    With Batman/Catwoman #10, Tom King's epic story kicks into high gear. This series has been an utterly fascinating exploration of Catwoman and her relationships to Batman and the Joker. But can King produce an satisfying conclusion to his story? If he can stick the landing, Batman/Catwoman will undoubtedly another Tom King classic, alongside Mister Miracle, Rorschach, and Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow. Read Full Review

    Clay Mann delivers some amazing visuals throughout this issue. I love the way each time period takes on a different tone and the details in the characters is amazing. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Lee Feb 11, 2022

    Batman/Catwoman #10 is what I wished the entire series had been like. The time skips aren't a hindrance to the story, but really enrich the characters' journeys. It also feels satisfying that the various threads are finally starting to tie together. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Scott Waldyn Feb 8, 2022

    Batman/Catwoman #10 zeroes in on its focus on Catwoman and her struggle with identity, and in doing so, reminds us of why this series is exceptional. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Feb 8, 2022

    Batman/Catwoman #10 is a gripping, and intense brawl of emotion and physicality as Selina takes on her enemies in a more straightforward manner. Those who are still reading the series should stick around as we enter its final act, but anyone interested in jumping in now is best suited to either hunt down back issues or wait for the trade. If anything, having the entire series to read in one sitting might better serve its slippery narrative. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Feb 9, 2022

    DC Comics' Batman/Catwoman has been slowly getting to its big climax for a while now. Issue #10 might just be it. While the script for this issue feels a little unrefined, it's true to these characters. We'll have to wait and see how much comes of this issue, and how much of the big picture we're still missing.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 8, 2022

    This series largely feels like a mood piece more than anything, and while King is great at those, this series doesn't quite live up to the standard of the densely plotted masterpieces he puts out at DC on a weekly basis. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Feb 9, 2022

    While Batman/Catwoman #10 may not be the strongest in terms of story for this issue, Clay Mann really makes up for it with his eye-popping artwork that really stands out. I just hope for the final issue, we see more of Batman as well as Phantasm. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 8, 2022

    By the end of the issue, King seems to insinuate that Joker is the father of Helena, which seems about right for a book that has been spiraling out of control for so long its finally lost its way. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 8, 2022

    While I love that Clay Mann is back on this book because I love his style, the story itself doesn't bring much beyond some fighting and a revelation behind Joker's motivations that don't make me very excited at all and won't have any lasting effects on his mythos throughout other Bat-books. There's not much here, but at least it looks nice. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Nicole Drum Feb 9, 2022

    The art's okay, but the story itself and its execution leaves a lot to be desired and really should have been reigned in a long time ago given the bloat, the fluff, and the lack of substance overall. Read Full Review

    So. Clay's back. I missed his art.

    As for this. This book. That I've wasted so much time on, but I don't want to stop. Because I want to read it till the end so I don't have to wonder how it ended.

    It's... not bad.

    I know I know, that sounds odd. But it's not honestly that bad. I have problems with it, quite a lot, from just teasing the revelation to having too much talking made by character's whose voices I don't hear. I don't like how King writes Joker. Because it seems off. I can't really grasp what he is doing with the Joker.

    But like I said, it's not bad. The three timelines finally work somehow. It took 9 issues, but I'm finally starting to get what King is doing here.

    So it's no more

    This really just feels like a morality lesson that really doesn’t understand what that is to work in the greats then a fully fleshed out story with a message. The characters do not feels like people but chess pieces to be moved into some space on the board to check mark a box the writer wished to hit.

    Yeah, this series sucks. To give credit where it's due, the three timelines thing finally works for the first time since... issue two. Definitely a storytelling mechanic worth using. As for the rest... Clay Mann is back on art, but you can tell he's still barely keeping up. So, the art isn't amazing, even for the average Clay Mann fan. Which I'm not. The writing is... confident. That's the nicest thing I can say about it. King is assured in what he's writing. He clearly has a story to tell, and he's telling it. I just find it rather unfulfilling to read. I don't like his voice for Catwoman. I definitely don't find any solace in the revelation that Joker is actually sane. Like, no shit, of course he is. And I can't tell if we're supposed to more

    Tom King é bom, mas quando erra ele erra feio.
    Eu não gosto da Selina escrita por ele, e todo essa coisa estranha com o Coringa pode ser resultado de algo que eu prefiro não pensar.

    Like other critics, the 3 is for the art. The story is so bad that it lowers what should be a higher art score.

    The “story” has a whole issue to progress, but the whole of the issipue could be reduced to one page. It spins its wheels and is lost thanks to a confusing multi-timeline format. And King has totally forgotten about Phantasm.

    To be fair, so had I, but remembered her because I recalled the previous covers. This issipue and series is a mess. What is DC thinking. Seriously, how could professionals put this out and charge money? Also, it’s late.

    And I am not wrong.

    only reason why this book isnt rated lower is because the art is still good.

    I've kind of run out of metaphors to say how bad this is. Just stupid ramblings on and on, Catwoman's voice is still just awful, nothing here works. There's the beginning of a revelation here, like that's all that matters, but I just cringe at everything else.

    It’s clear that DC can’t get rid of tom king,(only one who clearly saw anything in him was Dan didiot) so they are clearly keeping him in his own little corner and letting him do what he wants. It’s hilarious, so who cares let him run wild with his egomaniacal self impressed BS

    the only difference between this comic and used toilet paper, is the used toilet paper isn't as shitty.

    When it was first announced, I honestly thought it was going to be a romance series setting up their marriage. You know, like what Rogue and Gambit had in Marvel.
    I thought that would be pretty awesome even if it still has Tom as the writer. Finally a permanent status-quo change for once and we get to see Batman as a husband and all the interesting dynamics with Catwoman within the bat-family. So excited!
    And then it turned into this weird crap. Why is Batman even in these book, and Selina is acting like a bitch and complaining that Helena is not behaving properly??? It feels the writer wanted to focus on Catwoman and her relationship with Batman but for some reason its busy in her relationship with Joker.

    Tom King is just an awful writer and he continues to prove it here. Beautiful artwork by Clay Mann is just wasted on this garbage.
