    Batman on Film

    “Nine Lives” has been a thoroughly enjoyable arc so far and this issue did not disappoint me. Howard is killing it in this story as she kills Selena repeatedly and I hope Raffaele gets to continue beyond this one plot. Don’t miss it!

    This is easily the best comic I’ve read from Tini Howard’s pen. It has a bit more to say about the character than I’ve come to expect and makes excellent use of this arc’s concept. Small issues aside, I will happily recommend this comic. Going forward, all I can say is, I hope Howard keeps it up! This may be Stefano Raffaele’s final issue on this title but that doesn’t have to mean the stories have to suffer. I have high hopes for the rest of this arc!

    This is, by leaps and bounds, the best installment of the “Nine Lives” arc yet. Tini Howard’s script finds the perfect serialized score to illuminate Selina’s current mindset, with stakes that are much more intense and poignant than facing off against a particularly dangerous villain. Stefano Raffaele’s art is also growing to suit this series very well, especially where the more grotesque visuals of thie issue are concerned. This engrossing issue has gotten me even more excited for the rest of this arc – and for whatever’s in store for Catwoman beyond that.

    This issue is rather brutal and hard to read in places, but has a very unexpected guest appearance in the last pages that brings things together in a surprisingly powerful way.

    Comic Watch

    Between Tini Howard’s writing and Stefano Raffaele’s art, Catwoman is made out to be an intriguing character without being defined by or a thorn in Batman’s side. If there’s been any issue as of recent which has shown that, it’s number 61.

    The Batman Universe

    Catwoman #61 just appears to be a chance for the artist to draw mutated characters, offering no real reason for Catwoman to steal the item she’s after beyond it just being pretty. Catwoman is a better character than this.

    Things continue to drag along in ‘Catwoman’ #61 as the extra lives storyline finds a way to get even grimmer while still avoiding what once made it great. A super guest spot helps to boost the book a tiny bit, as do the visuals that are befitting of the book and tone but not so much the storyline.

    Dark Knight News

    Catwoman #61 delights us all but also leaves us wondering and worrying about Catwoman’s well-being. Just because she’s functionally immortal that doesn’t mean she should be so cavalier. This does however give us a great deal of interesting drama wrapped up in unknowable magic that leaves us readers clamouring for answers.
