With Batman out of the picture, Catwoman would be wise to remember that there are more than bats in Gotham's belfries. Speaking of bats, Onyx returns to her home city to bat cleanup and make sure Catwoman's not letting any strays into her city...and with no big Bat in the shadows, those pesky no-killing rules are off the table. Let's see if Catwoman and Onyx can agree on a target...

    Gotham continues to be a place that is odd to predict. From Valmont (who again looks like a Ghost Hunter rip off) to Onyx Adams (I am just getting acquainted with this new/old presence in Gotham) to Flamingoa cannibal that eats victims??? I would sure hate to be Gotham's tourism director. I'm in on Howard's run as she is setting the stage for somethingwhat? I cannot pick up the clues yet. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Mar 18, 2022

    Tini Howard in the last 3 issues has expertly displayed how a piece of an individual's identity can complicate a whole system amongst the human terrain. Finally, DC comics has a winner after for so long has been trying to unlock in its push for inclusivity. We now have a LGBTQ related story, that's not just about identity diversity! Read Full Review

    An old friend returns after a long time away, as Selina Kyle's world continues to get deadlier when Black Mask and the crime families make their next move. Catwoman's new creative team continues to create one of the most beautiful, fun, and unique books around keeping the series at the top as one of the best books DC Comics is publishing.

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Mar 15, 2022

    If you're still reeling from Zo Kravitz's stellar performance as Catwoman, this series by Tini Howard and Nico Leon is a perfect entryway into the comic version of the character. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 15, 2022

    Catwoman #41 is another special issue from Tini Howard and Nico Leon.  Howard is working a bunch of different angles here, and they come together nicely in this issue which also looks spectacular.  Highly Recommended! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 15, 2022

    I was a little critical of this run right at the start for jettisoning the entire supporting cast Ram V and Joelle Jones set up in the previous runs, but Howard is slowly coming into her own. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Mar 16, 2022

    Catwoman #41 is a great continuation of a story that further separates her from Batman, as she fully takes on the anti-hero role, using brutal efficiency and using methods Batman would never use to rid Gotham of the crime lords. It's a side of Catwoman I hope we get to see for a long time. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 16, 2022

    It may lack some of the stylish punch of the preceding issue, but Catwoman #41 Continues to show Howards unique perspective on the character, which continues to be really appealing. The story in question isnt altogether different from many other Catwoman stories that have made it to the page over recent years. However, the author is working with familiar details in a way that makes them feel unique and fresh. Its a whole new perspective on the classic. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Mar 16, 2022

    It's incredibly hard to tell moral stories like these without coming over all heavy-handed or preachy, particularly in another male-dominated environment that's only starting to become sympathetic now to the appearance of LGBTQ+ people and women in their community. It takes a well-handled story by a strong creative team to tell something like this, and tell it well. Read Full Review

    This is easily the Catwoman issue that best showcases the potential of the series as a whole, and I love it. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Mar 15, 2022

    Catwoman #41 solidifies my hope for Tini Howard's and Nico Leon's run on the character. While their first issue together had some growing pains, Howard has a unique voice for Selina that feels true to the character, while managing a growing cast of supporting characters to great effect. The storyline doesn't do much to differentiate itself from other runs, but Selina's unrelenting nature to protect those in need gives the book an emotional core to drive the story through. For those still around, next month's issue is poised to bring this opening arc to a strong conclusion. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 15, 2022

    Catwoman #41 has good pieces, but the puzzle doesn't quite come together. The problem starts with the frenetic start/stop scenes, the lack of closure in conversations, and the somewhat jarring digital art mixing in with more conventional-looking pieces. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Mar 16, 2022

    Howard and Leon continue to provide an occasionally competent but still very frustrating depiction of a Catwoman who we are assured is "focused" but continually demonstrates her lack of focus in the multiple failures she racks up. Read Full Review
