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

    Howard is moving things forward in an interesting way. Its an approach to the character that's both respectful of her past and respectful of her need to go beyond it. Shes been to so many places just in the past year. Howard lends Catwomans personality a kind of stature that seems totally cohesive with everyone shes been over the course of the past five or ten years. That being said, as bewildering as the plot might be to first-time readers, Howard tells a succinct story that feels respectively complete in its own right. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Oct 26, 2022

    ‘Catwoman' takes the international mission of the cat burglar and turns it into a rescue mission blocked by family drama and a masked criminal with a score to settle. Such a gorgeous, emotional, sexy, and fun series that keeps building upon what has come before as it takes the title character further and further while keeping her in the spotlight she deserves to be living within.

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Oct 19, 2022

    Howard's frustrating plotting and cement-block clunky characterization continues to drag this series out excruciatingly, while Nico Leon's art has improved, though doesn't make up for the writing. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Oct 18, 2022

    Catwoman #48 features yet another change of scenery that injects some life into Tini Howard's increasingly muddled narrative. Right now, reader enjoyment hinges largely on whether or not Valmont is a compelling love interest for Selina. As it stands, there's a lack of true understanding of who Valmont is as a person, existing mostly as a cliche of a "dangerous lover type. Until the series gives me a reason to truly care about Valmont and his relationship to Selina it's hard to recommend readers stick around. Read Full Review
