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.
