Catwoman #1 has been out for just one day, but it’s already caught quite a bit of attention for the, ahem, climactic scene between the title character and Batman. Newsarama reached out to Catwoman writer Judd Winick for comment on the book’s vocal reception, which follows below — and while you’re at it, why not check out our Catwoman #1-inspired countdown of 10 shocking superhero hookups?

This is a Catwoman for 2011, and my approach to her character and actions reflect someone who lives in our times. And wears a cat suit. And steals. It’s a tale that is part crime story, part mystery and part romance. In that, you will find action, suspense and passion. Each of those qualities, at times, play to their extremes. Catwoman is a character with a rich comic book history, and my hope is that readers will continue to join us as the adventure continues.
