    Lmao exaggeration much?
    tbgo isn't exaggerating. Despite the superb writing & storytelling, the sales of that volume quickly plummeted only a few issues into the series. Conversely, the previous volume - despite being criticized for being overly sexualized - maintained its strength in sales for several years.

    Uh, when you say "original Golden Age one", you do realize she didn't have a costume originally, then she went through some variations that maybe would have fit on The Masked Singer before settling on the purple-with-green-cape one?

    Heh! Indeed, I was thinking of the purple dress with green cape. Seriously unsuitable for any thief, but it had style enough to make up for it.

    Anyone know why the steep drop in Catwoman comic books sales. For December Catwoman #6 was in 28th place but for January Catwoman #7 is down to 52nd place. Why are people losing interest in the book?

    Is it definitely "people losing interest in this book"?

    Issue #6 was the end of an arc, wasn't it? People may not have wanted to continue buying it after that arc, or maybe they'll switch and trade-wait future arcs, or maybe they'll switch to digital vs. paper, or maybe comic book shops decided they don't want to or can't afford to order as many copies as they had been getting (especially if this series doesn't look like it will tie into King's Batman again any time soon).

    I also think Jones no longer drawing the issues might be a big turn off too, especially since one of the major appeals from the beginning was that she was doing both. She might not be able to handle writing & drawing a monthly book consistently, or has another project planned (DC1000 and one of the Knightmares I believe are the only other ones we know about so far)

    Don't forget the Swamp Thing stuff she's drawing for the Walmart book.

    Whatever the case, it's clear that a combination of factors - writing, art shift, tie-ins (or lack thereof) is sadly losing readers.

    Ah that's right, knew I was forgetting something. So that could easily be the case.

    I know for me personally, I've got issues 2-6 saved on my pull list, but I still haven't decided if I want to commit to the whole series yet, just because I don't know how long it's planning to go till, especially if it is gonna be 13-24 issues of just spinning its wheels.

    You can see Selina's civilian identity from the new DC Super Hero Girls series on the middle of the bottom row on the left side of this image:
