This is the second time in a week that my comics beliefs have been shaken! I know, sounds unnecessary, right? It turns out to be a brisk, fun and entertaining cat and mouse chase across Gotham set over the course of one night.
Babs is written super-likeable, funny and charming, as she should be! I also really liked the Frank Quitely-esque solidity his art has. Well done, Fabian Nicieza????!?? Jun 09, Candice M tinylibrarian rated it it was ok. I was very excited when I read about this coming out as I love both Batgirl and Catwoman.
Instead of a cool battle between two strong, interesting female leads, however, it was more like some guy’s ok, fine, plenty of guys’ and some girls’ fantasy batmzn two hot chicks fighting over Batman.
While I’m sure that will appeal to many readers, it really disappointed me, as Batgirl and Catwoman were just relegated to auxiliary characters once again. View all 3 comments. The Cat and the Bat tells the story of how Batgirl and Catwoman first met.
Told from the point of view of both characters, the two engage in a cat-and-mouse game across Gotham to gain possession of Cohfidential Gordon’s secret notebook – a note book that can expose the secrets of batmna Gotham underworld and change the balance of power in the city.
This story is a hoot batamn beginning to end. Kevin McGuire’s expressive faces pair perfectly with Nicieza’s writing, presenting a green-behind-the-ears Ba The Cat and the Bat tells the story of how Batgirl and Catwoman first met.
Kevin McGuire’s expressive faces pair perfectly with Nicieza’s writing, presenting a green-behind-the-ears Barbara Gordon, in over her head in trying to take down Catwoman but still determined to do it. While not complex, it’s a good light-hearted chase story and reminds of a less dark chapter in the Dark Knight’s legacy. Jul 14, Kevin Wright rated it liked it Shelves: Forgive me as I parse through them.
As a fan of both Batgirl and Kevin Maguire, I remembered it fondly. I was so excited for this book when it came out in single-issue form back in because I was and still am a huge fan of artist Kevin Maguire, best known for his work on Justice League International just re-read this after 10 years has it been that long? Nicieza is a bit of a wild card for me. People whose opinions I respect have dismissed this book as sexist.
For example, I would argue that the scene where Batgirl strips down to chase Catwoman into a nude hedonist society gathering is just as revealing of her character. His argument was that, for the Joker, sexuality is a weapon, making him essentially pansexual, and he would be whatever made Batman the most uncomfortable.
Catwoman uses her sexuality or rather her comfort level with it to go where she thinks Batgirl is too demure to follow. By following Catwoman in, Batgirl proves to Catwoman and to herself just how far she will go to catch a criminal.
I can tell you that much. And, for the record, no one has confisential written the Cconfidential character better than Simone.
You demonize your enemies. In this story, Batgirl only knows Catwoman by confidentiak and what Batman has said about her and what Robin has told her about their inappropriate relationship. Batmxn putting the words in. Maguire, then, would sell not only the humor, but the humanity of the characters with his expressive faces and understanding of body language.
All in all, the Cat and the Bat is a pretty astute character study with some humor and some fantastic art. Jan 26, Lukas rated it liked it. An confidentiql read, if not fantastic. Nicieza’s humor, paired with Maguire’s art makes for a nice combination, although the facial expressions Maguire peppers throughout are the clear draw here.
It’s nice to see Batman, Catwoman, and Batgirl in vonfidential more humorous light, and one does have to credit Fabian with mixing the light moments with the confirential ones cnofidential. In the end, not a must read, but not a bad way to spend an hour or so. Aug 09, Mike rated it really liked it Shelves: Barbara Gordon has, ahem, “borrowed” her father’s secret confiedntial of Police Commissioner business, and it is stolen by Catwoman before she can break the code he has used to write it.
May 08, Nicole rated it did not like it. This comic was insultingly confidenntial blatantly sexist. Some authors see characters like Batgirl and Catwoman and write a story about human beings, with feelings and dignity, and stuff.
Some authors see characters like Batgirl and Catwoman, and think, “Girls have bodies, right? Let’s try to keep the focus on that.

There are the names of five different male people who all worked on this comic confidenttial apparently thought that the various convoluted ways that the two female characters have their clothes removed throughout the comic were acceptable and a good confidentiak.
Batgirl and Catwoman literally get completely naked and fight each other, and DC just went ahead stamped their seal of approval all over it. This story is definitely representative of how we feel about our female characters.
I’m sorry it was written. I’m sorry Bob Kane ever thought up Batman in the first place. Dec 01, JD Comics rated it it was ok. Didn’t really enjoy this graphic novel. The story was shallow and the dialogue was bad.
I’m also not a fan of the art, as well as the fight scenes. There were times when I didn’t even know what was happening in a panel. Muy divertido y ligero. May 17, Hannah Givens rated it liked it Shelves: I liked the bones of the plot, but the execution was super sexist.
Jun 28, Chad Jordahl rated it really liked it Shelves: Light and funny in a rom-com way. I liked this book more than I wanted to. Aug 20, Ronnie Jones rated it it was ok. A fun book but disturbingly sexist Read the full review here. Jun 09, Rachel rated it liked it. I didn’t like the first half, but the second part was very entertaining and well written.
The first part was pretty boring.
Batman: The Cat and the Bat (Collected)
Basically Cat Woman steals something from Bat Girl who stole btaman from her dadand they spend the entire time chasing each other across Gotham. This is all done with overly sexual poses and various stages of undress fully clothed, to full on nudity, to ripped up costumes.
There’s also some inner dialog from both parties that boils down to “OMG I can’t believe Batman hang I didn’t like the first half, but the second part was very entertaining and well written. The second half is way more interesting. We find out the reason Cat Woman stole the notebook, Batman shows up, and Bat Girl has to fight her way through Arkham Asylum and match wits with a particular villain.
I can’t say too much about the art. I found it uninspired and pretty flat. The artist relies on sexy poses in every other frame, and the overall composition is just And worst of all, the women look like men!

And I’m usually all for women with muscles, but this is not the case. Cat Woman and Bat Girl have wide shoulders, wide hips and no waist to speak of. They are drawn stocky and masculine, which is really odd as Cat Woman coonfidential one of the sexiest villains in the Batman universe, next to Ivy and Quinn.
