Catwoman looks like it's been cancelled
Which brings me to point to one of the things I think has led to such bad sales for the second volume: the "revelation" they made after Identity Crisis that Catwoman had been influenced by Zatanna's mindwiping to abandon her crooked ways, and didn't make the choice herself. Thanks to that, I'd say Selina was among those protagonists who suffered the worst as a result of the contrived situations IC led to. It turned much of the character development she'd had during the Bronze Age into a farce. Simultaneously, Zatanna was made out to look ridiculous by apologizing for trying to cure crooks of their bad ways. It just stinks in both directions, and no matter how much they try to make it look otherwise, such steps only make it hard to credit any following storylines, if at all.
