Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to witness the culmination of months of storylines with the wedding of the Bat and the Cat. Do I take Batman #50, to have and to hold, to be as good as I’d hoped? I… don’t.

I know, I’m disappointed too. But this bumper-sized wedding issue is unfortunately very underwhelming. Bruce and Selina prepare for their big night on the rooftops (where else to marry but the place they’ve been chasing each other for decades?) and… then there’s the end. In between?

I don't how good this issue was written or how beautiful those pages were drawn by several artists (and they are indeed good and beautiful). The story betrayed me. King betrayed the fans.

This issue should be renamed "Batman : How not to write an arc 101". Contrary to most people, I'm not disappointed the wedding didn't happen. DC stands for Divine Cowards after all. It's no surprise they refused to change their main title's dynamic. The recipe's worked for ages, do not try and shake things up, god forbid! Even though I had a tiny bit of hope, it's them going for it that would have been surprising. Therefore, the wedding not happening left me indifferent.

But boy, am I disappoint

Nice art! Well written! It’s Just a bit of a bummer that they hyped this issue 50 for months to Just have it be another teaser

Let me begin by saying that I think Tom King is a brilliant writer, easily the best working in mainstream comics today; his Mister Miracle run is probably the most significant work of comics in years, perhaps of this decade. I've been following this Batman run since the Rooftops two-parter (#14-15) which I still count among the best batman I've ever read. His voice with these characters is so distinct that it feels weird now when I read other writers using them.

You are invited to the wedding of the Cat and the Bat

There are a bunch of guest artist and writers with panels. It lives up to the build up to issue #50.

First off, I am not reading the original printing that is featured on GR. I am reading the Jim Lee variant cover  photo FullSizeRender.jpg
I would have given it five stars if it weren't for that ending. (view spoiler)

I always loved the relationship between Batman/Bruce Wayne and Catwoman/Selina Kyle. I especially liked the whole thing between them in Batman: Hush. But I'd never thought they'd end up together like that.

Will I stop reading this series?


This was a really weak explanation for a tired and old twist.

I expect more from Tom King.

I woke up to spoilers for this from the New York Times (NOT cool, NYT). Actual rating not reflecting comic; going by what the NYT said I'm disappointed, but I'd be lying if I said I was surprised.

Well, there seems to be a lot of hate for this issue but I enjoyed it. No spoilers from me and I'm not going to go into a detailed analysis of the story. If you are not a fan of Tom King's Batman then this probably isn't for you. That's a shame though because it looks fantastic! In my opinion, it's worth buying just for the many guest artists' different interpretations of Batman and Catwoman. Comics are a visual medium and there's some beautiful artwork in here.

The writing is mostly solid. There
The two highlights of this issue:

1. “And you were another man asserting your will. Trying to lord over a world you didn’t understand.” Some great tea right here.

2. Alfred sitting down next to Bruce and hugging him after delivering a sass attack.

All told, I wasn’t impressed. It ended just like I expected it to and I heartily object to the “happy”thing. I am so ready move on and get passed the drama that NYT article caused.

Massively disappointing despite some great art.

A let down, pure and simple.

Gave it an extra star for the sweet inclusion of some of my favorite artists. DC is trash and doesn't care about their readers, though.

Okay, I waited until the day after to review Batman #50 and if you have not read the comic book that was marketed as the wedding event of the year, stop now. There are Spoilers ahead!

Tom King has taken a pretty intimate portrayal over the last 50 books with the Dark Knight and has done some serious soul searching with this character. From self destruction, to suicidal tendencies, to inadequacies, to love. Like it or not, this has been a comic book run that centers a bit more around Bruce Wayne t

First, I would say I didn’t really care for the “interludes” that were letters from Catwoman and Batman to each other with a splash page from a guest artist. The art was fine in most cases, just the letters were really dumb, like a lot of the dialogue between Selina and Bruce is tbh (namely, that issue where the only dialogue was them saying bat and cat to each other).


Secondly, I read the NYT article that spoiled the issue last week when it came out. I really really don’t get why DC did

So this was kind of a let down for me. Thanks to DC the ending was sort of spoiled online a day before I got to read it and so I went into it more so just wanting to get through it then being on the edge of my seat like I think I was supposed to see. But what is here is great, all the stuff with Alfred helping Bruce get ready was pretty much just feels porn but I loved it and the structure of the issue was great too, really gives off the feeling that King has a tone of Respect for these characte ...more

I saw the hype on Twitter about the NYT review and was frustrated at people's reaction. I love what Tom King has done so far and the Wedding takes place over a few issues. It is a good story so far and good stories have conflict and things don't go smoothly, that's what makes them good stories. I am excited to read the next few issues and see where King is taking us.

I feel robbed.
It’s not as if Mephysto comes and undo years for the sake of it, but it’s hard to digest anyway.
I was so waiting for this.
Anyway it is very well written and full of citations, but it’s not what I would have liked.
And it’s not what DC was selling

Not sure what this was. I thought there was going to be a wedding. Artwork was good. Story was lacking.

How can anyone write something like this (and most of this Batman run) after writing actual masterpieces like Vision, Omega Men and Mister Miracle?? I just don't get it, Tom.

Beautifully orchestrated book with an ending I expected. Wish the ending could have been more original or creative to match the rest of the hard work and marketing that went into this issue. Overall still happy to add this to my Batman collection.

Though.. Except that Alfred moment it was a bit letdown to me. But last panel - woohoo.
