Batman and Catwoman eventually got married, with Superman and Lois Lane witnessing

In the summer of 2018, the comics world was in a frenzy when the New York Times spoiled the twisted ending to Batman and Catwoman’s wedding three days before the issue was published. The twist, of course, was that they didn’t get married at all: Catwoman left him at the rooftop altar. But all was not lost! Writer Tom King had always described him as notorious Batman #50 as the center of his story — and in late June, he and artist Clay Mann finally brought Batman and Catwoman together to tie the knot Batman/Catwoman #12.

Of course, it wasn’t exactly smooth sailing from there to here. In 2019, King decided to end its run early, ending the story in a 12-issue miniseries that was delayed several times, including due to Diamond Comics’ COVID-19 shutdown, and was slow to hit shelves. But now we’ve finally seen Batman and Catwoman tie the knot:

They did it Vegas style, but instead of Elvis impersonating the bored clerk Batman.

What else is happening on the pages of our favorite comics? We’ll tell you. Welcome to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly list of books our comics editor has enjoyed over the past week. It’s part society pages about the lives of superheroes, part recommended reading, and part look at this cool art. There may be some spoilers. There may not be enough context. But there will be great comics. (And if you missed the last issue, read this.)

Yes, according to King and Mann’s Batman/Catwoman #12, in Gotham City you can get married to a guy dressed as Batman, Vegas style. And in a callback to one of King’s Run’s best installments, also drawn by Clay Mann, Bruce asks Superman and Lois Lane to be their last-minute witnesses, and the ecstatic couple arrive at super speed.

is this canon? Not strictly speaking – Batman and Catwoman aren’t married in Chip Zdarsky’s new one Batman run that has just begun. But in the vast potential future history of Batman and Catwoman’s relationship as seen in King’s in Flash Forwards Batman run, so the two kings of Gotham City have tied the knot.

You may have heard that Substack made a big push into comics last year, giving creators a ton of cash in exchange for doing whatever they wanted with the platform, with no intellectual property strings attached. Chip Zdarsky’s public domaina family story about the intellectual property rights to a multi-billion dollar international film franchise based on a goofy superhero is one of the first to be physically available, having first been published via its Substack newsletter.

Okay, yeah, yeah, Chip Zdarsky started writing too Batman A lot of stuff happened this week and for sure with the Penguin and a new villain called Failsafe and Tim Drake. But more importantly, Zdarsky and artist Belén Ortega created my new favorite DC Comics character of all time, the Executor, an impenetrable robot lawyer who manages the wills and estates of supervillains. This is the best thing that could ever happen.

The new series from Andrew Wheeler and Travis Moore is about Black Flamingo, a sexy gay international cat burglar of magical artifacts – seen here returning a golem to the descendants of that golem’s mortal lover – who definitely has no feelings for anyone or anything has and will definitely be forced to deal with it. I can’t wait to read more.

Just when you think the writers in the X-Men bullpen have explored all the different ways mutants interact with death now that they don’t have to stay dead, Al Ewing – with beautiful acting from his staff – uses the scrambling- Otherworld’s effect on mutant resurrection to recycle themselves if they ever tire of endless immortality.

Reader, I am angry. Tom King and David Marquez made a comic called Batman: Killing Time been telling a story about Catwoman and the Riddler trying to break free from a botched heist for five months. It’s called “Kill time.” It has a mysterious narrator who arranges every event in the comic, big or small, into specific timestamps and intervals. And yet somehow I didn’t see the, in hindsight, obvious twist coming: the real villain is the damn Watch King.

i’m so crazy Batman and Catwoman eventually got married, with Superman and Lois Lane witnessing
