I should really save this one for my actual birthday tomorrow because I love it so much, but I can't wait.
So Batman needs to lure Catwoman into a trap. And the only way he can think to do this is to disguise himself as a wealthy, diamond-covered Southern belle.
I think he was just looking for an excuse. Like, he probably could have just strolled into the hotel as Bruce Wayne with a Rolex, but whatever.
Let's see Bruce in action:
I don't know what I love more, how he looks or how he's talking.
I can't stand it. He/she totally looks like a dude, too. Look at that jawbone!
And the best part is yet to come...
First of all, I like that Bruce is keeping the act up with Alfred while they are alone in their hotel room. Secondly I can't get enough of that panel of Bruce sans wig, but still wearing make-up and jewels. Isn't he pretty? Thirdly, I can only assume that he was wearing the Batman costume, minus the mask, under the dress. Or else Bruce just took a long break in the middle of that train of thought to change his clothes between the second and third panel.
All panels from Batman #266.
