That Hot Ivan Reis Catwoman Statue Drops Tomorrow @MidtownComics

May 30, 2017

A few months ago when our blog on A Catwoman Renaissance featured a smoking hot Balent-style Catwoman statue from Iron Studios, it was unclear if the breathtaking limited edition based on Ivan Reis would be available in the U.S.

We here at Cat-Tales are delighted to announce they’ve got her at Midtown Comics and

As stated in the original post, Scale 1/10, 18cm, hand-painted, smoking hot. Looks like the whip is separate to carry or drape however you like.  And a much fuller array of pictures in Iron Studios Facebook album.



Gallery Spotlight: In the Shadow of the Bat

February 26, 2013

Since the binge on Cosplay Appreciation Day, I took a break from spotlighting some of the stunning photography and costumes featured in our Fan Galleries on the Cat-Tales website, but it’s time to remedy that.  Because some expansion is now underway: new artists coming in, new pieces coming in from old artists, and as a tease of the goodies to come – a pair of cosplay pics from DragonCon 2012 that simply must be seen…

Catwoman: In The Shadow of the Bat

Selina has never had a good relationship with “Pheromones” aka “The Imposter” aka “That thing in the Batman costume” aka AzBat, and it pretty much started with that colossally bad first encounter. In Armchair Detective, Selina relives it almost word-for-word as she races home at the news that Bruce is injured “like some poetic Twilight Zone hell where you’re trapped in the worst night of your life for all eternity.”

Although several readers prefer the flashback from Blueprints, when Fate – or perhaps Karma – very kindly reversed that first meeting for her.  Now living at the manor, as at home in the Batcave as Bruce himself, it is she who is lookng down from a catwalk – into the Batmobile hangar where Jean Paul Valley is doing the Bat-clan a favor, picking up a delivery of jet fuel.

Gallery Spotlight: Catwoman by Anya Uribe

Artist Anya Uribe does these amazing, sensual curves that pull the eye through these wonderful compositions. Some of those compositions are very busy, some are elegantly simple, all have these soft colors and powerful lines that are just a wonder to me. There was a time when you looked at a comic page, and you could tell who drew it. Anya reminds me of that. Her pieces are instantly recognizable as hers, from voluptuous portraits like this to amusingly innocent chibis.
