On Gotham's East End, a man picks up a sex worker, but then kills her when she is upset by his face.

Indexer Notes

First issue of a new ongoing series, following the events of the "Trail of the Catwoman" back up stories in Detective Comics (DC, 1937 series) #759-762 (and, chronologically, the "prequel" story Catwoman: Selina's Big Score (DC, 2002)).

Leslie Thompkins and Holly Robinson are established as supporting characters. Selina operates out of an abandoned tenement house she secretly bought early in her career.

Selina debuts a new costume in this issue, designed by Darwyn Cooke.

First appearance of the seventh Clayface, seen only in shadow and identified only as "Brian".
