Catwoman will be getting her own DC Black Label miniseries from writer and artist Cliff Chiang in Catwoman: Lonely City come the fall. The story will see Catwoman on her own adventure in Gotham City years after the deaths of Batman, The Joker, Nightwing and Commissioner Gordon. Check out the cover, the variant cover by artist Jock and some of Chiang’s designs below…
The official synopsis for Catwoman: Lonely City reads:
Ten years ago, the massacre known as Fools’ Night claimed the lives of Batman, The Joker, Nightwing, and Commissioner Gordon…and sent Selina Kyle, the Catwoman, to prison. A decade later, Gotham has grown up—it’s put away costumed heroism and villainy as childish things. The new Gotham is cleaner, safer…and a lot less free, under the watchful eye of Mayor Harvey Dent and his Batcops. It’s into this new city that Selina Kyle returns, a changed woman…with her mind on that one last big score: the secrets hidden inside the Batcave! She doesn’t need the money—she just needs to know…who is “Orpheus?”
Catwoman: Lonely City marks a return to DC for Chiang. He previously did artwork on his and Brian Azzarello’s run of Wonder Woman as well as work on Green Arrow and Black Canary, Zatanna and Batman Black & White. Chiang will write, draw, colour and letter all four issues of the miniseries.
Each book will be 48-pages and released in the Prestige Plus format that has made up most Black Label series. You can see more of a preview of the series at the DC Comics website.
Catwoman: Lonely City #1 will be released October 19th.
