Catwoman and Shoes have crashed Mr. Roy’s home art gallery opening, but they aren’t there to nick a Klimt or a Monet. No, they’re after the newest addition to Mr. Roy’s esteemed collection: a large test tube containing Poison Ivy! But how did Pamela get in this predicament in the first place, what was done to her, and why does she seem...different?

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan May 20, 2021

    Again, I am not "fanboying" everything I put my hands on with DC. There are some "duds" out there among a lot of comics. Do they fall short? yes. Should you spend your money on them? That is for you to decide. But if you read my reviews to get a feel for what is going on in those comics, then your dollars finally make sense to invest in Selina's book. After watching this character grow from the 1970's, she finally has the author and artist that she has deserved for so many years! Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond May 20, 2021

    Catwoman continues to stand out at a time when the entirety of the Gotham line of books is at the top of their game, with a moody stylistic flare mixed with noir heist elements and realistic deep character-driven moments. Every single moment and panel is placed with deliberate intent that services the book's overall plots while also enhancing the overall plot that runs through the entire line of books. This creative team is hitting it out of the park over and over again, with no signs that they can or will be slowed down in any way. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz May 18, 2021

    Selinas troubles seem to just be getting started, as we see a new clandestine mastermind with his own vision of what Gotham should beespecially on the part Catwoman and her allies call home. Ram V and Fernando Blanco serve us with another chapter in the ongoing saga of Catwoman, Alleytown, and saving Ivy from the horrors shes had to endure. Its packed full of story, and continues to deliver every month. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott May 18, 2021

    Blanco uses a traditional style that is filled with detail. This is complimented by a color palate that changes with the scenes and mood shifts of the story. Bellaire's employment of red and green tones for certain scenes is eye-catching. The artwork in this issue is very transportive. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Dan Spinelli May 18, 2021

    The Gotham line of comics could not be better right now, and 'Catwoman' is a major reason why. Ram V and Fernando Blanco give each issue the right mix of character-driven story while staying close to the wider Gotham narrative. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 18, 2021

    This is the first time in a while that we've seen Selina's status quo directly affect the Bat-line, with her back in Gotham and clashing with some major villains. In only a few issues, Ram V has given her a more interesting supporting cast than we've seen in a long time, and this is another strong issue. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante May 18, 2021

    Catwoman #31 does a great job of balancing a heist plotline and the subsequent fallout, with only a few hiccups along the way. Fernando Blanco doesn't get to flex with a double page spread this month, but his work remains excellent as ever and is only further enhanced by Jordie Bellaire's tremendous colors. Along with V's consistent scripts, this is a creative team that has clearly hit its stride and I see no warning signs of that changing any time soon. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz May 19, 2021

    I am starting to really enjoy the way Ram V is writing this, and his work overall. It is a bit of a different writing style but a lot of it works. Fernando Blanco does a great job too with the art and the book looks great. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 19, 2021

    Pam's a fun emotional contrast against Selina, her emotional tenderness could create an exciting balance with Selina's shrewdly pragmatic intellect. The two make for an intriguing pair. Elsewhere the ensemble that Ram V is working with seems to lack a whole lot of interest. Still, he is only beginning to set things in motion for the current story arc, so things could get a lot more engaging as the action commences over the next few months.  Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox May 21, 2021

    Ramand the creative team deliver another strong story for this developing title. We are left with plot hooks of future foes, unseen dangers, and a rematch in the works to bring back the majority of subscribers. I wonder if we'll have Swamp Thing and Catwoman match up to save the soul of the Poinsonless Ivy? This is a solid four stars from me. Read Full Review

    There's never a dull moment, nor the time to even breathe. Catwoman #31 is the issue that shows off Selina's mastery of everything she does. By calling together her people; the dispossessed and forgotten of Gotham, her position as the greatest thief in DC Comics is unshakeable. or it was, until now… Read Full Review
