The Pennyworth Secret

January 27, 2016

The Butler’s Pantry

If you follow Cat-Tales on any social media, you know we had some fun with #NationalHotTeaDay (Yes, that’s a thing.)  Alfred made himself available for Q&A about a subject very near to his heart, with this enticing carrot: if he was sufficiently impressed with the questions he received, he would reveal the secret for brewing tea which was *ahem* redacted from the scene in Polishing Silver: The Journal of Alfred Pennyworth where he teaches Selina.

It seems he was sufficiently impressed, and so the questions, the answers and the secret are all available on the nascent niche site that was never really developed: The Butler’s Pantry.

Congratulations, Cat-Tales readers, and Enjoy.


Robin: Unfinished Business – A New Cat-Tales Spinoff Begins

December 9, 2013

I always liked it when Stephen Colbert introduces a guest or reports on a former guest’s latest with the formula ‘award-winning actor and friend of the show…’

Today I actually get to use that, because if there is a Friends of the Tales distinction, one of those who has earned it is certainly the Poser artist known as Thundering Monkey.  The 3-D/CGI gallery is filled with his creations, which display a real sense for the psychological moment that is the essence of visual storytelling.  But can he do it with words?  Turns out, the answer is yes.  Today, a new spinoff begins

With both Batman and Nightwing out of town the timing couldn’t be worse…

When an overzealous Civil Rights Attorney frees Stephanie Browns killer from Blackgate, it’s only a matter of time before he kills again. Now it’s up to Robin and Batgirl to solve a string of murders that have baffled the FBI for years, and put him away for good. It’s time to settle some Unfinished Business.

Set after Cat-Tales: Polishing Silver


Showcasing Selina’s Preserve: The Catitat

January 12, 2013

Last month’s Pinterest board of Catwoman Loot proved to be quite popular, so this time, we’ve got another terrific collection visuals celebrating another facet of Selina’s world: the private Big Cats preserve that all that loot pays for.

Remember when Catwoman had a cat theme? In Cat-Tales her stealing pays for a Big Cats preserve called The Catitat

Cat-Tales Readers know The Catitat as Selina’s private preserve, built and maintained with the proceeds of Catwoman’s thefts, it is home to Nirvana, her favorite ocelot, Shimbala, the largest tiger in captivity, Myk and Brii the caracals, and countless others. Here, it will be home to the most beautiful pictures of Big Cats that I can find.  Click here.

CT readers first heard about the Catitat way back in Cat-Tales #2 Normal, where they met Nirvana the ocelot but it wasn’t until Polishing Silver: The Journal of Alfred Pennyworth that we got our first real look inside the cabin.  The Superman of an alternate universe was impressed into service to do some landscaping in String Theory, which gave our Selina an idea when he wanted her to take in some tigers from a Justice League mission in The New Black, and repercussions from that continued into Riddle Me-Tropolis.  Trophies revealed some surprising details from the preserve’s history – details neither Bruce nor Selina were aware of before the readers found out (A Cat-Tales first!)

Those are the most significant references that I can think of.  Tweet me if you have more to add.
