    Joelle Jones delivers a great follow up tale to “Copycats” (https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...) in her Catwoman series! While the pacing of “Far From Gotham” is a bit slower than the first book, the story Jones crafted also sets up the reader for a tantalizing cliff-hanger of an ending that has me salivating for volume 3 already. Selina did everything she could to get away from Gotham, but that gloomy city just can’t seem to stay away Joelle Jones delivers a great follow up tale to “Copycats” (https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...) in her Catwoman series! While the pacing of “Far From Gotham” is a bit slower than the first book, the story Jones crafted also sets up the reader for a tantalizing cliff-hanger of an ending that has me salivating for volume 3 already. Selina did everything she could to get away from Gotham, but that gloomy city just can’t seem to stay away from her, as she finds out when she gets a little visit from her old “friend” the Penguin, who dangles two things in front of her nose: news from home and a heist a master thief simply can’t resist. This heist will put Selina back in the terrifying Raina Creel’s crosshair, as the deranged woman is looking for a way to get her favorite son back. The story is a little more uneven than in “Copycats”, and I think the nonlinear narrative is mainly to blame. The two extra little stories at the end are fun, but I would have preferred fewer pages and more story… As usual, Jones’ art compensates for most of her stories’ weaknesses by being slick, sexy and very dynamic. The action almost jumps right off the pages – which is what I really want out of a Catwoman comic. 3 and half stars, rounded up! Can’t wait to see what happens to Selina next!

    Love the art style, colouring and the storyline. I enjoyed this one just slightly less than Volume 1 but it was still pretty awesome. I'm absolutely going to continue reading this series.

    I feel like there are maybe six or ten pages in this book that do anything essential in advancing the story. The rest feel like filler: car chases, unnecessarily complicated thefts, and several blah side stories. The few pages drawn by Jones and the variant covers by Stanley "Artgerm" Lau are reason enough to pick this up for a quick browse though.

    Leider deutlich schwächer als Band 1, enttäuschend. Schwache drei Sterne :(

    Pretty good second volume from Jones. I think she's doing a nice job, but it's pretty jarring in the art department when Jones takes an issue (or several) off. Her art is part of the charm of this series, and it's not the same when she isn't doing double duty. The writing is fine, although it can be a bit hard to follow at times.

    This volume is a bit slower than the first but seems to be setting up some interesting story lines. There are some good character moments and I love the overall style of this book. Definitely worth the read if you enjoyed the first volume.

    Catwoman's adventure in Villa Hermosa continues to heat up, as the arrival of the Penguin and the continued machinations of Raina Creel make an easy life extremely difficult to find. The 7 issues of the main series collected here are all one big story, despite being touted as separate things. Selina maneuvers her way around the internal politics of Villa Hermosa, while the reason she came is explored a little more, as are her new supporting cast.

The 7 issues of the main series collected here are all one big story, despite being touted as separate things. Selina maneuvers her way around the internal politics of Villa Hermosa, while the reason she came is explored a little more, as are her new supporting cast. It does feel a little like we're spinning our wheels a bit because it takes a long time to get anywhere, but it's entertaining enough, and the art from Fernando Blanco (who steps in permanently since it appears Jones won't be writing and drawing the series any longer) keeps things suitably creepy - his Raina Creel is especially terrifying. Also included is Catwoman Annual #1, which is another story that takes bloody ages to get to the point. The inflated page count just exacerbates the problem, which is a shame because the idea of Catwoman training some proteges only for it all to go wrong would be an easy way to tie back in to Holly Robinson's presence during the whole Batman/Catwoman marriage fiasco. Catwoman's a good series, but it could do with a bit of a kick up the backside in terms of plot development.

    The majority of this volume delivers a strong continuation of this series. The final two issues--out of continuity with the rest of the story--are fine, but don't reach quite the same level of art or storytelling.

    Right now, the story is still fractured between what's actually going on with Catwoman and that extremely slow moving story around Raina. At the moment, it's just making the entire thing move very slowly, though I expect it'll all come together eventually.

    Nothing really happened. I mean things happened but they just weren't that interesting. It definitely moved at a slower pace than the first volume. Issue 9 was probably the standout of the volume. Selina still looked good though.

    Overall fine arc...but sometimes feels like it's jumping around. And I can't get it out of my head that eventually she needs to head back to Batman's story.

    Basically the same as my review for vol. 1.

    An uneven book that isn't as strong as the first volume, but still really fun. 3.5 stars

    Raina Creel is one of the best new DC villains. Creepy, cunning and someone you love to hate. And she won't go away.
