Like Selina herself, Cat-Tales took what it wanted from the Batman franchise without asking. It could hardly resist the I Believe in Harvey Dent viral campaign that invited fans to live as a citizen of Gotham City, creating content, ratting out dirty cops, campaigning and voting in elections and even getting recruited by Jim Gordon to participate in a criminal sting if they interacted with the wrong website.
Cat-Tales launched its own collection of sites to play out alongside the official viral, telling its own story on its own family of websites. It began at FriendsofHarveyDent.org which launched on February 2nd (2/2) via a link on this story: I Believe in Harvey Dent. The tale stands alone, shouting out to many features of both virals but not requiring any knowledge or participation.
Beginning "I Believe in Gotham City" as Jeph Loeb's The Long Halloween began, it contains a greater homage to that work which also inspired The Dark Knight than to the movie itself, which of course Dee had no knowledge of.
There isn't much advancement of the Batman/Catwoman relationship after the opening scene, but there are a few rewarding throwbacks to episodes in TLH as well as a killer final twist regarding the Batmobile. There are also fine episodes where Bruce and Selina shine individually, and an important development to the titular Mr. Dent and the over-arcing story of Cat-Tales.
Like all Cat-Tales, I Believe in Harvey Dent 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 5.
