Catwoman: Nine Lives of a Feline Fatale based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book will make Catwoman fans from all eras happy. This book includes the very FIRST issue of Batman, which includes 'The Cat' (our girl!) It also includes many issues from her early days, including a hilarious appearance in 'Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane' which is so silly and campy that you can't help but like it. More recently it has a Batman comic from the late 80's (what happens when she goes on a date with Batman? Sweet and funny), a great issue from her first series (also funny, and written by a woman!), and one connected to her current series that sets up how she got to her current incarnation. This is a great example of how Catwoman changed from a one-note villian full of cat-related puns to a fully developed strong woman, and the ALWAYS amusing costume changes. But it also shows how the role of women and how they were portrayed in the media has evolved over the decades- and it may surprise you how much. This is great fun for all comic book fans, but it really is an essential for my fellow feline addicts. Enjoy!
