I’ve never seen the Showtime series of the same name, but if it’s anything like Penny Dreadful #1 then I’m going to have to track the first episodes down and subscribe to it immediately. Truth be told, I never knew it had anything to do with the gothic novels of yesteryear; that alone is enough to get me interested.

Abandoned ‘Catwoman’ Plot and Artwork Had Her Strolling Naked Through Wayne Manor
  |  

Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, has always been one of the sexier characters to inhabit the Batman universe, and artists never miss an opportunity to take full advantage of her skin-tight catsuit.

There’s much more to the story including Dick Grayson’s lineage and an all out assault against the Wayne family and other leaders of Gotham City. It’s a war of Bats vs. Owls when most of the Bat-family is called upon to participate.
