I'm not against drawing her like this:
BUT... the comic, any comic, shouldn't JUST rely on sex appeal to get by.
And the ending was just... ugh.
It needed a thicker story, some moral conflict, and a different angle on her psychological state.
Pffft... ANY psychological angle would've been nice.
But no we just get...
I haven't read these two issues. I was thinking about it, but after reading about them I really don't want to anymore. Still, I'd like to throw in my two cents....
These issues are the opening to a completely new relaunch, meaning you're suppose to be introducing the characters to new readers. That means you should make a good first impression with the character. And I think opening a series with your main character running around half-naked in bright red lingerie is a pretty crappy first impression. They could have introduced her a hundred other ways, fully clothed, without subtracting from her "hotness," --she's wearing a leather bodysuit for christ sakes-- while
showing off her personality.
And there is a good damn deal more to Catwoman's personality than just being a "sexpot." She a cat burglar for God's sakes. That means she has to be very smart, a good liar, and has to think fast. Then there's uniquely Selina personality traits. You know? The ones that keep Batman
interested in her? Again, I haven't read much about her, but general pop culture tells me she's very confident, daring, and of gray-morality (which can encompass a ton of other things).
It's one thing to draw Catwoman attractively and for her be flirty with a lot of aplomb and sex appeal--I'm all for that--but, as Nite Owl just said, you can't get by on that alone, and when you do
start focusing on only that, that's when problems start.
Also, from what I see this whole issue is just a lead up to Catwoman having sex with Batman on a roof, little else. You think they could have held off on the sex for at least another issue, or at least drawn it more tastefully.
