Batman Returns

Catwoman Illustration by Christopher King

Illustration Friday’s theme of Whiskers led me down the path of Catwoman, and specifically Michelle Pfeiffer’s version of Catwoman from Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. After all the different Batman movies including Christopher Nolan’s excellent trilogy, Batman Returns remains my favourite (I could even say that Michael Keaton is my prefered Batman) with its festively dark atmosphere, political undertones and brilliantly designed characters including (aside from the S&M inspired Catwoman) Danny DeVito’s Penguin and Christopher Walken as Max Skreck.

I’m now taking requests for upcoming additions of the Comic Book Movie page, so if there’s an old favourite that you’d love to see re-created in comic book form let me know, and who knows, yours might be next! Anyone who’s suggestion is used will get a special mention on the site. In the meantime you can check out the ever-growing collection via official Comic Book Movies Page. Enjoy.
