Does anybody know if this series is ending soon. I think I read this somewhere. I really hope not because Will Pfeifer's catwoman is definatly one of the best DC books on the market now.

Yep, I think it ends with #80.

I havent read the book in a long time, but I will say the issues I read after OYL were ok, but to me the book really ended when Brubaker left. I honestly think the Brubaker/Strewart run is one of the best creative team runs on any character this decade.

I hate Paul Gulacy's art, so I fropped it with 25, but I picked it back up again when Zatana showed up jut before OYL & it's been prety good since then. I'm sad to see it go.

Paul Gulacy singlehandely ruined the book for me for awhile but once Pfeifer and woods came on it was fucking brilliant.

I can't help but think how much better it would have been were they not saddled with the whole Catbaby thing.

She got tired of having people try to kill the baby, so Batman helped her fake her and the kids' death, and then put the baby up for adoption.

I thought she was going to get kidnapped by extra-dimensional beings, be rapidly aged, and come back as some sort of "Cat Avatar" or something similar.

Instead they threw her into the "Well let's just pretend this never happened..." machine.

I've found it to be pretty terrible since OYL.

I never understood how they approved the baby idea. She's the one woman Batman's actively chased over the years and to give her a kid by a tertiary character like Slam Bradley's son was pretty dumb imo. Obviously they could never make it last. Catwoman's not a maternal character either. Her style of villainy/heroism doesn't really work if she's a mother. I guess they wanted to make it an Earth 2 thing especially with the kid being named Helena... but come on... this is where they really need to think before throwing in all those silver age references for the hell of it.

I completely agree. It also served no dramatic purpose whatsoever, as everyone KNEW the baby would be disposed of somehow.

Helena Wayne was more Bronze Age, though.

1980 - 1985?

I thought the death of Gwen Stacy was the end point for the silver age, and the beginning of the bronze.

It's been consistently good since Pfeifer jumped on to helm the book in '05. Shame it can't find an audience.

I liked his writing but that Film Freak arc was pretty weak I thought. Kinda hokey villain.
