Batman's Villains are called The Gotham Rogues or sometimes The Rogues
Gallery. They are part of what makes Cat-Tales what it is, for like
all characters in Chris Dee's
series, these are not 4-color caricatures
or 2-dimensional stereotypes but the most complex and carefully human beings
you will ever meet in comic book fiction.
Cat-Tales is the story of the Batman
but it is also much more than the Batman Villains. The stories are set in the ďrealĒ Gotham
City, where the events depicted in comic books about Batman and the criminals he
battles are understood to be the exaggerations, and sometimes
the outright fictions, of tabloid journalists at The Gotham Post, otherwise
known as DC Comics.
Not to mention Warner Brothers. The Dark Knight Rises opened July 20, 2012, and while we all hoped it
would set the record straight and give us the real Bruce Wayne, the real
Selina Kyle, the hero we deserve in every sense, it only brought more
fiction. A Bruce who had no commitment to his mission, who was Batman
for a few years at most and gave it up, and a Selina whose anger, bitterness
and insulting lower class origins missed the point of all the character
should be. At least Chris Dee's Cat-Tales remains to set the
record straight giving us a Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle worthy of each other
and worthy of being called Batman and Catwoman.
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.
