Bruce and Selina, a sweet intimate scene inspired by Cat-Tales

Goodnight, Kitten by Remidar

“Goodnight, Kitten” a sweet Bruce & Selina companion piece to “Morning, Handsome” both by Remidar in the Cat-Tales Gallery.   Selina has been living in Wayne Manor since Highland Games at the top of Book 3. There are a number of bedroom scenes since then.  Chris chose one from Go Rin No Sho to illustrate the touching intimacy of the moment captured in this beautiful illustration by Remidar.

Gallery Spotlight: Bruce Wayne Training by Remidar

Not every piece in the Fan Gallery is taken directly from a Cat-Tale. This wonderful portrait of a young Bruce Wayne training is inspired by Batman Begins.

Remember that amazing Ice Fight between Bruce and Ducard? The first moment I remember that was Nolan’s own, branching off from comics to really infuse this Batman with his own flavor (snow-capped mountains = echt Nolan), and a perfect illustration of how it’s possible to do that while respecting the original story and doing honor to the characters. This marvelous portrait of a young Bruce Wayne training in the fan art gallery is by Remidar, one of the most prolific and gifted artists featured in the Cat-Tales Gallery.


This week in… Screw it, a love letter to Remidar

May 10, 2010

Don’t let anyone get away with saying comics aren’t an art form – and that includes the faux intellectuals who will sometimes allow that the stuff in that museum in Brussels is art, but not the lowly American stuff and certainly not anything pertaining to *sniff* superheroes.

The art of the comic is in the created colloid of words and visuals to create a new thing that is more than the sum of its parts.  I got my first taste when Thundering Monkey began using Poser to illustrate his favorite Cat-Tales moments.  Then Dorothy Rose got me into the hard stuff when she took the first paragraphs of A Girl’s Gotta Protect Her Reputation to create a graphic novel-style prologue for the CT series.  That brings us to last week’s addition to the fan art gallery.  This breathtaking jewel from Remidar:

That, my friends, is the work of a true artist.  See, for me, the art begins before pencil is touched to paper.  It begins with the sensibility that chooses that precise psychological moment.  “Just me, down here, with the bats.”  That’s just… damn.

And that’s why this week, rather than make a big todo about the reception of Chapter 5 (which Joker is trying to take all the credit for, btw, despite the fact that it’s the messages on Selina’s voicemail generating all the buzz), I’d like us all to take a moment and drink a virtual toast to our favorite artists.

Words and pictures, guys.  Words and pictures.
