Catwoman’s attempts to keep Alleytown, and those around her, safe from collateral damage have failed. Simon Saint, the Wight Witch, Father Valley, and the Magistrate have all compromised her newly founded kingdom and brought her entire life to the brink. But despite Selina’s dreams of queenhood crashing down around her, there is still hope in the form of the Alleytown Strays. Could these children, trained by Selina, be her salvation? Or will they, too, pay for their involvement with Catwoman with their lives? And with Queen Ivy and Ivy aware of each other now, will they destroy the city or become one again?

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Nov 24, 2021

    The thing that excites me most about Catwoman #37 is its message. Selina gives the reasoning behind her well-known, headstrong determination. Hence the name of the issue, “Unafraid”. There's something so incredibly motivating about the character we've seen under it for multiple issues rise stronger, simply because that's who she is. Any fiction that can leave a message like that with me is something I'll always hold dear. Read Full Review

    Ram V provides closure for this chapter of Catwoman in this issue. Whatever the future holds, she is a changed person after a series of confronting new enemies, protecting her friends and bring some closure to her dealings with the Riddler and Penguin. I am unsure of Ram V's role in future Catwoman issues as he is writing so many storylines lately. However, if he is moving on, you would be well served to pick up all the past issues he has had his fingers on! Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Nov 29, 2021

    The battle for Alleytown has come to an end, and Catwoman stands triumphant in the conclusion of the book's final story arc leading into this creative team's big final issue. All the emotional and character depth as well as the fun that has resonated through every fiber of this run is on full display here as a reminder of just how great this book has been.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Nov 23, 2021

    This good-looking issue features a classic comic book styling reminiscent of newsprint. The action scenes are interesting and the attention to detail is emotionally engaging. Also, there are some especially eye-catching panels in this edition that I found breath taking. Read Full Review

    Before this run on Catwoman comes to a close, it's clear that it is absolutely going out in style. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 23, 2021

    Tying in with an event is always tricky, especially when it's a title's last arc, but I think V got all the big things right here. The last few pages were genuinely emotional and set up a lot of great elements that I hope the next writer builds on. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Nov 23, 2021

    When all is said and done, Catwoman #37 delivers another solid entry to Selina's story. It will be interesting to see where the story goes next, as the plot directions that can follow from here feel wide open. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 23, 2021

    Despite many obstacles, Ram V does a good job of giving readers a decent Fear State tie-in, but more importantly, a good Catwoman issue. It's a shame that his run is ending soon, but at least he is making the best of an odd situation as it comes to a close. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Nov 23, 2021

    Catwoman #37 is a must-read for any reader of the regular series as it wraps up its Fear State arc, but also sets the stage for a final goodbye to Selina's time in Alleytown. There's a sense of finality in this issue, but V and Blanco have one more issue together before its time to fully say farewell. Fans of Fear State and the Catwoman series will both be equally satisfied by what's on display here. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 23, 2021

    Ram V made the best with the Fear State tie-ins, but Catwoman will likely be solidly back on track now he can focus on his own stories. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Nov 29, 2021

    Catwoman #37 concludes a strong tie-in story that complimented Fear State extremely well. The journey that Catwoman and her crew went on put over how big of a threat the Magistrate became before their downfall. The ending of this story also sets up Catwoman to continue to be a major player in Gotham City. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 24, 2021

    The best issues in a massive crossover event hold their own weight as distinctive chapters. The latest issue of Catwoman lacks the kind of finesse that would make it terribly intelligible outside of the clash of events of the rest of the crossover. Even in context, there seem to be too many gaps in the course of events in the chapter to feel like anything other than a reasonably pleasant mess. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Nov 26, 2021

    I am going to stick around for the new creative team, due in a couple of issues (#39), though if truth be told, I wasn't that impressed with Tini Howards Excalibur book, so I guess time will tell. For Ram V, with news that he's leaving both Justice League Dark and Swap Thing, I hope he gets the opportunity to get more meta-textual, akin to These Savage Shores, soon. Read Full Review
