September post # 22: The Disappearance of Catwoman

Since "Gotham" is starting tonight, I thought I'd do a post about how comic book censorship kept Catwoman out of the pages of DC comics from 1954 to 1966:

"The Catwoman had been a regular foe of Batman's since her first appearance in Batman #1. While not appearing as frequently as the Joker, she did pop up in at least 19 stories between 1940 and 1954, so roughly once a year the readers could count on another Catwoman story. But Detective #211's The Jungle Cat-Queen was her final appearance for almost a dozen years...."
