Raina Creel's thugs are making a move on the pawn shop where Catwoman has set up headquarters, and if Selina can't stop them, it could cost the lives of the allies she has working there. Luckily, none of them will go down without a fight; unluckily, Raina's biggest bad may have more fight than any of them can handle.

    Joelle Jones has written a really excellent storyline over many issues. Reading this particular issue, I can now see she had been planting seeds this whole time during her run. All her work is paying off and I can't wait to see how it ends!! Read Full Review

    This issue is everything that a Catwoman installment should be"emotional, self-aware, action-packed, and a little terrifying. Read Full Review

    To see how Raina Creel has evolved into a very important player in the Batman Family landscape, you'll need to pick up several past issues of Catwoman. But to truly appreciate the writing of Jolle Jones you need to grab every issue you can of Catwoman. Besides, we all love Alfred and the few pages he is remembered is worth the purchase!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 19, 2020

    As entertaining as it is, there isnt a whole lot of story this issue. The simple plot structure keeps the story firmly grounded in action heroism that maintains an even flow of action from beginning to end. The ending of this issue is suitably dramatic, but it sets up a bit of a challenge for the next installment what with it being the case the final showdown between Catwoman and Creel does appear to be starting on the very first panel of issue 21. An issue-length physical conflict is unlikely. Itll be interesting to see how Kyle and Blanco wrap-up this part of Catwomans life in March.  Read Full Review

    Joelle Jones is wrapping her run on Catwoman in the coming months, so it's no surprise she's building up to a big finale in Catwoman #20. The problem is, I don't think the big finale it's building towards really fits the tone of the run or Selina's character. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 18, 2020

    Catwoman #20 does about everything right to build excitement for the conclusion of Joelle Jones run on this series. Jones has crafted a compelling narrative around this conflict between Catwoman and Raina Creel. Hopefully Jones can end her Catwoman run on high note in the next issue. Read Full Review

    A solid issue that leads the reader into what should be the finale for this story arc in the following issue. Read Full Review

    Catwoman #20 does its best to entertain as a horror tinged pulp adventure, but struggles to reconcile itself with the strong characterization from the series' earlier arcs. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 12, 2020

    This Catwoman series has struggled to pick up any momentum for a while now and tries to make up for it with a forced and hurried penultimate issue to the Raina Creel story.  Without proper setup, the plot twists and turns, and it winds up being a confusing mess by the time the cliffhanger arrives.  I will be back next month to finish out the story, but I am not looking forward to it.

    Prelude:
    Catwoman has been stalling for quite some time. Let's see how this issue fares.

    The Good:
    Nothing.

    The Bad:
    I don't like Blanco's art.

    Let's throw away the new suit just as we get it! Sure, why not.

    Conclusion:
    The story exists and quite frankly, I just don't care.

    The art in this Series has been really great but the story hasn’t met that standard. Hopefully the conclusion next month makes it worth it.

    Did Catwoman need a zombie outbreak yarn? No, not really.

    I for one am so ready for this story to be over and for Jones's run on the series to end already!!! It has been torture to read since the first issue. NONE of the side characters are interesting. The writer managed to make Catwoman boring!. Which is just mind boggling. Catwoman is an amazing, fun, vibrant exciting character. She's funny, strong, smart and so much more. Yet from the first issue Jones has made Catwoman/Selina boring, whiny at times with all her self doubting, unlikable, unreliable and even unfeeling. It was only when another writer stepped in did Selina even show how much she was still grieving having left Batman/Bruce. Plus she's basically tossed Maggie to the side and has forgotten about her most of the time. Where is Seli more
