Things start to heat up between Valmont and Catwoman when the handsome devil in white shows Catwoman a grand gesture by taking her on a trip out of Gotham. How many high-roller cities can these two cat burglars hit for a score in one night? A crow in white and a bat in black-if only there was a moral gray zone for this one cat.

    Final ThoughtsCatwoman #47 continues Selinas vendetta against the Ibanescu crime family, taking her to Europe and amping up the scale of the story. It moves at a furious pace until finishing with a great cliffhanger ending. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Sep 28, 2022

    No matter where the action is, ‘Catwoman' continues to focus heavily on the characters and the world that it has created, advancing the story in both smaller and bigger ways at the same time. A new artistic vision adds to the beauty and power that this series has displayed month after month, keeping a similar energy running no matter which people are handling the various artistic elements.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 21, 2022

    From so many angles in so many ways over the course of the past few years, creative teams working with Catwoman have gotten her moving in the right direction, but its always been a bit of a problem wrapping things up in a way that feels fluid. It seems as though Howards got a solid handle on things, though. Howard continues to manage a well-modulated run with Selina as she saunters gracefully through this latest phase of her life. The international adventure should add another layer of intrigue to her. The challenge will be allowing Catwoman to land on her feet on the other end of it all in a way that allows for both a sense of greater stability AND further challenges in future issues of the series.  Read Full Review

    It's a fun run overall, but I'm not quite sure who I'm supposed to be invested in long-term. Read Full Review

    While parts of this issue just feel like fodder for the bigger story that's on the horizon, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Sep 21, 2022

    Tini Howard continues to write Selina driven by emotion over any thought, leaving others to be bothmore competent and suffer the consequences. Despite this emotion driving, the "romance between Valmont and Selina is beyond unconvincing (sold much more by the cover than anything inside the book), and the fill-in art is very unsatisfying.

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Sep 20, 2022

    Catwoman #47 has a lot of good pieces that don't quite add up for a compelling read. Tini Howard's characterization of Selina is increasingly frustrating due her tendencies of self righteousness that don't always fit the scenes they're in. I've been supportive of Howard's overarching theme of Selina's quest to redeem the mistreated women of Gotham's underworld, but the bluntness of the plotting has become a problem. Caitlin Yarsky is now on a list of artists to look out for with fantastic character designs and thoughtful world building, but a nice looking book cannot fully save a series with an identity crisis.
