With the power vacuum left behind by the fall of the Creel family, Catwoman finds herself in a unique position to become the top crook in Villa Hermosa. Her only obstacles are all the other bad guys who call the city home. Can Catwoman run this gauntlet to reach boss level herself?

    After a brief interlude last issue, Joelle Jones and company are back to Catwoman, and they're continuing to craft a genuinely fun tale. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Apr 10, 2019

    Overall, Catwoman #10 moved the story along and gives readers what you want from Selina Kyle. Theft, style, grimy streets, criminality, and action. I felt like the execution of it could have been more streamlined, but it doesn't degrade the book as a whole. I'm curious to see how the war against Penguin ends up. I love this comic, as it's one of the rare times I root for cats. Whether or not you are a fan of the Bat Family of titles, Catwoman is money well spent. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 10, 2019

    Catwoman #10 jumps around nearly as much as a Christopher Nolan movie, starting in the thick of the action with one of Selina's allies in the back of a truck as Selina and one of her allies play their part in a high-end art auction. Jumping back and forth, we're introduced to these two characters before their story actually begins. It's a tricky way to kick off the issue, but I think it works " letting us follow along with their adventures and get to know them through their actions. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Apr 10, 2019

    This book is pretty solid. Jones and Blanco work wonderfully together. This comic book won't change the world but there is a lot of like. It did feel a little short, but I enjoyed it. It's a nice breezy book that you forget about quickly, but you enjoy your time while you are there. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 10, 2019

    Presumably, Jones and Blanco will have a chance to settle down into something a bit less disjointed next issue, but for the time being the creative team is juggling a lot of different elements with admirable poise in Catwomans tenth issue. Read Full Review

    While it's good to be back on the main story, the issue ultimately feels a little light and, therefore, unsatisfying. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Jay Apr 19, 2019

    While the art is an improvement from last issue and the cliffhanger offered some resolution, there are a lot of disconnections and missed opportunities. If Blanco is coming back next week he has to work on his animatics in conveying Selina's flow of motion. Cover art quality is good but lacking in relevance to the interior pages. Good points on showing Maggie still traumatized and paralleling that with a Pet Semetary-esque Adam Creel. I feel that Jolle should get back to the interiors because the initial artwork established a tone. While Fernando tries to capture it, it's still a different style. This book has promise, as does its plot, but the eyes tend to wander a little too much. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Apr 10, 2019

    It's easy to assume that this issue was without direction. In terms of the plot of the meeting with Penguin in issue 7 and 8, not a lot has been added and there aren't any big shaking reveals. What there is, is a lot of thread pulling. The openness and the scope for consequences our hero could soon face are huge. The quality of the way this character is written, plus the simple brilliance of this issue's art has me eager for more. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Adrian Care Apr 10, 2019

    It's good enough without hitting any truly great heights. The disjointed narrative didn't work for me as much as it did in the last issue and the beats lack the punch that they should pack. But it's all set up with (hopefully) payoff all coming next issue. Heist stories are fine, and you expect them in a Catwoman story, but this issue feels a little too run of the mill.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 10, 2019

    Selina continues to slog trough Villa Hermosa and while I really like the way Joelle Jones writes the character, there is just nothing interesting going on.  This book has been hit or miss with me the entire run and this one was a miss. Read Full Review
