I’m back with more Escher Cats and … seemingly everyone in this issue gets to use Catwoman’s inner monologue boxes except for Catwoman. And none of them make particularly good use of them. However, Catwoman does at least have a very in character reason (excuse? having your book taken over to help tell the KnightsEnd story really was not optional so it’s mostly a matter of trying to worth with and around plot requirements, especially for a character not directly involved in the KnightsEnd story).
This cover … The pose is actually okay (I spent a while staring at it to figure out what exactly she was doing with Azrael and in what direction) except that Catwoman’s back seems to have broken under the strain of trying to pull Azrael away from the man he has unconscious and is still going after. It’s actually a really interesting cover and has its own sense of story and drama but Selina is just a little too crunched in her pose and a little too close to losing her footing. I really don’t think it’s out of any Sexy Sexy reason, as is more common later in Balent’s run, but I have picked out a tendency to break backs and dislocate legs a bit for the sake of dynamic action poses and interesting, active covers and I think that’s the case here.
And, as a special bonus:
And that’s it for this time, folks. As always, the Catwoman comics belong to DC, not me, and Escher Girls is the creation of the awesome Ami Angelwings. And the Escher Girls bingo card belongs to the Escher Girls fan who created it.
