    On a seperate note all of the Batman supporting titles that came out this week were excellent reads and if you're not reading them I would definitely suggest picking up Batgirl, Nightwing, Birds of Prey and Catwoman – all great spin offs from the Bat. Read Full Review

    Catwoman #20 has one too many cooks in the bad guy kitchen as Nocenti juggles Catwoman's rivalry with the Penguin and the reappearance of the demon Escalate. While they're both worthy adversaries and could be interesting plot points in their own right, neither is done any favors by being packed into the same issue together. That being said, the escalation of hostilities between Catwoman and the Penguin is shaping up to be a title fight worth watching since the two characters exist at opposite ends of the spectrum. Selina is the Lone Ranger ofthievery, even if she is running with the JLA -- for now -- and Penguin is the head of a corporation of crime. It's a good dichotomy and Nocenti may have just found the narrative thread to make the series live up to its potential. Read Full Review

    It's not the worst issue of Catwoman I've read and there are a few glimmers of a halfway decent story in there, but it's all buried underneath some pointless demon possession nonsense. You don't need to read this before checking out the annual, you don't need to read it at all. Please, please DC, stop killing a great character with this awful series. Oh how I wish Nocenti did half as good of a job writing Selina as she does writing for Joker or Penguin. Read Full Review

    I haven't been reading "Catwoman" since the first issue of this series in September of 2011. Admittedly, I may not be the most well informed reader of this series, but I do know incomplete storytelling when I see it. The coloring duo of Sonia Oback and Guy Major do a decent job of holding the visuals together around the similar styles the three pencilers deliver, but the visual panel-to-panel of "Catwoman" #20 leaves me tremendously disappointed. I expected mirthful mayhem and maybe some oddball fisticuffs between Catwoman and Penguin, but got none of that. If this is what I can expect from "Catwoman," I'm pretty sure I'll be taking another twenty-issue break from this title. Read Full Review
