Batman and Catwoman say “I do" in DC’s Batman #50, the culmination to one of the longest running on-again, off-again “romances” in comic book history. The relationship between Selina Kyle and Bruce Wayne began in Batman’s first solo series, where Catwoman was introduced in Batman #1 during the spring of 1940, along with The Joker and Hugo Strange. She served as more of an antagonist than a true villain like Joker, with her motivations more led by greed than evil or chaos, though this did not stop her from holding her own against Batman or whomever got in her path.
Despite varying artists and writers throughout the years, each interaction of Batman and Catwoman was a subtle mixture of confrontation and flirtation. Finally, over 75 years later, “The Bat and The Cat” are finally tying the knot and fans have plenty to celebrate. Expect not only the happy union of Bruce and Selina in Batman #50, but also over 20 variants (and counting) from an all-star lineup of artists like Tyler Kirkham, Francesco Mattina, Frank Cho, and many more. Batman #50 is an unforgettable and momentous occasion in comic book history!

Justice League of America #1 (1987) was a new take on the classic team up title, and many felt exactly the quirky shot in the arm the series needed to reinvent itself for the second volume. The 113-issue series ran until 1996 and is remembered for its classic storytelling and artwork, comedic undertones, and well written dialog. Standing on the shoulders of this great series is #1's cover, marking itself as an icon in the industry. Created by Kevin Maguire and Terry Austin, it is one of the most recognizable covers in all of comics, its reputation assisted in no small means by the many homages artists have paid it over the years.
