If comic writers got the hunch that there might be a huge gay audience out there reading their works, then they were right! It seems as if they’ve got on over the past few years and more and more gay characters are being introduced! One as of recent, the more notable Catwoman!
In issue #39, writer Genevieve Valentine and artist Garry Brown confirmed her bisexuality with a liplock between Kyle and Eiko, the latest woman to take up the Catwoman mantle.
Following the issue’s release this week, Valentine took to her blog and wrote about what brought Catwoman to this moment and what she hoped to establish with this issue.
Valentine was very clear about what this moment meant for the character, explaining that it was intended to “establish… Selina as canon bisexual.”
“She’s flirted around it — often quite literally — for years now; for me, this wasn’t a revelation so much as a confirmation,” Valentine wrote.
I mean, there are just too many “pussy-loving”, “tunafish-eating” jokes just waiting for The Joker to crack here, so this should be good! “Catwoman” #39 is now available at retailers and online. That suit she’s wearing below is serving up some major power-lezzie season 1 of the L-word company-takeover vibes. I’m loving it.
