Catwoman: Selina’s Big Score, by Darwyn Cooke with Matt Hollingsworth (DC Comics, 2002)

Desperate to earn, Selina Kyle takes on a risky big heist opportunity. Pacy graphic novel in Cooke’s typically confident noir-inflected style, operating also as a precursor to his Richard Stark/Parker adaptations. Explosive and with an emotional heart, this is lots of fun.
