenage Selina Kyle in the days before her costumed career as Gotham's #1 'cat' burglar DC is mixing a young adult story with a superhero comic book for a true 'graphic novel' formatThis one is certainly serious than Mera Kyle uickly becomes hardened early in her life by experiencing domestic abuse and parental neglect and it's not just implied but shown full on in uncommonly realistic and harsh scenes One of the few positives in her life is a friendship with stout classmate Bruce Wayne of whom she observes Bruce has such a Superman complex But that sly reference both works and detracts from the story because while readers can correctly guess that Wayne will be one of the few honorable supporting characters in Under the Moon he DOES seem like he's written in the Clark Kent mold But that's a relatively minor uibble if really one at allKyle eventually runs away from home living a homeless suatting existence with copious amounts of petty theft natch and then aligns with a small crew planning higher risk crime Her language and general outlook on life become crude I was surprised but not offended by the inclusion some R rated profanity and she meets another girl who's life rivals hers in terms of childhood trauma At times Under the Moon uneasily mixes these current social crime issues with a plot that is actually sort of lightweight but yet the book still undeniably has a charm that made it worth reading

Under the Moon A Catwoman TaleSelina Kyle is fiercer Moon A PDFEPUB #189 than she knows For years she's put up with her mother's string of bad boyfriends but when Dernell her mom's current beau proves crueler than the others Selina ree. 🐱 35 stars 🐱Don't worry if like me you are unfamiliar with DC's Catwoman You'll still be able to enjoy this graphic novel a lotThe art was phenomenal and made everything come to life really nicely The writing was uite good as well but sometimes it was worth paying attention to what was going on in the panels rather than to the dialogue There were many great details hidden around and having Selina narrating throughout made me feel really close to and protective of herThe plot itself doesn't take up much of the story It serves its purpose and is uickly tucked away The side plots were what actually made this graphic novel interesting and the characters so fleshed out and relatable There was a lot of grief and despair hidden beneath the surface and what I was expecting to be a light tweeny retelling of Catwoman ended up being so much and evoking so many emotions It was surprisingly deepI truly felt for the girl and her companions There's an early scene in the book that was particularly hard to stomach and unknown to me many were to come A few trigger warnings animal abuse child abuse women abuse self harm sexual harassment bullying homophobia etc It's true that Selina is one tough cookie though and she was able to take care of herself and be independent without the help of others for the bigger part of the story which is uite commendable Then again Catwoman was always known for her independence and lack of ties with anyone so it only makes senseI like this teenage Selina and this teenage Bruce Wayne I'm glad they crossed paths in this story and had this weird dynamic going on Then again a Catwoman tale without Bruce Wayne would be a bit weird I'm glad she forged a few extra friendships along the way too and ended up becoming way invested than she wanted to A human side of her that was not often explored by the authorA few predictable plot twists here and there but I found they didn't make this graphic novel any less enjoyable It became surprisingly dark and was able to get under my skin despite not being terribly explicit uite the contrary It was that vagueness and elusiveness that made everything even creepierI wish some incidents had been explored and eventually addressed properly It just felt like the author used them once as catalysts to move the story forward and then completely forgot about them Maybe if there had been pages to do so with a satisfying conclusion and tying of loose ends I would have given the final half star it deservesOverall a uick and cool readBlog 🍫 Goodreads 🍫 Twitter 🍫 Instagram 🍫 Pinterest 🍫 Tumblr 🍫 Bloglovin'
