Batman '66 #30 - The Final Issue, but is it the end?

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

'Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na BATMAN!' a worldwide phenomenon )

Catwoman #38

"In this specific case, I am lucky to not feel that pressure because Mark, our editor, and Garry have been on the same page as me since the first moment. I am definitely aware that there are issues regarding the presentation and role of women both on the page and behind it. For myself, as a storyteller, I am trying to not use some of the things that have been criticized. I am trying to not put any women in sexual peril. If I can get away with that through the entire run, that's my goal. Because, as we find out, there are plenty of other ways that someone can be in peril. [Laughs] But there is definitely some pressure from people that are hoping that comics will start to reflect women as subjects rather than objects and start to avoid these easy pitfalls." - Genevieve Valentine

Catwoman #36-37

catwoman36cover

"When she takes the job, when she accepts her birthright, she is doing it with the best intentions. She does it so that no one else does it because she figures that her intentions are better than the other people who were trying to take this job. And she is hoping to use this as a way to make crime so organized that we can get rid of the collateral damage that comes when crime families are fighting with each other and we can start using all of these shell companies to start rebuilding Gotham. She has plans where she recognizes what she is doing is morally very tricky but she is hoping to be less evil than someone else would be in this same role. In some ways, she is taking one for the team. But of course, nothing ever ends up as clean as you hope, especially not in Gotham. When bad guys come knocking at the door, she has to decide how much she is willing to pay to stay in power. That's a big question." - Genevieve Valentine

Catwoman #35

"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.

75 Years On: A look back at Golden Age Catwoman

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.

Oh, hai Denny! )

Batgirl Week: The $1200 debut of Batgirl!

Oh, there was a girl from Gotham...

That walked the hero's road,

For the sake of her old father...

It's to her I sing this ode.

With ra-zor sharp intellect...

She struck down every foe.

Joy and inspiration,

It's these to her we owe...

Gray and blue...

Gray and blue...

The girl from Gotham wore the gray and blue...



So of course, this comic is best known for introducing a sociopathic criminal. C'est la vie. )

By the way, I'll be going through a lot of Babsgirl stuff this week, so if there's anything you want me to keep my grubby little hands off of, speak up now. Thank you.
