Who is Selina Kyle? That’s the question that Father Valley has taken to the streets to find out. From her humble beginnings as an Alleytown kid to her greatest heists as Catwoman, all will be revealed. Because when Father Valley asks a question, it’s best to answer...but when he’s already quoting verses, pray that it’s not already too late for you. Proverbs, 25:2.

    Father Valley has been the surprise of the past few years. Sure, the early incarnations of The Batman Who Laughs, Robin King and The Grim Knight were great. But this guy"he's on another level. Ram V obviously is a Stephen King fan as Father Valley is straight inspired from some of King's works. Buy this book for the cover alone, but buy this series! It's great! Read Full Review

    This might be the perfect jumping-on point for an already-stellar Catwoman run, and I can't wait to see where things go next. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jun 22, 2021

    Catwoman #32 achieves the perfect fusion of a stand-alone/new reader-friendly type issue that also is firmly entrenched within and furthers the ongoing plot of this stellar must-read series. Not a single artistic beat is missed with a guest artist as the neo-noirish style continues and presents the reader with a variety of similar but very differently depicted vignettes set to answer the overall question posed by the issue's very title. Selina Kyle is a force of nature and this series continues to rocket her to the levels she deserves to be at within the echelon of DC Comics characters. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Jun 15, 2021

    Catwoman #32 is a bold chapter in the series as it slows down the narrative pacing in favor of developing Selina and its supporting cast. Evan Cagle's art is more than welcome in the series, (which is no slight against the also extraordinarily talented Fernando Blanco) and pairs extremely well with Jordie Bellaire's diverse color choices. There's nothing I didn't like in Catwoman #32 and any complaint about the structure or lack of forward progress lies more so with reader taste than with execution from the creative team.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 16, 2021

    Fernando Blanco returns as artist next month. For one, brief moment, the art and story of Ram Vs run with Catwoman feels absolutely exquisite. Blanco does an excellent job with the character in his own style, but a glimpse at something as dynamic as issue #32 is bound to give the overall flow of action in the ongoing serial a bit of an awkward bump.  Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jun 15, 2021

    Evan Cagle uses a traditional style that is heavy on character expression and form. These detailed drawings are enhanced by Bellaire's use of color palates that change with the tone and setting of the story. This is a well crafted issue that is both engaging and visually pleasing.

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jun 15, 2021

    Catwoman #32 delivers another well-paced tale that builds out its lead while also ratcheting up the intensity of the ongoing situation. Read Full Review

    It's an odd issue, but one that feels like it'll be important to the character's status quo later on as all these subplots converge. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a solid enough comic that could have been better with some stronger art. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Jun 17, 2021

    For an issue about Catwoman, this actually works well, but I think we can only do it from time to time. The next issue should therefore be the grand battle we've been circling for the past few issues. V and Cagle are a formidle creative team. I've marked it down slightly as it's a very hard issue for casual readers to pick up and understand. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Jun 18, 2021

    We can hope that Selina's found somewhere to regroup, but this issue largely tells us things we already knew about the character, or gives context about what to expect in later installments. There hasn't been much action or progression here, though, but that does mean that the title still has more highs to reach. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Jun 15, 2021

    Ram V and guest artist Evan Cagle provide a powerful interlude issue of Catwoman, giving us exciting and moving flashbacks of Selina's history through the voices of her closest allies and family, while setting up for the brutal confrontation between Father Valley and Catwoman. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jun 15, 2021

    Catwoman has been at such a high level that this cool down issue was disappointing. This is likely just a minor detour as Ram V has delivered some compelling Catwoman stories with enough frequency that he's earned the benefit of the doubt. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 15, 2021

    This is the worst kind of issue of any that a reader can skip entirely without any consequence.  We hear some stories of Selina's past to let us know she is a badass, but the way Ram V gets to them is a joke.  I have enjoyed this Catwoman series more and more each month, but this one is a stinker.  Save yourself the time and money and just come back next month, where hopefully we get back to some story progression.
