The Riddler revealed that he knows details about Poison Ivy’s whereabouts. Now, after the Riddler has been gravely wounded, Catwoman brings him to be patched up by Alleytown’s less-than-scrupulous medics. Now on the mend, Riddler points Selina in Ivy’s direction-but is he telling the truth, or wrapping her up in another one of his riddles? Meanwhile, the Penguin’s come to realize that enlisting Father Valley to take out Catwoman may have been a mistake and finds himself asking whether he hired a hit man...or inked a deal with the devil himself.

    Ram V keeps delivering with a solid story line. Blanco and Bellaire 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 let us not forget that Poison Ivy is somewhere in this mix! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Apr 20, 2021

    Blanco's retro drawing style is complimented by the color work of Jordie Ballaire. The blue toned panels beautifully portray nighttime in Gotham City. It also makes it especially powerful when bold green is used to highlight scenes indicating a certain someone. The artwork in this issue is both lovely and transportive. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 20, 2021

    Ram V continues writing a street-level Catwoman, and he doesn't rely on silly tricks or swerves to make her great.  She is at her best hovering between good and bad, and Ram V lets her hang out in that grey area with style.  Recommended. Read Full Review

    While this issue is definitely a bit moodier than the previous installments in its arc, that all culminates in a way that is electrifying and incredibly gratifying. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 21, 2021

    With Catwoman stumbling through action as quickly as she is, she isnt allowed a whole lot of time to establish a firm grounding. Shes clearly in charge here, but there isnt enough stable ground in her life to keep all of the crazy action in perspective. She goes from a warehouse hospital to a shady place elsewhere in Gotham before heading off to an extravagantly sinister get-together for Gothams wealthiest sociopaths. Any one of those places would seem a lot more interesting if she could settle into place for a few panels. Read Full Review
