I was in a bunch of antique stores today, and found a bunch of your Catwoman covers. But this one, I had to get especially since the Lone Wolf and Cub homage. Love this one.

i'm searched high and low for catwoman vol 3 issue 57 (to those of you not paying attention, the follow up issue to this one, with adam hughes as the cover artist.)

the reason behind searching high and low for issue no 58 was my love for zatanna working with zatanna (for those of you interested in getting issue 58, it's nowhere to be found on the internet... anywhere, BUT there is hope: if you look for catwoman, book 5: the replacements, you can get vol 3 issue 57 and 58, hopefully including the fantastic covers of mister adam hughes.)

anyway, since i bought the catwoman book 5: the replacements... i think that's right, don't quote me on that... gosh my memory is rubbish. however, i gave my copy, that i found in a favorite comic shop in levittown, PA (i'm from rydal, PA, in case you're wondering how far and wide your fans are), to a very good friend/general partner in crime, doug (he's on deviantart, and is the reason i know about your amazing work: his handle on DA is if you're curious.

thanks for creating such beautiful cover work! next to pascal campion and abigail larson (neither of whom are comic artists, that i know of), i follow you closely, so whenever there's new work, i'm always excited!

and when i save up for it, i can't wait to buy your book that has all of your cover art.

from a fan outside of philly,

I love this picture!!! It reminds me of my wife and my son. they look the same. Great work!

Lone Wolf! That's cool! I saw this reference when they procure that comment. He knew his work in PowerGirl and Wonder Woman. But now I became a fan. I have been at least 1 hour looking at your gallery. You're an excellent artist. If you came in RioComicon would be great! Sorry my Googlish.

boyalbo Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011

Ahh, no matter how you look at it, all us mothers are that protective if not more of our babies!

This is great and rather funny!
You are one of the few artist that actually can draw children and make them look like children. Well done as always! :)

I adore this piece!!!
Rodimus78 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010
That's an ingenuous homage to Lone Wolf & Cub Adam. I can picture Logan like that, but never Selina. Very well done.

Lone Cat and Kitten?

(it was either that of Kitty Litter of Death...)
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2010
I called it 'Lone Wife and Kid'...
TaraLJC Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2010
...and yet even wielding a spoon, Selina could totes kick ass :) I only just noticed the slippers, too. Nice.

Lol. She looks like she'd be a strict mother. XP
imaginary-wanderer Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2009
so pleased I found this on DA!
really enjoyed it in whichever edition of Spectrum I saw it in (they all run together somehow, I don't remember which one had this). I think it's the expressions. I keep looking back at it :)

Here she really looks like Audrey Hepburn, and the parody is great also with the hairdo and the clothes on the kid :D

I'm a big fan of your art Mr. Huges :) You made for a friend in a con in Madrid one of the best star Wars jokes ever :P

I saw this drawing for the first time in a magazine, and I just loved it. It's beautiful.
Btw, I live in Brazil. XD
chaosbringer99 Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Um... It might just be me but I really don't get what's going on here...

She's in a bathrobe and slippers holding a wooden spoon and there's a baby in a stroller... indoors?

Ok. If she's indoors why is the baby in a stroller...? Secondly what's with the wooden spoon while wearing a bathrobe?

Did she like... get out of the shower, go to the kitchen to stir the pasta or whatever, then turn around to threaten beating an infant with a wooden spoon?

I'm a little baffled by the situation...
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2009
I don't blame you!

The cover is a take-off on the classic LONE WOLF & CUB characters. In CATWOMAN, Selina had a baby, so when I handed in the cover sketch for this issue (which was a different idea), I also sent a gag sketch of Selina in a bathrobe (which looks like samurai robes) holding a spoon (where the handle of a samurai's sheathed katana would be) and her baby in a stroller (the baby in LONE WOLF was usually depicted in a pram or cart). I just did it as a gag, but the CATWOMAN editor LOVED it, and they made me draw the joke cover.

Again - NOT MY IDEA.

Lesson learned: NEVER send in a gag sketch you aren't prepared to do as a full cover....

ahaha such a cute homage to Lone Wolf and Cub! I actually thought that's what it was when I saw the thumb in your gallery!
lilin1988 Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
XD I have this number of catwoman! The face of Helena is comic and Selina is just...a typical, sexy, mother XDXD
