SyFy Collector Intervention highlights Catwoman Collector

On August 14th, the Collector Intervention series premiered on SyFy - starting with an episode featuring a character collector obsessed with Catwoman.  I want his collection!  He has all the comics, statues, action figures... sigh...

Plus his wife lefts him display some pieces in the house, starting with a wonderful Catwoman and Batman print.  He even has a Catwoman music box, IN THE BOX! Wow!

I have a couple questions for Mark - do you collect original art?  What's your favorite version of Catwoman?

Here's Newsarama's coverage

Arkham City game - co-starring Catwoman!

Comic Book Resources, among other sources, reported exciting news about the next Arkham game - it will feature Catwoman as a playable character! The trailer for this game looks amazing, I can not wait for this game to come out later this year!

New Catwoman Series coming in September!

Comic Book Resources interviewed Judd Winick regarding his work on his relaunch titles for DC's 52. I am not familiar with Judd's work, but am mildly excited about Guillem March being the artist on this title. His covers to "Gotham City Sirens" were at times stunning, and he certainly has a talent for illustrating sultry vixens. I would have loved for a return by Cover artist Adam Hughes, but that was too much to hope for.

Just one more comment regarding Guillem's cover art... I feel that Jim Balent gets a ton of flack for his 'sexy' version of Catwoman. I find such charges laughable, since everyone from Jim Lee to Guillem has taken Darwyn Cooke's functional design for Catwoman, and sexied it up with skin tight latex and cleavage. Even the new Arkham City game has Catwoman unzipped, giving Power Girl some competition in the 'distracting costume' department.

Catwoman costume in Batman Live production

Look - it's Catwoman ('00's style) from the "Batman Live World Arena Tour", the stage show produced in London. Looks like a very nice cosplay version of the costume, plus they have a Poison Ivy and Harley. Great shot of her in action above, and below with her Gotham cronies.

I already like that they are keeping the characters close to DC Style guide, unlike Marvel's POS Spider-man Turn off the Dark. I missed all the publicity during Spider-man, I wonder if DC learned from Marvel's mess up.

1966 Topps Catwoman Foldee

Just found this auction for a Catwoman "Princess of Plunder" Foldee! I love finding kitschy 60's paraphernalia. This seller has a bunch of other Topps Comic Book character Foldees listed. I really need to update my "Catwoman" ebay search to filter out all the Halle Berry movie junk - cards and DVDs from that movie are flooding my search results - making it hard to find the Good Stuff!
