Though I can't find out much about it, Dolman Magazine (Spain) seems to be a comics publication much like the recently-defunct Wizard Magazine, or the long-ago-defunct Hero Illustrated, and Guillem March has done a fair bit of work for them as a cover artist. About a week ago, the following gorgeous piece came to my attention:

Since first seeing this, it has rapidly climbed the ranks among my favorite pieces of Catwoman art and clawed its way up towards the top of the heap. Not only is the Batman Returns version of Catwoman one of my very favorite designs/interpretations of the character, the image is dripping with delightful symbolism and uses light and shadow on the wet-look vinyl suit in an unexpected way. I do so seriously dig it, don't you?

...Er. Funny, I'm currently reading the comicsalliance criticism of Batman Returns, and while I did always love the costume, the character interpretation...enh. Burton and his various pretensions at fantasy don't really do a lot for me.

But, of course, my final thoughts on that version of the character as a whole have already been said (http://youtu.be/mRZGwsAYIFA?t=2m41s) (wait until 3:00).

0_0 I love that picture! I also did like this version of catwoman it was the only reason I watched the film the whole way through, I wasn't too keen on the interpretation Burton did of it. However I really think he got catwoman right ^_^

now THAT is a sexy drawing of catwoman.


This is the back-up account for what I hope will be the Ultimate Catwoman Fan Blog--Dr. Von Fangirl on LiveJournal. You should go check it out over there. I much prefer the original article.
