Made possible by a generous grant from the Wayne Foundation… If there is a formula of words that practically guarantees Zany Hijinx shall ensue, that’s the phrase.

The newest addition to the Cat-Tales scenes gallery takes its inspiration from the Gala Re-Opening of the Gotham Museum of Modern Art, and as readers of the important Book 4 tale will recall, portents did not lie.  Who remembers all the players depicted here?

Inside an Enigma Concludes in Part 7: Tarot

August 20, 2013

Now that the Whiskers & Nutmeg fanbase have been appeased, we can return at last to the humans who consider themselves the main characters in Cat-Tales:

Selina was a Rogue.  She knew the rules.  And the rules say the Riddle-Clue has to lead somewhere.

They also say be careful what you wish for.

Guess which one Eddie forgot in the final chapter of INSIDE AN ENIGMA:

Catwoman v. Riddler – Inside an Enigma 6

July 24, 2013

Quite early in Cat-Tales: Book 1 something happened which was long overdue in Wayne Manor, a house with 80+ rooms and therefore 80+ doors which was also the home of a man with a secret identity and therefore telling a lot of lies.  Farce!  I know superhero comics and Batman in particular has been asphyxiating on the dark & gritty for 30 years, but even so, superhero comics were around for decades before that.  It’s hard to believe we stumbled into such camp before uncovering a comedy staple like farce.

Which actually has nothing to do with Inside an Enigma 6, but that farcical episode did include the following line:

“Bruce has had this coming for a long, long time.”

And that’s what’s been echoing my head in releasing this chapter, because something else has been coming for a long time.  Catwoman v. Riddler.  Selina v. Eddie.  He’s had his moments of being a stand-up guy since learning Bruce’s secret (and hence Selina’s secret that Catwoman was romantically involved with Batman after all) way back in Cat-Tales: Strange Bedfellows.  He’s had more moments of being petty, manipulative, and an insufferable dick.  The tensions have built, shifted, friendships were tested,  mended and tested again.  Now, Selina’s had enough.

Zogger, Zoophilly and Zeitgeist

June 26, 2013

We all love Selina, but she does have a nasty streak that we haven’t seen in a while, and it’s stretching like a cat after a long nap.

“I said I was a patient cat, I am.  I said I would wait, I did.  He betrayed my friendship, betrayed my trust.  And now… he is going… to pay.”
-Selina Kyle in the last chapter of Inside an Enigma.

Now the new installment is here…

…And if I were Edward Nigma, I’d be very worried right now.

It’s been a week since the a certain kiss up at Arkham that tasted of a Hail Mary Pass and the goings on outside Arkham are about to collide with the happenings inside its walls.  But first, we did leave off with Selina back from a few weeks abroad and thanks to some kryptonite-infused kelp, she and Bruce haven’t had their reunion yet.  Dare we hope that for once there will be more apricot silk than claws & batarangs?

Bruce and Selina reunite in Inside an Enigma Chapter 4


Maybe?  “Just this once,” as they both like to say?

And who remembers when we last saw these guys?

Meanwhile at Arkham... Inside an Enigma Part 3: The Hail Mary Pass

Meanwhile at Arkham… Inside an Enigma Part 3: The Hail Mary Pass

With a title like Inside an Enigma, with a cover image juxtaposing Chinese finger puzzles with the Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, everyone knew the latest Cat-Tale simply must involve Edward Nigma, aka The Riddler.  But throughout chapter 1 and 2, there was no sign of him.  There’s been no sign of him since he was last seen casting off the role of Fate’s Bitch and stepping up to lead the Rogues in a dangerous war against Carmine Falcone.  That ends now in Inside an Enigma Part 3:  The Hail Mary Pass.



Cat-Tales: The Gotham Rogues – A Knight at the Opera

February 1, 2012

I can’t really compete with the video tease we had a few days ago, so let’s get straight to the links.  The latest installment of The Gotham Rogues is here, it’s Chapter 4: A Knight at the Opera.  In addition to Selina, whom you’ve seen, this chapter features Bruce Wayne, a touch of Gotham History, The Riddler (universally known as Eddie among Cat-Tales cognoscenti), Carmine Falcone, and oh yes, that big hulking guy, Bane.

It's the Gotham Rogues v. The Gotham Mobs in Cat-Tales latest, starring Selina Kyle, Bruce Wayne and Bane
