    Not even bars can keep Selina Kyle down, as ‘Catwoman' enters a whole new phase for the title character and her supporting cast putting them in a whole new dynamic. No matter the setting the series keeps its character-focused head up and presents a colorful gorgeous fun time that speaks to so many things. Read Full Review

    Howard's run seems to be returning Selina firmly into the role of an antihero instead of a hero, and this issue is a good step towards cementing her as Gotham's queenpin again. Read Full Review

    Catwoman #51 gives us the start of a jailbird story we can expect following those last few events. A new arc gives us new opportunities, and we can only imagine what will happen to Selina next. Read Full Review

    I'm still excited to see what the future holds for this Catwoman run, but I'm not being captivated in the immediate. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 25, 2023

    With the initial set-up out of the way, Howard and Basri could easily develop into something more sophisticated in future issues. Having hit rock bottom, Kyle has a long way to go before she can really get a handle on where her life is going. Its an opportunity for Howard to define Catwoman from the ground up if shes willing to try. It may be a fairly shaky start, but theres no question that things could go in a fascinating direction in the issues to come.   Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Jan 25, 2023

    After an incoherent but at least action-packed and eventful fiftieth issue, Tini Howard, joined by excellent guest artist Sami Basri, turns in a "first day back in prison" issue that takes a nap on a bed of cliches and implausibilities. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Jan 24, 2023

    Catwoman #51 delivers a routine prison oriented story with no surprises and more than a few questionable choices. If you're in the mood to watch Selina sleepwalk her way to stealing commissary snacks, then this issue delivers the goods. For almost everyone else, the series makes no forward strides in bringing in new readers and offers little for longtime fans to look forward to. Read Full Review
