Subj: Batman/Catwoman 7 review

Arrgghhh. This miniseries is so frustrating. The three time periods is confusing. The new characters are just there. We really don't know anything about Helena or Andrea. It's all about Catwoman killing the Joker. Frankly, I don't see why anyone would care. With Bruce dead, I could absolutely believe that Helena and Dick would give Selina a pass.

This is the Joker. They'd have to be happy he's gone. That would be the interesting thing, not let's arrest Selina.

The big "twist" is that the Joker told Andrea something and that stopped her from killing him, in fact she went off with him and Selina doesn't know why. It's obvious that it's because he told her that her son is still alive. If I'm wrong, I am wrong, but I'm not wrong.

Nice art. That whole thing of Selina having rough sex with Bruce and locking him up so that she could kill the Joker was just dumb. Again, entire pages of no dialog but pubic domain IP doing the heavy lifting.

This is issue 7, and we basically don't know anything. We certainly don't see the personality of the characters in the future. Future Dick Grayson is a cipher. Helena is a cipher, Selina is a cipher. It's all plot with characters being chess pieces, not living breathing characters in which we can identify and emphasize with.


Or I could be wrong.
