In this new volume collecting CATWOMAN #10-24 and CATWOMAN SECRET FILES #1, Ed Brubaker continues his noir look at Selina Kyle and the growing criminal element in Gotham City, along with new artist Cameron Stewart.
The Black Mask, long time foil of Batman, has his sight set on Gotham City's East End to house his drug trafficing empire. When Selina Kyle discovers the Black Mask's intentions, she begins to wage a vigilante war against his operation in Gotham. Selina continues to frustrate the Black Mask at every turn and when Selina uses funds stolen from Black Mask henchmen to fund a youth center, the Black Mask is enraged and vows to make Selina pay an awful price. There is a reason superheroes have a secret identity and when that identity is known, no one in their family as safe, a hard lesson Selina is forced to learn.
