The Many Lives of Catwoman Moments, Week One: Origins, Romance, and Hip Lingo


In advance of my new book, The Many Lives of Catwoman: The Felonious History of a Feline Fatale, coming out July 1, I’ve been posting key Catwoman moments on Tumblr. I do one a day, randomly scheduled, to offer glimpses into the bizarre history of the character and take a peek at the important stories and moments I discuss in the book. It’s weird and informative and fun all around, and I hope you’ll check it out.

Last week, the five moments covered included:

And finally, my favourite moment of the week! You can see it at the top of the post. Batman #461 is an enjoyable issue, the second issue of a story in which Catwoman is essentially dared to steal an item and she does so anyway, knowing full well that it’s a trap. It’s also a rare early 1990s appearance for Catwoman, who had been largely sidelined since her dark reintroduction a few years earlier in  Batman: Year One. But the best part, as I point out in the post, is that it features Catwoman saying “Bye-eee!” It’s an expression that’s hip with the kids today, and it amused me to no end to see Catwoman saying it more than a quarter century ago. She was ahead of her time!

You can check out all of the posts here, and follow along for lots more in the weeks to come! Also, if you’re reading this and you’ve got your own Tumblr, let me know what it is in the comments and I’ll follow you back; it’s always fun to see what you all are into.
