In the wake of her run-in with Batman and the loss of someone very dear to her, Catwoman turns over a new leaf. With a new attitude, a new partner and a new game plan, she embarks on a new journey: She's stealing hot cars. The competition isn't too happy about it, and the Gotham PD are that much closer to nailing her. There's only one way out: Drive really, really fast.

    The whole book is vibrant and bursting with a rebellious energy that is hard not to enjoy. Selina continues to be a compelling character and her supporting cast is beginning to emerge. This issue isn't an award winner but it is great fun. To ignore Catwoman is to miss out on some wonderful work by Winick and Melo. Read Full Review

    Adriana Melo jumped in an issue early (originally only solicited for #8) to give March a little bit more time off. I have to say, her stuff here I liked. It fit March's style well, and Tomeu Morey's coloring helped. A lot better than Melo's Birds of Prey fill in from a while back. Read Full Review

    This issue is a laughable and pleasant surprise. It is the perfect "guilty pleasure" comic. For a more relaxed Catwoman and some fun dialogue and situations, pick up Catwoman's seventh issue. Read Full Review

    It's still unclear whether this book can really hold its own over the long term. The building blocks are in place, but Winick needs to do more to push the characters and conflicts along. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Mar 22, 2012

    Overall, issue #7 is a passable, but overall forgettable issue about Catwoman making a new friend who we won't ever get a feel for until issue #8. Seeing as how he appears to be a "meta-human" (think Static Shock, but Asian) I'm not that excited about it. Read Full Review

    Like I said, this book has the potential to be great if Selina was just written like the smart, savvy, clever character she has the potential to be. Instead, we have a character who doesn't take account into her actions, is too reckless, and has no consideration for the lives of other people who are putting themselves on the line to help her. Additionally, at the start of this series we saw a lot of emotional development. We learned that Selina was actually a very broken character, but this isn't something we have seen touched upon in the last couple of issues. I'm hoping that Selina can learn to take better care of herself and starts playing smarter. An entire issue of Catwoman stealing fast cars wasn't all that interesting. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Mar 23, 2012

    Overall, this book just feels like an afterthought – especially after the fantastic "Penguin: Pain and Prejudice" book, which took a Batman villain, fleshed him out and gave him a great story. This just seems like it's trying to fill the sexy female quota for the New 52, and does so in the laziest way possible. Winick can do so much better than this – hell, he IS doing so much better than this in "Batwing." And until the stories move up the chain from vapid to at least mildly interesting, that will be the only Winick book worth purchasing. Read Full Review
