A secret file out-lining the ins and outs of the criminal underworld of Villa Hermosa is on the streets, and every crook is after it. Whoever possesses this info can control everything, and some of the town's hoods are even bringing in outside agents like Lock-Up and Gentleman Ghost to act as their champions-which, let's face it, you're going to need if you're going to try to outsmart Catwoman. Making things even more dangerous for Selina Kyle, there is also a price on her head. If you can capture the database and kill the Catwoman, the payoff is double!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 14, 2019

    Ram V teased his two=parter on Twitter back in May: #14 and #15 see Selina going up against a gallery of villains for control of the city she calls home. Sounds like fun. Gentleman Ghost was fun at the hands of Ram V and Andolfo. Itll be interesting to see what they have in store for Catwoman next issue. In the course of the story, it becomes apparent that a price has been put on her head. Who will step out of the shadows to take down Catwoman?  Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 14, 2019

    Ram V, coming off his highly effective Justice League Dark annual two weeks ago, seems to have become a regular co-writer on this title as Joelle Jones only does half the issues or so. I'm not sure who does a better job, but V's issues are definitely more what long-time readers of the character will expect " high-octane caper action. Read Full Review

    This issue does have a cool villain in it as well. Honestly, it was a far better issue than I ever expected. That's a good thing. Sure it won't change the world. But it was just enjoyable. And sometimes that's really all you need. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jessica Nilo Alves Aug 15, 2019

    Perfectly balanced between a stand-alone storyline with an in-continuity background, this issue is less of a Year of the Villain story and more of a Catwoman story, requiring no further reading of the current event to understand the plot. Incredibly in-character, Ram-V and Mirka Andolfo explore the stepping stones laid by Jolle Jones in the past year magnificently while still making this their own Selina in their own Villa Hermosa.

    Jones creates a narrative that feels like a good push forward for the series, in an issue that's funny, bizarre, emotional and action-packed all at once. Read Full Review

    V Ram has shown up again and he's brought some cool guest stars with him.  The art is great and by the end, you realize that it's all about hunting the most dangerous animal...(Catwo)man!  This is the type of issue this book needs more of. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Aug 14, 2019

    Catwoman #14 is a mostly successful attempt to inject energy into a somewhat aimless series. Ram V's script manages to pack a fair amount of characterization into a small amount of pages with the aid of Andolfo's expressive facial work. While the action sequences themselves are a tad stiff, the book keeps a fast pace and changes its stakes often enough to remain engaging. The Catwoman title has been plagued by a lack of consistency and relevance in the greater scheme of the DC Universe (the title itself spun out of Batman #50), but Catwoman #14 shows a potential path forward.

    Finally we get a Catwoman story!!! Of course it took a different writer on the book to give it to us but finally after over a year we get a Catwoman story that showcases Catwoman more as herself. I loved how all through the story she was thinking about Batman and what he would think of what she was up to. I loved the pace of the story. Unlike with Joelle Jones writing this issue had excitement, emotions, action, energy, forward momentum and well just plain more to it. The writing in this issue was leaps and bounds better than Jones. Joelle Jones needs to be replaced. Give the book to V. Ram for awhile. Ram has breathed life into this issue that is for sure. In fact the only ting I wasn't totally happy with was the art. It started out good b more

    I usually don't like this writer very much, but they did a really good job making this feel like a companion to Batman.
