Catwoman #1 Confirmed in the Flashboot 52

Pros and Cons

Yes, I will continue to call DC Comic’s September reboot Flashboot until somebody stops me.  Confirmed titles in the list of fifty-two continue to roll on in, with covers to match, and, as it turns out, you can lead an artist to draw pants, but you can’t make him not draw blatant, shameless cheesecake. As usual, DC Women Kicking Ass explores the subtle distinction between changing a costume and actually presenting female characters in a respectful way and makes me wish I’d done it first. And if you’re wondering what kind of history Catwoman has to draw on to make a new version of the character, look no further than this, incredibly comprehensive synthesis of a lot of different sources.

I’ll just sit here and think about how I’m way more excited for pretty much every announced title other than the core Batman ones.
