Franco-Belgian / Euro Comics General + New Wake!
200 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Post anything about Franco-Belgian or Euro comics here! We haven't had a general of this sort in a long time, because there's rarely enough interest to keep them going continuously, however today I've set one up to accommodate my current plans.
You see, I've paused work on the retranslation of the old books of Wake to jump ahead to book 17, which has as of yet never appeared in English. If you've only been following my translations of Wake, then reading this book will contain spoilers for stuff that hasn't happened yet! However, for those that have already read Wake's original translations or who have read Wake in another language, I'll be posting my progress in this thread so you can get your hands on the story faster. Whenever I finish a page, I'll put it up here.
In the meantime, feel free to discuss other European comics and peruse the scanlator folders here:

I'm doing a presentation on the female Batman villains for a school project and I need to write a summery of Catwoman's origin story. I've already written it, but I thought I'd run it by you guys to make sure it's accurate enough.
Like most comic book characters Catwoman has had several different backstories due to the existence of several different universes and reboots within DC comics so we will stick with the most commonly accepted origin for her. Catwoman was born by her real name Selina Kyle. At a young age her mother committed suicide and her father died from his alcoholism. Selina was then sent to the Sprang Hall Detention Center, but eventually escaped. After this she attempts to pickpocket a crowd at a carnival, but is caught by the man who owns the carnival. He then offers Selina a job at the carnival which she accepts. While working at carnival she learns skills such as contortionism, gymnastics, magic (slide of hand not actual magic), and trickery. Learning all of these skills would help to improve her skills as a thief. After the owner of of the carnival dies Selina goes back to being a thief which will eventually lead to her becoming Catwoman once she growns older.
