When DC’s New 52 offered me the opportunity to get to know Selina Kyle from the rebooted beginning, I seized it–only to get caught up in the subsequent controversy over Catwoman’s brazen relationship with Batman. Gratuitous splash page aside, I wasn’t offended by the current status of their sex life. Instead, I was more curious about this angry, violent–extremely violent–and reckless woman that writer Judd Winick and artist Guillem March gave us. I wanted to understand where this violence was coming from and why Batman was both unable to resist her and unable to stop her. But no matter what aspect of Catwoman #1 the controversy focused on, what struck me most was the complaint that this was not the “lady” both fans and Bruce Wayne had fallen for in her previous incarnations.

WHAT IS THIS?

This is my mindspill. Mostly about comics, books, video games, movies of the science fiction and fantasy leanings. Sometimes recipes and parenting stuff will sneak in, along with a real world rant or two.

I also write about geek culture at Women Write About Comics, and I review genre fiction at The BiblioSanctum.
