Batman and Catwoman are getting married, so it only makes sense that some of comics' biggest artists would celebrate the once in a lifetime event. And that's exactly what's been happening, as a seemingly endless series of special variant covers have arrived online over the past several weeks.
J. Scott Campbell is the latest A-list artist to throw their hat in the wedding issue ring, offering a series of five connecting covers through his official website. They may be less wedding-centric thematically than the other variants, but with an image that stretches across five comics, it's no less impressive.

A number of comics' biggest artists have already debuted their variant cover contributions to Batman #50, including Campbell's onetime Cliffhanger partner Joe Madureira, Joe Jusko, Mark Brooks, Frank Cho, Josh Middleton, Francesco Mattina and Dave Johnson, and Ale Garza, who created a cover showcasing Catwoman’s bridal party.
The solicitation for the issue reads, “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.”
Batman #50, written by Tom King and illustrated by a host of artists, including Mikel Janin and Joëlle Jones, goes on sale July 4 from DC Comics.
