The love story of the Bat and the Cat has proven to be one of the shining spots of the Rebirth era. While writer Tom King has been filling in the blanks of Batman and Catwoman's relationship in recent months, there remains at least one crucial step in the couple's relationship that has gone unexplored -- until now.
In November, King will team with artist Lee Weeks to reveal a new story set in the Dark Knight's past, as the creative team tag along to detail what happened the first time the two went on a date. The Annual's solicitation text may offer one hint of what to expect, however, as it seems to have very deliberately made a point of referring to them as Selina and Bruce rather than Catwoman and Batman, indicating that the costumed duo first got romantic without the masks.
Check out the cover and solicitation text for Batman Annual #2 below.
BATMAN ANNUAL #2
- Written by TOM KING

- Travel back in time with us to see the early days of the Bat and the Cat. What was Bruce and Selina’s first date? How did this rivalry blossom into romance, and then go right back to being a rivalry again? Tom King reteams with his BATMAN/ELMER FUDD collaborator Lee Weeks to show us a little young love with capes and cowls. And a little crimefighting, too.
