DC Comics has released the final wedding covers with updated trade dress for Batman #50 and Catwoman #1. The Bat and the Cat ceremony begins on July 4 with the Dark Knight's extra-sized anniversary issue, before continuing into Selina Kyle's new ongoing series on the same day.
The cover for Batman #50 is pretty similar to the version revealed by DC Comics in April, with the only differences coming in the trade dress and a "You are Cordially Invited..." inserted at the bottom. The updated cover for Catwoman #1 features Selina considering whether to say "I Do" or "I Don't" while reminding fans to read Batman #50 first, or else take the risk of being spoiled by the contents of her debut issue.
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!
Batman #50 and Catwoman #1 go on sale July 4 from DC Comics.
