Its buyer beware when Selina purchases a new house but Catwoman is much more interested in the treasure that lies beneath the property!

    It's strange yet ironic that Nocenti ends her run with an issue that focuses solely on someone who isn't Selina. Perhaps Nocenti had a new story arc in mind, but was pulled from the title before getting to pen a more conclusive story. Nocenti leaves behind a long run of assorted detours in Selina's life: pulling Gotham PD strings, working at a suicide hotline, exploring Gotham Underground, and taking on strange villains until Batman comes to rescue her. Perhaps the essence of who Selina Kyle is was lost in her own stories. With Sholly Fisch writing September's Catwoman: Futures End #1 and October's Catwoman #35 debuting writer Genevieve Valentine, Selina's next chapter looks promising and exciting. Read Full Review

    Ann's also been a HUGE advocate for finding ways to make comics more accessible for people " especially through the digital market. The fact that she pushes for more kids and women to involve themselves with comics, is pretty respectful. I discuss the negative aspects of Catwoman so much, that I think it tarnishes her name as well. The reality is, her history with comics, what she's done for women and children over time, and her push to make comics more accessible for people across the board, is pretty amazing. And for that, I give Ann Nocenti an 8/10. Unfortunately, for this issue, I give it a" Read Full Review

    It's no shock that Ann Nocenti's last Catwoman issue is a mess.  Only Ann would end her run with a ridiculous story starring Alice Tesla.  Yes, Catwoman is there, but she plays second fiddle in a symphony no one wants to hear.  I envy the new creative team since anything they do will be an improvement over this utter crap.

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Aug 27, 2014

    Catwoman #34 is a completely weak and underwhelming finale to Nocenti's Catwoman run. The story was unengaging, Catwoman barely did anything in the actual issue, the writing was a mess, and the artwork was just forgettable and drab. And, fittingly, that's how Nocenti's entire run ends. It started with an god-awful origin story and ended falling flat on its face and breaking its nose. I'd wager a guess that most people will end up remembering this run as easily the worst comic book run of the New 52. Read Full Review

    The end of CATWOMAN #34 has a tease for futures end and “The death of Selina Kyle!” and honestly that's something I wish would come sooner so this comic could be put to rest. Read Full Review
