DC released their September solicitations this week, and the cover for Catwoman #0 has born reactions that are nothing short of hysterically funny. Check out this slideshow of mockery that had me just guffawing, the tears streaming down my face. I’d considered posting my own reaction to the obscene ridiculousness of the cover, but then there are plenty others who have already summed it up, and so eloquently, too.
I almost feel bad for Guillem March. I’m not sure the anger is really warranted toward him; if anything, the blame and frustration should be placed on the editor who OK’d this. That editor was not doing their job … or, perhaps this is exactly what they believe their job to be—to spurn enough fury to get the Internet talking, bringing attention to this book, getting Catwoman “out there.” For all the unbelievably wrong reasons, of course.
Apologies for the massive linkage, but in lieu of reviews this week, this is some important reading.
Actually, I should probably change that title to “why MORE girls don’t read comics.” Clearly, many of us do, although it’s getting increasingly more difficult….
No reviews from me this week, as I haven’t had a chance to read the stuff I wanted to review. Instead, I leave you with this very striking post from Laura Hudson at Comics Alliance about DC’s latest fail. It’s worth a read. Warning that it contains spoilers to Red Hood and the Outlaws #1 and Catwoman #1. I would also say that some of the imagery might be deemed “NSFW,” which is telling when you figure that the images have only been taken from the aforementioned books. Kind of messed up, no?
Have a good weekend, all. Pick up Wonder Woman #1 and the latest Children’s Crusade.
