Tom King and John Paul Leon Reunite for July’s Batman/Catwoman Special

Some great romances are destined to be.

This July, the Eisner nominated “Black Death in America” team of Tom King and John Paul Leon will reunite for a one-shot interlude in Tom King, Clay Mann and Tomeu Morey’s twelve-issue Batman/Catwoman comic book maxiseries. This is a special one-off issue, meticulously illustrated by John Paul Leon (Batman: Creature of the Night) with color by Dave Stewart. The story traces the life of Selina Kyle from her earliest days to her entry into the criminal underworld. And it reveals that Bruce was actually a presence in her life all along.

The Early Years

The Batman/Catwoman series shows readers the romance between Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle as it changed over their lives. But what about their connections from before they became costumed adventurers? Whether it was fate or coincidence, this story gives even more reasons why Selina and Bruce’s connection is one of the most enduring love affairs in comics.

Batman/Catwoman Special #1 by Tom King, John Paul Leon and Dave Stewart arrives on July 20 with card stock covers by John Paul Leon, Lee Weeks (variant) and Bill Sienkiewicz (variant). The Batman/Catwoman Special will retail for $5.99 US for 48 pages and will carry DC’s Black Label content descriptor, indicating content appropriate for readers ages 17+.
