Escher Cats! – Issue 14!

I really love the art on this issue and the mix of wacky, serious, and just plain awesome so … Zero Hour tie-in issue. Catwoman wakes up (in a stolen bed themed around a goddess associated with, you guessed it, cats) next to a sabre-tooth tiger in bed and with a scantily clad man in her living room. Who is apparently the sabre-tooth tiger’s friend. And spends the rest of the issue chasing the sabre-tooth through a changing, shifting Gotham and then rescuing them from 19th big game hunters, sharing a kiss with hunk from the past/hunk from the present, and seeing earlier and alternate versions of herself and then disappearing right off the comic page.

Before they steal a car that's still a modern car and drive off after the animal control van that turns into the carriage owned by a hunting lodge.

I also love what I’m going to call the Detective Catwoman outfit and it makes a very nice appearance (art-wise and number of panels) in this issue.

Catwoman gets a Wonder Woman rescuing Steve Trevor moment. Woot! Aside from this being an earlier in history version of the guy who was just hired to hunt her down.

It was a little difficult deciding what to mark for this cover, but the main problem with it really is the extreme leg stretches that seem to plague Balent heroes (and hero adjacent people – not quite sure what to call some of the people Catwoman was teamed with in the 90s). I am amused that Ash looks way more threatening and serious on the cover than he does inside. Not that he’s actually harmless, but he is the pretty boy for Catwoman to rescue (along with his sabre-tooth tiger friend).

And that’s it for now (universe ending/not ending, after all 😛 ). so, 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.
