New Cat-Tales Covers

June 4, 2014

A few of the original Cat-Tales covers were due for a new paint job.  (Just showed my age, didn’t I?  Some old covers were due to be reimagined for a new generation of readers.)  At least 3 were, and one was suggested as a write in for the Catwoman-in-the-Batcave Wallpaper poll (still running, vote now.)

JLAin't: Tales of the Justice League

JLAin’t: Tales of the Justice League

 JLAin’t was the very first Cat-Tales spinoff, taking the Cat-Tales sensibility, humor and take on the characters and revisiting some stories from the Watchtower POV, while also telling some original tales.  It’s a thoroughly entertaining mini-series and I’ve never known a reader who didn’t wish there were more.


Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle in Cat-Tales: Go Rin No Sho

Cat-Tales: Go Rin No Sho

Go Rin No Sho takes its titles from a 16 Century manual on Samurai sword fighting “The Book of Five Rings” by Miyamoto Musashi.  Naturally Bruce has made a study of it, applying its principles to the management of his double life in the same way Wallstreet’s Gordon Gekko applied The Art of War.   Like the original, Go Rin No Sho breaks down into a chapter of Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Void – but the problem examined and the crisis Bruce faces has little to do with war.  The crisis he faces is that Selina has moved into the manor.  How can Bruce Wayne be a playboy with a live-in girlfriend?

Polishing Silver: The Journal of Alfred Pennyworth

“A real, meaningful, beautiful story showing just how that death affects all of the characters we care about, who have real feelings like real people, and like real people are interconnected by a complex web of emotions and relationships.”

Polishing Silver: The Journal of Alfred Pennyworth is on everyone’s Top 5 list, including mine.   ‘Nuff said.

Batman, Superman and Catwoman, the real Big 3, vs Luthor in Cat-Tales: War of the Poses

Cat-Tales: War of the Poses

Sly was just trying to get through the opening night of Vault without running out of bourbon.  He never meant to crown Catwoman “Queen of the Underworld” but somehow…   Thing is, the Lex Luthors of the world have a way of noticing stuff like that.

The War of the Poses cover, with Selina in that iconic skirted costume in a burning batcave, was the write-in suggestion from the poll.  Fear not, NostalgiCore, you will get your wallpaper also, but I decided if I was going to do it, we may as well have it for the cover of the story that inspired it.


Selina is Going Back to the Batcave and this time You Pick the Wallpaper

May 19, 2014

Several weeks ago I introduced a fun little picture for the scenes gallery called Coming to Bed Or Not?  inspired by a scene – or actually several different scenes – in various Cat-Tales.  What I learned from that little adventure is that the prospect of Selina in the Batcave is tremendously popular with many of you.  Also that you want wallpaper sizes and dimensions whether I think a picture’s PITA hologram is too grainy for HD or not.  Ok, message received.    More Selina in the cave.

To make it up to you, I’m going to let you decide what the next wallpaper will be.   I selected three stories that had Selina in the cave in a unique context, each with their own distinct flavor.  Identity Element, where she is researching the Justice League security system after the Dibny murder, Blueprints where the cave and its many secrets plays an important role in the search for some gold bars (and the reason for the search) and Not My Kink, where she’s taking over nightly patrols while Bruce recovers from an injury, even though it’s the dreaded C-word.

Not My Kink had the most diversity of tone, so the sample images are all inspired by that, but I’ve left open the option to write in suggestions from the other two.

New Wallpaper: WELL, SO AM I!

September 9, 2013

The latest desktop wallpaper is another scene suggested by readers.

Catwoman and Riddler in Cat-Tales: Not My Kink

Pissed? “WELL, SO AM I!” he screamed. Then he… he swung his sack of rubies at my head! I ducked, and he kept going. Spun himself around almost a full 360 and spilled a few rubies on the floor before he caught his balance, and then skidded on one and fell on his ass.

In Not My Kink, Selina took over Bruce’s *cough*fighting duties while he recovered from an injury.  She lasted all of 5 chapters before Riddler figured out what was going on.  “Zany hijinx ensued” as they say.

All the new wallpapers are available in high definition for all screen ratios and devices.



New High Def Wallpaper in Cat-Tales Gallery

May 24, 2013

A few months ago, I introduced Bat-Family Sunrise, the first of a new series of Batman, Gotham and Cat-Tales-themed HD wallpapers for all screen dimensions and devices.  “First in a series” implies, um, more.  And I know you’ve all been waiting, most of you waiting patiently.

This new one was suggested and voted on by readers, inspired by Chapter 9 of The Gotham Post.


Selina, Eddie and a healed Harvey Dent dressed as Nightwing retreat to the real Gotham After Dark when Mrs. Ashton-Larraby’s GAD-themed costume party predictably goes to hell.



A New Cat-Tale Begins-BUT FIRST!

March 27, 2013

For a backstage gal like me, there are few things as exciting as prepping a new story for release.  And possibly because some masochistic mutation inside my common sense cortex actually likes the mad whirlwind to put out fires erupting between dress rehearsal and opening night, I decided to put out a new wallpaper at the same time.


Armed robbers have made off with a ‘gigantic’ haul of diamonds after a rapid raid at Brussels Airport.

No, no, no, that’s teasing the first chapter.  Who would want that for their desktop wallpaper?

The Bat Family Waiting for Sunrise

New series of HD wallpapers for widescreen, PC, Android tablets and phones, iPad and iPhone

That’s much better.

Much as we all love the claw marks cutting into that purple leather of the first generation Cat-Tales wallpapers, times have changed, desktops have changed, and it’s time for a new selection for HD widescreen and mobile device images.

I asked CT readers what they’d like to see, and this image of the Bat Family gathering on a Gotham roof to watch the sunrise seemed the perfect way to begin.
