Comic Book Cats, number 62: Detective Comics #612, penciled by Norm Breyfogle, inked by Steve Mitchell, written by Alan Grant, lettered by Todd Klein and colored by Adrienne Roy, published by DC Comics in March 1990.

Corky and T.C. prowl the streets of Gotham City, snatching up stray cats to sell to research laboratories. The two unscrupulous teenagers are in for a shock, though, when they happen to drive their van past a four-way encounter between Batman, Catwoman, Catman and a very hungry six hundred pound Siberian tiger. Catwoman sends Catman falling to the street below, where he slams into Corky and T.C.’s truck. They pull over to find out what happened, but as soon as they open the back door, the cat’s out of the bag, literally, as the captured strays take the opportunity to make a break for it.

Reading comic books in the late 1980s and early 90s, I came to regard Norm Breyfogle as one of the all-time great Batman artists. Breyfogle, paired with inker Steve Mitchell, did a superb job drawing Alan Grant’s imaginative scripts. This story was a good demonstration of Breyfogle’s artistic flexibility, as he rendered scenes both grim and comedic.
