    Catwoman #58 brings us the actions of a big cast of characters in the midst of a disastrous turf war, and one that’s about to see a third player enter the game. A good comic story should build on what’s already there and progress the tale to the next issue. A great comic, like this one, leaves its readers hungry for more.

    The character has been used really well in this book, but it’s odd that the actual hyped conflict of this book really seems to be a complete footnote in the main story. Will Batman and Catwoman have one more big blowout fight in the final issue? Maybe, but right now it seems like this is more about tearing them both down for future stories.

    Big things are alluded to and the only way to find out if they land on their feet is to keep reading. I know I plan to!

    Whilst The Gotham War hasn’t resonated with all fans it’s hard to ignore the emotional impact that Tini Howard is able to instil with this issue. The Gotham War is racing towards its conclusion with plenty at stake for both its central forces.

    It all comes down to this, as Catwoman #58 changes the entire focus of this mini Bat/Cat event throwing certain major plotlines to the side for the moment. Much of the same energy that has made this run sing is still present, even if the overall storyline pulls the book back down to Earth a bit.

    Comic Watch

    Plot and character, emotion and action clashes in Catwoman #58, working against one another instead of feeding off the other. Much like Catwoman and Batman, these elements just can’t sync up, creating an interesting at times, but overall weak reading experience. Howard’s writing is at its best when the plot is put on the back burner and the clashing personalities of the two masked figures get to the surface. Reminding readers of the human aspect of these characters, the art does its best to sell the sexual, but more importantly, romantic, tension between the duo. Gandini’s color is just as stuck in between the oscillation of quality, never quite blending with the art to perfect effect.

    Lyles Movie Files

    Gotham War needed a strong chapter to keep the momentum for this divisive storyline going. This issue failed to properly advance the war with an installment more confusing and convoluted than entertaining.

    The “Gotham War” event barrels on and if you’re someone who is just keeping up with the Catwoman portions of the story, the ride might not be entirely worth it. Tini Howard’s script does offer some satisfying moments regarding Selina’s relationship with Bruce, Scandal, and company, but there’s still much more concern with the larger event than with Selina’s own place in it. Nico Leon’s art also has fleeting brilliance, especially as the cast of the issue grows, but this still feels far from the series’ full potential.

    The Batman Universe

    The characterization is pretty inconsistent with what we have seen in the past issues of The Gotham War. Tini Howard paints an interesting picture with Selina’s thoughts, but, overall it feels like editorial realized that Batman and Catwoman need to team-up to stop the Savages. As a result, the issue feels flat.

    Catwoman #58 is a disaster. Howard either has never read a Batman comic or has no idea how to present a valid Batman in her own script. The plot is a haphazard sequence of events, and the character work leaves much to be desired. Overall, this issue and event have been lackluster at best.

    Comic Book Revolution

    Catwoman #58 continues the massive disappointment that Gotham War has been as a whole. Every problem with this Batman and Catwoman crossover appears here. The sooner this crossover is wrapped up the better it’ll be as the Batman franchise can move on to what’s next.

    The art in this issue is frequently solid but between the lack of many backgrounds and the highly suspect nature of others, I don’t think I can really list that as a selling point. The writing of this title remains slightly better than Batman but still isn’t doing anything to redeem this event. The Gotham War has been a huge miss and I for one am more than ready to leave it in the past when it wraps up this month. Hopefully, we’ll be on to better things then.
