Webcartoonists Respond to the Cover of Catwoman #0

Great Hera!

It’s the beginning of the true summer season, and what that means in comics is that DC and Marvel are revealing their solicits for September, that is, the artist lineups, covers, and brief plot teasers. For DC, September is the first anniversary of their New 52, which means special issue #0’s for everybody, each one focusing on (though not necessarily retelling) their origins.

Judging by the cover for Catwoman 0#, Catwoman’s new origin is that she’s a refuge from Lumpy Space. Naturally this did not go unnoticed by some of our favorite webcartoonists. (Post is probably NSFW, if it isn’t already.)

Josh Rogers of Mushface Comics prepared this masterpiece:

Catie of CatieMonstrous whipped up a whole slew of Catwomans, each one better than the last,

And of course Kate Beaton lent her experience drawing Strong Female Characters to the cause:

Of course, not everyone was happy.

A picture is worth a thousand words, but nevertheless, DC Women Kicking Ass has one more excellent point to make about the whole thing.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
