Steal from Thieves with ‘Catwoman’ #32

It’s not easy being Catwoman. Hang on. Wait, that’s the exact intro we used for last week’s Batwoman preview. Well dangit, what are we going to write this week? Not to mention next week’s Ratwoman preview. (Hey, DC, are you publishing a title called Ratwoman yet? Call us, we have a great idea about this Gothamite who dresses up like a rat to both steal things and then catch herself in the act.)

An old Justice Society villain named Roulette has made her New 52 debut, and like always, she’s got a game she wants the capes and cowls to play. In her contests, she’s always the winner, because she makes her profits from that sweet betting and broadcasting action. So why’s Catwoman playing along? Because A) Ms. Kyle likes a challenge, and B) She hates Roulette. Also, C) she gets to race a hot rod through the desert. You don’t turn down opportunities like that. And possibly, D) she’s a double agent.

Only thing is, everyone else in this race is a dastardly criminal, so expect a lot of underhanded tactics. Also, there’s some coroner crime reenactment hijinx, for which we have thoughtfully provided you a variant cover.

(And may we just add what a pleasure it is to see Ann Nocenti writing comics again?)


Okay, we need a long talk about how seamlessly the Dodsons melted that three-faced bastitch in the back together.


In a race of thieves, is there a penalty for not cheating?


This is why you’ll never get flying cars, people.


Some people hate wearing leather bodysuits in the desert. Everyone’s got their peeves.


“By the way, what’s the world’s greatest thief doing at this inquest?”


You’ve been a Gotham coroner your entire adult life and you’ve never seen a necrophiliac? You lyin’.


Pulp kitten.

Sharpen your fangs and sink ’em into Catwoman #32, out this Wednesday!

Brendan McGinley is editor round these parts when not writing comics or Cracked columns. You can say a neighborly hello to him on Twitter @BrendanMcGinley. You’d probably enjoy his supervillain comic Heist, if you’re a fan of tarnished souls and brutal retribution. 

Down we go.

If you’re comparing yourself to WWII Germany, you might be the bad guy.

Brendan recently interviewed the Batman Eternal creators about how much fun they’re having and picked Pete Tomasi’s brain about Gotham.

Batman does what Batman wants.

They’re here to make a kickass Batman, and “Everyone Else is Boned.”
