Well, this is getting my hopes up
Full disclosure, I'm making a lot of fucking assumptions with this post, but whatever man, I'm desperate at this point. So get your tin foil hats out and get ready for conspiracy theories!
Above, you see writer/artist Tim Seeley of Hack/Slash, Revival and a bunch of other good comics, posing next to a Batman statute. He just posted this picture and it got me thinking... But first, let's back up a minute.
If you know me and my website, you know that I think Catwoman has been a pretty bad book for the past year, and given his strength at writing great female leads like Cassie Hack and Sara Pezzini, Seeley has always been on my mental wish list of people I'd like to see possibly take over that book. I've been on this for months, months, and Seeley has said on twitter and in response to that possibility being brought up in a Newsarama interview (which my post I just linked to above), that he'd be open to it.
Caught up? Good. Because that photo above is really getting my hopes up. Why? Well, ask yourself where a giant Batman statue next to a bunch of phone booths would be located? If you follow me on Twitter, you might know where I'm going with this, but I'll just cut to the chase: The DC Comics offices in New York. Not the California offices where the digital first stuff comes out of, the New York offices where New 52 shit comes from.
Now, I couldn't be sure, but I swear in my elephant like memory, I've seen pictures of the New York offices and that picture above looked very similar... Then I did some searching and came across this:
...Community reference coming in hot!
DO NOT FUCK WITH ME, UNIVERSE.
I can't handle this. I just can't.
This could be absolutely nothing. It could be something. I don't fucking know anymore! Like I said, I'm speculating, desperate for a change, and could be connecting dots that aren't there... but it's something!
