    I really liked this issue.  Justin Gray uses the ground work of the first issue to make the reader fall in love with Catwoman and then make us all cry.  This may not have been the epic story that other Convergence tie-ins tried to tell, but it was all the better for it.  Every Catwoman fan, including those who didn't like the first issue, should give this a read.

    Overall, this is a fun issue with a sad emotional twist at the end. This emotional end, however, is well deserved and it does not feel cheap in any way. It is something that frankly would be interesting to build on, and it is unfortunate that it ends with the issue. It's a good book and one of the better Convergence issues to come out.

    There is a down-check here for an Alfred program that is clearly a rip of the MCU' Jarvis. But the emotional twist in the book's climax erases this as well as any other perception of story missteps. This is just a great example of what DC can do in a 2-part story unencumbered by the riggings of rigid continuity and heavy-handed editorial oversight. I still like my world's where everything is connected, but there is certainly room for both when they are done well in either vein. In this case, Gray, Randall, and Eltaeb nail it. Well done, gentlemen, and thank you. Read Full Review

    Enjoyable, though one character's design bothered me. Read Full Review

    So, while this is a big improvement over Convergence: Catwoman #1 and there are some excellent dramatic moments I think the plot holes keep this from being a great read. Read Full Review

    Like a few of the Convergence mini-series that didnt fully captured their era, Catwoman #2 is a good story. Im just not sure it represents the full scope of the event as it was pitched to fans. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon May 14, 2015

    The first issue of this two-parter was a fun exploration of a young Catwoman learning to be a hero for the first time. In issue two, we see her rise to heroism take the ultimate step forward, but this is accomplished without much emotional resonance to go along with it. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt May 13, 2015

    Convergence has on the whole mostly been a disappointment, and unfortunately the same mostly carries over here. The pairing of these two characters together usually results in some electricity, but here in the rushed and convoluted setup from Convergence, it is more about the crossover and less about the characters. At the same time, the fundamental attraction of the two characters to each other almost keeps this moving, but it ends up being a a bit too flawed overall. The story doesn't finish here, but rather will continue in the pages of the main Convergence title, but for the time being this two part tie-in doesn't merit the attention. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Michael Moccio May 14, 2015

    In the long run, it's Catwoman's final fate that detracts from the rest of the issue - it just didn't feel earned and seemed to serve only to increase the angst level for the Dark Knight. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald May 16, 2015

    Overall:Although it's better than last month, this issue is still far from great. At this point, I'm happy to leave this Catwoman behind, and get back to cannon. Read Full Review
