Now, I take Easter quite seriously, it being THE major Christian festival of the year, so in the interests of personal taste I shall refrain from making any religious themed Easter posts, but acknowledging there are a large number of people who enjoy the secular side of things, a couple of scans which are kinda-sorta easter related.

I still hold the Ed Brubaker/Cameron Stewart/Darwyn Cooke Catwoman run as possibly one of the greatest comicbook series DC have ever put out. And since I've not posted anything from their run in a while, I thought that I'd put a bit from the first storyarc.

Enjoy!

And by BAD, I don't mean "Evil", "Feared" or "Dreaded", I just mean.... not that good. (I'm reminded of a line in a Transformers "Who's Who" thing, when describing Beast Wars Waspinator; "Waspinator is certainly capable of great evil, he's just not terribly GOOD at it")

Now it's true that some comic villains are magnificent constructions, with impresssive powers, finely crafted personalities and motivations that allow for a rich variety of plots. But let's be honest here, not every villain is that fortunate. They may all have grains of genius in their creation, and no villain is without the possibility of being redeemed (or the exact opposite, if you see what I mean) by the right writer. Consider The Shade, a rather generic shadowcaster before James Robinson got his hands on him. And it is of such lower rate villains we are dealing with here.

If you thought being a C-list hero was bad, try being a C-List villain )

"Some people will say they were censored, but that´s not exact. The new pages were not a toned down version of these, they were telling another story. [...] Maybe DC didn´t want to explore that storyline, so it´s not that obvious that the new pages were drawn just to remove the sexy content. It´d have been much more easy to censor these pages than having to redraw them all."

Sholly Fisch is proving, again, what a master he is of the genre of the completely ridiculous team-up, and that's a fine thing to be.

I've said it before, I'll say it again, I'm an old fashioned type. Whilst I'm all for nuanced and grey area heroes, when push comes to shove I like my heroes (and heroines) heroic and my villains (and villainesses) villainous, and my extra-dimensional imps mischevious. Simplistic? Maybe, but it can be terribly satisfying!

Case in point... )
