What you see in Batman Comics are a tissue of lies. Cat-Tales is
the real story where the events depicted in
DC offerings like Hush and Officer Down are understood to be the exaggerations, and sometimes
the outright fictions, of tabloid journalists at The Gotham Post. The Dark
Knight Rises Catwoman premiered July 20, 2012, and while we all hoped it
would set the
record straight and give us the real story, the Batman and Catwoman we
wanted to be, the Bruce
and Selina we wanted to be, the Gotham City we wanted to live in. The
costumed rogues we want to see...
We got only another bait and switch, Miranda Tate, an angry bitter and
graceless Selina whose class came only from her clothes, and a Bruce who
simply quit being Batman. Like comics fans before them, movie fans are
left to turn to fan fiction. Here's hoping they find Cat-Tales by Chris Dee.
Letís say nearly everything youíve ever read in a comic book is
wrong. The identities are correct: Bruce Wayne is Batman, Selina Kyle is
Catwoman. They live in Gotham City. There is a Wayne Manor, a Batcave and
Batsignal, etc. But the rest is all exaggeration, distortion, and often the
outright lies of a sensationalist tabloid called The Gotham Post, otherwise
known as DC Comics.
Cat-Tales tells the truth behind that fiction, revealing characters
that are more complex and fully-human than anyone thought possible.
Heart-stopping romance, side-splitting humor, and poignantly understated
tragedy, itís all here: the man inside the Bat, the woman within the Cat,
the life between the panels, the truth behind the masks.
