Cover of Cat-Tales: Something BlueSomething Blue

This tale of Dick's Bachelor Party and Barbara's Bridal Shower doesn't have a lot of Bruce/Selina material, but it contains several elements that will be important to the series. It introduces many members of the Justice League (and their arrival and adventures in Wayne Tower are explored further in the sister series JLAin't), as well as allowing Poison Ivy to strut herself as a villainess. She greens all the men of the Justice League, including Superman (yet another pre-echo of Hush.)

On the women's side, Zatanna is introduced. She will appear later in Book 2 in Secrets and be seen no more before the pivotal events of Identity Element. Far more significant, Lois Lane is introduced, rightly resentful of the media suggeting a relationship between her and Superman. Indeed, none of the women and very few of the men think highly of Diana, finding her condescending and superior. It is highly suggestive that those who criticize this aspect of Cat-Tales are, without exception, condescending and superior Wonder Woman fans who attempt to lecture and filibuster any who don't share their views. Chris Dee has pointed out many times that Diana's behavior in Cat-Tales and JLAin't is perfectly consistent with her portrayal in comics, it is only the reaction of everyone else that is presented in a more realistic manner.


Like all Cat-Tales, Something Blue 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 2.
