    Despite these issues, I'm giving it a 4/5 for being a dramatic and stunning cover as long as one doesn't look too hard at it. Read Full Review

    So, even though the book is moving into a crossover, Winick makes sure it is relevant to the book. On top of that he has managed to make a male sidekick for Catwoman seem like a good idea and the dynamic between the two is perfectly played out. It's a fast paced issue with a lot of fun to be had. Winick has a plan and it will be interesting to see where he takes Selina in the coming months. Read Full Review

    If I had to take anything away from it is that I found Melo's work a little less refined compared to last issue, but that may be due to there being two inkers on the book this time. Guillem March coming back next issue! Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Apr 18, 2012

    This was not a bad comic book. There are some definite flaws with the book, and it's not the best comic ever; but it has improved from the last two or three issues. I liked the way Winick tied the three significant events together in this book and it did leave me looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    As I mentioned last month, the series is improving of late because Winick is showing a clearer sense of purpose and direction in his plotting. Even the build-up towards "Night of the Owls" seems to benefit the series rather than constrict it. Winick's next goal should be to better flesh out Spark, assuming the character is destined for more than a transient role in the book. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Nicole D'Andria May 1, 2012

    This is a solid issue of Catwoman. It's storyline, while going through the same basic motions as previous issues, has several things spicing it up including Spark, the dialogue, and the addition of several other enticing plot elements. With the exception of the pencils, things seem to be looking up for our favorite feline fatale. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Apr 18, 2012

    Overall it's an alright book. Catwoman's changing face is a bit of an annoyance, but at least Spark wasn't! And the story Winick is cooking up appears to be going places, unlike the last arc which was basically just a bunch of stand-alone adventures that were incredibly fun but lacked depth. He's even found a way to blend the Court of Owls into the current plot quite nicely. It's not a must-have issue, but it was definitely an enjoyable read. Read Full Review
