    A great balance of flashbacks with current events propel this story ahead of the pack. Catwoman is great storytelling that doesn't hold back. If you're sick of slower moving plots in comics this is your cure. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 11, 2016

    Frank Tieri has the bittersweet job of ending the Catwoman series and does it in style.  He doesn't rely on smoke and mirrors or forced emotions like some of the other finales we've been getting, but instead just tells a damn good story that ties perfectly into his overall arc and slips in a little origin while we aren't looking.  Pretty sneaky, sis.  The art was just as fantastic and while I am sad to see Catwoman zoom off into the sunset (actually, into the night), I'm glad that I was along for the ride.

    Although you're left wanting – and expecting – more, this is one of the best New 52 finales I've read so far. I feel it's a shame there's noCatwomantitle when Rebirth kicks off, not only because I love the character, but also because it seems like Tieri is just getting the party started. Read Full Review

    This creative team understands what this series can be, and they pull no punches to cross that line to do so. There are no heroes hero. So if you're looking for simple smash and grabs, you came to the wrong place. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a decent story that is helped immensely by its art. It's interesting enough but not mind-blowing. However, the art and colors are wonderful and entirely worth the read so I recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Jake Swirsky May 15, 2016

    Even acknowledging those flaws, the book is a solid read, with nice visuals and a fun, if somewhat hollow, plot that focuses too little on the characterization of both David and Selina. The book's main strength is its pacing, which zooms along at a brisk, thrilling pace. As the middle chapter of a three part arc, it would've been great. However, for a conclusion it's merely good, as it's unclear what changes Selina has truly gone through. It's unfortunate that the series has to end now as there's a great deal of material to explore, especially how this betrayal impacts Selina's future relationships and Black Mask's power grab.

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald May 12, 2016

    Catwoman ends its run with a decent story from Frank Tieri. If you're a die-hard Selina fan, then you should definitely pick up this story, even if it's just to say, "See you soon." Read Full Review

    There was a stretch where Catwoman was arguably the worst title DC had to offer during the New 52 era. It's nice to see it end on a high note. Between flashbacks and betrayals, this little story kept me entertained and was more inline with Valentine's run than Nocenti's. Obviously there are some dangling plot points that could be picked up in the future but for now Catwoman doesn't leave a bad impression.
