The Rundown: Selina and her daughter clear the air as the Catwoman prepares for the next chapter of her life.
In the past, Selina spends the holidays at the manor with Bruce and Alfred. Something she never imagined would happen to her given her past and the evolution of their relationship continues to be revealed throughout the story to the point where they finally decide to make it official with the help of some very familiar witnesses.
In the future, Selina spends a tense Christmas dinner with her daughter where they exchange jibes rather than gifts and Selina reveals that she is leaving Gotham. After revealing the surprise way that she will be able to leave, she meets up with another familiar face and the two discuss the plan that finally brings them together in the end.
The Story: King brings this story to a satisfying and entertaining conclusion. I love the focus on the characters in this final chapter and how that focuses creates an engaging experience for the reader. The story takes some interesting twists throughout and I love both the things that get resolved in the story as well as the moments that are open. Everything works on a level that kept me interested and riveted throughout.
The Art: Clay Mann delivers some stunning art on every page of the issue. The art is brilliantly detailed and visually stunning. I love the style and want to see more.
