The last we saw Batman, he and fiancée Selina Kyle were about to meet Bruce Wayne's old flame Talia al Ghul in the middle of the desert. One could assume the Bat and the Cat traveled across the world to make amends, but judging by the cover for Batman #35, regardless of their intentions, things don't go so smoothly.
Featuring art by Joelle Jones and colors by Jordie Bellaire, the cover depicts Talia and Selina facing off with blades at the ready.
While both women have extensive histories with Batman, it's Talia's son Damien Wayne who now occupies the role of Robin in Gotham City. One can't help but feel a little bad for the kid, seeing how his mom and new stepmother are already looking to kill each other. Here's the description of Batman #35, from the DC Comics solicitation:
“Dream of Me” part three! Has the Caped Crusader passed the point of no return? Turns out he’s going to need a little help from his friends, but this help comes with a downside: Batman’s true intentions will be exposed.
Batman #34 in on sale now. Issue #35, by writer Tom King and artists Jones and Bellaire, arrives Nov. 15.
