Love is in the air! And so is heat. Lots and lots of heat in this exclusive preview of this week’s Batman #33. It was just two weeks ago that Selina Kyle finally gave her answer to Bruce Wayne’s marriage proposal, and now the two of them are riding off in the sunset. In the desert. In lethal, triple-digit temperatures.
You think you know Gotham and its most famous resident. You may even think you know his adversaries and allies. Well, this fall, forget all that you know as we present a new vision of Gotham, care of master comic book creator Enrico Marini.
It was just about a year ago that BATGIRL AND THE BIRDS OF PREY was announced as a part of Rebirth and DC fans were introduced to its sibling writing team of Julie and Shawna Benson. Since then, we’ve seen the newly reunited Batgirl, Black Canary and Huntress take on—and eventually team up with—a slightly shady new Oracle, outsmart a crime lord who happened to be Helena’s mother and go toe-to-toe, figuratively speaking, with the sinister Snake Gang. And that was just in the very first story arc!
Look, who doesn’t like a good rematch? And we got an absolutely great one this week in BATMAN #13, the final issue in Tom King and Mikel Janín’s taut “I Am Suicide” storyline. For the past two months, Batman and his own personal Suicide Squad have infiltrated Santa Prisca, the island prison that’s home to Bane—the brilliant, powerful bruiser who is one of the only villains to ever defeat Batman in hand to hand combat.
