Ever seen those hot-pink vans stationed around town advertising sexy maids who'll come clean your house? Little did you know those sexy maids are actually part of a secret underground sting operation that only Catwoman can claw her way through to find the artifact they've stolen. It's leather versus lingerie in this epic cat chase!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 12, 2020

    Once again, a Catwoman story by a guest writer feels a bit more fresh. It can be challenging to find the right momentum for a character who works so well in moments like this where she can strike quickly and slink back into the shadows after the close of the last panel. Sevenbergen and Aneke give a fun enough adventure here that they inadvertently pull some of the appeal away from the momentum of the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    These "maids" are no match for Selina. Who really is on this level? I mean, she's ran with the Joker and Penguin. She needs a Rogues Gallery and soon. But in the meantime, she needed to get a breath of air in this story to set up what we hope will be an intriguing storyline. Read Full Review

    An enjoyable, one-shot story that was action-packed with moments of heart. Read Full Review

    This is Catwoman’s week! Issue #22 of Catwoman makes for a great compliment to the Anniversary Special and is a fine interlude before Selina’s homecoming. And I’m not kitten ya! Read Full Review

    Characters like Catwoman and Batman are strong in our hearts because they're complex and compelling. Catwoman #22 proves that very well, possibly without meaning to. On a lighter note, we can expect Catwoman to get up to just about anything in future. This issue is the start of a real exploration for Selina Kyle. Read Full Review

    Overall, this could have been a great standalone issue, but it ended up just being a good one. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 2, 2020

    This one and done story from Selina's recent past looks great but doesn't have enough substance to make it a must buy.  If you need a Catwoman book and the 80th Anniversary isn't quite enough, go for it.  I suggest waiting until next month to jump back into this series. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Jun 2, 2020

    Catwoman #22 is a fun, if almost immediately forgettable jaunt that relies on titillating art and a simplistic narrative to carry your attention. It's always fun to get a one-shot tale of Selina performing a heist or stopping some sort of wrong, but the moral vagueness here never adds up to anything compelling. This has all been done before, but watching Catwoman battle skimpily dressed maids will find a willing audience due to the sheer kitsch of it all. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 9, 2020

    It's an okay done-in-one issue with an interesting conflict for Catwoman, but the dialogue fell flat for me repeatedly, and one important plot point took three reads before it was clear" Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Jun 4, 2020

    A forgettable story with decent art that manages to avoid anything of real substance or get much fun out of a Catwoman fights sexy maids concept. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jun 4, 2020

    The art by Aneke is the best part by far. If only there was a better story to utilize it. Like I said in the beginning, this is a pretty obvious fill in. I just wish the writer had something better than this. Read Full Review
