    The Rainbow Hub - Emma Houxbois Aug 14, 2015

    Overall, Catwoman #43 marks the end of the series being a boutique title that exists in a space of it's own to becoming intimately tied into the wider structure of the Gotham books in a big way while remaining true to what made it such a unique book to begin with. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 16, 2015

    Genevieve Valentine ups the ante this month and shows the reader that nobody is safe.  This issue sets into motion so much of what Valentine has been building and it only looks to get more intense from here on out.  While it's still a smart crime drama, I really enjoyed the action and while I thought the Selina/Bruce Wayne bit felt forced, I loved seeing Selina in the catsuit.  David Messina's art was really good and I continue to enjoy the hell out of this series.

    “Catwoman” continues to be one of the very best DC books. This issue builds up a lot more tension to an already tense book and the art is great. Valentine and Messina are creating a classic Catwoman story that will be remembered for a very long time. Read Full Review

    Also, the story seems to be heating up and you can really feel the tight spot Selina is getting herself into. The world here feels wide and well thought out finally so I am hopeful that this book is on the right track. Read Full Review

    Overall, most of the various plots felt a little bit cheated for space by all the other plots " but not enough of a good thing is a pretty good problem to have. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Aug 18, 2015

    Valentine has a way of testing the allegiances of her cast. I especially love her take on Penguin. His role in the story is a bit of a wild card, but each move he makes appears cold and precise. David Messina makes each character look regal, a savage nobility. This is the most action-heavy issue of Catwoman since the beginning of the Overarching Calabrese story, but it never quite got me excitement. They were over and done too quickly. Read Full Review

    Meanwhile, the Hasigawa Family and Sionis have found out that a few men have defected to the Calabrese family. While they prepare their strategy, Eiko and Spoiler head out into town to see what they can find. The women split up, and shortly after, Eiko ruins into Sionis — it doesn't end well for her, and hints at the introduction of a new, vicious character. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Aug 16, 2015

    Three issues is more than enough time to sample a series and I'm out. I'd like more than two pagesof Catwoman in a book titled Catwoman, and I'm absolutely bored with gangster politics. I love the art but just don't care about any aspect ofthis story. Sorry, DC. Read Full Review
