    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 11, 2020

    Catwoman edges towards her 80th-anniversary celebration next month with an issue that feels like one of the better single issues in her long and winding history. The character still has a great deal of life in her. Jones has proven that shes not tied to any one city. From here, she can really go anywhere she wants and still be interesting to give the right treatment. Occasional faltering aside, Jones has done a very good job with the overall flow of the better part of the first couple of years of this series. Read Full Review

    Joelle Jones has absolutely left her mark on Selina across this run thus far, and here's hoping it's far from the last time she'll be tied to the character. Read Full Review

    The arc concludes exactly the way it should, with a beautiful image of our heroes riding off into the sunset. It falls into the old conventions of a western, which is not what I'd expect from this title. At the same time, we have all the stuff on Catwoman's mind, now being on ours. Catwoman #21 fills us with the questions and doubts she has in herself. This ending also leaves the path open, and this reader excited for the character's boundless potential. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Carlos R. Mar 11, 2020

    Catwoman #21 makes for a fitting conclusion to this chapter of Selina’s life in Villa Hermosa. Joëlle Jones continues to deliver a solid Catwoman series and though Selina may be up against a zombie horde, Fernando Blanco and FCO Plascencia make certain your eyes stay glued to each page.

    Joelle Jones concludes her run on Catwoman this week with Catwoman #21. The title will be playing host to anthology stories over the next few months " and while the final issue has all the problems of the series-long plot that's been dominating, it also has some really great moments that speak to Selina's character and some brilliant art by Fernando Blanco.

    Raina Creel"no spoilers here, but this is the type of villain that Selina needs to have going against her. Jolle Jones has found her book and I would love to find her influence in other story lines that are predominately female protagonist driven (hint, hint"Zatanna".Jessica Cruz".Power Girl" the list can go on and on.)

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Mar 15, 2020

    Joelle Jones wrapped up her run on Catwoman that leaves a strong mark on Selina Kyle's history. The war between Catwoman and Raina Creel ended in a way that left Selina a stronger character than when this series started. The ending creates plenty of opportunity for the next creative team to use what Jones built as a strong foundation for Catwoman's future. Read Full Review

    Catwoman #21 is a strong artistic showcase for Fernando Blanco and FCO Plascencia that serves as an adequate conclusion for Jones' Creel storyline. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 11, 2020

    Joelle Jones finishes her run on Catwoman, and those readers who stuck with it will get some big moments that, while forced, still were satisfying enough.  Despite having her hands tied a bit with the circumstances leading into this run, I liked some of the things we got, it just took way to long to get them before time ran out.  Oh well, the reset button is hit and let's just hope things get better from here.

    The ending of this story arc was in par with the entire arc. In other words not that good. The story and the characters just sucked. I'm so glad this ends Jones's run on the comic. Now maybe we can get some good stories told. I hope so anyway.

    That being said there was some good parts to this comic.....

    1. I loved the blue flashback art. It was masterfully done. That alone got it the 6.5 rating
    2. Loved that Selina's sister has woken up so to speak.
    3. It's finally over yay!!!

    Didn't like......

    1. All the unanswered questions.
    2. The new question it ended on. Didn't Creel add something to that jar that had the Lazarus water in it to make here zombies in like last issue or the more

    We finally get an ending to the Creel story with Selina making reparations to her relationships with Carlos and Aunt Linda. Selina running away with her sister who can now finally talk, a perfect score. However, the art was decent for the most part, would've been better with Jones' style, for that it lost a few points.

    7.5/10 -Red Hood

    The zombies were pointless and tired. A decent closure to the series.

    Jones' Catwoman has been struggling big time and it looks like it has reached its endpoint. Let's see how it fares.

    The Good:

    The Bad:
    Way too fast.

    It's boring.

    If your 21 issue run works so much better with only the first 6 issues, you might need to check your story.

    The art is fine I guess. This just outstayed its welcome and sits as wasted potential.
