Batman Comic: 'A Cat's Tale' by GarrettByers Batman Comic: 'A Cat's Tale' by GarrettByers
This 6 page short was created back in 2006 as a portfolio piece for my Sequential Art sample book. It was penciled and inked on legal size paper then colored and lettered in Photoshop. I can remember giving myself a set deadline and time frame to complete the pages and after hitting my stride finished the two week stretch with a few days to spare. The panel format chosen along with the art style was a deliberate choice as the main purpose in doing the short in the first place was to see if I could translate my style to match that of the last season of “Batman The Animated Series”. From the characters to the color scheme I worked hard to keep their designs on mark.
I was quite pleased with how it turned out and still enjoy it today.

You know, I think the only time I've ever seen him smile while wearing the mask is when he's around her. ... Aww! :love:

Don't any of the cops in Gotham know how to use their guns? They have a clear shot of Catwoman just as she is jumping off the roof and they let her get away. If I was a police officer in Gotham I would always be carrying an automatic rifle just for these kinds of moments. I wouldn't even yell stop, I would just open fire and aim for the legs.

Heehee I too love those Bruce and Selina moments! That was really what inspired me to do this. I love her playful teasing manner with him and how at times he he seems to want to just let go and run with her but he can't because, well Bruce is Bruce always right on the edge but never over it LOL.

Absolutely true. I think the end of the Hush saga was the best Bruce/Selina moment. =) Of course, my favorite Catwoman has been the recent, pre-DCnU version. Even seeing her with the Sirens helping people out, but not being a blatant villain, was good. I think that type of character balances out Bruce very well.

LOL Thanks! always like how in the Animated Series Selina had a strong stand for animal rights and this seemed like a nice little nod to that, in a simple fun way.
