So far, Selina Kyle’s ambitious plan to gain control of Alleytown has been going purrfectly, but she’s about to run headlong into a brand-new foe-and pass right through them...? Riddle us this, Catwoman! What do the Khadym mob, a non-corporeal assassin, and Poison Ivy have in common? And when it comes to solving riddles, there’s only one person Selina can go to-no matter how much she hates the idea.

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Mar 17, 2021

    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. I continue to be a Father Valley fan, but that Wight Witch is going to be something to contend with! Add in the Riddler and Poison Ivy"this is quite the story! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 16, 2021

    This relatively new creative team has a solid idea where they want to take Catwoman and if this issue is any indication, this title will quickly earn monthly must-read status. Read Full Review

    Phenomenal storytelling, captivating art, and colors this book scratches the itch that only a few other current books (Zdarskys Daredevil) hold a candle to it. This should be on everyones pull list. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Mar 16, 2021

    The issue opens with a violent incident and a mysterious character. Later, Catwoman is approached by a past ally seeking her help. When she goes in search of a well known associate, she is met by something unexpected. Catwoman must then decide what will be her next move.The Story: There are lots of interesting things happening in this action packed issue. And I really like how Ram V is able to deliver a lot of content without the narrative feeling rushed or overwhelming. I want to know more about Catwomans interactions with each of the characters she encounters. Also, the episodes cliffhanger was very compelling, and I cant wait to find out more.Fernando Blanco uses a traditional comic book style to bring life to this story. This is enhanced by the color work of Jordie Bellaire. The action scenes are well done and engaging. I like the muted colors that were used for the night scenes. The varying use of greens was eye-catching and really drew me into the story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Mar 16, 2021

    Bits and PiecesCatwoman #29 continues the trend of portraying Catwoman with a heart of 14-carat gold. She helps but always with selfish motives, which makes you believe she can be heroic without becoming a hero. The introduction of Wight Witch is both cool and intimidating, something I wish they would learn with all the new villains in the main Batman run.  Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 16, 2021

    Ram V and Fernando Blanco return to their Catwoman run with the start of Infinite Frontier, and very little has changed. While the status quo is the same and no big story beats are playing out here, it does feel like this issue is a little bigger, a little more exciting than the arc that preceded it"mainly due to the presence of a lot of Gotham villains, both old and new.

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Mar 16, 2021

    Catwoman #29 adds a lot more moving pieces to the carefully constructed world Ram V and Fernando Blanco have created over the past four issues. Blanco's pencils and Jordie Bellaire's colors effortlessly transition between sunny poolside conversations to grimy criminal hideouts and V's script keeps a tight pace between set pieces. However, there's a lingering feeling that the book is taking a bit of a hard turn away from its simpler crime story beginnings, but only time will tell what form the book takes over the next few months.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 17, 2021

    Kyle's swift ascent into a very luxurious lifestyle in her particular corner of Gotham comes across a bit too swiftly. She's lounging on a rooftop poolalready a crime queen in Gotham, having only just arrived back a few months ago. Ram V could have spent a little bit more time charting her course to the top, but the story this issue has a lot of interesting angles that are more than satisfying as Catwoman gets pulled into a fun little mystery.  Read Full Review

    Ram V and Fernando Blanco drop us right back into the criminal action as Catwoman's list of deadly allies grows with the addition of the Wight Witch. All the right elements mix together, though hopefully the emotional stakes will rise in the next few issues. Read Full Review
