The Evolution of Catwoman in Who’s Who and Secret Files and Origins, 1986-2006.
This covers her history from Golden Age/Earth-Two (where she married Bruce), Bronze Age, Post-Crisis, Post-Miller, Balent era, and goggles era up to War Games. Art by Dave Stevens, Brent Anderson, Alan Davis, J.J. Birch, Brian Stelfreeze, Jim Balent, Bill Sienkiewicz, Cameron Stewart, and Pete Woods.
If you want a more in-depth tour of her Post-Crisis origins, I highly recommend Dr. Von Fangirl’s Ultimate Catwoman Origin Timeline, which entertainingly and brilliantly reconciles the seemingly-convoluted and contradictory backstory elements from the Miller origin, the Balent era, and other controversial stories. That timeline single-handedly made me a bigger Selina fan.

The BATPLOITATION is BACK!!!
Here’s a few more concepts for my BATMAN 1972 story, including a good look at one of the Bat-mobiles and at the creepy JOKER! Plus: more sexy Catwoman and Batman looking over a NYC-like Gotham (btw Gotham is one of the nick names for NYC)
Hope ya dig the groove here :)

Every so often DC Comics or Marvel do something unexpected but so right. Batman and Superman in the new 52 have primarily handled by artists who follow the house style for DC male superheroes - square jaws and bulging muscles - think Tony Daniel, Jim Lee, David Finch and Greg Capullo to name a few. There’s certainly range within those artists but they all have the same feel.
Jae Lee does not have the same feel. DC has released the preview of the first issue of Batman/Superman and it looks like no other superhero book DC has right now. I can’t wait to read this.
Only They can do this.
I wanted to wait until I’d had a few done, but I feel I can share these now. I mentioned a little while back that I was contacted by en editor at a company I really wanted to work for with a test script, well it was a DC!
I’ve been working on some Injustice: Gods Among Us sample pages from issue #17. Written by Tom Taylor and originally drawn by David Yardin. (Which was intimidating let me tell you, they are two amazing Australian creators who have both been an inspiration to me over the years and two really top guys.)
I learned a lot working on these pages and I received some invaluable feedback. I am really very lucky to people willing to offer their time to help me improve.
The general consensus is that I’m ‘nearly there,’ but not there yet - professionally. I can see that, my panel layouts and composition are holding me back and it’s the thing I have trouble with the most. However, I am excited for what is happening next!
Can’t say much yet; past I’m about to buckle down even harder and push through everything that is currently problematic about my sequential work. Hopefully I will emerge the other side with a comic gig, and the knowledge that I have not wasted the time of those people passionate enough to help me get there.
