After, let’s be honest… too long, comics are back. And there are some really weird things going on! For the first time in anyone’s memory, new comic books are hitting shelves on Tuesdays. COVID has truly changed everything we know about the world. But comics fans have been waiting way too long for some exciting titles. And now they’re here in the June comics selection.

Our gal Catwoman is turning 80 next year (and looking very good, if we meow say), and DC is celebrating with nothing less than with a huge soiree, invite only, packed with creators who mean the most to her and to whom she means the most! Stories featured in this 100-page spectacular include a tail-sorry, tale-that takes place at the end of the Brubaker/Stewart Catwoman run, in honor of artist Darwyn Cooke. Plus, Catwoman is caught by an exotic cat collector, runs into a wannabe thief trying to prove himself as her apprentice, encounters a mystery involving memorabilia from alternate continuities, and of course some Bat/Cat fun.
