    I don't know who this is but it certainly isn't Catwoman. A few of the trappings are there, but far to much of the her background has been changed for no good reason for it to be enjoyable. And the subtitle makes no sense at all since it is never referenced even incidentally in the text, so poor work all around. I don't know who this is but it certainly isn't Catwoman.

    This has the exact same plot as the novel, which I still absolutely love, but I just don't get as much emotion when reading graphic novels so it wasn't quite as good for me. I really enjoyed the art style though and would recommend it.

    I really liked this story, but also.. I'm kind of surprised. I thought they originally wanted this "series" (and I use that term loosely) to be able to cross over eventually? I don't think this book and the Batman one could cross over, but.. who knows. Still, good story, though. I'll have to read the actual book eventually. It's on my list.

    Such a great adaptation! I do think the novel is overall better (and more people seriously need to read it, I love it SO MUCH), but I still loved this graphic novel version of the story.

She gets in trouble with the police but is rescued by Talia al Ghul and taken to the League of Assassins for several years of intense training. She returns to Gotham in disguise as Catwoman...but why is she back? Soulstealer also focuses on Luke Fox who is Batwing (Bruce/Batman is out of town) and dealing with PTSD and Catwoman's rise to infamy. I am a long-time fan of DC and was pleased to see Luke getting more of a focus since he's pretty much forgotten within the Batfamily lore for some reason. He's fleshed out very well here and I like the PTSD addition and how it is incorporated in the story. This is a very stupid nitpick but I couldn't understand why he was paired off with Selina. It's hard to take this pairing seriously since Bruce/Selina have been dating since the 50s....how do you compete with that? That said, it was well-written here, it's just my nit-pickiness not letting me really enjoy the relationship. I especially LOVED the Gotham City Sirens (Harley, Ivy, Selina) misadventures in the book, they were my favorite parts! Their banter was great and I liked that Harley was still having trouble being 'free' of the Joker. They were all very human characters which I loved. The artwork was fantastic and fit the story very well. I especially like how the style was 'gritty' which is befitting of Gotham. Great graphic novel and a great introduction to Gotham City and its various criminals while fleshing them all out.

    Thank you NetGalley, DC Comics and Sarah J Maas for giving me the opportunity to read and review this title before publishing. I have a lot to say, beginning with: I ADORED this story. The scene: this is an off-canon Selina Kyle/Catwoman story that essentially takes a “what if Selina Kyle was never up against Batman, but one of his protégés? And what if she trained with the league of assassins?” and let me tell you, this was a wonderful idea. I am a Batman and Bat-family fanatic. I’ve read almost Thank you NetGalley, DC Comics and Sarah J Maas for giving me the opportunity to read and review this title before publishing. I have a lot to say, beginning with: I ADORED this story. The scene: this is an off-canon Selina Kyle/Catwoman story that essentially takes a “what if Selina Kyle was never up against Batman, but one of his protégés? And what if she trained with the league of assassins?” and let me tell you, this was a wonderful idea. I am a Batman and Bat-family fanatic. I’ve read almost every major Batman story written at this point, and a number of Catwoman led stories as well. I’ve never seen this particular approach. It does something different with her origins and her story in Gotham while still staying very true to the roots of who she is. Sometimes creative liberties taken with “what if?” stories end up seeming like an entirely different character, and sometimes that works, but I certainly don’t always prefer it. This story takes the Selina Kyle we know and love and puts a new spin on her. Not to mention: gives her a new love-to-hate rival and love interest. This story was thrilling and captivating, and I had no trouble finishing the entire book in a day. The team up with Poison Ivy and Harley is kick-ass and full of girl power, without getting anywhere near campy. Selina is morally grey (but I’ll always maintain that she’s closer to the lighter side,) and she cares for her own those she knows have suffered first and foremost. The art: for the most part, I was dazzled by the art in this novel. The gala scene, at around page 100, with Selina in the red dress and dancing with Luke with the lanterns in the background: this whole scene was completely swoon worthy. I don’t always like the style of mostly black and white coloring with artistic splashes of color, and I wasn’t sure about its use here at first, but I think this is my favorite I’ve ever seen it. My ONLY qualm: particularly during fight scenes, which tend to be darker in coloring and have a lot of movement going on, the darkness of the coloring made it much more difficult to tell what was happening that I would have liked (ie. Who just kicked that person in the gut? Who did the gut kicking? Who just went flying backwards? Did someone just leave the scene? Did that guy get knocked out, or is he still up?) It is hard to confidently assert this qualm, though, as I think it may have been a consequence of the device I was reading on. All in all, I LOVED this book. I’ve already purchased the hardcover of the regular book version of this because of how much I enjoyed it. I wholeheartedly expect to purchase a physical copy of the graphic novel when it releases. I will absolutely be recommending this to friends.

Everything from the clever dialogue, brilliant plot, and the breathtaking artwork was such an honor to read. Batman and Gotham City is my favorite comic series and cat woman is seriously one of my favorite female villains and having Selena play a more dominant role seriously had me smiling wider than the Joker. I know our young library community will love this book just as much or if not more than I will . We will consider adding this title to our Graphic Novel collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

    I found this generally well done in terms of a graphic novel of the book, but there were a lot of gaps that required you to have read the book which I find a bit disappointing in any graphic novel re-imagining. The artwork was also a bit disappointing.

    Thank you to Netgalley and DC for an arc of the Catwoman: Soulstealer graphic novel! I read the novel version of this story two years ago and really enjoyed it (no surprise--I love anything Sarah J.

I honestly forgot how much I love this story--I love how Selina is willing to do anything to protect her sister, and how that motivation drives her through the entire book, I love the dual perspective with Luke and the relationship that builds between them, and I love the allies Selina makes and seeing their characterization. The graphic novel did a fantastic job of bringing this story to life. It kept all of the important storytelling elements and showcased them in a new way. Highly recommend checking this out when the book is released, whether you've read the original Soulstealer book or not!
