Apparently taking down the mob, straightening out some crooked cops, and gaining control of Alleytown is not enough for Selina. She’s also taken it upon herself to make sure the streets of her newly adopted home are safe for the group of stray kids she’s taken under her wing-and she’s going to do it by teaching them to steal the streets back for themselves! Introducing: Catwoman and the Strays!

    Ram V keeps delivering with a solid story line. Blanco and Eco Plascencia are painting a world that is every bit as dark as the villains it holds. But that purple haze is Catwoman setting things right. Father Valley continues to lurk"He's a bad man! Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Dec 16, 2020

    All in all, Catwoman #28 was an exciting introduction of Catwoman and the Strays. There's nothing like that well-executed issue which reminds you that Catwoman will always be the wrong one to cross. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Keigen Rea Dec 15, 2020

    The conclusion to this opening arc is good, if a bit overstuffed. The promise the last page makes is more than enough for me, though, and I'm excited for more! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Dec 15, 2020

    Catwoman #28 is another home run for this creative team. V's script manages to make high stakes drug dealing feel like a fun romp, without losing any bit of its edge. Fernando Blanco's art doesn't miss a beat either, making each action sequence truly stunning while also giving the quieter scenes a great level of detail and texture. I'm eager to see how V moves the series forward and he's given himself multiple avenues to go down, all of which feel equally exciting. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Theodis Wright Dec 16, 2020

    Ram V and team continue to impress and breathe some life into a once-dying title. We have two months of Future State (also written by Ram V) coming up next. However, considering that final panel, I am so ready for the return to Alleytown. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Dec 15, 2020

    When you get right down to it, Catwoman #28 is a solid entry into the series. While it didnt offer that big eye-catching energy that has been the hallmark of the last couple of issues, it nonetheless delivers another enjoyable story that highlights Selina Kyle at the top of her game.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cat Wyatt Dec 15, 2020

    Catwoman #28 is bold and fierce, reminding readers that Catwoman is far from being out of the game, despite what some of her enemies might like to think. It's full of action, and the brilliant artwork supports all of it. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Dec 19, 2020

    My two favourite characters in the arc meet face to face in the dramatic conclusion of this issue. Cryptic threats meet the strongest, cat-like indifference. It's so true to their forms and it puts an unexpected dynamic in the mix, making me all the more eager to read on. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 15, 2020

    Catwoman #28 is an odd issue that feels forced to finish the current arc and make way for Future State while setting up a possible new story coming after that in March.  It wasn't a satisfying ending to Ram V's first arc, but it wasn't horrible either.  I hope Ram V continues in March because I like his Catwoman and want to see what he can do given the proper time.

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

    Ram Vs style and form have faltered a bit as his run on the series has continued. Bits of the story may seem remarkably silly. Hes got a firm hold on Selinas style and strength. If he can continue to keep his distance from all the weird periphery that hes been engaging in and embrace some of the oppressively inky visual poetry of the artist hes working with. In that case, this series could really take off. For now, though, it feels a bit muddled. Read Full Review

    Fernando Blanco's art is a stylish, high-energy complement to it all, making a quasi-finale an intriguing stepping stone for Catwoman as a title. Read Full Review
