    Tom King's run on Batman was somewhat divisive, although I loved it. I maintain that the stories that covered the full breadth of Bruce and Selina's story: past, present, and future. King has made the wise choice of delivering another such story in Batman/Catwoman, and it's paid off. I look forward to seeing their romance culminate in matrimony next issue. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Apr 12, 2022

    Clay Mann delivers some beautifully detailed panels on every page of the issue. The style is perfect for the story and every page has something to capture the reader visually from either the character design to the emotion. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Scott Waldyn Apr 12, 2022

    Batman/Catwoman #11 is both a love letter of fun Batman references from past comics and cartoon series, as well as a haunting and mortifying penultimate issue to a maxi-series unafraid to tackle unsettling topics. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 12, 2022

    King and Mann's take on the core couple's relationship has been strong, but this feels like it would have been a stronger series if it had been allowed to be the final arc in King's Bat-run rather than a stand-alone series. It doesn't quite live up to his other maxiseries. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Apr 13, 2022

    Fans of the DC animated universe will enjoy Batman/Catwoman #11, as it contains multiple homages. There is also a great emotional scene between the elderly Selina Kyle and her daughter, Helena. The finale of this issue may be a bit jarring for some readers, but it may not be everything that it appears to be. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Apr 12, 2022

    It's hard to know how much of BATMAN/CATWOMAN #11 is deliberately delving into chaos and confusion, and how much of this effect is accidental. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Apr 12, 2022

    Batman/Catwoman #11 will satisfy readers who simply want to know what the hell has been going on with the series' narrative. While the answers here make sense, it's hard to shake the feeling that King's scripts kept the wrong things secret and instead of creating a satisfying mystery, they merely kept readers in the dark to cover up the fact that the core narrative is surprisingly simple. Despite its simplicity, there are a lot of important dramatic beats that don't get the time they deserve to develop on page, and instead are summarized after the fact. This is not a bad issue, but I do question how the finale can make the entire series feel worth the journey. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 15, 2022

    The pacing is what it is. By far the most interesting aspect of this story is the future Gotham City story with Helena Wayne. The rest of the issue suffers from lack of fully connecting to the narrative because of the lack of tension for what will happen in those two plots. With one issue left I do wonder how King and Mann will tie everything together. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Lee Apr 17, 2022

    Batman/Catwoman #11 is a mixed bag of aimless plotting and genuinely good character drama. It's unfortunate that King decided to make three different narratives of varying qualities. Read Full Review

    When it comes to Batman/Catwoman #11, you have to think of it as two different books: one comprised entirely of art and one comprised entirely of narrative. The former is exquisite. The latter is at least readable. Read Full Review

    This book is just to meta. It is dealing with things that only we know about or care but also what DC has done with the characters. It doesn’t feel real or organic in any way. It literally pulls you out of the story and makes you ponder what is wrong with DC and it’s writers more than what is happening to the characters.

    It could be worse. It's not as bad as the previous issues. But that's the highest praise I can give it.

    I've wasted so much time on this series, so might as well finish it.

    I don't even know what to make of this book at this point. Nothing is working here. I don't know why I should care about Helena protecting Selena. In 11 issues, I haven't found a reason to care. This entire book is predicated on the idea that Selena is making a tough choice to turn against the Joker. I don't buy the concept, I can't get past it. I know I should, but it's ludicrous. This issue has Selina finally give up the Joker and play hero for Bruce in the early timeline, and if you weren't paying attention, you wouldn't realize that that has any significance to the larger narrative. It's not treated as an important moment. The format of this series makes it so it can't be. Phantasm still feels incredibly tacked on. Her suicide in this i more

    Wow. What a miserable piece of shit.

    I always thought of Bendis as Alan Moore’s “bastard” son. A writer too stupid to see the genius of Moore’s work and only taking away the bad things. Bendis? Sit down. Tom King just beat you. Handily. If you thought the Killing Joke was Moore’s worst work (and it is), sit back and suffer the nightmare-fueled comic that is The Killing Joke 2: Mask of the Sadism.

    This may be the single worst comic I have ever read. And that’s saying a lot… I can’t believe at one point I was psyched that King was making Phantasm canon. After this, I wish he hadn’t. I feel like Bruce at the end of MOTP seeing the shining glimmer of Andrea’s locket hanging in the Batcave, opening it an more

    The timelines are poorly put together, Helena beating Dick for the mantle seriously... he is the last robin who would fight her over the mantle let alone he wasn't even fighting her??? This is a complete shit show. at first I thought the series will be about Batman and Catwoman as the title suggested but NO. This has to be some complete shit where Batman is the most lost character, half of the issues Selina is busy with Joker and Helena is a complete asshole.

    did Selina admit she was the reason the bat-family feel apart, and she is owning it like "I not saying it because I am sorry for it, because I am NOT" like seriously. What is the obsession of TOM KING and making the bat family about just these three.
    Well at least now t more

    How does King consistently mess up Batman? He has some amazing books but I always hate when he writes Batman. Rorschach was awesome, The Vision was amazing, Strange Adventures was decent and The Human Target appears to be going well but Killing Time and this so far are absolutely dreadful. I don't know what to rate this maybe the final issue will fix everything or maybe I'm just naïve.
