Comic Book Review: Batman #50

Although we should have all known, the disappointing outcome of Batman #50 isn't what was advertised to us and leaves so many missed opportunities on the table. This issue shows that writer Tom King could easily transition over to romantically-inclined novels (that's not a jab) or other forms of more respected literature. 

Many great artists get a chance to showcase their unique Batman and Catwoman-inspired handiwork with full-page spreads of their personal takes on the two characters, providing a stroll down memory lane that has something for everyone. Most of the issue has our two star-crossed lovers fondly reflecting on how they feel about each other until it all spirals into sadness.

It’s the wedding you never thought you’d see in Batman #50! The Batrimony is real as Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle are set to tie the knot in an event that will reshape Gotham City. All their friends (and a few enemies?) will be party to a coupling for the ages.

Batman #50 is written by Tom King. Joëlle Jones, David Finch, Mikel Janin, Various, Lee Bermejo, Frank Miller, José Luis García-López, Ty Templeton, Becky Cloonan, Andy Kubert, Neal Adams, Rafael Albuquerque, and Mitch Gerads provide artwork for the issue. It's rated T for Teen and contains violence and adult themes. The book is a super-sized 50 pages.
