BATMAN / CATWOMAN #3 delivers another stunning issue from the one and only dream team of Tom King & Clay Mann!

It’s been The Joker all along, you see. Selina Kyle knows this.

Early in her career as Catwoman, he was there to mess things up for her.

Same with later, when she and Batman were finally getting together…for the third time, but still. That time stuck. No thanks to The Joker.

Or to Phantasm, who now has her sights set on Catwoman because she thinks that will be her in to get after The Joker herself.

And she has to do it before Batman gets to him first.

ARIA HEAVENLY CREATURES one-shot brings the return of ARIA, and adds another piece of the puzzle as the new IMAGE shared superhero universe is born!

So, there’s a chance we may be totally wrong about this — but: guessing what’s happening, and what’s coming, is part of the fun of comics, right? 🙂

Seriously tho: after the stunning RADIANT BLACK #1 last week, and the events of Donny Cates CROSSOVER, it’s obvious that there’s something big brewing with the idea of an IMAGE COMICS shared superhero universe, and this week, a classic fav character for IMAGE, ARIA, returns with a special one-shot!

Lady Kildare, expatriate princess of Faerie, is living a life of aristocratic decadence among Victorian London’s social elite.

One night, while slumming among the city’s notorious underbelly, Kildare and her companions come across an illicit underground sideshow boasting “Creation’s Most Wondrous and Perverse Curiosities.”

The centerpiece of this bizarre menagerie?

A genuine angel held in captivity! This sets the stage for an unlikely alliance and the beginning of an unforgettable tale of mystery, adventure, and retribution.
