    Lonely City has been a great title from the first issue. There's no faltering or weak issue let alone even an underwhelming subplot. If you've missed out, it's well worth tracking down the previous two issues and seeing what the fuss is with DC's best limited series. Read Full Review

    Mature and dark, the humor is still there to see any reader through with even the smallest of funny bone's within their body, and many scenes are guaranteed to get you smiling like a cheshire cat. Certainly a trip into Chiang's "Lonely City can leave you looking like you have a cat mask on yourself, even as the tears roll. The trick to survive through Chiang's "Lonely City is like any large metropolis : when the punches come, learn to roll with them, and when the humor arises enjoy the laughs until your so punch drunk you can't differentiate pain from pleasure.

    It's been a while since Cliff Chiang's future-set Catwoman saga released an issue, and the conclusion won't be released till August. That's a common pitfall of these Black Label bookssometimes the best titles lose momentum due to lengthy delays for the top-tier art to be ready. With Chiang doing literally everything on this book, it's not a surprise he needs his timeand it's also not a surprise that it's worth the wait. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jackson Luken Jul 11, 2022

    For the most part, Catwoman: Lonely City #3 continues the excellence that the series has held up so far. It further explores Selina's personal feelings towards her relationship with others, and how much she is willing to open herself up to that sort of vulnerability. The issue hits you with emotional despair that makes the stakes feel personal and real. However, the latter half of the story struggles a bit to find ways to get the plot where it needs to be.

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 19, 2022

    Catwoman: Lonely City continues to prove great art, characters, and a singular focus by one creator can go far. This is a story that wouldn't work in canon but does so well to establish its rules and parameters it might as well be its own universe worth expanding on. Catwoman: Lonely City expands on the familiar by creating new and enticing stories well worth investing in. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Apr 20, 2022

    Catwoman: Lonely City #3 is incredibly dense with political drama, personal trauma, and the intense action of Catwoman executing her plans. There's a specific kind of vulnerability to her that's hard to find and makes for a unique reading experience. We're all so familiar with these characters that it takes an ambitious creator to tell their own kind of story and reframe them all in a whole new way. Read Full Review
