From Emmy and Eisner Award-winning Paul Dini (DETECTIVE COMICS, Batman: The Animated Series) comes GOTHAM CITY SIRENS BOOK ONE!
Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn—they’re beautiful, they’re deadly, and for the first time in their lives, all three are trying to fly on the straight and narrow. Tired of playing by other people's rules, regardless of which side of the law they're on, these tough ladies have a new agenda that's all their own, and they'll use any means necessary to pursue it.
Only, sometimes, friends can be more trouble than they're worth. Particularly when they're unaccustomed to things like loyalty… or sanity.
With the Bat away, these sirens will play, and no one— not Hush, the Riddler, or even the Joker—knows what to expect from the bad girls of Gotham City. But life off the lam is no bed of roses. Especially when maniacs are killing innocents and making it look like the Sirens are the culprits, when Ivy’s new civilian identity proves murderously difficult to maintain, and when Catwoman’s sister comes to town to ride of the demon she believes possesses her… and rid her of her life in the process!
Featuring the gorgeous artwork of Guillem March (BATMAN), Andres Guinaldo (NIGHTWING), and more, Batman’s hottest rogues tread a new path by the along with writers Paul Dini, Tony Bedard (SUPERGIRL), Scott Lodbell (TEEN TITANS), and Marc Andreyko (BATWOMAN) in GOTHAM CITY SIRENS BOOK ONE. Collects issues #1-13.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Take 3 of Batman's most cunning female villains, mix in a level of “reform”, and put them all in the same townhouse. Each – Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn, have their own motivations for maintaining their current status in life, and each has her own interpretation of what “living on the other side of the law” means (as well as which side IS “the other side”). Mix in a reformed – maybe – E. Nigma better known as The Riddler, acting in the role of private detective; after all, in its most basic form, what does a private detective do but solve puzzles? AND, some other villains that may not be happy with the life choices of the characters already mentioned here, and have rather violent ways of expressing their displeasure … Gotham City Sirens was a fun read without descending into camp. All characters had their light moments, and all characters had their serious times. All lead characters showed they could live in and follow the rules of modern society, but all also showed their willingness to bend those rules when they deemed it appropriate or necessary or simply expedient. AND, while this collection of reprinted comic books left a hanging subplot or two, it basically concluded with an actual conclusion – I HATE buying a collection that suddenly stops at the last page with expectations that I'll need to purchase the next in order to find out what happens! That might be OK with a comic magazine, but I expect more from a collection. This one delivered. RATING: 4 1/2 stars, rounded up to 5 stars when 1/2 stars are not accepted.
