1993-2001: The Second Series Comics
The Jim Balent era
1993 saw the beginning of the real Catwoman comic book series. It had a distinct look, thanks to the efforts of Jim Balent. For much of this time, she was featured in a purple Cat-suit, with long boots, long hair flowing out, and a devil-may-care attitude. She was also drawn by Mr. Balent as a woman with a figure to make any woman jealous.
Not only was there the comic book series, but there were also annual issues published and, in 1997, an issue with Catwoman and Vampirella, Catwoman Vampirella Furies.
This comic book series came to an end in 2001, with issue #93. By this time, Catwoman/Selina Kyle is facing conflicts within herself, and tries to perform one last caper. She runs afoul of Deathstroke the Terminator, and a destructive battle ended with the world believing Catwoman to be dead.
She certainly appeared to be dead.
Or was she?
