catwoman trynna be sneaky
As I was saying, I’m a woman and can’t be taken for granted. Life’s a bitch, now so am I.

Heart of Hush
The BatCat book of all BatCat books. ;_; The things he feels for his pretty kitty…
I just read part of Catwoman #18—thankfully I had fair warning from helenawaynehuntress too as I am absolutely appalled by how Ann Nocenti has written Bruce and Selina for the Requiem arc. Like helenawaynehuntress told me, you just have to see the whole thing for yourself.
Now see these three pages above, from Detective Comics #800?
That’s how I picture them going through grief together. Not this horrid caricature of the very worst of both Batman and Catwoman.
This… is exactly how it was for Selina and I… all those years ago.
JFC I hate Nocenti’s run. I actually bought Catwoman #18 today because I hoped the interaction between her and Batman would be good, but GODDAMN I want my 2.99 back. I don’t even know what I got my hopes up for because I dropped the book 3 issues ago because the writing was so…bad. :(
I actually think that Winick’s version of Selina, while still ridiculous and problematic, was way better! She at least had some kind of agency in her decisions and her interactions with others didn’t feel as much like watching an emotionally stunted teenager gallivant around with a simpering smile and a whiny attitude. She seemed to actually care about other people and felt horrible when things turned bad for them. Remember the guilt she felt over Lola’s death? I believed it.
Actually the review of Catwoman #0 that Gotham Spoilers did pretty much accurately sums up how INSANE Selina’s character sounds under Nocenti. :\
AND DON’T GET ME STARTED ON HOW SHE BUTCHERED BRUCE OH MY GOD WHAT EVEN WAS ALL THEIR DIALOGUE I JUST CAN’T
Ugh I didn’t mean to rant about the badness, but it’s just SO BAD.
This stuff up there though? THAT is good BatCat interaction. So lets all look at that and pretend that Catwoman #18 doesn’t exist.
Also, at least she was fun in JLA #2. I was ready to ship her and Trevor last month and now it’s like they’re handing it to me and I don’t know how to feel about that. XD
