Dawn of DC continues in the fall with a crossover between Gotham’s most tumultuous couple.
DC Comics has announced a new crossover coming in the fall — Batman/Catwoman: The Gotham War, part of their Dawn of DC publishing initiative. The story will run through two one-shots, the regular Batman and Catwoman titles, and a miniseries that will focus on The Red Hood.
Chip Zdarsky and Tini Howard, writers of Batman and Catwoman, have been working toward this story since they each started on their respective title.
“From the moment Tini and I started working on these titles, we realized we had a huge opportunity to build toward something that would shake up the power structure of Gotham City,” Zdarsky said. “The Gotham War is just that: relationships explode, relationships are formed, and it all leads to massive changes! Being able to take these kinds of big swings together has been extremely exciting.”

Selina Kyle returns to Gotham City in January to do what she does best.
DC’s ongoing Catwoman title will see a change in its creative team this January, as writer Tini Howard, artist Nico Leon and colorist Jordie Bellaire take over the title with issue #39.
The new team will take Catwoman back to Gotham City, promising Catwoman will be “doing what she does best: stealing from crime bosses, and looking fine while doing it.”
“I don’t want to go too far into what we’re doing in the book yet – Selina and I agree that there’s nothing more tantalizing than a taste – but you should know that I came in with a lot of plans,” Howard said in her Substack newsletter. “I’m building to a Catwoman-centric tale the likes that Gotham has never seen. The shape of this story, what makes it required reading for Selina Kyle’s life all became so clear to me as a I worked on this. I’m standing on the shoulders of giants who told my favorite Catwoman tales like Brubaker, Cooke and Valentine, and I’m so grateful.“
