She is the world's greatest cat burglar, and an adversary/lover to Batman. But she's had enough of Gotham City and needs a break from the Dark Knight. What better escape than a European vacation? But it's not all fun and games, as there's business to take care of...

When in Rome has to be one of the most interesting and downright enjoyable Catwoman tales ever to be committed to the graphic novel form. Selina Kyle is on the trail of something much more important than any of the usual petty crimes she's being undertaking in Gotham. She is about to embark on a mission of grand larceny in Rome. Along the way she manages to squeeze a little self-discovery into the mix. But, the last person she expects to be her travelling companion and partner in crime is the Riddler.

This collection goes off on bizarre slants every now and then, but there is a good reasons for all the little diversions... as soon becomes apparent. Why does Kyle keep having weird dreams and doing things totally out of character - like throwing herself at the Riddler?

Catwoman also starts to unearth something about her past - and slowly stars to unravel who her parents were. But will the truth be too much for her?

This collection collects together the Eisner Award winning 6-part miniseries under one cover. The repro job is pretty impressive. But then it's nothing less than this collection deserves.
