Classic Gotham City Architecture.
Over on noscans, in a thread about comic book architecture, there was a little talk about the Batman Black & White story about the guy who wanted to do a coffee table book on the Kooky Funky Anthropomorphized Object Buildings of Gotham, and a request to repost. So I give you 2 1/2 pages of an 8 page story, "Urban Renewal," by Will Pfeifer and Brent Anderson.

Perfect Moment: Catwoman #70
I haven't read Catwoman since the 90's, when she had the purple costume and a rack that made Peej's look modest, but when the following page was posted to the old SD, this became my third favorite comic page ever (second favorite Batman page). I forget who scanned this, but my thanks to them for it.

From Catwoman #70... )

I've kind of kept an eye out to see if this was posted earlier, but never saw it. If, however, I missed it and am double-posting, I apologize.

The Many Faces of Barbara Minerva, part 6 (Versus Catwoman)
And we're back; this time with an installment so ludicrous I can't even work up any real ire for it. I'm just left shaking my head in depressed bemusement, wondering how it all went so wrong. I mean, it's not that getting Cheetah a little cross-DCU exposure is a bad thing in principle, and even the basic formula of "catwoman + cat woman = double the feline fun" does seem sensible at first, cursory glance. Enough, even, that we've seen it not once, not twice, but three times with this incarnation of Cheetah at least - very impressive considering that a) Selina's not even remotely connected to Wondy, b) she's not even really exactly a *hero* and c) barring Injustice-type "everyone and their mother who was ever a bad guy is there" crossovers, her fights with Selina are the only times Cheetah's ever gotten coverage outside Diana's book. Ever.

Of course, "cursory glance" is a pretty pathetic thing to hang a story on, and it all falls apart like a house of oversize novelty cards after the Batmobile crashes into them the second you take even a fractionally deeper look at the characters involved. But Pfeifer and Loebs never let continuity or consistent characterization stop them before, and dammit, they aren't about to now.

Next up, we find out why Cheetah's wearing stupid pants, with post-ICk JLA and v3 WONDER WOMAN. Yeah, I know. But hey, at least there's pretty Dodson art.

Captain Atom layeth the smacketh down.
In further honor of Captain Atom getting a back-up feature in Action Comics, I thought I'd post some images from Will Pfeifer's Captain Atom: Armageddon. To put these images in context, after saving the earth from a giant kryptonite meteorite, Cap found himself blasted into the Wildstorm universe. He soon encountered one of that universe's two Superman equivalents, Mr. Majestic. Majestic attacked Cap without warning or provocation. Read more... )

You want Bat/Cat cuteness?
I'll GIVE you Bat/Cat cuteness. Well, mostly, sorta. Well, I'll give you the annotated history of Helena Kyle. Who is she, some may ask. Well Helena was an attempt by DC to screw with shippers like me, um, shake up Catwoman a bit. Yeah...

Once Upon a One Year Later.....
