"In just four smart, deft issues, Ed Brubaker and Darwyn Cooke manage to redefine and refresh the woman behind the mask, infusing Catwoman with a feminine strength, moral depth, and a real sense of identity. Her struggle for the everywoman instantly makes her a likeable hero and we find ourselves rooting for her from page one. A great read and an amazing start to a razor-sharp book!" Jim Lee
"Here at Big Planet, weve been talking pretty much non-stop about these two guys, Ed Brubaker and Darwyn Cooke, the one an incredible crime writer whos taking Batman to new heights, the other a former storyboard artist for Batman: The Animated Series....This book is beautiful. And its even got that good story thing going for it." Big Planet Comics
"Brubaker and Cooke are telling a story in the old school pulp vein, with hard-boiled narration, sleazy characters, and a secret agenda for everyone involved." TheFourthRail.com
"If you aren't reading the new Catwoman, you really are missing out....This really is one of the best new series from either of the 'big two' companies in the past couple of years." iComics Reviews
