CATWOMAN #04 (more) unseen pages

As I promised yesterday, here you have 4 pages that were never published.
Some people will say they were censored, but that´s not exact. The new pages were not a toned down version of these, they were telling another story. Actually, we had a big turning point here that could have changed the whole book from this point: Selina knows who Batman is. You don´t need ballons to get that from yesterday´s pages..
 Maybe DC didn´t want to explore that storyline, so it´s not that obvious that the new pages were drawn just to remove the sexy content. It´d have been much more easy to censor these pages than having to redraw them all.
 
This is the funny thing: who knows?

Somebody asked why am I showing this stuff now: I´m not going to keep them secretly in a drawer until I die, and I´m not going to burn them, right?
I´m doing a selection of original art for sale and if I don´t show them, the buyer will anyway, so...
 
Btw, some of the little panels strategically placed over Selina´s body were drawn separately. Maybe I´ll post a scan of the original art tomorrow. Ha, ha, this is a dirty trick to get more pageloads. Why do I need pageloads? I don´t know, I have no ads!
 
Ah, these pages never got colored. The decision to change the story came in the gap between inks and color.

It seems a naked Catwoman helps getting pageloads.

CATWOMAN #03 unseen pages.

The pages below were supposed to be pages #16 to #20 from Catwoman #3. This has been one of the few times I´ve been asked to redo pages. Actually I was asked to draw some new pages from a new piece of script. I got an explanation about why DC wanted to change the story and get some new pages done, but I guess it all have to do with the sexy depiction of Selina in these original pages. I didn´t mind at all, since it wasn´t my fault and I got paid for the extra job. The only thing I don´t like is to work on stuff that remains unused.
 
So I´m showing these pages now, but I must confess I don´t like them at all. I don´t like how Selina looks like when she´s naked. Both the body and the face. I´d like to think today I´d do a much better job, and a bit more classy. The colored pages look much better thanks to Tomeu Morey.
Anyway, this is only an artwise issue I have. The action in this scene was a depiction of who Selina was: a woman taking advantadge of her sexuality to get something from a man. That made sense according on how the character had been approached in the earlier New52.
 
That´s it. 4 more pages were kept unseen from issue #4, come back tomorrow.
