A tie-in to “The Joker War”! Catwoman returns to Gotham City to get even with the people who stole her plans and used them against Batman…and if you’re the Riddler or the Penguin, you better watch your back, because Catwoman is coming to claim what she deserves…and that’s everything! Plus, two bonus tales: One a story about Catwoman going back to her home turf of Alleytown to start her empire, and another about a cat trying to intervene in a conflict of cat versus woman!

    She's corrected a major wrong in her relationship with Bruce. They are so intertwined, but she deserves her own adventures as well. Personally, I don't like these other guys hanging around her, but it is a comic soap opera at times. Add this issue to your collection in the Joker War! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 16, 2020

    Catwomans recent adventures have been amplifying her loner status. With this chapter, shes clearly ready to get back into a more social mood. Her new role as thief guru allows Ram V the opportunity to show Kyle from a distinctly different angle. Between enemies on both sides of the law and allies, she will be trying to train, Ram V has a wide range of different elements to work with in coming issues.  Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Sep 15, 2020

    When all is said and done Catwoman #25exceeded all my expectations. It took what couldve been just another heist and makes it a bit more memorable. Given the number of heists readers have seen Selina make, this is sure to be an appreciated thing. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 15, 2020

    Catwoman #25 is a worthy milestone issue for the series, playing into current events and building up new plots for future use. There's a genius move to increase the supporting cast while reminding us Catwoman is strong for her spirit. An important detail. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 15, 2020

    Ram V's first regular issue of Catwoman is a pleasant surprise, as free of the status quo of Joelle Jones' run he's able to craft one of the most unique and likable takes on the queen cat of Gotham since Genvieve Valentine's run. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ethan Coney Sep 17, 2020

    I didn't realize coming into this title how much I'd enjoy it. The book oozes style from the first page. Its a special team of artists here in one special to have every page achieve the status of a page-turner if somehow the exceptional direction of Ram V's opening story alone isn't enough to lure new and current followers of this series.

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Sep 15, 2020

    Catwoman #25 marks the first time I've truly been excited for a run in a while. Writer Ram V has already established himself as a solid Catwoman writer with a few fill in issues, but I can't wait to see how he handles a longer run with Selina. Main artist Fernando Blanco ups his game considerably, even beyond his normally great art, and V's script keeps the pace light and fun without losing sight of Selina's more complex inner self. With two equally entertaining short stories as a bonus, Catwoman #25 is a must read for any fan of the character. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 14, 2020

    Ram V starts off his Catwoman run with a bit of a one-person/three artist anthology issue that has a lot going on.  He already proved himself while filling in for Joelle Jones on the previous run, and I am looking forward to what he has in store from here on out. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 24, 2020

    Sadly, none of the three stories here offer the costume we saw Catwoman don in the previous two issues of the series. Instead, Selina is back to more modern take on her costume in a series of stories that entertains but doesn't offer more than momentary distraction. Read Full Review
