This week, DC released their solicitations for September, and with them, the eyebrow-raising art for Catwoman #0, in which artist Guillem March -- an artist we're generally pretty fond of here at ComicsAlliance -- poses the title character in a way that we can charitably refer to as "anatomically dubious." Featuring a high-angle shot of Catwoman in which her face, breasts and butt are on display at the same time (plus a single foot, for those of you who are into that), it honestly loo
