Before The Bat Wedding – Tom King and Tony S Daniel Will Tell A Joker Story

Posted by March 21, 2018 Comment

Batman writer Tom King has crafted fake Batman solicitations for DC Comics before, in order to hide the truth of what he is planning.

To hide the proposal and upcoming marriage of Batman and Catwoman, Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, he faked solicits for Batman #33-35, hiding that it was called The Rules Of Engagement, pretending that it was A Dream Of Me instead.

Well, the solicits for the upcoming arc by Tom King and Tony S Daniel states that it is called The Travelers. And indeed, its name may be staying, but what about the rest?

As seen in a number of DC Comics’ titles today, it looks like the upcoming Travelers arc on Batman by Tom King and Tony S Daniel will, in fact, be a Joker arc.

An add is running for Batman #45 but there’s no sign of Booster Gold or implied time travel. Instead the line ‘The Joker runs Gotham. Where is Batman?’

That of course could be the result of such time-meddling. Or… it could be something else.

But it looks like we will be getting a proper Joker story before the wedding after all. Did he not get his wedding invite?

Maybe more than just the Booster Gold time travel story promised? Maybe something entirely different, before the Batwedding?

BATMAN #45
(W) Tom King (A) Sandu Florea, Tony S. Daniel
“THE TRAVELERS” part one! Booster Gold has come to Gotham City, and he’s enlisting Batman and Catwoman to go on a time-traveling mission to rescue…Booster Gold! It seems a younger Booster Gold has gone back in time to kidnap an even younger version of himself, and to rescue his own past, Booster must pursue both of his previous incarnations through Batman’s history to find out what is going on. The start of a new story that will sow the seeds for a whole new epic to come-and also the return of Master Class artist Tony S. Daniel (DAMAGE) to BATMAN!

BATMAN #46

“THE TRAVELERS” part two! Booster Gold’s wedding present has screwed up Batman’s past, and done even more damage to his present. Now, with the Caped Crusader himself refusing to cooperate, the only way for Booster to correct this runaway timeline is to get Catwoman on his side. But with her own past altered, can he make Catwoman recognize the qualities in her husband-to-be that brought them together in the first place? Plus, if Batman isn’t doing his job, Gotham City may become way more dangerous than our bumbling time-traveler might be ready for.
