Review: I don't actually read any Batman comics, but I've always
loved the character. Everytime I tried to check out the actual comics it
seemed like the writers were trying their best to drive readers away. The
canon characters became caricatures of their real selves. Reading Cat-Tales
has rekindled my interest in Gotham and its denizens. To me, Chris's Bruce
and Selina are real and DC's versions are just cheap rip-offs that don't
interest me in any way at all. So thank you for making me love these
characters again. Loose Ends is a great addition to the Cat-Tales universe.
This is classic Bruce -- desperately wanting to protect a loved one, to
the point where he uses anyone and anything, including other loved ones whom
he would, in other circumstances, be equally desperate to protect, as
weapons, and expendable ones at that.
Everyone picked up on Bruce's odd behavior as something amiss. And yet
this is tame for the bat-prick in continuity comics. But then, Cat-Tales
readers have higher standards. That's why we like this universe: we don't
want to read about Bat-Prick and Cat-Whore, we want to read about Batman and
Catwoman. There's a difference.
