    This engrossing issue has gotten me even more excited for the rest of this arc and for whatever's in store for Catwoman beyond that. Read Full Review

    This is easily the best comic I've read from Tini Howard's pen. It has a bit more to say about the character than I've come to expect and makes excellent use of this arc's concept. Small issues aside, I will happily recommend this comic. Going forward, all I can say is, I hope Howard keeps it up! This may be Stefano Raffaele's final issue on this title but that doesn't have to mean the stories have to suffer. I have high hopes for the rest of this arc! Read Full Review

    This issue is rather brutal and hard to read in places, but has a very unexpected guest appearance in the last pages that brings things together in a surprisingly powerful way. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Sebastien Cabrera Jan 17, 2024

    Between Tini Howard's writing and Stefano Raffaele's art, Catwoman is made out to be an intriguing character without being defined by or a thorn in Batman's side. If there's been any issue as of recent which has shown that, it's number 61. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jaymee Remolde Jan 18, 2024

    Catwoman #61 just appears to be a chance for the artist to draw mutated characters, offering no real reason for Catwoman to steal the item she's after beyond it just being pretty. Catwoman is a better character than this. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Jan 16, 2024

    Catwoman #61 delights us all but also leaves us wondering and worrying about Catwoman's well-being. Just because she's functionally immortal that doesn't mean she should be so cavalier. This does however give us a great deal of interesting drama wrapped up in unknowable magic that leaves us readers clamouring for answers. Read Full Review

    This is easily one of the best arcs by Tini. There were some cheesy moments, as stated by another user, but the story and plot is finally cohesive. Well done.

    I've yet to read much of Tini Howard's Catwoman, but I'm trying to keep an open mind about the comics I read (although her Harley Quinn comics are about the worst books I've read in a while).

    Selina starts the issue off feeling stronger than ever and revitalized, ready to take on challenges since she is getting cocky about having ever lives, literally. She can die and come back to life a limited number of times. So what does she do? She wants to steal one of the most danagerous elements ever created by mankind, Corium!

    The comic is beautifully penciled, narration seems on point. I can even forgive the usual feminist slant that Howard has in her writing as the ending of the issue was heartwarming, and I even had a sense more

    Not for me. I’m glad others seem to be enjoying it though.

    Ugh. Seeing Eiko and Daario again was a downer, hearing "mama cat" and all the other cheesy lines again was a downer, the surprise guest appearance at the end was a downer.
