A mysterious corpse. A magical box. Gotham’s most dangerous villains. And the key to figuring out what happened is…the Joker? Oh boy.

Writer Tom King crafted epic adventures of the Dark Knight over his 85-issue run on Batman, in the process redefining the rocky, romantic relationship between Batman and Catwoman. King returns to the Bat and the Cat with DC Black Label series Batman/Catwoman, a 12-issue saga illustrated by King’s frequent collaborator, superstar artist Clay Mann. Batman/Catwoman takes place over three timelines—the past, present and future of the titular couple—with the Joker acting as a thorn in their sides throughout. Plus, Batman/Catwoman features the comic book debut of the Phantasm—from the beloved 1993 animated film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm! Issue #1 is on DC UNIVERSE INFINITE now. Also new on service, Justice League: Endless Winter #1, co-written by Ron Marz and Andy Lanning and illustrated by Howard Porter and Marco Santucci, starts a nine-part story with the Justice League facing an extinction-level global storm thanks to the Frost King! And DCeased: Dead Planet #6 by Tom Taylor and Trevor Hairsine, the penultimate issue of that series, brings the horror sequel towards its climax.
