DC First Look: ‘Batman/Catwoman’ #1 coming December 1, 2020

The much anticipated 12-issue Batman/Catwoman series is by Tom King, Clay Mann, Tomeu Morey, and Clayton Cowles.

DC Comic has revealed Tom King, Clay Mann, Tomeu Morey, Clayton Cowles’ much anticipated Batman/Catwoman series is now on the way for December. Batman/Catwoman is a crime story told across three timelines and a return to the romantic saga of Bat and Cat which began in King’s Batman ongoing series. Possibly the biggest news is how the Phantasm aka Andrea Beaumont will be featured in the series and we get to see the character for the first time today!

So what’s it about?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Gotham City. Today. Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle have rekindled their long-running, on-again, off-again relationship. Believing all obstacles are removed from their path, they once again begin operating as a duo in their secret lives: Batman and Catwoman working together to fight crime. In Batman/Catwoman, a crime story told across three separate timelines,Tom King, Clay Mann and Tomeu Morey return to the romantic saga of Batman and Catwoman, continuing the story they began in the pages of Batman!

Batman/Catwoman

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.

Batman/Catwoman

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.

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?
