Catwoman 80th Cover

Post by PDpuck16 »

From Comic watch...On April 15, 2020, DC will celebrate Catwoman’s 80th anniversary with a landmark one-shot, Catwoman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1. Since the character first appeared alongside Batman in 1940’s Batman #1, Catwoman has become an icon to millions of comic book fans. The undeniable magnetism between Batman and Catwoman has been one of comics’ most reliable constants: wherever Catwoman goes, Batman is sure to follow, if only to take her down.

That they didn't get Jim Balent to do one is an insult. Jim did more to bring Selina back to relevance in the 90's than any other artist, IMO.

That said, that J. Scott Campbell piece is purrrrr-fect...

The issue will contain a new "Catwoman '66" story. Here is a preview:

That "Catwoman of Earth" story looks like a lot of fun.

It's great to see Prof. Overbeck again. I have a TPB of the first 6 issues of the Batman '66 comic, but didn't follow the whole series. Was the professor a recurring character?

I think the "Catwoman" issue (mine with the 60s cover is on my pull list) misses Diamond's hiatus cutoff date by a week?

I did received the "Robin 80th Anniversary" issue from last week, and went for the 70s cover. It us gorgeous! While not "Batman '66", it does pay homage to the Mego action figures of the 70s, complete with title font from the old box art, Batman's Mego utility belt and Batgirl's shiny blue cowl.

Yes, he was. After his initial appearance in the Red Hood story, he also appeared in the Man From U.N.C.L.E. crossover miniseries and a later issue of the regular run involving the Batrobot.

Hope this isn't against forum rules, but the cover with the masked Julie is an exclusive available at J. Scott Campbell's website. Just an FYI, before anyone pays three prices for it on eBay.
