    I know theres so much the company can do with these DC Comics and Warner Bros. Looney Tunes crossovers, but I truly love them. Theyre fun and have something for the current comic book reader and the ones just discovering this fantastical world. I recommend reading all the pairings in this awesomely animated universe.

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Aug 29, 2018

    Black Canary is in this book too and the story and art are amazing. This is easily the best of the DC Comics/Looney Tunes crossovers to date and a must read for anyone who likes both. Even the back-up story, rendered in a traditional Looney Tunes house-style, is a hoot! Read Full Review

    Sirens of Sequentials - Katie Spencer Dec 26, 2018

    If you're looking for something fun and silly to read, this book and the rest of the DC Meets Looney Tunes line are highly recommended. It's a crossover that really shouldn't work but absolutely does on so many levels. Read Full Review

    That's Entertainment - Capt. Nostalgia Aug 29, 2018

    Overall, Catwoman Tweety & Sylvester #1 is one of the best books set in the crossover canon. Gail Simone leads the charge with skillful writing that few can match. The colors of La Cruz make the book pop and leave an impression that stays with you. Not to mention married together with Miranda's art. I can't recommend this book enough. Go out to your local shops and buy, buy, buy! Read Full Review

    GWW - Elizabeth Garcia Aug 29, 2018

    Overall, this comic is a fun one-shot and breaks up the usually darker tone comics sometimes take. If you enjoy Looney Toons I recommend this book but also if you have an affinity for Simone's writing, particularly on Birds of Prey, I highly recommend this book. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 29, 2018

    While there's no megawatt display of brilliance like there was on last year's Noir-accented Batman/Elmer Fudd, this is the one-shot that best embraces the chaotic combination of DC superheroes and Looney Tunes absurdity " and most of that is down to Gail Simone, who brings in many of her old favorite characters for the epic battle between cats and birds.

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Aug 30, 2018

    The artwork in both tales was fun. I did prefer the cartoony rendition because it was less constrained by logic. It was filled with cartoon chaos! Im not a fan of the dark shade the colourist puts in Black Canarys face to suggest a mask. It looks weird at best and is a distraction. The fight between Catwoman and Black Canary is fun and the comedic timing of Sylvester and Tweety just right. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Adam Barnhardt Aug 29, 2018

    When a property like this fully realizes what it is and embraces it, that's when the results are best and Simone and company fully embraced this bizarre crossover and made one hell of an intriguing read. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Sep 6, 2018

    The battles heroes and villains get themselves into are grand, and hold the fate of the universe in the balance. We root for them, and hope that reality doesn't crumble around them. It can all get very serious. So, if a talking cat or canary tell you they'vethe fate of cat and bird kind is at stake, it still counts as a grand battle, but just light enough to help fans like us breathe between apocalypses.

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Sep 1, 2018

    Both stories are pretty great! And while the reader may be expecting just the pairing (or "trioing") of Catwoman, Tweety and Sylvester, you actually get many more heroes and villains for your venture into this book. Cheetah attacking Hawkman is poster worthy for any wall! Read Full Review

    The second story has Catwoman going into the Looney Tunes universe. It's rather slight but does have a few laughs. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Aug 30, 2018

    Like Lex Luthor/Porky Pig, I'm still not 100 percent convinced Looney Tunes characters needed to be in this story, but that doesn't keep Simone and Miranda from delivering a fun one-off superhero romp. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Aug 31, 2018

    Though perhaps a bit overstuffed and broad in humor, Gail Simone and Inaki Miranda turn out a really clever, funny, and solidly drawn tale of tribes coming together. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Josh McDonald Aug 28, 2018

    There are times when the book is fun, but the story drags during the beginning. In addition to that, there appears to be a battle of tones. The story feels as if it wants to take itself seriously, but it's loaded with dialogue that is essentially a lift from the Looney Tunes cartoons. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Lucas Fashina Aug 29, 2018

    Out of Five stars I give it a 2.5 only because the beginning and end was too sloppy but if you are a fan of the looney tunes universe I simply cannot recommend this book strongly enough. Read Full Review

    The frist story are really good stuff, maybe the fight between the heroes keep up too longer. I'm also surprised to see Clarion as the one with the answer.
    The Second story is really funny, but much for kiddo !

    Cover - The variant. I find it in link & nice. 2/2
    Writing - Both are strong & less stronger part. 2/3
    Arts - The first story are great art even if their is some issue with Black Canary Face. The second is perfect. 2.5/3
    Feeling - It was nice. 2/2

    I Review Comics Apr 29, 2019

    The DC/Looney Tunes Crossovers have been better than they have any right to be and this issue offers a decent addition to that trend. Catwoman/Tweety & Sylvester is a charming affair that manages to capture the spirit of the classic characters. I love Sylvester and Tweety but I admittedly haven't spent time with them in decades.

    The comic starts with a group of witches deciding to wager the fate of the world on a battle between Sylvester & Tweety. Sylvester literally falls into Catwoman's lap. Tweety end's up with Black Canary. The battle begins as a simple slugfest between the two women but escalates to include an entire army of cat and bird-themed characters.

    I picked up this comic based on the cover alone. Ema more

    I'm glad I bought it. The plot got a bit crazy at one point and I wasn't sure what was going on or why... Maybe I just need to give it a second read. Art -well done to all!

    By no means perfect, but fun if not a bit messy. I liked all the cameos in this one.
