Along with a new ongoing series, Catwoman will receive a new costume, courtesy of writer/artist Joëlle Jones.
Ahead of the release this afternoon of the solicitations for August, DC has unveiled Selina Kyle's new costume, which will debut in in the pages of Catwoman #2. As that issue's cover offers only a glimpse, the publisher has released two illustrations by Jones that highlight details of the costume.
While Catwoman will remain draped in black, she''s dropped the goggles she favored for nearly two decades in favor of a more traditional cowl. It's a sleeker design that will undoubtedly evoke memories of Michelle Pfeiffer's costume from 1992's Batman Returns, only without all the extraneous stitching.
Announced last month, the new Catwoman series kicks off July 4, the same day Batman #50, and follows Selina on her wedding night as she attempts to catch a copycat burglar prowling the streets of Gotham City.

Gotham’s a toxic litter box for Selina Kyle of late, so she hits the road looking to clear the air, change her look and clear her name, too—there’s a copycat burglar swiping her M.O. who needs sorting out. In her hometown, Catwoman runs afoul of a crime boss who’s also hunting this impostor. Can the two declare a truce to hunt a mutual enemy, or will Selina end up just more roadkill?
