It was okay.
This time, you get 3 stories, the Annual included, instead of a single arc. The book itself is generously thick, so there's plenty to read in the mean time.
In regards to the art, I actually praise the style and skill of the artists. They surely made an incredibly good job at portraying amazing scenes of acrobatics from our favourite feline fatale. I don't think there's a single thing I can't complain about it. The character design is nice, and the emotions expressed by the characters are very convincing for the story being told.
However, where I feel this number loses strenght is in the stories. First, we got the "conclusion" to the first volume arc; it felt a bit incomplete. The great built up given to us by Vol. 1 is not really closed. And it almost feels like we're starting a brand new arc, with far higher stakes-not much is explained, and maybe you'll be forced to go through the Batman current numbers to get to understand it.
What I feel about Joelle's first story is that she's a super competent, and talented writer. She can convince you about what the characters personalities, by making them multidimensional. I think it's actually one of her strongest points. Also, the environment she created, which looks like a mix between southern Texas, and Los Angeles felt interesting. It's filled with its own underworld, upperworld, and many other aspects common of the Catwoman universe.
However, I felt like there are things which stretches my personal threshold of disbelief. Mainly, the plot armor. We understand that superheroes, villians, and anti-heroes are imbued with it, and it will justify why they walk away from life threatening situations unscathed. However, Joelle presents to us a couple of details which I believe should have been better addressed during edition. In a form of respect, I shall not spoil it to you. I leave it for yourself to judge whether the things I consider overly exagerated for a super-hero/fantasy story.
The second story is rather slow, and not really fulfilling. Maybe because we see a lot of things most picky readers won't understand at all. But that's an Annual for you.
The third story is actually entertaining. It was written by Ram V, and it's actually a short, simple story covered from beginning to end in this book. You'll find a big reference if you're an avid movie goer. And the story simply take us back to the old times of Catwoman engaging in sleaky adventures resolved with wit, and ingenuity.

Reviewed in the United States on October 8, 2019
As mentioned by another reviewer the volume is not one story as was the first volume. Maybe would have read better as single issues. Artwork is ok but a real let down from v1. Jones's art is so well suited to Catwoman, v1 was a real treat. This one, while the art is fine, it is nothing special. Seeing Jones's cover art in between chapters is like rubbing in the insult. I realize writing and drawing a monthly book can be tough but I really wish Jones continued double duty.
