Birds Of Prey: Catwoman/Oracle

(Art by David Ross and Jimmy Palmiotti)

A follow-up to 'Birds of Prey: Batgirl/Catwoman', this book sees Selina Kyle and Barbara Gordon once more having to form an uneasy alliance in order to stop a vicious killer intent on usurping the mantle of Catwoman.

What I particularly liked about this book was the way it shows how both of the title characters have changed in the time since their previous team-up.  Catwoman has moved further down the road of vigilante, keeping her edge but losing some of her selfishness.  Naturally, Barbara's journey has been somewhat more dramatic, having gone from naieve young crimefighter to logistical mastermind via a crippling bullet courtesy of the Joker.

Despite that element, however, this book is just far too short to really develop any depth, being only about the length of a single comic book issue.
