Riddle Me-Tropolis

It wasn't exactly a throw away in Casefile 001, but the focus of the news of Batman coldly and methodically breaking Riddler's legs was on Batman's behavior, not Riddler legs.  Edward Nigma's perspective is somewhat different, and the story opens with him understandably fed up and ready to leave Gotham.  His life has certainly gone from bad to worse since the dream-come-true Eureka about of Batman's identity with the nightmare-on-wheels that the guy behind the mask is living with his best friend.  He decides he'd more...

Casefile 001

Comic books like to commemorate their 50th issue with something special and Cat-Tales chose to honor its central characters' comic book origins with a Crime Alley story for its 50th tale.  In the same way it paid off to wait several years before attempting Catwoman's origin story, it paid off to wait on a story delving into the most important event in Batman mythos.  more...

Blueprints begins with Batman still unsettled by the events of String Theory and frustrated that, even after the stay at Xanadu and the gesture of the Gotham Post sale, he is still haunted by the danger Selina was in during the crisis and his own inability to help her.  He realizes it is because all of the gifts and gestures he made are from the Bruce/Selina side of their lives, when it was Batman the Crimefighter who stood there helpless while Catwoman resolved the crisis.  more...

String Theory

The mindwipe and Batman's reaction to being assaulted by magic and fellow "heroes" of the Justice League was the inciting incident of DC Comics's Infinite Crisis, and the Cat-Tales parallel event String Theory.  The Universe-wide Reality-threatening mega-event that crosses all titles in a comic book universe is a staple of the genre, yet it can be off-putting to casual readers and non-fans of the medium.  more...
