At least someone in comics is trying!


It’s a sad statement of how screwy comics can be that a Batwoman design featuring sensible shoes is being hailed as a breakthrough big deal.

Or maybe it’s just the timing.

  1. What’s so groundbreaking? DC has had the redesigned Catwoman with combat boots for about a decade now.

  2. I find this ironic, considering that the concept of a vigilante crimefighter wearing a spandex costume with a cape is so ludicrous. Boots add a touch of realism? C’mon, now. There’s a reason for the adjective “comicbooky.”

  3. Rach: Well, the reaction, for one. Though that’s mostly due to people being pissed over Marvel Divas, though.

  4. Well, I’ll give it credit for being more of a realistic design than most. It isn’t one-hundred-percent Sex Kitten at least.

    Clark: Normally I agree with the sentiment you’ve expressed, but Batman seems like a natural exception to me, if only because the cape is such a vital part of creating the image.
