    There is so much going on with this title right now, and its only been two issues. THIS is the Catwoman DC Comics NEEDS to have in its repertoire. The one from the Sirens was good, but the rebooted Catwoman has so much more life and energy to her. Keep up the good work Judd and Guillem, youre doing one Hell of a job! Read Full Review

    Catwoman #2 far exceeded my expectations and is the best second issue of the New 52 that I have read so far with the omission of the first couple of pages. Catwoman was fun to watch and the story provided some top-notch violence and many twists and turns leading to a great climax that will have readers ready with their claws out in anticipation to dig into the next issue of Catwoman.

    A Comic Book Blog - Daniel Cole Oct 20, 2011

    So with it's second issue Catwoman manages to capture the title characters essence, keeps the plot moving, throws in some great character interaction and ends on a shocker. Time will tell if the decision to take such an intriguing character off the board permanently, will ultimately be the right one. But for now the fallout of this issue is something that this reviewer is really interested in seeing. There is a sense of style to the book which really sells the character. Hopefully people will look past the images at the beginning and see the great work Winick and March are doing on here. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 19, 2011

    The action here is decent but it's the party itself that I thoroughly enjoyed and the assessment she makes about the relationship and sexuality she has with Batman. It's almost a guilty pleasure, but honestly I feel no guilt at all here. This is a Catwoman I can enjoy just as much as the playful one that should appear in other books with a reduced sexuality.

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Oct 21, 2011

    For these reasons, I'm a little less excited about the future of Catwoman, but I'm not going to take points away from something because it has the potential to be sub-par in the next issue. I had a good time watching Catwoman get revenge, get rich, and above all else, toy with the boys. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - TTaylor Dec 26, 2011

    This cover, like the issue itself, calls to mind some of the classic Catwoman/Batman stories. Standing on one of his signature gargoyles, Batman holds Selina in the air with one arm as they kiss. He holds his grappling line; she holds her whip. It's an image highly reminiscent of their old rooftop chases. Read Full Review

    And Batman knew Selina was Catwoman. Yup, the deed is done, in all its raunchy glory, but there's more to this comic than just the sex... I think. We get a closer look into Selina, the way she acts towards her relationship with Batman, the way she interacts with her friends and how she manipulates people. Is this the same Selina/Catwoman that has always been? Or is a new one all together? She's rawer, more like a live wire, a bit of a cocky smartass. But wasn't she always? What has Winick done? I'm not upset over whatever it is because I love Catwoman in any form, including the over the top, hissingly snide villainess in Batman: Brave and the Bold television show. I just want to know how he did it. How did he take a character formula, change basically nothing and have a whole new version of the same character? Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 19, 2011

    But ultimately, in a time when I'm struggling to keep track of the plot points of 52 assorted new DC books, I'm never in danger of forgetting Catwoman. That has to count for something. Read Full Review

    I honestly like this series so far. I think it's provocative, sexy and fun and I think it does a good job depicting Selina as being a smart character, as well. I wasn't too crazy about the ending. The tone definitely took a different turn, and I have to wonder whether or not it would have been more effective to keep Lola alive than to kill her off in the second issue. What Lola's death does do, however, is put Catwoman's lifestyle into perspective for her: whoever she brings into the fold she is ultimately putting in danger, something that is alluded to in the beginning of the issue. I'm honestly not crazy about Guillem March's art in the comic; I think another artist would have provided a different tone for the character. Read Full Review
