The Definitive Catwoman
The Definitive Catwoman is surely the Selina Kyle of Chris Dee's
Cat-Tales. The Definitive Batman is surely her Bruce Wayne. And
the Definitive Dark Knight Romance is without question the exquisitely
delicate tale which begins with such solid understanding of Bruce and Selina
as individuals, making their romance believable in ways no mere fan fiction
is ever believable, because it is grounded in absolute psychological truth.
Letís say everything youíve ever read about Catwoman is
wrong. The identities are correct: Selina Kyle is
Catwoman. She lives in Gotham City. Bruce Wayne is Batman. 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.
The truth about Catwoman, the truth about Batman. 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.
The Dark Knight Rises Catwoman opened July 20, 2012, and we all hoped it
would offer an official franchise-sanctioned vision of Selina Kyle worthy of
the character, who would establish her for a new generation as the woman she
should be. We were, as always, disappointed. Nolan's angry
bitter slum-dweller is a confused mess of shout outs to contradictory and
irreconcilable comics, most of which were not worth reading the first time. The Definitive
Catwoman History remains Chris Dee's Cattitude.
