Things We Saw Today: Everyone Has A Crush On Batman

Things We Saw Today

Mike Maihack (who we selected for the art section of our 2011 Holiday Gift Guide) has drawn Batgirl/Supergirl strips before that have resonated with us but perhaps none so much as this. Hit the jump to see all the other cool stuff we saw today. 

  • Speaking of people who love Batman, ex-Catwoman Michelle Pfeiffer has weighed in on new-Catwoman Anne Hathaway. She told MTV, “Catwoman is iconic, you know. She’ll be brilliant in [The Dark Knight Rises]. I actually really look forward to seeing her. She’s so talented. She can do anything, so she’ll be fine.”
  • Darkness Falls writer Joe Harris will be taking over the Firestorm title of DC’s New 52 previously being written by Gail Simone. Co-writer Ethan Van Sciver will remain on the book. (via The Beat)

From fire to water, here’s an adorable Aquaman from DC artist Dustin Nguyen. (via Marcus To)

  • Warner Bros. has chosen Tom Cruise to play the part of Japanese soldier Keiji Kiriya in their adaptation of  All You Need is Kill. Yeah, we don’t get it either. (via Racialicious)
  • Check out this infographic depicting types of “alien worlds” in our galaxy.

My Womanthology artist, Hanie Mohd, does it again with another fantastic DC Lady In Sweaters. This time it’s Kate Kane Batwoman in a caplet. (via Hanie’s tumblr) Also, I found out too late to include her in our gift guide but she has just opened a brand-new Etsy shop to sell prints. Go check it out!

  • Our newly revamped sister-site, The Jane Dough, has a list up today of The Top 10 Best Female Bosses On T.V.
  • Do you like Bill Willingham’s Fables? Do you like ABC’s Once Upon A Time? Do you think ABC ripped off Willingham? He doesn’t think so. Check out the interview he did with himself on Comic Book Resources debunking the mystery.

And just in case you thought there was too much DC comic art in today’s TWS, here’s what Christmas looks like at Calvin and Hobbes’ place. (via The High Definite)
