Overall: The Insider(Bruce Wayne for those of you coming to the party late)has tasked Catwoman with keeping an eye on Vicki “The Pest” Vale. It seems Vicki's quest to link Batman and Bruce Wayne has taken her to some exclusive villains club, where a mystery informant told her to meet with him. While Vale is awaiting her informant, Harley Quinn arrives on the scene and starts a riot, which causes Vale to bail(hey, that rhymed!). Catwoman follows Vicki back to her apartment, where Vicki's mystery informant calls her, setting up a meeting at a diner not far from her place. Vicki takes off and Catwoman breaks in, discovering Vicki's wall o' Batman, as well as another wall containing the identities of several super-villains. Catwoman leaves and hangs out on a rooftop waiting for the Insider to arrive. He does, and CW gives all of the details of what she saw in Vicki's apartment. The Insider and CW speak for a while, and over the course of the conversation, Catwoman begins to realize just who the Insider was. Instead of telling Catwoman who he was though, Bruce disappears, leaving Catwoman pondering what just happened.
Like the other Road Home comics, this one was really good. It was definitely on par with the Road Home books that came out last week. The story was similar to the other Road Home books, with Vicki Vale running around and Bruce secretly testing a member of the Bat-family, leaving them confused by the end of the tale. After Catwoman saw the wall of criminals in Vicki's apartment, she thought to herself that Vicki was making a potentially fatal mistake sticking her nose into Gotham's underworld. I really hope Catwoman's words turn out to be prophetic, because I'm so tired of Vicki's annoying quest to connect Bruce and Batman. I just don't see where the Vicki Vale story can possibly go... Besides that, I will admit to being a tad disappointed that Bruce didn't reveal himself to Selina, so the two could share some sappy movie-style kiss. While Bruce pushing the object of his desire away was well within his character, I wouldn't have minded seeing the two of them get together, but I guess that was not to be... Just yet.
Score: 8 out of 10.Jeez, just kiss her already!
