Colleen Coover’s “Cat Ladies”: The Gingerbread Girl artist shares a commission of Catwoman and The Black Cat hanging out together. Odd, I always assumed those two characters would hate one another, but I guess they’re not as catty as I thought they’d be. ..

“The Problem with the New Teen Titans”: Ben Morse discusses DC’s difficulties in making the stars of Wolfman/Perez Titans work once Wolfman and Perez stopped doing them, comparing them to “the townies that graduate high school and then rather than go to college or move on, just hang around their old haunts trying to relive their glory days but often just coming off desperate.” He also suggests what DC should do with them. Simply not continually throwing them together every few years just to see that it doesn’t work and breaking them up for a few more years before trying again seems like the ideal place to start to me. I also agree with Morse that Wally West should totally be in the Justice League right now; in fact, it seems downright insane to me that he’s not.

You know who should draw Wonder Woman?: Richard Sala. One of my favorite pretty girl artists shares a rather old Wondy commission he did, featuring Dr. Poison and The Cheetah in the background. As great as Sala is at drawing pretty girls, he’s even better at drawing the sorts of colorful, creepy folks that composed Wondy’s original, criminally underused rogue’s gallery.
