    CAT-MAN AND KITTEN (ONE-SHOT) is pure, wholesome, Golden Age fun. Jeff Parkers script nails the tone and the aesthetic of the time period, and Coopers art expertly balances modern comic quality with dated designs for an adventure thats all about fun. Read Full Review

    Cat-Man and Kitten #1 is a good spotlight for the heroic duo, giving them a grand adventure filled with exotic locations and action. On the down side, the supporting characters are more interesting than Cat-Man and Kitten themselves, but we do get some hints that theres more to Cat-Man than what we think, and I hope we get future stories with Cat-Man and Kitten to see how Cat-Man evolves over time.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 8, 2022

    Even if it isn't the Catman I most want to see back in comics, and the one-shot does loose a bit of steam layering questions about these characters which a one-shot can't possibly answer, I still quite enjoyed being taken for a ride and I'm a bit sad that this is the only issue we'll get (at least for now). This is the kind of comic I would gladly read more of. Read Full Review

    This "Mayan Mystery" of the Cat-Man David Merrywether and Kitten Katie Conn takes place in 1948. It is an interesting adventure and good to see these great characters pulled out of the shelf by Dynamite Comics. It is really tough to do a "one-shot" story in the era, where comics stories have long arcs, with a few actually beginning and ending in the same issue.

    The original Cat-Man was September 1940 in Temerson Publishing Co.'s Crash Comics #4; he got his own series in Cat-Man Comics Issue #1 (May 1941). Holyoke Publishing acquired by Temerson character Cat-Man in 1942, and continued Cat-Man Comics. Cat-Man Comics continued through Issue #32 (August 1946).

    So given the time frame, a lot of the original Cat-Man and Ki more

    The tone is suitably tongue-in-cheek and could actually have benefited from leaning even harder in that direction. Being a one-shot does hamper the story somewhat, especially one that takes places in two different countries, that introduces so many characters. A plot even smaller in scope might have flowed better.
