Catwoman #1 from Joelle Jones Launches in July

I'm so used to DC just reading solicitations at conventions 99% of the time, I barely pay attention anymore... yet here we are, Joelle Jones and colorist Laura Allred (Lady Killer reunion) will be launching Catwoman #1 in July, just announced at C2E2.

The first story apparently has Selina dealing with a copycat, committing crimes as Catwoman. Get it... copy cat... Catwoman?

I'm excited. Jones has become one of my favorite Catwoman artists of all time within a couple of months. It stings to lose her off the main Batman title, but a Catwoman book with a lot of potential to be really good makes up for it. Also, it was announced that Lee Weeks would be illustrating Batman #51-53, so that's a plus too.

UPDATE: Solicit and cover have been added thanks to the story at Paste Magazine.

Catwoman #1 
Writer/Artist: Joëlle Jones
Colorist: Laura Allred
Variant Cover Artist: Stanley “Artgerm” Lau
The wedding night’s barely over, but Catwoman’s back on the streets, this time to expose a copycat who’s pulling heists around Gotham City. As Selina cracks the whip on her former criminal cohorts, she’s attracting unwanted attention from one of Gotham’s most dangerous groups. The mob? Nope. Try the GCPD. And as if the Bat-Bride didn’t have enough problems, don’t miss the debut of an all-new villain determined to make trouble for all nine of Selina’s lives. Don’t miss the start of an all-new monthly series written and illustrated by Eisner Award-nominee Joëlle Jones

  1. I kind of wanted Tom King to write a Catwoman book and have Jones do the art. But this is good too.
