Bruce Wayne's Bachelor Party, Selina Kyle's
Bachelorette, and it turns out there are actually worse wedding gifts than
For the first time, The Gotham Post is depicting Selina as more
confident, serene, magnificent... not the trashy goggle-thing. Chris's
Selina is like that all the time, except where the mask and the relationship
overlap. Chris is classy enough to admit to it and embrace it as a good
thing. Maybe DC is catching up with where the fans wanted them to be when
Chris wrote Cat-Tales 01; maybe it's a shining blip on the hellscape. Either
way, let's have ourselves a wedding!
What wonderful truths those are,
made all the more important and real because someone spoke them aloud to the
woman he loves. To say that something like the Post can never capture
anything more than a flawed, pale imitation of the real thing. To say that
the core essence of who they are and the truth of who they have become is so
much more complex and rich and real than anything the Post could imagine.
What a wonderful gift that is.
Definitely in the top 10 authors I've read.... and with as much as I
read, that's saying something.
This is as intimate a portrait of Bruce Wayne as ever I've seen.
