If you're at work, don't even scroll down. The preview image isn't even work safe!

So, on the Batman: Year One DVD that hits stores next Tuesday, a Catwoman short in the tradition of the other DC Showcase shorts that accompanied some of the new DC animated films (like Green Arrow/Black Canary, Jonah Hex and The Spectre), written by Paul Dini will be included.

According to Dini's own LJ: No, I didn't work on the ultra-cool animated adaptation of the classic Batman story, though I DID script a fifteen minute bonus CATWOMAN short included in the package. I just saw the finished piece for the first time last night. It's quite amazing.

News has been spreading across the internet of that short's contents. Thus far, all we know is that Catwoman poses as a dancer at a gentlemen's club during a diamond heist, and does a strip tease during the course of the adventure.

There's certainly nothing wrong with being an exotic dancer (hi, I learned how to breathe fire from one--AND BY THE WAY, never teach a thirteen year old girl to breathe fire) and certainly nothing wrong with Catwoman being one, but in light of Catwoman's highly sexualized and objectified turn in Winick and March's Catwoman #1, it's a little troubling that in the very next high profile thing she's in after that hit shelves, she's losing her clothes again. If the scene serves a purpose and it's not meant solely for the titillation of the heterosexual male audience, thus turning Selina into an object for the second time this month, great! I'll love it! If not...

Well...I have my suspicions that she's using this as a means of escape/distraction, and the use of the whip during her act would leave everyone off guard for when she actually unleashes hell. The animation also looks like it's going to be really pretty when it's not in choppy gif form.

However, I may be in the minority when I say this, but as a longstanding fan of both characters, at no time should Catwoman have gotten her wardrobe tips from Vampirella. Because I love you and all, Vampi, but...no.



We'll see how this turns out.

In the meantime, I'm going to watch the official advance digital copy of Batman: Year One I've got, and be back later tonight with a review of how that turns out.

Please don't screw up one of the best Batman stories ever, please don't screw up one of the best Batman stories ever, please, please, pleeeeease.
