Catwoman Killed???

This sounds like another cheap shot, another way to weasel through a "turning point" in the drama of comic book storytelling. I was never a big Batman comics reader, and this sounds like a marketing gimmick. Personally, I preferred Lee Meriwether as Catwoman. And we can't forget Eartha Kitt and Julie Newmar either! These women put charm, and dare I say it, respectability in a character that I found kind of sleazy and ineffective in the comics.

Adorable Diabolical Damsels all!

Angelina Jolie is Tigress!

 Angelina is a true warrior. Fight on!

Lord, this must take courage to get this preemptive surgery, I tip my hat to Angelina. I freak out just going in for a checkup.

I have to admit: the first time I saw Kung Fu Panda was on a flight back to L.A. I don't like watching movies on a jet with headphones and the small screen overhead. But KFP kept grabbing my attention, and I kept watching it. Without sound, and the lousy monitors on the jet, I thought Tigress was a guy!

I regret not seeing KFP on the big screen. It was definitely on my DVD list when I got home.

Spam

My inner muse is feeling strident this morning, tired of all the crawlers and bogus websites sniffing around this blog. I would like to have real readers, but I'm also afraid of who would be attracted to this blog. The pretty female character is one of my outlets, but in the meantime, it's spam, spam, spam.


Spam and other meat by products manipulated in Photoshop.

No more sexy cartoon women


Another time, another place. The Cartoon Brew article or comments say practically nothing about the women's movement, women's rights or political correctness.

Where the Girls Aren't (in animation)

What are the roles of girls and women in animation? My perspective managed to catch Geena Davis' attention back in 2006:
