Catwoman #39 Preview Brings Faces New and Old Crashing into Selina Kyle’s Life

We have a preview of Catwoman #39, which sees Selina Kyle return to Gotham and the debut of a new creative team in Tini Howard and Nico Leon.

Gotham City isn’t a place you can leave forever, eventually everything and everyone returns. Catwoman returns to Gotham City to do what she does best, stealing from the wicked crime lords and villains that rule over the city. Selina is back with a brand new creative team in a Gotham City still recovering from it’s Fear State.

New ongoing writer Tini Howard (Excalibur) and new ongoing artist Nico Leon (Ms Marvel) bring Catwoman back to old haunts, making them brand new as Selina goes deep undercover to steal the most valuable currency of all… secrets. Catwoman is hiding in plain sight among the mistresses and beautiful clubs of Gotham City’s underground, sneaking her way past a new crew of villains—and some familiar faces:

Eiko Hasigawa is back, and Selina finds herself once again at odds with an ex and the powerful Hasigawa crime family—as well as their allies in Gotham City’s underworld.

Nico Leon’s bringing a new, stylish look to the Hasigawa crime family as Eiko steps up to lead—and as Selina tries to infiltrate their operation.

Selina also crosses paths with a new player in Gotham’s scene: Valmont, a talented, charming master thief, who’s very interested in Catwoman’s talent for thievery… and in Selina herself.

This message is for Tini and Nico, why are all villains so attractive?

Writer Tini Howard is giving Selina a taste of her own medicine as she flirts and fights with this new potential adversary, potential ally—because nothing can be simple for Selina.

And of course, if Selina is going to be going head to head with the crime families of Gotham, there’s no way for her to avoid the Black Mask:

It’s an explosive start to a new chapter in Catwoman’s story, with old friends and new faces to welcome Selina back to Gotham City.
