Every week, you get to vote on which stories to keep reading and which ones to drop.
**So let’s talk about Batman: The Wedding
In these tales from BATMAN #48-50, Just as the Bat and the Cat are starting to think it might be easier to just elope than go through with their wedding plans, The Joker kidnaps his old foe—but will he try to talk him out of his marriage plans, or just bash his brains in? It all concludes in the historic wedding issue! Includes the wedding prelude story from DC NATION #0.
Plus there is an optional tie-in Preludes to the Wedding
Wedding bells are ringing in Gotham City…and the criminal underworld is determined to silence them! Following The Joker’s discovery that Batman and Catwoman are getting married, Gotham City’s villains jump into action. If they are going to lose one of their own, it’s not going to be so their greatest foe can be happy! This new title collects Robin vs. Ra’s Al Ghul #1, Nightwing vs. Hush #1, Batgirl vs. The Riddler #1, Red Hood vs. Anarky #1 and Harley Quinn vs. The Joker #1.
WHAT TO READ
There are three different series which tell the complete story. For us, we are only reading DC Nation #0 (Story 1) and Batman #48-50. You do NOT need prior knowledge to enjoy it, but it is useful. There is also a fun mini-series tie in which consists of 5 one-shots about a Batman Character fighting an iconic batman villain with a wedding thrown in. Or maybe not? you decide. Chronologically, the preludes come before the Wedding
DC Nation #0 Story #1
Optional Tie-in: Batman: Prelude to the Wedding mini-series
