Regarding BATMAN #49

After issue 48 ended with a literal bang (and Batman down), this one escalates immediately into a cinematic showdown between Selina Kyle and The Joker.

But writer Tom King quickly changes the confrontation’s nature and tone to deliver maximum emotion and suspense in clever ways that pages upon pages of furious fisticuffs never could, capably concluding “The Best Man” with one of the greatest Catwoman stories AND one of the greatest Joker stories ever told!

Regarding BATMAN #48

“The Best Man” begins!

Deep inside one of Gotham City’s most beautiful cathedrals, The Joker cruelly kicks a young couple’s wedding into a sickening spiral of slaughter. He knows his disgusting deed will bring Batman, and it’s one of the nastiest and grandest plans The Clown Prince of Crime has ever perpetrated.

Because, you see, he’s well aware of Batman’s impending nuptials… and he’s jealous that he wasn’t invited. Unleashing such carnage at a wedding, when Batman clearly has his own vows on his mind, is a stroke of vile genius; maybe, just maybe, the very venue will throw Batman off his game just enough.

It’s enough.
