Batman and The Cat



I had wanted to do a 100-Page Issue for this project since I started it. I used to love those special issues when I was a kid, there would be a new feature story and then the rest of the comic was jam packed with cool reprints. It was through those reprints that I was introduced to all the great characters and creators of past years, and I truly began to see the full scope of entertainment that comics had to offer.

I like that this cover hints at a long history of adventures with Batman and The Cat – hey, I think it is only natural, she really is his type if past girlfriends are any indication! The Cat was of course Greer Nelson, who later went on to be transformed into an actual she-feline and took on the name Tigra, thus making the leap from D-lister to C-lister. Her costume was later adopted by former model Patsy Walker, who went by the moniker Hellcat.

Actually, Ramona Fradon's work for issue #4 was never published. Instead, we got a fill-in issue (which turned out to be the series' last) from Jim Starlin and Alan Weiss. You might be thinking of Marie Severin?
Thanks for this mockup. They DO seem like a natural team.
