    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Sep 27, 2014

    And Pat Oliffe's pencils, Tom Nguyen and Walden Wong's inks, and Sonia Oback's colours really make this issue come alive. Lots of great action here between Selina's lieutenants, though they are mostly B- and even C-listers, but the artists capture them really well. Selina is the star of course however, and she gets the most attention, which is just as well with me. There were a few moments where the art was inconsistent, such as with Selina's face or her chest area, but overall, pretty solid. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Sep 25, 2014

    Sholly Fisch should be praised for not only bringing back the Selina we know and love, but for literally taking advantage of every opportunity he has in this book! He surrounds Selina with interesting and familiar characters, touches on other Futures End one-shot events, creates a believable world for Selina five years from now, and fills the issue with whit and strong writing. There are even some nice nods to Catwoman books from the past. If you're a fan of Catwoman, then you NEED to pick up this book! Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Kierra Prince Sep 25, 2014

    The art in here is beautiful and fits the story thematically as well. The artists have used low lighting throughout the comic to really nail the feel of this seedy criminal underground. There's also a ton of attention given to facial expressions and close-ups and it helps make the environment tense as alliances get called out and tempers flare up. The artists have also given Selina Kyle a nice business suit with a deep v-neck jacket that instantly reminds us of the unzipped Catwoman suit we've had over the last few appearances of Catwoman in various media. It's a nice touch that also serves to show us that Selina Kyle may be leading Gotham's most profound group of criminals but she isn't letting people forget who she is/was. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Sep 25, 2014

    Sholly Fisch has finally given us the Selina Kyle we've been missing for too many issues: smart, confident, in control. Pat Olliffe, Tom Nguyen, Walden Wong, and Sonia Oback show off some of their best work here: fine-tuned details such as Penguin's fur-lined coat, the color of Tusk's teeth, and the reflective surface of a boardroom table all pop with style and shading. While I'm excited for Genevieve Valentine's debut next month with issue #35, I wouldn't be opposed to Fisch writing the occasional one-shot. This is an issue that Selina fans will enjoy.

    Comics Bulletin - Christine Manzione Sep 30, 2014

    Catwoman worked so well for me"- in a stark contrast to Harley's fruity color palette, Sonia (Witchblade) Oback's gritty, muted tones lend themselves well to the severity of Selina Kyle's pressing matter of keeping the peace between warring gangs Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Sep 25, 2014

    Six months later, Selina is in France, tanning on the beach, when Nygma shows up, trying to blackmail her for some of the money she stole. However, she knows that he can't give away the answer to a riddle, so he gets nothing. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Jake Baumgart Sep 29, 2014

    What's refreshing is that, in contrast to the other tie-ins, writer Sholly Fisch has predicted a pretty reasonable fate for Catwoman. No venom serum, cybernetic enhancements or general bleakness. It feels like a very natural progression for the character. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 25, 2014

    This issue offers a glimpse of Selina Kyle's new status quo ahead of the imminent revamp of the main Catwoman series. While it's certainly interesting to see Selina trading in her catsuit for business attire and rule the Gotham underworld, the execution leaves a lot to be desired. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 28, 2014

    Nothing really impressed me about this issue.  It just seems to be going through the motions, looking for the exit the whole time.  Sholly Fisch does a better job than Ann Nocenti, but that's really not saying much.  It did have some nice references to other books, but in the end, I suggest you skip this one and get ready for the new start next month.

    A little standard, but fun nevertheless. The direction this series is going in turns out to be a lot more fun than I expected it to be.
