Sponsored by the Wayne Foundation (Uh-oh)

June 20, 2014

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?

Gallery Spotlight: Portraits al Ghul

March 20, 2013

One of the subtler bits in Cat-Tales that might amuse only me, the cult of personality Ra’s al Ghul has built around himself includes naming just about everything he does and touches as the /Name of thing/ al Ghul. In Napoleon’s Plan Ra’s undergoes the ritual of the Mergulho al Ghul literally the “dipping of the Demon.” He brings Bruce (actually Selina) the Ata al Ghul – the Gift of the Demon. When he’s got the munchies after that pit-dip, you just know there’s a minion somewhere in charge of delivering the daily snack of the Demon.

Minions of the decadent west, it is therefore my unworthy honor to present the Character Portraits al Ghul…

Ra’s al Ghul, Light of the East, Terror of the West, Apex of the Age of Oneness through One Rule, etc etc deigns to visit the DEMON base in Gotham’s Chinatown


Trick or Treat

October 31, 2012

Just in case the vampire hoards in yesterday’s pick Capes & Bats were too scary for you, we have a very different Halloween classic from Cat-Tales Book 2:

Cat-Tales: Trick or Treat

Wonderful Edward Gorey-style depiction of Bruce Wayne as Sherlock Holmes, Selina Kyle, Alfred Pennyworth, Talia al Ghul and Edward Nigma for the cover of Cat-Tales: Trick or Treat

The Gotham Mythology Museum has a special exhibit celebrating the Mystery Whodunit, and they’re kicking it off with a costume party. Hey, it’s not every day Bruce Wayne gets to dress up as his hero, now is it?

So that’s the treat. The trick… Click through and read it. You’ll find out.



Blogtalking about Batman, Catwoman and all things Gotham (What else is new?)

October 28, 2011

I had such a blast last night appearing as a guest on Blogtalk Radio and talking about all things Catwoman: Purple Catwoman, Reboot Catwoman, Catwoman and Batman, all the actresses who’ve played Catwoman in the movies… well you get the idea. Seriously though, we talked about other stuff. Harley, Ivy, Joker… Meow
