    If Nocenti had pitted Selina against a cadre of Batman's foes " simultaneously, and on their home turf " I think she would have had a bestselling trade on her hands. That's saying a lot for this character and for DC right now, as they continue to throw WTF curveballs that spike sales but leave little lasting effect. No matter " while this comic doesn't quite hit its full potential, Catwoman #19 is definitely a huge improvement from what's come before. This is certainly worth a look. Read Full Review

    The art is definitely better as the colors and inking really made her character pop. That's something you expect when you read a book of a character like Catwoman. Read Full Review

    She isn't a hero, though she can be heroic when she chooses to be. Nor is she a villain though she does enjoy stealing from people who have far more than they need. Catwoman has her own moral compass that she follows even when she's the only person who can read it. Nocenti dabbles in these shades of gray and for the first time in her run, Selina feels like Selina. Read Full Review

    The artwork is decent; it flows well from panel to panel and everyone is drawn very well. Also, despite the fight scene with Vortex being more like filler, it was really exciting and intense. Occasionally though, the artwork has some moments where people do this weird Stalone impression with their lips and Catwoman's entire body becomes extremely elastic. Read Full Review

    I keep dipping back into "Catwoman" because I want it to be better than it is, and every now and then there's a promise of a story (or a great fold-out cover) that holds so much promise. In the end, though, I just keep feeling like this is a book that has the good basic ideas down pat, but keeps failing to flesh everything out enough in the actual execution. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Apr 18, 2013

    It's a good concept but really it's just a side-story to the real tale which will be in JLA #3 and JLA #4 so there's really no point in reading this. It could've been a very thrilling episode but it's poorly executed with an overly simple escape, awful dialogue (“Cured? I'd rather be dead. I like to steal. It's fun.”, “Smashing you two gives me great pleasure.”) and weak and inconsistent artwork. I have no idea how this comic book continues to exist. It's sad to see such a great character bastardized month after month after month. Read Full Review
