+ Pull List

The fight between Catwoman and Raina Creel turns personal, as the Creel goons descend on the pawn shop. Their target? Catwoman's right-hand man, Carlos. If your opponent has better weapons than you, it makes sense to take out the supplier. Especially when you have a new enforcer coming into town to put the hammer down.

    All of the artists add some great work to the issue. The story is fast paced and filled with action. That action is captured brilliantly in the art which moves and complements the story well. Read Full Review

    If you have been following Catwoman in her Batman adventures lately, you know she is now at Bruce's side. This emotional farewell from Carlos and Selina's sister can either make this break easy or it can pull her away from Bruce. Not to mention that Raina Creel is a formidable foe now with the possession of Lazarus Water from a Lazarus Pit. Outstanding job on Catwoman #19, Ms. Jones! Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jan 8, 2020

    The art is a little strange. There are three artists working on this title so it is a tad jumbled. It only brings the issue down a little bit though. The story is very good and it shines through. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 8, 2020

    Its a promising psychological turn for the title character. Some of the art in the book is very, very good. Some moments feel very poetic. Given a more choppy narrative, the multiple artist approach could have worked. A lack of consistency, though, doesnt really set well with the overall thrust of the story.  Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Jan 8, 2020

    Catwoman #19 teases the enigma of what's to come. Creel's motives are unclear, and hard to trust. A villain keeps us on edge and is easy to fear. Only time will tell what she still has in store. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 8, 2020

    Joelle Jones has had some highlights in this run, but overall it hasn't quite lived up to the promise of her past work with a lot of fill-ins and a plot that tends to drag. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Theodis Wright Jan 9, 2020

    One continuing question I will always have as I'm assigned this title is how much juice it has left in it. Most of the Bat-books are in sync with the greater Batman Universe and specifically life post-City of Bane. At some point, Selina Kyle needs to finish her business with Villa Hermosa and come home.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 8, 2020

    While there is a huge moment in this issue and even some good, smaller ones between Carlos and Selina, this book continues to be stuck in neutral.  I really hope that we get something past the Raina Creel story and it's not just being padded out until the book ends.   Read Full Review

    This issue is clearly the middle chapter in Selina's latest exploits in Villa Hermosa " which doesn't necessarily manifest itself in the best way. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Jan 8, 2020

    Catwoman #19 shows why having a consistent art team is paramount to a successful book. With three different styles fighting against, rather than enriching, each other, Jones' script needed to provide a solid base to weather the storm. Unfortunately, Jones' script loses its grip between balancing the nuanced character work she brings to Selina and the sudden shift in stakes and tone that accompanies a zombie invasion subplot.

    It's now been 19 issues of the Creel story. Are we going to get any progression here?

    The Good:
    Nothing of note.

    The Bad:
    Wow, that was boring as hell.

    Well that was very boring. It's been 19 issues and nothing has really happened.

    Things I disliked about this issue.......

    1. The art was terrible and inconsistent. One minute Maggie's in a wheelchair and a few panels later she is just standing around with no chair in sight. The room in the store kept change looks also.

    2. There was no story progression at all. The issue was just more unneeded and useless filler. How is Creel making all these Zombies? Is she just grabbing people off the street and giving them a Laz-pit bath? Selina was bitten and didn't turn into one so that shouldn't be how more are being made. But Jones is not a good writer at all so it's a safe bet that could be how even if it doesn't make sense now.

    3. We keep getting told Creel has these big plans for the city bu more

    We don't really care about these OCs, sorry. The part with Catwoman missing rooftops is a nice subtle nod to the Tom King run though.

    Why is this series so insistent on having such a dreadful pace?
