She stayed there for 6 months, but what happened there wasn’t full discussed during the storylines focused on The Batman. Although Catwoman: When in Rome was a style over substance book, Selina Kyle's claw-sharp dialogue and first-person narration - courtesy of Loeb - helped to move things along when the plot (Kyle, "Where'd you get that tie?" - - Selina Kyle "Why do you want to know?" - gangster Christopher 'The Blond' Castillo "I just want to tell my friends never to shop there.

Catwoman: When In Rome is sort of a side chapter that takes place during Batman: Dark Victory. It follows Catwoman in her quest to confirm whether The Roman is her father or not. The book is by my favourite writing team Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale and it’s set within my favourite universe. However, this is a relatively short book that may or may not need it’s place within canon.

I really like the creative team of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sales. Jeph crafted a compelling story of Selina Kyle traveling to Rome to find the roots of her true parentage. I really enjoyed Tim Sales use of shadows and darkness to heighten the suspense factor. Although this can be read as a stand alone story, it is actually part of the greater narrative including the Long Halloween and Dark Victory stories. With the recent announcement of the Jeph Loeb and Tim Sales Batman omnibus which includes Haunted Knight, Long Halloween, Dark Victory and Catwoman: When in Rome, I recommend to wait and buy the omnibus instead of this trade paper back.
Mr.Champions
I don't normally write reviews, but this book is fantastic! It takes place between the events covered in A Long Halloween and Dark Victory. All three should really be read in order since When In Rome does a great job telling Catwoman's backstory and her relationship with Carmine "The Roman" Falcone. The action sequences with various (familiar and unexpected) villains and Catwoman's character development are drawn and written with the precision and style that Loeb and Sale are continuously praised for. Definitely pick this one up if you enjoyed their other work!

Catwoman goes to Rome seeking answers to her past. This comic takes place in between Batman: The Long Halloween & Batman: Dark Victory, so I recommend reading those first. This deepens Selina Kyle's character and fills in her motivations for actions that Catwoman does in the other comics. Jeph Loeb made another great comic and Tim Sale's art nicely compliments his style. All together a great trilogy of books as a complete mafia arc. I would give Batman: Haunted Knight & especially the brilliant Batman: Hush books a try as well.

This book takes place during the Dark Victory story arc. It's told from Catwoman's point of view and shows how she views Batman. The story involves her going to Rome to find evidence to confirm if she is Carmine Falcone's daughter and ends up getting framed for murder. A fun read and another great piece by Loeb. Only problem was that it was too short and quick.

One of my favorite Catwoman's stories of all time. Taking a break from Gotham City mayhem and been heartbroken by Batman and Bruce Wayne altogether(more than once). It time for this kitty to show us comic readers about what she's really made of or find her true family heritage. I won't even dare to the tell about the plot, but Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale did an excellent jobs, especially on the fight scene(s) with Wonder Woman's own villainess, Cheetah, the Scarecrow and the(annoying) Riddler. This in between mini-series is perfect to complete the saga with the Long Halloween, Dark Victory, and of course the Haunted Knight.

Loeb and Sale simply did it again. Their take on Selina may be my favorite. Never has she been portrayed more feminine and sultry, and still kicks but when it's called for. A great read preliminary sketches in the back and throughout. Five stars no question.

Story and art are both firmly average. It is hard to believe this is the team that created the very good Batman: Dark Victory and other heralded Batworks.

It is hard to believe Sale is the artist, Catwoman in no way resembles the sleek, sexy version portrayed in The Long Halloween and Dark Victory. Though cheesecake and semi-nudes are thrown in galore she just doesn't look the sophisticated seductress she's portrayed as in other Loeb/Sale works.

Plotwise it is a mishmash, Cheetah showing up, Mr. Freeze's gun, all allegedly brought over to Italy by The Riddler. They seem to serve merely to cause fight scenes, not develop any plot. Catwoman actually spends very little time pursuing the agenda that brought her to Italy, and there is no real resolution to it. Which normally I wouldn't mind, but after the meandering set pieces instead of a tightly woven plot I would have liked some payoff. The brevity of the work is also disappointing after having experienced the much longer works they have created.

Well nobody hits a home-run every time at bat. Not even Loeb and Sale.
Well, to tell the truth, I was pretty disappointed in this book... The Loeb/Sale creative team has done so many super-cool books recently that I was pretty jazzed when I heard they were going to do a Catwoman story... Sadly, this fell short of what I was expecting, particularly in terms of the script, which seemed choppy and even slapdash. All of the characters -- Selina included, and the Riddler in particular -- were paper-thin and overly reactive; the plot was clunky and didn't seem to fit in with Ed Brubaker's fantastic work in the regular "Catwoman" title, and the big, scary Mafia-oriented plot twist was tedious, a shameless retread of the origin of Huntress, a character of decidely less interest than our beloved Catwoman. That being said, Tim Sale did have some nice moments here, crafting a sexy, earthy new look for our favorite long-tailed, leather-clad super-burglar... I still enjoyed this book, although I can't help but feel that Loeb and Sale were both kinda phoning it in...

3.5 stars, if that were possible.
