Writer Tom King dropped a bombshell inside the pages of Batman #24 when the Dark Knight proposed to his longtime love interest/nemesis Catwoman. While fans have to wait until the flashback tale "The War of Jokes and Riddles" concludes for Selina Kyle's response, King has released a piece of artwork teasing her answer.

The writer shared the image with the message, "Meanwhile, in Batman 32. Catwoman is giving her answer." The black-and-white art, by Mikel Janin, comes from Batman #32 and shows the Bat and Cat's alter egos of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle in what looks like a tender moment, with Bruce caressing and kissing Selina's left hand. The real mystery is whether this takes place before or after Catwoman's made her decision on marrying the Batman. Is this a kiss of joy, or sadness? Your guess is as good as ours.
"The War of Jokes and Riddles" is running through Batman #25-32 and follows Bruce as he recounts to Selina a turf war between the Joker and Riddler in his early days as Batman. Before the story arc wraps up, Bruce will reveal to Selina a deep, dark secret that he's kept only to himself.
Batman #32, from writer Tom King and artist Mikel Janin, goes on sale Oct. 4.
