Catwoman has made her choice: she will use the map Lex Luthor gave her to prevent Raina Creel from finding the Lazarus Pit and rebuilding herself. But has Selina fully weighed the cost? To go this route, she will effectively be taking over all crime in Villa Hermosa, a secret she will have to keep hidden from the Batman. That is, if she survives Raina's deadly counter attack. The Creels have already been experimenting with life after death, and the assassins they send to stop   Selina will come armed with more than nine lives!

    If this issue is any indication, Catwoman is really hitting its stride with this issue. Read Full Review

    The story was great right up until the end. Maybe that weird cliffhanger will be explained next issue. Either way, the art is great and it is a mostly fun issue that is very entertaining. Read Full Review

    We're shuffled along from one set piece or another, in Catwoman #18. The issue perfectly sets us on a fever pitch towards a bubbling point. We all have much to be excited about going into the next instalment. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 20, 2019

    The guest appearance of Zatanna makes for a fun excursion from the central plot. Its an appealing diversion that allows Jones to cast her own distinct light on a delightful character. Jones should do this sort of thing more often. Kyle is so completely solitary. Its very refreshing to see her in the presence of others who are compatible with her personality. Read Full Review

    After spinning its wheels for a while, with Catwoman #18 this title feels like it's getting on track with Joelle Jones back at the helm and a ticking clock before Selina dovetails back into the Bat-books for the upcoming Batman/Catwoman. Read Full Review

    If nothing else, you need to make sure if you are a collector to sew your timelines together. Jones has turned a corner from the past issues as the new writer and illustrator. She has breathed new life into this comic and it should definitely be a part of your collection! Read Full Review

    Popping Jones’ art off of the page is Laura Allred’s amazing colors. If you’ve seen her work before, you know her colors are some of the best in the business. Allred’s style of solid colors really compliment Jone’s line and ink work and make everything look so good. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Dec 19, 2019

    Jones' Catwoman is a gorgeous book each and every time Jones herself is on art duties. Fortunately, Blanco's art compliments Jones' well enough to not totally derail the issue on an art level and his two-page spreads are a joy to pour over. Unfortunately, Jones' plotting leaves much to be desired. The dialogue and characterization remain solid, but Jones's overarching narrative has lost focus between the recent non-linear storytelling and inconsistent tone that has emerged. Read Full Review

    Another issue of Catwoman where not much goes on to push the story forward and while I love seeing Zatanna in this issue, I'd rather have seen a bit of story to go along with her.  The issue looks great thanks to Jones and Fernando Blanco on art, but even with that, there just isn't much to see here.

    Prelude:
    Joelle Jones' Catwoman has been a mixed bag but picked up last issue. Let's see how it goes here.

    The Good:
    I did like Selina and Zatanna's interactions with each other.

    Jones art was great especially for the fight scenes.

    The Bad:
    This story is moving way too slow.

    Likewise, we're still dealing with Creel. It feels like we're moving nowhere with this.

    Conclusion:
    While the fight scenes, interactions and art was good, this story is moving too slowly and it feels like progress has never been made in this series despite being eighteen issues in.

    As usual with me I liked parts here and there and hated parts of this issue as well.

    Disliked.....

    1. This story is still moving way too slow. We are 18 issues into the story and we still don't know the motives behind Creels actions beyond her wanting power. Why is she turning her kids into zombies? How? What does this mean over all?Why does she look the way she does and no one seem to notice that she's missing parts of her face?

    2. The fight scenes were rather lackluster. For starters Catwoman is a much better fighter then shown here. I don't know about Zee, she's usually shown only fighting with her magic.

    3. I didn't like Selina and Zatanna's interactions with each other. Normally they more
