DC Comics has unveiled a new trailer for Lauren Myracle and Isaac Goodhart's upcoming young adult graphic novel Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale, which will be published under the DC Ink imprint.
The trailer follows none other than Selina Kyle herself, highlighting the struggles that lead her on the path to becoming Catwoman, from an abusive household to a disinterest in high school and the meeting of new friends. The trailer is bookended with Selina declaring that, "It's not the size of the cat in the fight that matters, it's the size of the fight in the cat" and that she's "only just begun."
Per the official synopsis of Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale:
When 15-year-old Selina Kyle, the girl who will grow up to be Catwoman, becomes homeless, she must confront questions of who she is and who she will become.
Selina rejects human cruelty, but sometimes it seems as though brute force is the only way to win. And if Selina is going to survive on the streets, she’ll have to learn to be tough. Can she find her humanity and reconcile toughness with her desire for community... and love?
From Lauren Myracle, the New York Times bestselling author of books like ttfn and ttyl, comes a new graphic novel that tells the story of a teenage Catwoman as she struggles to find her own identity while living on the streets of Gotham City.
"I have not had this much fun working on a project in ages," said Myracle. "Isaac is phenomenal. Seeing him bring 15-year-old Selina Kyle to life was mind-blowing. She's such a vulnerable lost soul; her story is equal parts coming-of-age angst and bad guy ass-kicking. And I got to write a for-real villain, with hollow eyes and creepy teeth and everything. Living the dream!"
Written by Lauren Myracle and illustrated by Isaac Goodhart, Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale will be be released wherever books are sold on May 7 and is currently available for pre-order. An excerpt from the book will also be available during this year's Free Comic Book Day on May 4.
