It’s the Bat and the Cat in Batman/Catwoman #1 in December

After lots of anticipation, DC has announced that Batman/Catwoman #1 arrives December 1 from Tom King, Clay Mann, Tomeu Morey, and Clayton Cowles.

The series is told across three separate timelines and continues King’s story from his run on Batman.

Gotham City. Today. Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle have rekindled their long-running, on-again, off-again relationship. Believing all obstacles are removed from their path, they once again begin operating as a duo in their secret lives: Batman and Catwoman working together to fight crime.

There’s the past, when The Bat and The Cat first fell in love. Did they meet on the street? Or was it on a boat? Rooftops, ramparts and gargoyles, and over 80 years of fans that have read their comics, are their only witnesses.

There’s the distant future, where after a long and happy marriage Bruce Wayne has passed away. Selina Kyle decides to settle an old score without having to worry about the Batman objecting. Catwoman is serving a very cold dish: Revenge.

The series is also the hotly wanted debut of Andrea Beaumont, a.k.a. Phantasm to the DC Universe. Beaumont’s return questions how each character operates in their costume and personal lives and threatens Bruce and Selina’s future.

But what about the Joker? He robber Batman and Catwoman of their wedding. Any change in the Dark Night’s life will be result in more chaos from the Clown Prince of Crime.

Batman/Catwoman, by Tom King, Clay Mann, Tomeu Morey, and Clayton Cowles, edited by Jamie S. Rich and Brittany Holzherr, will launch a 12-issue run on December 1, 2020, with a cover by Mann and Morey and a variant cover by Jim Lee, Scott Williams, and Alex Sinclair with a main cover by Travis Charest. New issues will ship monthly with a skip month planned for a Batman/Catwoman Special in June 2021, and the series will carry DC’s Black Label content descriptor, indicating content appropriate for readers ages 17+.

With 28 story pages in each issue, Strange Adventures is an ambitious, thrilling, shocking, and beautiful 12-issue saga that will push Adam Strange to the breaking point—and beyond!

The Eisner Award-winning team behind DC’s Mister Miracle and The Sheriff of Babylon, writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads, are joined by fan-favorite artist Evan “Doc” Shaner to bring you Strange Adventures, an epic tale in the tradition of Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns, and DC: The New Frontier—a story of blood, war, and love that readers will talk about for years to come.

Created in 1958 for DC by Julius Schwartz and Murphy Anderson and first appearing in Showcase #17, Adam Strange is the hero of the planet Rann, a man famous throughout the galaxy for his bravery and honor.

And now a surprise DC hero will have to choose between saving Adam Strange and saving the world.

A story like no other, with 28 story pages in each issue, Strange Adventures is an ambitious, thrilling, shocking, and beautiful 12-issue saga that will push Adam Strange to the breaking point—and beyond!

Archer Coe, master hypnotist, is back to performing by day and consulting for the rich and influential by night.

Her mother’s untimely death has sent her father into a deep depression, and a self-proclaimed mystic, Jane Collins, has taken advantage of his grief by promising him an audience with his dead wife. Archer knows Jane, and he believes she’s a fraud. But he has trouble convincing Nicolette’s father, and as strange happenings unfold around him, Archer soon has trouble convincing himself. It’s clear Jane holds some power—but it’s also clear that Jane has no idea how much. Will Archer save Jane and the Hardys before her power becomes uncontrollable? Or will this case be his final curtain?
