    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson May 8, 2019

    The art is a tag team event this month between Blanco and Petrus and it is very well done. The art is almost seamless and keeps up the gritty style. The chase and acrobatics pages are spectacular. Selina is elegant and a powerhouse all in one. This tag team effort gets complemented by the coloring of Kalisz who mutes much of the hues in the dark night of the chase. He contrasts this by offering an open brightness in the daytime talk among the Creel brood. Saida Temofonte manages the heavy dialogue scenes well. It would be easy to crowd up word balloons and drown out the art but she handles it expertly. She also makes sound effects in a smaller font size, which I tend to prefer. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 8, 2019

    For about four pages, this issue is impressively breathtaking as Catwoman ride a motorcycle in pursuit of the truck. Its not enough to make the issue entirely satisfying, but its really impressive that Jones and company did as good a job as they did making that one action sequence feel as intense as it does. If only the issue had animated by a bit more of that kind of action it might have been amazing. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz May 8, 2019

    The first half to the book has art by Blanco, which is what I preferred. That's not to say the second half by Petrus isn't bad, I just preferred Blanco's art. It's a simple issue that's pretty enjoyable. And sometimes that's all you need. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley May 10, 2019

    Structured around an extended chase sequence - first between vehicles, then on foot -Catwoman #11's big draw is in how the thrill of motion can be conveyed through sequential, yet still images. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Adrian Care May 8, 2019

    This issue has shed a lot of the fat of the previous one and focuses on intense action and celebrity flash. A gorgeously drawn, fast-paced race that will leave you out of breath. There's not much more to it than that, but it works all the same. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray May 9, 2019

    ConclusionJones has filled Catwoman #11 with lots of little tweaks to the genre. This issue has been one of the strongest in the run visually, but hasn't done much for the ongoing story. What it has done admirably, is give an indication as to what further trials and tribulations our dear Miss Kyle could be facing in the coming issues. With the understated but dramatic ending, I think we have much to look forward to. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Amit Malaviya May 19, 2019

    Another decompressed issue with some some funny moments, while this is still better than some Catwoman stories of days gone by, its not living up to the quality that was put forth by the first story arc, and thats a disappointment. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jessica Nilo Alves May 9, 2019

    In a issue that is more connective tissue than limb, Jolle Jones manages to keep the story interesting by giving Mrs. Creel her own zombie sidekick, if he could be called that. With some minor bumps in the art department, the issue will likely be better read when in trade. Read Full Review

    In terms of plot, things don't advance in a massive way, but there's still enough to make fans eager to read the next issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 8, 2019

    I really want to like this book, but there is nothing of note going on with the story and most of the characters are either forgettable or just forgotten.  It feels like this is a placeholder until Catwoman has bigger and better things to do and because of that, I can't recommend to anyone who isn't grabbing it for the Artgerm covers.

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan May 9, 2019

    Time will tell on Catwoman. After her recent departure from Batman's life in a pretty dramatic way, we can only hope their paths will cross sooner than later. Catwoman is having a tough time carrying her own title and perhaps its time for her to go away for a bit. Too much of any good thing is too much! Read Full Review
