A Batman Elseworld - or to be clear, DC Comics is the elseworld, Batman Comic Books are the "Elseworlds." Cat-Tales is
the real story, set in the real Gotham City, where the events depicted in
Batman comic books are understood to be the exaggerations, and sometimes
the outright fictions, of tabloid journalists at The Gotham Post.
What they say about Batman is bad. What they say about Catwoman is
worse. Finally they go too far and Selina Kyle punches back in a
one-woman show called Cat-Tales. The Dark Knight Rises premiered July 20, 2012, and we all hoped
it would bring some truth and not more fiction, set the record straight and give us
a real story, a real Batman, a real Bruce
and Selina, a Gotham City we could believe in, it brought only another
bait-and-switch: Miranda Tate, an angry bitter graceless and witless 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
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.
Reviews of this Batman Elseworld
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.
