For non comic book aficionado's Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale are probably best known for their involvement in TV's Heroes but in the comic book world they have conjured up some excellent fare for both Marvel's flagship characters Spider-Man, Daredevil and The Hulk and DC's Superman and best of all Batman. Their excellence as a team is perfectly showcased in Batman: The Long Halloween and Batman: Dark Victory; the first being my all time favourite Batman tale. Sandwiched between these stories is a mini adventure with Catwoman travelling to Italy that is full of equal parts lightness and dark with a sprinkling of Roman Holiday and a touch of To Catch a Thief. When in Rome is a sparkling concoction and showcases Loeb and Sale's talent superbly. The dialogue is witty, the art beautiful, the story full of intrigue and adventure and the essence of Selina Kyle as Super villain and Femme fatale is captured superbly. This is Catwoman in Europe playing the big con and getting away with it.
