Hello once again to the World of Bats, the Batman Book Club! Or should I say…the World of CATS?
Since April is the 80th Anniversary of Catwoman’s first story in the pages of Batman #1 in 1940, this month we are going to have a deep dive into the Feline Fatale and see what makes her such a purr-fect addition to the Batman mythos!
(Sorry, that’s going to be the first and last cat pun I’ll make this month.)
To start off, we’ll dive into Catwoman’s first mini-series, named in trades as “Her Sister’s Keeper,” written by Mindy Newell and drawn by J.J. Birch.
When a criminal associate assaults young Selina Kyle, she learns how to defend herself—and that murder comes easily. She also discovers she is destined to be the Catwoman.
You can find the link to the mini-series HERE!
Let us know what you think of this yarn! Here are some discussion questions to help:
This story is very much influenced by and a continuation of the plot and themes of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One, even going as far as to use pages/dialogue directly from the source. What do you think of it as a follow-up to Year One?
This is also the introduction to Maggie Kyle, Selina’s younger sister. What do you think of this character? Does she add anything to the character of Selina?
What would you say is your favorite moment in this story?
This discussion will be current from: 2020-03-28T05:00:00Z → 2020-04-03T05:00:00Z
