Selina's forced into a seriously sinister Sopranos-style sit-down! While the cops continue to hunt her for a murder she didn't commit, Catwoman's forced to take a meeting with secretive crime boss Mrs. Creel. Here's the pitch: work for us or die! Selina counters with some blackmail of her own, but the offer fails to blow away Creel and her meta-crew. That leads to a breakneck chase that drives Catwoman right into the crosshairs of the local authorities.

    While Jones's artwork doesn't disappoint and the plot device of a dead child makes for a recurring arch-villain, her sequential art is at times hard to follow along. I'm sad to say that the conclusion of Copycats is the weakest of her first arc on this book. What was billed as a big battle became something on the level of a domestic dispute. Still, her art and writing has convinced me to stick with the book because big plans are on the horizon. Read Full Review

    Jolle Jones delivers a great action-packed story in CATWOMAN #6. Jones and the colorist Laura Allred continue to prove they're a dynamic duo in art. Overall, CATWOMAN #6 delivers an interesting and involved story that leaves the reader ready for CATWOMAN #7. Read Full Review

    Even if the narrative doesn't always pack a huge punch, the final few pages, and Jones' stunning art throughout, absolutely leave you wanting more. Read Full Review

    The ending is satisfying. At the very least we feel that Selina has truly grown. The threats from within the storyline have been resolved enough not to bug us, but left open enough to potentially cause Selina trouble later. Just as when the series started, Catwoman is a free spirit once again, and anything could happen in the capable creative hands of Jones and Allred. Read Full Review

    This first arc spent a little too much time wallowing in the twisted evil of its villain, but I'm excited to see where it goes next. Read Full Review

    The story is the biggest problem again. It just seems a bit light. The rest of the elements here work well except for that. Maybe we can get a stronger writer on this. I feel like the series would vastly improve if we had one, giving us higher stakes than what is displayed here. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Daniel Clark Dec 26, 2018

    With Catwoman, Jolle Jones got her first major shot with DC to show what she can do as both an artist and writer. As this first arc concludes it may not be up to par with her independent work, however, she is bringing a style unlike another else in major comics right now. With her stepping away from art duties for the next run there is no question the book will suffer on a pure aesthetic front. Hopefully, though it will allow her to grow as a writer because if the scripts on this series strengthen it can enter into the top echelon of today's current books. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 22, 2018

    The opening storyline in Catwoman ends with more of a whimper than a bang, but it's good enough that I hope it's building to something bigger and better. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 19, 2018

    Besides the usual great art, there isn't much here to recommend.  Characters that haven't been around much or developed are showcased, but it's more confusing than it should be.  I hope the next issue rebounds from this poor end to this first arc. Read Full Review
