Here are 2 more Catwoman pages, pencilled by me, inked by Rick Burchett, from Catwoman #9, pages 15 and 16. I'm posting them because they're my favorite pages from the 7 issues (5-11) that I illustrated. Page 15 is an example of my experiments with showing multiple events occurring simultaneously without crowding them into the same panel. In this case, I structured the panels as shattered glass, to echo Catwoman swinging through the window, too late to save Slam Bradley from the corrupt cop's bullet blast. In cinematic terms, think of montage, particularly Nick Roeg's rapid cutting in "Performance", slowing down time. On page 16, in panel 1, the rapid cutting resolves to a single moment of frozen or slowed time, the sort of film technique prevalent in these post-
Matrix days. Time speed returns to normal in panel 2 as the aftermath of Slam’s apparent murder plays out.
