For the wedding, Batman and Catwoman decide to invite only one witness each. However, DC has invited 31 guest artists to tell the wedding story. It’s rare to see such divergent styles in one comic. It is fascinating to see how each artist highlights different aspects of the characters.
Batman/Catwoman: The Wedding Album is highly recommended for its artwork and flashbacks. The plot and bang up action are not the focus here. For that, read Batman: Preludes to the Wedding. But for art fans or aspiring comic artists, this is a great choice. 5 stars!
Thanks to DC Comics and NetGalley for an advanced copy.
In any case, if you forget about the lack of development, King does write touching somewhat poetic narrations, which is what you get here, even though there are inconsistencies between the writer and artists (like not even getting the eye color right for example). If you are into this kind of thing, and you can ignore the other things I mentioned, then this is a beautiful story all the way until the end which will leave you feeling a bit cheated considering everything that leads up to this somewhat unsatisfying yet predictable end. It wasn't even that I didn't expect the it to end the way it did, I just thought there would be a better more interesting explanation, but I should've known better considering the writer's current record. Still, apparently we can look forward to 50 more issues that will hopefully explain things because I guess King takes a bit longer to get to his point than other writers.
At least the art is nice if you are open to the mix of various styles and many acclaimed artist are involved. The variants alone make this not a complete waste, but in the back of my mind I still feel like DC did this to over-hype an underwhelming story just to make money and push a new Catwoman series on us, but I can't blame them. They are a business, and we may have to gotten our hopes up for nothing, but at the end of the day, you get an almost romantic story and some nice art, and the last story about Pre-crisis Batman/Catwoman was probably the best thing about the entire wedding arc. It shows what a well developed Batman/Catwoman relationship is supposed to look like and only makes me miss the good old days more.
This volume collects Batman issues 24, 44 and 50. There are also things collected from across a lot of the history of these two characters. Issue 24 recalls the proposal, along with interposing a conversation between Batman and Gotham Girl. It includes my favorite recent quotable Batman saying: "I'm not Batman because I like being Batman. I'm Batman because I'm Batman."
Issue 44 is Catwoman picking out her wedding dress in a very Catwoman fashion. The dress was designed by artist Joelle Jones who is fast becoming a favorite. I love how this issue plays with past Bat and Cat encounters with retro looks and costumes during flashbacks.
Issue 50 leads up to the wedding, and is filled with one page panels by various Batman teams. It's more tribute than story, but the story leads up to that last panel.
Included are all of the variant covers for issue 50 and there are a bunch. There is also a look inside the script for issue #44 and it includes reprints of bits of the original stories it references. There are also parts of Joelle Jones original and sketch ideas for "the dress."
Overall a nice celebration package full of some nice tributes. I enjoyed this.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
