They both have long faces, with square jaws and big teeth. All in all, the Cat and the Bat is a pretty astute character study with some humor and some fantastic art.

Not the greatest series Batman Confidential and bztman 18 is really bizarre with its fight between Catwoman and Batgirl in the buff. It was great to see that up against Catwoman – everything Batgirl wants to be except on the wrong side of the law. This comic was insultingly and blatantly sexist. The artist relies on sexy poses in every other frame, and the overall composition is just Utter sexist rubbish designed to bahman Batgirl and Catwoman in “sexy” poses.



I’m sorry it was written. Fine fanboy fun and very appealingly drawn. This was a lot of fun. Babs is written super-likeable, funny and charming, as she should be!

This is one of those Batman comics that you always wondered if they existed. We once again get a good grip sorry of why Batgirl was allowed to continue being Batgirl; she is feisty, well trained, and strong.
