Catwoman Gets a Redesign

The late Darwyn Cooke's Catwoman design is pretty much the only costume design I've seen that's been hailed as damn near perfect, if not completely. It's stood the test of time through the New 52 and Rebirth, that is until now.

With her new series in the works, writer/artist Joelle Jones is taking her shot at giving Selina a new look and well... Yeah, Darwyn Cooke's is pretty perfect, huh? I don't dislike the new costume, it's just... you can't touch the Cooke design. This one definitely has more of a... fetish vibe, because Stjpan Sejic doesn't have enough goof shorts on his deviant art of DC heroes. The skin tight head piece, ears look more bat-like, lack of goggles, and armpits are points that stick out to me.

Also... maybe I'm reading between the lines, but that solicit seems like "I left my fiance at the alter now I need to get out of the city" sort of vibe... we'll seeeeeeee.
