Falling behind, but I wasn't going to go deep on this issue anyway.


From 2000, the Batman Chronicles #20, featuring stories from Devin Grayson, Scott Beatty, and Ian Edginton; and art by Yvel Guichet, Dean Zachary, Mshindo, and more. Featuring three team-up stories...and no Batman! Catwoman meets the Weinbergs, of the Relative Heroes miniseries; who I'm not entirely sure I heard of before stumbling into this issue. As Catwoman helps the kids get away from the D.E.O, she also gives a little advice to the young Temper, who isn't really sure if she's not more super-villain than hero.

In the second story, at Tim Drake's private school, class photo day is made far more interesting when the photographer is former superheroine-slash-model Jade. Tim tries to dodge her, since he had been extra-protective of his secret identity at the time; but as Robin helps her out against some prep school thugs. (That kind of gets skeevy, when their assault on Jade seems like it's going to go dark.) Finally, Nightwing teams-up with the Peter David-era Supergirl, against some human traffickers.

A pretty inessential issue, then; but when they only run me a dollar or so, I'm pretty forgiving.

Never heard of the Weinbergs or that series. I saw those covers though. Ewwww, damn those outfit designs were/are ugly!

I wonder if that's intentional: this ugly costume might be exactly what a kid that age would design...
