    Major Spoilers - Jimmy Aug 21, 2012

    If you didn't realize it, this issue marked the end of Judd Winick's run on Catwoman. He's received a lot of flack for his portrayal of Selina Kyle, but even new writer Ann Nocenti (most recently notable for writing an orgy scene in Green Arrow involving three girls who were functioning primarily as sex dolls and somehow not enraging every person who criticized the oversexualization of Catwoman and Starfire because Ann Nocenti is a girl and therefore is apparently allowed to sexualize women) has acknowledged the reckless fun way Selina has been written is a good direction for the character. This issue ends an arc which has seen an evolution of Selina's responsibility and simultaneously wraps up some loose ends to prepare things for Ann Nocenti's run. If you haven't been reading the title, this isn't a good place to start, but it was a good issue. Catwoman #12 earns three and a half stars out of five; it was above average, but the art dragged it down. Read Full Review

    Good issue, liked it. Wrapped up Judd Winicks little run nicely, teasing some potential plot points later. I've got to admit, I had thought "This dude has to be involved with the Dollmaker right?" before, but for some reason just thought it was just too similar to be related and a complete oversight by anyone involved... I don't know everything, this is true. I was surprised how quickly Spark got wrapped up, especially with Selina not learning of his betrayal. I don't know if it's just someone who Ann Nocenti didn't have plans for, or if it will be continued later with his death. Again, not really feeling Melo's art... just kind of generic, but nothing is new in those regards. Over all, the issue didn't floor me, it was just good, did it's job. Read Full Review

    So, this issue feels like Winick had to finish his storylines for the next writer. It feels rushed and it damages the good work he has been doing on the book. It isn't helped by distinctly average art.However his Selina is a compelling character and we can only hope that she continues to be as Ann Nocenti takes over. Read Full Review

    This book needs more -- stronger character dynamics, a greater sense of purpose, and a more emotionally resonant conflict for Selina to contend with. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Aug 16, 2012

    Overall I thought it was a pretty average comic. Anybody who has already been reading Catwoman is definitely going to pick it up just so they can see how Winick's run ended but new readers won't find anything of interest. Old readers like myself will likely feel a bit empty since they wanted a grander finish to a pretty exciting run. Read Full Review
