There are a couple of stories in this TPB. There's the Court of Owls story line that also involves some daggers and the Penguin. Catwoman also teams up with a guy named Spark (apparently he can disable electric stuff and drives very fast). At the same time that he's trying to get into Selina's world, Gwen, Catwoman's partner of sorts is trying to keep Selina sane and it's halfway working.

There's also another story. Someone is taking or kidnapping people, including street kids, off the streets of Gotham and then no one sees them again. Also the Cops aren't paying attention to the problem.

So, Catwoman, tries doing the right thing (she mostly sucks at it, but, it's sort of a good try). ( )

The Catwoman has persuaded Gwen Altamont to be her manager because, as she says repeatedly, “I guess I could have planned this all better.” Fortunately, she doesn’t take her advice often, for otherwise I wouldn’t have had a story to read. Her worst indiscretions? She forms a partnership with a young criminal with electrical powers, unware that he is an informer for dirty cops, and she plays hero when her mind should be on stealing. She interrupts the career of a madwoman who is kidnapping and murdering sex workers and homeless people, and, of all the people in Gotham, she saves the Penguin. I didn’t like the art as much as the story, but having her save the Penguin (and the Penguin save her) was worth an extra star. ( )

Really liked this collection for Catwoman, interesting new characters, freaky bad guy and Catwoman trying to be good is definitely fun to read. ( )

Read this one in a little greenhouse-style room atop a bed-and-breakfast on the outskirts of Wasilla, with breathtaking mountains on both sides, seated in a rocker made out of branches. Odd setting for reading about a metropolitan jewel thief, perhaps, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. ( )

Catwoman continues to be a fun title with a lot of action. Catwoman has her catty moments of course, but there is plenty of action for the guys to read as well. Almost anything Gotham is good and readable, and this is one of those cases. Not extraordinary, but definitely entertaining.

Adam's Review (4 stars): The adventures of Catwoman continue in Vol 2, adding new friends (Gwen and Spark) and a new villain (Dollhouse). Great artwork throughout and the storyline is pretty standard comic book stuff.
What makes this book stand out for me, is the character of Catwoman. Her witty banter, inner monologue, and outward flirty sexuality kept me interested and reading, all while the character herself continued to become emotionally deeper and more complex. A definite read for all Catwoman fans! ( )
