Catwoman: Soulstealer

by Sarah J. Maas

Review by: Sam

I’ve never been a big superhero fan, and when I do dip my toes in the water, it tends to be the Marvel universe. But Sarah J. Maas is one of my favorite authors, and seeing that she was writing one of the DC Icons volumes made me take the leap. Catwoman: Soulstealer takes a different approach to the femme fatale villain of Batman’s universe - Selina Kyle (Catwoman) is barely past 20 and she’s mysteriously arrived in Gotham under the guise of jewel thievery. Batman’s gone for an important mission, leaving behind his friend and colleague “Batwing” to keep watch.

Catwoman: Soulstealer is an interesting take on the superhero genre – focusing more on the humanity and interpersonal relationships between heroes and villains, rather than a one-dimensional gaze at cartoon-y action sequences. Catwoman teams up with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn for some girl-power heist shenanigans, while learning more about each other’s troubled pasts and what drives them towards villainy. Selina starts to fall in love with Gotham’s steady and respectable Luke Fox, both unaware that their alter-egos have a much different relationship. It’s a quick read, and it balances comedy, drama, romance and adventure quite well. If you’re looking for a light read, I highly recommend Catwoman: Soulstealer.
