With the countdown to Batman and Catwoman's wedding on, a slew of artists have been releasing variant covers for Tom King's upcoming union. Now, artist Dave Johnson has joined the artistic chorus with a take of his own, as revealed by King himself.
Johnson's cover pits Selina Kyle in an elegant light, albeit a sinister one as she rocks her black and white formal wear. As expected, it marries both aspects of Catwoman and Batman, with bats on the gown as well as lifting the dress; something Selina's crew of black cats take offense to in a delightfully playful concept.
Several artists have already debuted their variant covers for the celebratory event in Batman #50, including Joe Madureira's epic interlocking variant, Mark Brooks, Frank Cho, Josh Middleton, Francesco Mattina, and of course Ale Garza, who has already created a classic cover by showcasing Catwoman’s rather amazing 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.
