#Drawvember Day 11: A Supervillain
There are dog people and there are cat people.
Within the subset of cat people, there are cat people and CAT PEOPLE.
Selena Kyle is the all-caps kind.
Sleek, smart, sneaky and sexy, she turned the comics code on its ear back in 1954, and has kept the boys of the DC Universe running after her like a pack of lovesick puppies ever since. She uses her stealthy feline attributes to liberate the world’s most priceless artifacts and baubles from their rightful-but-boring owners, so cover up those family jewels, boys!
Drawvember #3: My Most Recent Dream
After a fight in the outskirts of Gotham, Batman needs to get home ASAP. He takes a taxi to his penthouse apartment.
The taxi can’t go in the special secret bat entrance, so it drops him off at the front door.
In the lobby, he is stopped by the doorman who asks him to sign in. Batman has never used the public entrance to his building and has no idea what his apartment number is. #problemsofthe1percent
I didn’t get much sleep last night, so today’s posts might be a bit tweaked.

French designer Nicolas Obery has given a few well-known comic book characters a stunning new look to match his uniquely rendered Fantasmagorik series of illustrations. Check out more of his stylized work at Behance.net.
You’ve got three minutes, right? Use them to watch The Batman of Shanghai!
BATGIRL (AND FRIENDS)
When does cosplay become continuity? The best characters take on a life of their own. Between pages. Between scenes. A good myth like “Batgirl” is just a facade anyhow. A starting point. Barbara Gordon can slip on the mask just like Yvonne Craig. When you’re lost in a good book, isn’t it really your own voice you hear speaking the lines? Fans and characters are part of the same equation. Just because it wasn’t on-panel doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.
