Chaos reigns in Villa Hermosa as all the bad guys in town rush to fill the void left by the Creel family's ouster. But as Raina Creel's dark plot to resurrect her son comes to a gruesome crescendo, Catwoman may finally be able to put her foe down once and for all. That is, if she can reconcile her own past and find her footing again.

    If art crime and espionage-flavored superheroing interests you, Catwoman should be right up your alley. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 12, 2019

    Visual inconsistency aside, Jones packs a lot of plot and character development into 20 or so pages. Through it all, Catwoman remains a rather great mystery at the heart of the series. Shes a mystery hidden in plain sight. The series focuses so mainly on the surface of her life and what shes doing that her inner thoughts arent allowed to make it to the page. This maintains more than enough mystery to keep her interesting. Read Full Review

    The art by Blanco and Petrus round out the issue well. I must confess I do enjoy Blanco more, but Petrus is a solid artist as well. It's just a personal preference. Together however, they bring home the story by Joelle Jones rather well. And I can't wait to see how it all ends. Read Full Review

    This arc has been a fun return to form for the series after the overcomplicated last arc, and it's good to see Selina in her element as a thief again. But the main villain and pacing need some work. Read Full Review

    This issue mixes high-octane action sequences with some slightly smaller character moments, with mostly entertaining results. Read Full Review

    Cover art " superb! Story line " it's getting better. New love interest for Selina " I'm not a fan as I'm still holding out for her to settle down with Bruce after the Year of the Villain. We can all dream".right? Damian needs a little brother to take his edge off. Read Full Review

    This may not be the ground breaking, pioneering of the comics medium that we got in the late 80s, I don't think anything could be, but Catwoman #12 is what comics these days should be. Brave enough to tell its own story, but with respect to the ongoing arc. High stakes action alongside deep prose narrative. This is masterful stuff right here. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 12, 2019

    While this issue fills in a bunch of things, I think it will read way better in trade.  As just a single issue, it kind of stalls the overall story, even as it sets up some things that I am looking forward to in the future.  The art is good and besides the pacing, this is one of the better issues of this series as of late.

    An issue bloated with some unnecessary flashbacks and narrative choices, it's not the best issue of Catwoman, but it does set up some very important things near the end. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 17, 2019

    When Catwoman #12 focused on moving the plot forward by showing us what Selina Kyle and Raina Creel were doing it was at its best. Joelle Jones has done a great job in developing them both as strong rivals. If it wasn't for the narrative choice spend half the issue with flashbacks to previous scenes from Selina Kyle's sidekick's, Carlos, perspective this issue would have been stronger. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jessica Nilo Alves Jun 13, 2019

    An issue that reads like a Previously on Catwoman and looks like a roller coaster. Its biggest merit is summing up the entire arc until this point, something that needed to be done for how convoluted it has been until now. Read Full Review

    Oh no, characters I don't remember are in trouble. At least we have a boring heist to help assuage our worry.

    The art is awesome!!! Two issues of car chases. Really??? The story just plain sucks.It's boring!!! Jones is killing this character. Why is she ruining this character? Does she not like Catwoman? If she makes Catwoman cheat on Bat's before they get to have their story in the Batman / Catwoman series I'll stop buying the book. Don't ruin Catwoman's character like that. She had loved Batman for so long she would NOT be over him this fast and wanting to move on. Let their story play out first. The fans were screwed over with the non-wedding as it is. At least let them have this. It's bad enough we have to put up with boring stories that is probably going to tank the series soon at least show the fans some respect and don't turn her into a slu more

    This issue was ok, but nothing special. Mrs. Creel is still an interesting villain& I’m glad Selina has a new love interest. Kings Batcat drama is just awful to read, so I’m glad we are seeing something else at least in Catwoman.
    The problem is, that the plot is just so slow to ever be really interesting. Wish we would get some story progression between Selina& her sister.

    This book continues to be plagued by a glacial pace for a story that honestly isn't all that interesting. It feels like we are missing a lot of information and I'm not sure that we're going to get it. It's standard caper stuff, but it doesn't feel like something that should be taking this long.

    There are some questionable advances with Selina's character in this issue, but I'll wait to see how things play out before making any final judgements. I know many fans most won't be very happy.

    The art was decent, though the book would still benefit more from Jones' art than her writing.

    This book has disappointed me, the plot has become very boring and there are things that are too forced. I really hope it will improve in the next installments, otherwise I will stop reading this story.

    The action in this series is consistently excellent, but it would be nice to feel a sense of conclusion to the events started from #1.
