Batman/Catwoman (DC Comics)

DC set to release BATMAN/CATWOMAN #1 in December

DC COMICS has revealed that the long-awaited first issue of Tom King's BATMAN/CATWOMAN series will drop on December 1, 2020.

The wait is finally over! DC Comics has confirmed that writer Tom King’s long-awaited Batman/Catwoman #1 will hit comic book stores on December 1, 2020.

The twelve-issue series will be taking a look at the 80-year romance across three different timelines. There’s the past, when The Bat and The Cat first fell in love. Did they meet on the street? Or was it on a boat? Rooftops, ramparts and gargoyles, and over 80 years of fans that have read their comics, are their only witnesses.

There’s the distant future, where after a long and happy marriage Bruce Wayne has passed away. Selina Kyle decides to settle an old score without having to worry about the Batman objecting. Catwoman is serving a very cold dish: Revenge.

And in the present, Bruce and Selina’s union is threatened by the arrival of one of Batman’s past flings, Andrea Beaumont, a.k.a. Phantasm. Beaumont’s return calls into question how each character chooses to operate in their costumed, and personal, lives, and any move by Phantasm could change the fate of Bruce and Selina’s future.

Take a look at these stunning previews of the main cover art by Clay Mann plus variant covers by Travis Charest and the team of Jim Lee, Scott Williams and Alex Sinclair. 

The only other person besides Bruce and Selina to have been along for the whole ride has been the Joker, and what he did in the past is going to have direct consequences on today and tomorrow. Batman’s greatest foe will intervene any time Batman and Catwoman try to take steps towards peace—he already robbed fans of a Bat/Cat wedding celebration! Any change in the Caped Crusader’s life will be matched with the chaos of the Clown Prince of Crime…

…and the Joker’s not leaving any witnesses. Not even a gargoyle. Will Selina make good on her final kill?

Batman/Catwoman, by Tom King, Clay Mann, Tomeu Morey and Clayton Cowles, edited by Jamie S. Rich and Brittany Holzherr, will launch a 12-issue run on December 1, 2020, with a cover by Mann and Morey and a variant cover by Travis Charest plus a variant cover by Jim Lee, Scott Williams and Alex Sinclair. New issues will ship monthly with a skip month planned for a Batman/Catwoman Special in June 2021, and the series will carry DC’s Black Label content descriptor, indicating content appropriate for readers ages 17+.
