Teaching Batman to be a World-Class Cat Burglar – It Seemed Like a Good idea at the Time

February 14, 2017

Part 2 of the new Cat-Tales: Pearl has dropped, and it picks up right where we left off.  Selina is attempting to give Bruce a new cover identity, a more upscale chap, a thief on her level, who can move in criminal circles–and the high end art and jewelry circles–where Matches Malone wouldn’t make it past the doorman.

Today the lessons begin, and, well, the author herself puts it this way:

“I have to be honest, it was hard finding a tagline/description for this that didn’t call Bruce a pain in the ass.” – Chris Dee

Cat-Tales: Pearl is free to read on the Cat-Tales website and mobile-friendly mirror Cat-Tales.mobi

What Would Superman Do About Batman v Superman?

March 28, 2016

NMK Inc and Knight of the Mirrors explore how Superman might react to Hollywood churning out movies like Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman. The Iconic Superman Page‘s Michael Critzer has a more direct analysis.
