Batman #50 Jim Lee and Scott Williams Diamond Retailer Exclusive

This variant was available from exclusive retailer events hosted by Diamond Comic Distributors at NYCC (New York Comic Con) and SDCC (San Diego Comic Con). Note that the variant has no barcode or price and is both sketched (by Jim Lee) and inked (by Scott Williams) and should not be confused with the 1:100 pencil sketched variant.

Batman #50 Batman & Catwoman Wedding Invitation

The Wedding of Batman & Catwoman

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. Superstar scribe Tom King officiates the sure-to-be-offbeat nuptials, joined by an all-star lineup of guest classic Bat-artists doffing their hats to the lucky couple in a series of pre-wedding flashback scenes sure to set the romantic mood.
