The Bat And The Cat Have A Chat In Tom King And Mitch Gerads’ ‘Batman’ #14 [Exclusive Preview]
DC Rebirth has been all about bringing back what fans love about classic characters, and for recent issues of Batman that includes the palpable tension between Batman and Catwoman as they try to resolve their feelings for each other with their very different lives.
The most recent Batman arc, "I Am Bane" featured Catwoman as part of Batman's own personal Suicide Squad as they ventured into Santa Prisca to confront Bane and retrieve the Psycho Pirate. As part of the deal, Catwoman's death penalty for killing over two-hundred people is set to be revoked, but we readers don't yet know the circumstances as to who she killed or what she did it.
This issue also sees regular writer King joined by his Sheriff of Babylon co-creator Mitch Gerads in an issue that marks the artist's DC Universe debut. Together, King and Gerads put together one of the most lauded comics of last year --- it won Best Crime Comic in our own end of year awards --- and the prospect of the pair teaming up for Batman stories is positively tantalizing.
