    The main story screams Ocean's 11 in more ways than one and the two backups are fantastic too. This is can't miss superhero comics! Read Full Review

    Catwoman #50 brought about a conclusion to 'Run Like Hell' as another story from this volume which you would be crazy to miss out on. Selina is not the woman to mess with and from the first flip of the page to the last this statement is made to all who thought she is easy pickings to cross. The story at the end of this issue as well is worth the read. Not always that we will get to see some of Selina before she became Catwoman. Even for a short, probably better than what you're getting out of the TV series Gotham. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 11, 2016

    If you are a fan of Catwoman, then you need to read this issue!  Frank Tieri wraps ups his “Run Like Hell” story in a way that fits his main character...tough as nails and smart as a whip.  While it's such a shame that the DCU will have a lot less Catwoman once Rebirth hits, Tieri and Inaki Miranda are sending her out in style.

    The conclusion to this story is satisfying. I like the twist and everything wraps up in a believable way. It's not mind blowing or action packed but it is cool and immensely helped by the art. The backup stories take it down a bit for me. The Justice League one is cute but the I think the first one is incredibly tedious. Overall, this is a good issue and I recommend picking it up.

    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph Mar 9, 2016

    Supplemental material comes in the form of two backup stories that I actually liked more than the main one. The first delves into the history of Black Mask's mask – a character that Catwoman certainly has her fair share of history with – and splendidly weaves it into Gotham's fabric, while also involving some of the city's most prominent families. The second sees Catwoman break into the Justice League Watchtower and is not without a bit of humor. I can say with honesty that every tale in this book sums up Selina Kyle well in its own way, so I do tip my hat to Tieri. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Mar 10, 2016

    I have mixed feelings about this issue. While the conclusion of the Frost Diamond story is fairly satisfying the weird narration at the end put me off a bit. I am not sure of the purpose of the other two stories, neither really packed a punch and seemed pointless. They were interesting in a way but seemed like filler, just the seed of other stories that could have been fleshed out into something more. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Mar 11, 2016

    This story fell short of what it could have been, and should have been. I don't blame Tieri on this though. I feel as though he went in with a plan for a six or seven issue arc (maybe even more), put things into motion, then got derailed with Rebirth. It's a shame too. If the first two issues of Tieri's arc are a representation of what I assume he had planned, then readers are really missing out! This issue isn't bad, it's just disappointing. Thankfully, we get two solid short stories that end this chapter on a positive note. Read Full Review

    The fact that this title has made it to issue #50 is a miracle especially since it was one of the weakest titles of the New 52 during Ann Nocenti's run. This was a fun little issue but the two backup stories were pointless. I wish they didn't try to stretch this issue #50 to 48 pages. The primary story was fine with some cool cameos that don't entirely seemed forced. But the mask and JL stories were head-scratchingly stupid.

    as much as i absolutely LOVE Selina Kyle as a character, i can't say just how happy i am to see this series finally die off!!!! truthfully it'd have been much better if they just limited this title to the initial 6 issues it opened with in 2011 and then killed it right after! while this arc wasn't exactly 'Ann Nocenti' bad, it was pretty close! .... and a few things kept pulling me out of the story .... Mr Blond??? .... Scagnetti??? .... i'm a Quentin Tarantino fan as much as the next guy, but these references were WAY TOO distracting! .... it made it feel more like an amateur fan-fiction. ......... ....also, i totally agree with Supes' soups!!! ..... "the mask and JL stories were head-scratchingly stupid." ......HAHAHAHA!!!! thank you Supes' soups!!! i couldn't have said it better myself!!! :D
