Batman and Catwoman will crossover for “Showdown” by Chip Zdarsky, Tini Howard, Jorge Jimenez and Nico Leon. from DC Comics.
This may be announced at WonderCon this weekend, but it hasn’t been announced yet. That is, of course, what Bleeding Cool is for. DC Comics will be crossing over the current Batman and Catwoman ongoing titles into a new crossover being dubbed “Showdown”. Written by series writers Chip Zdarsky and Tini Howard, and drawn by series artist Jorge Jimenez (returning after a break to draw Netflix’s Nemesis Reloaded) and Nico Leon. And for all you Doubting Thomas Waynes out there, we have the proof.
And this cover suggests that Batman and Catwoman will not be on the same side. Quite a gash across his chest, don’t you think? Here are the DC Comics June 2023 solicits for both titles in case you can see where this is going…

With Selina freshly out of jail, Eiko Hasigawa has some unfinished business as Catwoman that Selina confronts her about. Meanwhile, Selina has some unfinished business of her own…and pays a visit her sister, Maggie.
