Catwoman #81 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Catwoman #81, about which I write the following sentences: "Like all of Pfeifer's issues, this is a swift-moving story with action and humor and drama. When Batman shows up at the end, it's no real surprise -- who else would show up to put a capstone on Selina's comic book series? -- but it's well-handled and ends with an almost literal cliffhanger.

"And let's not forget the art of David and Alvaro Lopez who have been consistently excellent for years. These guys deserve a major DC book as much as Pfeifer, and their style has been a perfect fit for 'Catwoman.'

"It's probably futile to review a comic book so close to cancellation, but 'Catwoman' readers know how good this series has been, and if you dropped the series somewhere along the way, you might want to check out the last few years of the comic and see what you've missed. This isn't one of those comics that's limping to the finish line. It's not a mercy killing. 'Catwoman' is a good comic book, standing tall even as it faces its demise."
