Comic Book Cats, number 165: Catwoman: When In Rome #3, drawn by Tim Sale, written by Jeph Loeb, lettered by Richard Starkings and colored by Dave Stewart, published by DC Comics in January 2005.

The six issue miniseries Catwoman: When In Rome featured some beautiful and highly-stylized artwork by Tim Sale, which was effectively complemented by Dave Stewart’s coloring. The cover to the third issue demonstrates Sale & Stewart’s ability to render actual felines, as we see a black & white tuxedo cat with Selina Kyle’s eyes hovering overhead symbolically.

Tim Sale’s earliest work in comic books was on an adaptation of the fantasy-adventure novels Thieves’ World published by Starblaze Graphics in 1985. He also drew several issues of Matt Wagner’s Grendel for Comico and the four issue political thriller Billi 99 written by Sarah Byam published by Dark Horse. Sale first collaborated with writer Jeph Loeb on the 1991 Challengers of the Unknown miniseries, and they have reunited on a number of occasions since then, including on several Batman-related projects.

This concludes the daily Comic Book Cat, at least for the immediate future. Thank you to everyone who has been following these posts for the last six months. After I recharge my batteries I will start doing these again. I hope all of you have a happy and healthy new year 😺
