Batman is a Superhero
He may not have powers, but he Bruce Wayne, the Batman, Gotham's Dark
Knight, is an ideal example of what an "ordinary" human can achieve. His
powers are his mind and his body, his personal fortune, his will and
determination. The same can be said of Selina Kyle, the Catwoman.
Stories of heroes have been under siege. Batman and Catwoman have been
under siege. It took a fan writer to save them from a comic book industry
that no longer understood the essential elements of the characters they owned.
Cat-Tales is the real story of Batman, the
real story of the Superhero, a metafiction series by Chris Dee that tells the
truth behind the fiction.
Letís say nearly everything youíve ever read about Batman the
Superhero was 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.
