    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Jun 14, 2015

    I want to make myself clear: Catwoman #41 is an excellent comic book, easily DCs best. Unfortunately those damn half-page ads, while tolerable in other books, were impossible to ignore in this issue. Loughridges colours and the books prestige drama tone clash with the gaudy colours and the models insufferable smirk. The ad forces your attention away from the story no matter how hard you try to ignore it. It was nauseating and severely hurt the reading experience. I implore DC to give up on this experiment and find new ways to wring money out of advertisers because this just isnt working. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 11, 2015

    I'm recommending this as a buy, not particularly this issue, but since Valentine took over. This issue on its own isn't a great starting point for new readers, though I'd imagine those already reading will be pleased. New readers might want to go back a bit. It seems like a series that's both beautifully written and drawn. Sadly I haven't kept up with the series, but not time like the present to go back and catch up. Read Full Review

    Catwoman continues to build upon itself as it leads into the second chapter of a story that is sure to define the character for years! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 11, 2015

    This issue won't be especially welcoming to newcomers, what with its vast web of criminal conspiracies and the fact that Selina KYle is semi-retired as Catwoman. However, for those who have been following the book since Genevieve Valentine's run began last fall, you'll find the book hasn't lost its appeal during the two-month hiatus. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 11, 2015

    Genevieve Valentine continues her reshaping of Catwoman and while this issue is mostly setup, it is very emotional setup.  Selina's reaction to the news of Batman's death was one of the best scenes in a long, long time and it looks like it will springboard this book in a new direction as well.  Whatever happens in the future, I'll be there since this book continues being one of my surprise favorites. Recommended for returning fans...newcomers should go back and read from the start of this run. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jun 10, 2015

    This is a great return to form for this title with a few minor hiccups along the way. The setup might be taking its time, but whats being set up has all the hallmarks of an absolutely fantastic, epic mob movie with one of the best reimaginings of an old, OLD character that has happened in recent memory. CATWOMANs strengths lie in the core cast and this issue delivers a satisfying check-in of them. While its not perfect, it feels like this is going to be one of those titles that, when the payoff DOES come, its going to make the entire journey seem even better and well worth it.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 12, 2015

    Selina Kyle is at the heart of it all, as befits a titular character. "Catwoman" #41 gives readers a complete definition of Kyle's deeds, both as the head of the Calabreses and as Catwoman. Revelations in this comic cement her status, elevate the risk and offer plenty of opportunities for dynamic stories filled with physical and mental conflict. Catwoman isn't gaining many allies here; she's finding few answers and even fewer happy endings, which makes for plenty of great drama. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Jun 11, 2015

    Though I'm going to ding the rating for these issues I don't want to take too much away from this story line. I think this is a series to watch and I look forward to the next installment, especially with Catwoman on the hunt for Batman. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jun 16, 2015

    This isn't a Catwoman comic, it's a mobster comic, and I felt I was taken. I was bored and lost with the story. I'll skim the next issue before purchasing it. Read Full Review
