Well, he’ll soon find out that some questions are better left unasked. If he’s going to test her loyalty, she’s going to test his mettle.

    The drama in this book goes higher here and it's awesome. Tom King writes another fine script, and his passion shows. The artwork is well done. I wish it were Clay Mann for consistency. But hopefully he will be back. I love Sharp too, so it is an easy enough trade off. Read Full Review

    It's very rare to see an art switch mid-stream work out, and even rarer for it to take a title to another level. But while Clay Mann's art was always excellent, Liam Sharp's super-detailed and gritty work is even better for this three-pronged story. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 7, 2021

    Liam Sharp delivers some gritty visuals in this issue and the style perfectly matches the gritty, noir elements of the plot. Shadow is used brilliantly throughout and the visual styles of both the past and present stories work perfectly together. Read Full Review

    Batman/Catwoman #7 marks the beginning of the second half of Tom King's series. Bruce and Selina's romance is a rather odd one, but King's story is exploring it in a fascinating way. King has written some absolutely amazing Batman stories and this series is shaping up to be another classic. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Sep 7, 2021

    Batman/Catwoman #7 is the strongest issue of the series to date. The three-headed monster of a storyline still has its shortcomings, but this time around none of the storylines drag the others down. There's a better balance between action and emotional coherence in King's script this time around and Liam Sharp's thoughtful art elevates the series even higher than before. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens Sep 7, 2021

    WhileBATMAN/CATWOMAN #7 does feel like a bump in the road in some ways, it's also an exciting new chapter for the series. This issue suffers from some of the normal growing pains of a series taking on another artist. Yet, many of these issues are also a result of Sharp working unapologetically in his own style. Which, for everyone reading this series, is very exciting news! Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Lee Sep 8, 2021

    Batman/ Catwoman #7 is starting to show more flaws in the storytelling beats. Given that there is five more issues and maybe a Christmas one-shot special to go, one wonders if King is drawing out his conclusions a little. The plots are all interesting, but the structure of the three time periods maybe detrimental to the overall story. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Scott Waldyn Sep 7, 2021

    Batman/Catwoman #7 feels like it's finally going somewhere, though as to where, we're still in the dark. Liam Sharp takes over for art, and his style works well with Tom King's more serious Bat-yarn. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 7, 2021

    Batman Catwoman remains a disjointed and uninteresting read. King hasn't figured out the best approach to make his time jumping story work and it's just slowly playing out in the least exciting manner possible. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 7, 2021

    While a lot of people will love Liam Sharp's contribution to this issue, it left me wishing that Clay Mann was still the artist because it's essentially the only redeeming quality for me in this series as the story just doesn't do anything and when it tries, it feels weird and on the verge of being horrible to the characters it's presenting. Hopefully though, since we didn't get much story in the first half of this series, maybe we'll start getting things picked up with the rest of this series but if this issue is any indication, I'm not going to hold my breath.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 12, 2021

    There are so many missed opportunities in Batman/Catwoman #7 that it gets to the point of being infuriating. That anger all comes from have such high hopes Tom King would deliver an epic conclusion to his Batman run. Now after this issue I'm not so sure anymore. Which makes all the emotions I am left with for this series turn into sadness with that realization. Read Full Review

    Every issue of Batman/Catwoman has somehow managed to get worse than the one before it, but this week's Batman/Catwoman #7 is spectacularly awful. Read Full Review
