The recent issues of Tom King’s Batman series have been leading up the big moment in the fiftieth issue–the wedding of Batman and Catwoman. If you read this week’s Batman #49 (reviewed here), you know Joker is trying to put a stop to things.
It appears things may not be quite as bad as they seem–at least according to the cover of Batman #50. Although, the cover to the upcoming Catwoman #1 suggests we shouldn’t necessarily throw away our gift receipts for the happy couple’s wedding.
Check out the two just released covers below.
It’s the wedding you never thought you’d see! The Batrimony is real as Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle are set to tie the knot in a can’t-miss, extra-length milestone issue that will reshape Gotham City. All their friends (and a few enemies?) will be party to a comic book coupling for the ages. Superstar scribe Tom King officiates the sure-to-be-offbeat nuptials, joined by an all-star lineup of guest classic Bat-artists doffing their hats to the lucky couple in a series of pre-wedding flashback scenes sure to set the romantic mood.
The wedding night’s barely over, but Catwoman’s back on the streets, this time to expose a copycat who’s pulling heists around Gotham City. As Selina cracks the whip on her former criminal cohorts, she’s attracting unwanted attention from one of Gotham’s most dangerous groups. The mob? Nope. Try the GCPD. And as if the Bat-Bride didn’t have enough problems, don’t miss the debut of an all-new villain determined to make trouble for all nine of Selina’s lives. Don’t miss the start of an all-new monthly series written and illustrated by Eisner Award-nominee Joëlle Jones!
What do you think of the covers? The bigger question is: Do you think they’ll actually get married?
