Batman Spies on Catwoman's Bachelorette Party in April

Batman Spies on Catwoman’s Bachelorette Party in April

Posted by January 19, 2019 Comment

We all know that Batman loves to spy on people. Besides brutally assaulting mentally ill criminals while dressed in a bat costume at nighttime in Gotham City, illegal surveillance is pretty much Batman’s biggest hobby. In April’s Batman #68, which we’ve got early thanks to an anonymous 4chan leak, Batman takes his creepy surveillance to the next level by spying on his own almost-wife during her bachelorette party. Well. Sort of. He’s busy being tormented by Knightmares, so it’s actually a dream party.

But does it really make a difference?

Maybe not, but if nothing else, at least he’s not doing it on purpose. He’s spying against his will, which must be quite the conundrum. On the one hand, he (and readers) are reliving one of the most traumatic events in recent memory, the bait-and-switch Bat/Cat wedding. On the other hand, he’s doing one of his favorite things: violating the privacy of others.

Complex moral issues rule the day in April, when Batman #68 and #69 hit stores. Check out the solicits below:

Batman is making his way to the end of his Knightmares, but his unseen enemy has a few more tricks up his sleeve. It’s time once again to stick a knife into the Caped Crusader’s broken heart, letting the groom-that-could-have-been peer in on the bachelorette (or should that be *Catchelorette*?) party that never was. Artist Amanda Conner (HARLEY QUINN) rejoins the Bat-family for this month’s special story–because who else you gconna invite to a shindig like this?

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
