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.
The Jim Lee cover art is also used on some of the other cover variants shown above. From top to bottom, left to right they are (Diamond code / barcode suffix in brackets where applicable):

- Jim Lee 1:100 pencil variant (APR188990 / 05071)
