    Justin Gray has done a fantastic job at reanimating such a favorite character, breathing new life into a story that has long needed a jolt. This retro-reimagining is exactly what we as long-time fans have needed, and a great window into the past for newcomers. Ron Randall was the perfect choice for the project, delivering the perfect homage to 90s Catwoman while also making her entirely his own. It's a meeting of past and present that is flawlessly executed and I will sing these men the highest of praises for their fantastic work. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Apr 21, 2015

    The Pre-Zero Hour Catwoman was at her most conflicted between doing good and being bad, and this issue shows us both sides of Selena. Read Full Review

    However, the story is clearly drawn and each of the segments are fun in themselves so it is an enjoyable enough read. Also, bonus points for Snake Plisskin references. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Apr 15, 2015

    Catwoman's Convergence tale is kind of a weird read. On the one hand, it definitely appeals to those who grew up reading comics in the 90's, the familiar purple jumpsuit and ridiculous bullwhip at once familiar and fun. On the other, it's tough to make out what kind of Catwoman Justin Gray wants us to see. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 16, 2015

    Justin Gray gives readers a detailed glimpse of life under the dome and how Catwoman fits into it.  It's a nice little story, but the scope feels off and in the end, it just feels unnecessary.  I'll be back next month, but my expectations for this story have gone way down. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Apr 16, 2015

    "Convergence" as a whole is a deep exercise in brand loyalty; with the limited page space, readers are expected to come in with background knowledge of each character, lest he or she be confused by the depicted era of that character. "Convergence: Catwoman" #1 puts its best paw forward but is a victim of having to do too many things at once. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jeremy Eloi Apr 18, 2015

    In conclusion, while this is an ok issue there are a bunch of problems with it. The tell, not show methodology in Convergence: Catwoman #1 really hurts the story and what drives the characters. Bruno Mannheim's motivation is told in a couple of lines and while he has one badass moment, he is only in the issue for a few sequences and its hard to even remember who he is. Convergence: Catwoman #1 can be summed up as a massive set up issue and its something that is unfortunate in this instance. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Apr 17, 2015

    Overall: This book is poorly executed, stretches belief more than it should, and offers nothing worthwhile to the story at hand. It's not terrible, but unless you're one of those people that things are so bad that they're good, I'd advise you skip this issue. Read Full Review

    Selina’s personality makes this a Convergent tie-in little snappier, a little more upbeat than what I read last week (Harley, Batgirl). It was fun to see her in purple again. And while writer Justin Gray makes the mistake of having Kyle repeat exposition that was just spouted by the villain. Other than that, and an abrupt last page, this was very entertaining.

    A fun read and Selina Kyle actually doesn't change too much from version to version. In fact other than the costume, her personality is more or less the same. The thing about Convergence is that it's turning into a random klusterphuck, at the end of this issue Kingdom Come Batman shows up out of nowhere and I don't even recall Telos matching her up with this version of Batman. While the concept was initially intriguing, Convergence is driving me up a wall. I'm just glad that it ends in a month because we're two weeks in and I literally want to Hulk-smash a gingerbread house every time we run into Telos's idiotic dome chant. He shoulda just said may the odds ever be in your favor and left it at that.
