Selina and Holly are in desperate need of an escape from Gotham City. So the pair drive off on a classic road trip. But the two women are in for way more than they bargained for as they face some mysterious (and dangerous) Egyptian thieves who seem to keep crossing their paths...

Wild Ride follows on from the events that unfolded in Relentless. Selina takes Holly off on a mini vacation. But she has ulterior motives. Holly is going to be trained by one of the finest fighters on the planet - Ted Grant, aka the JSA's Wildcat.

Along their travels, the two girls also bump into Batman, Hawkman, Hawkgirl and Captain Cold. But, when they stumble upon a secret Egyptian temple in the middle of a bustling city, they start to uncover the origins of a secret cult that has been around since the pharaohs ruled Egypt. The cult members are sent out on suicide missions - if they don't succeed they make sure that their bodies are instantly vaporised. So, just why are these cult members following Selina around the USA?

This is the DC equivalent of Thelma and Louise (almost). Author, Ed Brubaker, spins an impress yarn that is wonderfully illustrated by Cameron Stewart.

This is a good, solid Catwoman collection that won't disappoint.
