Package Description: “Frisky feline fatale Catwoman is the latest character to join the exciting new COVER GIRLS OF THE DC UNIVERSE statue line! With a pose straight from Adam Hughes’ cover of Catwoman #46, this statue features the coquettish cat-burglar standing atop a logo adorned base. This statue includes a 4-color Certificate of Authenticity and is packaged in a 4-color box.”

Other statues in the set include Power Girl, Wonder Woman, Black Canary, Zatanna and Harley Quinn. Personally, this one and Black Canary are my favorites.

An ass kicking never looked so good!

The comic series that this Catwoman statue is based on ran 82 issues (with #83 coming out next month as part of a Blackest Night tie-in) and began in 2002, with the final issue coming out in 2008. The creative team for the first two arc’s (up until issue #9) included Ed Brubaker as the writer with Darwyn Cooke on pencils. Here is the cover to Catwoman #46, which the statue is based on, drawn by Adam Hughes (Pete Woods drew the interiors) and written by Will Pfeifer:

Here's lookin' at you.

Without a doubt, Selena Kyle is one of the hottest female characters in comics. Everything about her has tremendous sex appeal, and this statue would look gorgeous in any collection.

    Those statues look fantastic! Really great work right there.

    The cover girl series seems to be looking real good so far I actually haven’t seen one bad statue in this line up.



  3. If I had $100 to spend, this would be a no brainer purchase for me. Catwoman and Emma Frost are my top femme fatales in comics!
