I probably like the aesthetic and persona of Catwoman more than anything. Emphasis on aesthetic, really because I’m
deeply vain a visual person.
I have read some Gotham City Sirens, it was pretty okay. Nothing really jumps out at me though other than my distaste for the art style. No knocks to Guillem March, he’s a wonderful illustrator, but his stuff is really not my thing. I’ve read some of the Catwoman series as well, and that was pretty ‘meh’ too.
Batman: Year One had some good Catwoman action, though, and so did Selina’s Big Score. I really liked the first few issues of the most recent Catwoman series, but that’s probably because Darwyn Cooke was involved.
I like Catwoman because she’s everything I wish I could be, physically strong, self assured, liberated and lives the way she wants. We also share a love of animals and wandering around at night in places ~ladies~ aren’t supposed to wander around at night, and a rather weak resemblance (She’s a woman with short dark hair? I’M a woman with short dark hair!).
Ironically, I have no great love for Bruce Wayne. I enjoyed Dick and Terry’s adventures as Batman than most stories involving Bruce.

One thing big board meeting approvals systems seem to get right in animation is the absolute necessity of diversity. While not perfect by any means, it is leaps and bounds better than this.
is that so much to ask for?
Though fans often cite Ghost in the Shell, Blade Runner and Alien as influences for BioWare’s Mass Effect universe, you might be surprised to hear that one of the developer’s biggest reference points is Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within.
Speaking in the latest Xbox World 360 magazine, Mass Effect 3’s art director Derek Watts discussed how the art team regularly draw inspiration from Square Enix’s ambitious CGI movie.
Although the movie was ultimately a huge -and very expensive - flop and even delayed the merger between Square and Enix, BioWare’s art team has looked to it when designing GUI, ships and environments.
“Yeah, you know we actually reference a lot from Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. We used a lot of their GUIs and the way they did their ship - that was kind of like in some of the early designs for the Normandy,” revealed Watts.
“Our attack helicopters are loosely based off that movie. There’s some great stuff, especially their glowing GUI screens; we used those a lot. I keep a folder of that stuff and I still actually tell the guys ‘just go back and look at that. Change it like that!’”
We’re a bit ashamed we didn’t notice this before.
Sources have indicated Mass Effect is set to feature a four-player co-op online mode with missions that are totally unique from the solo campaign.
Guess it all goes somewhere
And her girlfriend was worried about me putting the moves on said Old Roomie.
When asked, Old Roomie said her girlfriend “trusts me, but doesn’t trust you”.
After thinking about the implications I came up with two possible explainations:
A) I don’t actually fully trust you to be alone with another woman for a few days and not cheat, but saying that sounds bad, so I will blame my paranoia on the “other” in this situation.
B) This person is going to rape you.
