You can take Gotham out of the cat, but you can't take the cat out of Gotham. With some of Catwoman's power structures collapsed again, a clan of clowns has invaded Alleytown and Selina must use her power to handle things safely...without bringing more violence and crime into the area she loves and swears to protect. But when that fails, Selina realizes she's going to have to fight fire with fire once and for all.

    Things get a lot more complicated and even more allies and enemies are brought onto the playing field as ‘Catwoman' continues to delve deep into the character and escalate her war on the mob elements plaguing Gotham City. A handful of solid action scenes accompany a really interesting character-heavy issue that addresses a lot of what Catwoman is going through as she tries to have her foot in numerous worlds at the same time.

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Nov 16, 2022

    Catwoman #49 manages to rectify some lingering problems in the series by digging into the character's roots rather than trying to upend them. Nico Leon's pencils are back to their high quality, with a truly great opening car chase. Meanwhile, Howard delivers some of the best dialogue of the run as she tracks Selina's thoughts about Bruce and love in general across several scenes. The overarching narrative is still the weak link, but Howard demonstrates a good understanding of what makes Selina an appealing character and gives Bat/Cat fans some hope for their future.
