Under the Moon by Lauren Myracle & Isaac Goodheart

Under The Moon: A Catwoman Tale - Lauren Myracle, Isaac Goodhart

I have no idea what continuity this is in, but it was a good story. That it was another iteration of Catwoman is just gravy. There are some problematic elements - namely the language - but it shouldn't get in the way.


Selina Kyle is 14 and is driven to leave behind a hostile home environment. She can't bear to go to Gotham High anymore and leaves everything behind. Cutting is an element to the story, too. Be warned. On the street she's befriended by other kids getting by on their own terms, but it may mean hurting the one person she didn't want to lose.


This is about Selina getting the courage to stand up for herself, but its primarily about Selina's relationship with a young, mute homeless girl. Its a nice story, about surviving abuse and remaining a good person, but I don't have too much to say about it. I'm not sure where this fits in to the larger DC universe. Is there a series of young adult graphic novels coming out focusing on more real-life issues?
