Today I wanna celebrate the new Catwoman comic series that started this week. Some great news: Not only that there IS a new Catwoman series after years of absence…she also has a new costume!
And I really like the new one! The goggles on the old costume never worked for me… they didn’t look good… they broke some times….and she had them on her forehead much too often, which ruined the disguise completely.
Now she has a real cowl again! It does look much better and she has a much more “complete” mask in my opinion. And the rest of the costume looks pretty good as well.
A little back story of what happened before the pages I show down below:
The police try to arrest Selina (as they think she is Catwoman 🙁 ) for two murdered cops. She escapes them and watches the news where they say that Catwoman killed these cops.
She wants to prove them wrong. And has now a different costume, so she clearly looks different from the Catwoman that committed the murders…

Well, besides the cool new costume…I love the idea with the copycats. Seeing so many CatwomEn…. really cool.
And I wonder how Catwoman will handle that situation…perhaps the copycats attack her and try to unmask her 😉
That would be something! And another run-in with the police would be interesting as well.
As promised, I wanna share my impressions from my first comic con in Dortmund yesterday.
As I understand it we didn’t have comic cons in germany before 2015. And now we have the “german comic con” in 4 different cities throughout the year.
In addition there is the “comic con germany” that is just once a year.
As I heard it was very crowded on saturday. Last year they used 4 big halls, and the folks had enough space. This year they put the con in just 2 big halls…
Well, I was there on sunday. It was crowded, but not on a really annoying scale.
I was hoping to see some Catwomen, Batgirls and other masked, female heroines and villainesses.
There were lots of lots of women/girls that did cosplays from japanese mangas… and lots of Harley Quinn’s. And there were a lot of female cosplayers that “did” Star Wars and Game of Thrones.
But regarding masked women from DC or Marvel… well I saw/noticed one Black Cat, two Batgirls, three Catwomen, one Spider-girl (unmasked) and some masked assassin from the Court of owls. I hoped for more… and no Batwoman, no Canary, no masked Spier-girl/Gwen, no Spoiler. Of course I was only there on one day and of course you can’t see every cosplayer.
I definitely need to improve on my handling of my photo camera and the “photographer” skills. But I will learn from that experience.
From the material I have I edited around 10 really short clips into one short video.
But let’s start with some pictures (nearly all masked women are in the video) :

And here comes MY self-filmed video:
In the video you should find 3 Catwomen and one Batgirl (my favorite cosplay that day).
And if you look closely, you will find a second batgirl, without cowl (not facing the camera)
*EDIT* You can see that Batgirl and more great cosplays in this official video at around 0:40:
Well, actually these were my first Batgirl/Catwomen that I saw in “real” life. And that was a pretty great experience. I will try to attend more comic cons in the future. And I’m pretty sure that then I can present better picture/video material. It would be great if there was a con just for DC and Marvel.
But -after all- it was a promising start…
Thanks to all the cosplayers! Great Job!
Feel free to comment!
Did you visited comic cons in the past? What are your experiences?
Well, I guess you may have heard already that Joss Whedon will direct an official DC movie with Batgirl in the main role.
For me that news hit me like a hammer. GREAT! GREAT! GREAT! Since ages I had hoped they would make such a movie…and then I read the news. I couldn’t believe it at first.
Ok, that movie won’t come out this year or next year. Perhaps 2019? But no matter when it will hit the screens…I am SO excited about it!
The last time I was so excited about a future movie was as TDKR was in planning and it was announced that Catwoman would be in it. I read every preview, watched every trailer a dozen times, tried to get as many pictures as possible. And Catwoman only had a small role in that movie. Her suit was great, but her mask was…pretty terrible. She did not have a secret identity at all, nearly everybody knew who was behind the mask. No unmasking action at all 🙁 .
That was really annoying for me! After all the anticipation I was a little disappointed at first after I left the movie theater.
However, despite all these facts, I love that movie and I love Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.
And now there will be a Batgirl movie 🙂
Batgirl was always my favorite heroine. And she will have the main part in that movie!!! I can’t imagine right now, how much more excited I will be when more facts to this movie will be released.
Who will be under that mask? Who will play this role and will (most certainly) become a legend for me?
How will the costume look? What about the mask?
What will the story?
Which villains will be in it? May be Catwoman? Or other hot villainesses?
Will they include other female heroine in it? Like Spoiler? Or the Huntress?
This movie has big potential to become my ultimate “hall of fame”-movie. I guess I will get some serious (heart-)problems when the first trailer is released…. 🙂
It seems like Whedon will take the Barbara Gordon-Batgirl version from the “New 52” Storyline. Great news! I want a serious batgirl movie and not that damn new “helmet”-batgirl version from the new comic run (that sucks btw.!).
Regarding the costume:
Let’s see how this epic movie will develop throughout the next months/years. I can’t wait for more news!
Hey folks, long time there was no new material “Masks off!”, my little “unmaskings in comics”-section.
Now I do have something.
The next gallery has all the catwoman/selina pictures from 2 comics, but check it out…
(click to enlarge it)
Well, isn’t that weird?
Bane seems to know who catwoman is. The recognise Selina with her wig on (she isn’t shown with it before…). The “unwig/unmask” her, put her in her Catwoman suit (?????? WHAT?!!!), tie her up, and in the next picture she is free again…. A lot isn’t shown in these comics.
Hmhmh, all pretty weird!
Now I wonder what happens next. Will Bane get revenge on her?
Perhaps he will rip her mask off…it’s only a slight chance, but that would be GREAT!
