As I mentioned earlier in the day, it's 50 years to the day since Adam West and Burt Ward burst on to our screen as the defintive, if somewhat campy, Dynamic Duo.

And appropriately enough, the final issue of the Batman '66 comic is a tribute to the show which made

Since it was on January 12th 1966 that the Batman TV series started, I had an idea to make a post, and I probably will too, before the day is out, but I've niow discovered that one of our most beloved fan-artists has beaten me to it.

So it with great delight I present The Black Cat's

One of my all time favourite comic runs is that of the Ed Brubaker/Cameron Stewart/Darwyn Cooke period on Catwoman, and I thought that I'd share some.

"Absolutely, Wonder Woman is a feminist icon. Throughout the course of her history, she has been a role model of strength and empowerment for young women, and today, those young women of the '60s and '70s are doctors and lawyers and executives for some of the world's biggest corporations. But I think that more importantly, Wonder Woman is a humanist and I would say that today, she is simply a symbol of equality and empowerment." - Meredith Finch

"I love her intelligence, her resourcefulness, her determination, her independence, and the moral gray area she lives in that’s just big enough for her to reinvent herself as necessary and small enough that she’s often bumping up against its edges.

I like to think Catwoman fans like her for all those reasons; there’s always something interesting in a character who’s constantly determining her own limits, but who’s independent enough that there’s always the option to bolt.

With Valentine's run sadly closing out this month for.... some reason, let's reflect back on it.

"The central conflict of our story is an internal one. When I think about what Diana/Wonder Woman represents… the word that comes to mind is love. Everything she does is based around the intense love she has for humanity. How will she reconcile that now that she is the God of War?" - Meredith Finch

Like all characters that exist for any extended length of time, Catwoman has undergone a number of changes over the years. I thought that it would be interesting to look at what Selina Kyle was like back in the day, in order to see what's changed about her and what's stayed the same.

Let's Begin.
