Cover of Cat-Tales: BlueprintsBlueprints

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.  He comes up with a way to reach out as Batman, which leads to an absolutely delicious Batcave scene, the naming of the bat Walapang, and a fascinating glimpse into the cat burglar's world of art theft and jewel theft. 

Then Poison Ivy returns to Gotham, which sets off the first major extended arc of the Batman/Catwoman relationship in the new 'Fuck the Post' era of Cat-Tales.  I have been asked not to include any spoilers for this tale, so I will merely say that several elements are introduced, including a character and a hitherto unknown secret of the Batcave, that will be with us for a long time and erase any doubts that Cat-Tales has the chops to sustain itself without DC Comics stunts to respond to.


Like all Cat-Tales, Blueprints can be read online on the Cat-Tales website or mobile mirror, and can be downloaded as an ebook or pdf, which is sized for printing at Cafe Press. It is collected in Cat-Tales Book 4.
