DC just revealed the trailer for Lauren Myracle and Isaac Goodhart’s Under The Moon: A Catwoman Tale, the latest YA graphic novel to be published under the DC Ink imprint. The book is available for pre-order and will be available on May 7th.
When 15-year-old Selina Kyle, the girl who will grow up to be Catwoman, becomes homeless, she must confront questions of who she is and who she will become.
Selina rejects human cruelty, but sometimes it seems as though brute force is the only way to win. And if Selina is going to survive on the streets, she’ll have to learn to be tough. Can she find her humanity and reconcile toughness with her desire for community…and love?
From Lauren Myracle, the New York Times bestselling author of books like ttfn and ttyl, comes a new graphic novel that tells the story of a teenage Catwoman as she struggles to find her own identity while living on the streets of Gotham City.
Quote from Lauren Myracle:
“I have not had this much fun working on a project in ages. Isaac is phenomenal. Seeing him bring fifteen-year-old Selina Kyle to life was mind-blowing. She’s such a vulnerable lost soul; her story is equal parts coming-of-age angst and bad guy ass-kicking. And I got to write a for-real villain, with hollow eyes and creepy teeth and everything. Living the dream!”
Quote from Isaac Goodhart:
“Working on this project was better than I imagined a career in comics could be! My introduction to Gotham City was watching Batman: The Animated Series as a kid. I’m thrilled to think that Under the Moon might be the first story for a new generation of Catwoman readers! Working with Lauren was one of the most fulfilling creative experiences of my life. Hopefully this isn’t the last you’ll see from us! The opportunity to add to Gotham and DC lore was (and still is) mind-boggling! Expect a lot of Easter eggs and references to Catwoman history hidden in my panels.”
