"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

"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

"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.

There's such a great history for the character, but in the same way Gotham is an elastic town, she's got an elastic story, where there's a lot of room for her within the DC mythos that Mark [Doyle, the Batman group editor] and company have been excited to explore. The last arc of Catwoman was a chance to tell a really great story for Selina that made the most of her sly smarts and set up some characters that could give her a run for her money, in one way or another, and the reader response has been incredible. This arc is where all those delicate things start to go to pieces, and in some ways that's even better." - Genevieve Valentine

Now that the spectacular train wreck that is Identity Crisis has been covered, we can deal with some of the fallout. You see, the arguement as presented by Oliver Queen in the main story is that they erased the memories of criminals (and just the memories, prior to Dr Light) in order to protect the lives and wellbeing of the superhero community's loved ones... WELL TURNS OUT THAT WASN'T THE CASE!

Lately I've seen people complain that the situation in Gotham City is so terrible that they've started asking "What good is Batman if it never gets any better?". Since has been shown to not be the case, I thought that I'd do a brief series of posts about the positive changes the various versions of Batman have made to their city over the years.
